Response to the coronavirus pandemic: a message from the Rector and Churchwardens
From today, 17th March, all public acts of worship, groups and non-essential meetings run by All Saints have been suspended as we respond to the request from the Archbishops to act responsibly in the light of the most up to date information from the government. This means all public events listed in the church diary, the Herald and notice boards are cancelled or postponed.
Whilst the advice from Public Health England is going to drastically change the way we all live and work, we are committed to continuing to be a church that prays with and for the local community and that seeks to care for people in pastoral and practical ways working in partnership with other faith and community groups. Therefore over the coming days please refer to our website, Facebook and Twitter pages for updates on how we will be working differently during these weeks and possibly months of social distancing and isolation.
We will be looking at creative ways of enabling us to continue a pattern of worship making use of technology and in the first instance Morning Prayer will be live streamed on our Facebook page Monday to Friday at 9.00am. Online forums for bible study and prayer are also in the pipeline so do please keep checking back here.
We strongly advise everyone to follow the advice from Public Health England so we can all play our part in slowing the spread of the virus and protect the most vulnerable. As the Archbishops have written in their letter to all clergy 'being a part of the Church of England is going to look very different in the days ahead, our life is going to be less characterised by attendance at church on Sunday, and more characterised by the prayer and service we offer each day."
These are challenging times but we put our hope and trust in God our Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer and in the powerful acts of human kindness that we know we are all capable of.
The services at All Saints with Holy Trinity have gone on line. Details of these services can be found in our On Line Page
As part of the ongoing Church Maintenance we are starting a project to carry out some work on our Chancel amongst other areas of All Saints.
Although we do have an idea how much this project will cost we are raising funds to enable us to start the work. Work packages will be specified so that we can get prices for the work.

Easy Fund Raising helps swell the All Saints Loughborough Income
All Saints is registered with Easy Fundraising so that it can benefit from your on-line purchases without you giving us a penny directly. All Saints Loughborough is a charity and so it can benefit in this way.
By using the Easy Fundraising site to access your normal on-line retailers a portion of the money that you spend with them, typically better than 1.5%, is ‘donated’ to All Saints.
