Lent Course 2024.

This year’s Lent Course will take place at West Hoathly Vicarage, North Lane RH19 4QF on four Saturdays during Lent. Each session will start at 11.30am and end with the option of staying for a simple lunch.

Rev’d Heather will be leading 4 reflective sessions in Lent based on the book ‘Lent in Plain Sight’ by Jill Duffield – which is a devotion through ten objects.

You can buy the book if you like but you don’t need to as Rev’d Heather will be adapting it to form four sessions and will provide the relevant material for each session. The sessions will each be stand-alone so if you can only make it to one morning that’s fine!

In order that sufficient materials and lunch can be prepared for each session, please let Heather know if you would like to be part of the group and whether you would like to stay on for lunch. Please sign up on the sheet in either church or email: heather.wilkin78@gmail.com or ring 01342 529047.

All sessions begin at 11.30am.

Saturday 24th February
Saturday 2nd March
Saturday 9th March
Saturday 16th March.

Chalk was blessed at our Epiphany service last Sunday. It is now available at the back of church, together with a short explanation of the tradition and a prayer. We encourage you to take some and use it to add the Epiphany blessing to your homes. We then invite you to take a photo of your blessed door and email it to Rev’d Heather. We would love to see all the homes across our parish blessed!

Angels Festival

The first day of Angels Festival 2023 was busy with many visitors enjoying the angels flying in the nave whilst sipping winter warmer drinks from our pop up bar at the back of church.

We were pleased to have a full church for Music and Readings at the end of the afternoon (the film will follow shortly) and hope you all enjoyed the specially selected programme.

All Saints is open as normal for you to visit and see the installation and there’ll be a team there on Friday and Saturday evening for Angel Lates.  Pop into church during Lates and see the installation fully lit and enjoy a drink from our pop up bar or enjoy it during the peace of the day.

Music and Readings on an Angelic theme.

This  promises to be a wonderful musical finale to the Angels Festival and Village Hall Market day. We’re promised a varied selection of music with major  highlights being Lena Touqan singing the Angel’s Farewell from Gerontius and a group of talented young singing Robbie Williams ‘Angels’  Don’t miss this very special event (free entry).

Angels – the build begins.

The Angels Festival is coming up fast at the end of next week.  Thanks to everyone who has helped this week – we’ve achieved a lot!

The frame’s now up and in position and on Monday the Angels will take flight. If you’d like to join and be part of the project just turn up – all help welcomed!

Today this fabulous angel silhouette was put up in the churchyard waiting for tomorrow evening’s Christmas light switch on by the Village Hall Committee.  Many thanks to Pauline and team for creating it!
