For the time being there will be Morning Worship at 10.30am and Evening Prayer (BCP) at 4pm. Each service will be said, so there will be no hymns (although there will be music to listen to). We won’t be offering prayer ministry or refreshments, and the services will be quite short (about half an hour). 
Services of Holy Communion won’t be held for the foreseeable future. 
There will be special seating arrangements to facilitate social distancing and other measures to keep us all as safe as possible. The Welcome team will help to seat you and advise if you have any queries or qualms.

Advice from the Church of England, working closely with the Government, is that face coverings are strongly recommended when we gather indoors for worship. Please do bring one, therefore, and put it on when you enter the building. There are, of course, a few reasons why people might not be able to wear a face covering. If this is the case, please do not hesitate to say so and everyone will understand.

The weekly podcasts have now finished,(but can be found here on the podcast Archive page) but  we  will be making the morning sermon available on our website shortly after the service for those who wish to listen from home.(see above) If you wish to listen again to any of the services since Passion Sunday (29 March) - you can find all of them on our YouTube channel at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCC1-dp3S3Pz69eiS43MJo3Q/videos

We hope to see you at one of the services soon. If you wish to discuss any apspects of the re - opening, please give Peter a ring on 01255 675351

Thursday coffee & chat by Zoom will be taking a break from now on. It’s been a great way of keeping in touch, especially during the lockdown. However, recent low numbers suggest people are rediscovering the more traditional ways of linking up - which is good news! Thank you to all those who have taken part since we began at the end of May.

                                           From our Priest-in-Charge, the Rev’d Peter Edwards

Rev'd Peter Edwards 

Welcome to our website. Whether you’re a regular visitor or member of our church, or someone from the other side of the world, I am glad that you have expressed an interest in All Saints’. We are the parish church for the beautiful seaside town of Walton-on-the-Naze in North Essex. We exist to know God’s love and to show God’s love in our community. God’s love is made known to the world in Jesus Christ, and so it is in His name that we welcome you.

 

The parish church is open every day of the year. It stands in the heart of the High Street, its tower overlooking the town we serve. Whenever the bell is rung, public prayer is offered: each day of the week, morning and evening. I pray that the Lord would bless you richly as you explore these pages. Do come and see us when you can!
