Congratulations to the Reverend Gareth Morley. We are delighted that (by the time of publication on Sunday) Gareth Morley will have been Ordained Deacon in the Church of God. The service will have been held at St Mary's, Bletchley at 3pm on Saturday 26th September. We thank God for his work here among us and pray for God's blessing on his ministry. May he, Jenna, Elijah and Phoebe know much joy and fruitfulness during their time here. We look forward to the time when we can have a public celebration together at the Church and in the meantime hold him and his family in our thoughts and ongoing prayers for many blessings, from the congregation of All Saints’.
New Test and Trace QR code - For those of you with Smart phones, we have put a copy of our NHS QR Test and Trace code on the inner glass doors of the vestibule which you can scan using the NHS Covid-19 app. It would be greatly appreciated if you could scan this whenever you attend the building. If you do not have a smart phone there is no need to change what you have been doing.
We're back! We are delighted to announce our Mustard Seed Cafe has re-opened. We are providing table service and offering a selection of hot drinks, cakes and sweets. We warmly invite you to come and visit. Our opening times are Monday and Wednesday 11am to 1pm.
New database - we have decided to change the church database and have chosen iKnow Church. More information to follow.
*CANCELLED*Autumn Fayre Unfortunately, due to the new regulations relating to social gatherings which came into force on Monday 14 September, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the planned Autumn Fayre. Thank you to those of you who had already offered to help. Helen, Jacqui, Lis and Thistle
CHANGE OF DATE!!
Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have had to move our annual meeting (APCM) to Sunday 11 October following the morning Eucharist.
Would you like to be more involved in the All Saints Community?
At the annual meeting on 11 October, we need to elect 3 new members to our Parish Church Council (PCC) as representatives of our congregation. The PCC meets approximately 6 times a year to discuss issues, share ideas and to challenge each other's way of thinking. As well as working with our ministry team to fulfil God's mission, we also have legal duties with regard to safeguarding, the church buildings and finances but rest assured you do not need to be an expert in any of these!
We need to elect 2 churchwardens, 2 deputy wardens, 3 members of the PCC and 4 people to represent All Saints in the Wycombe Deanery. If you would like to be nominated, please visit the new Meetings page on our website < http://www.allsaintshighwycombe.org/meetings >. This page includes the nomination forms for the above positions. Please complete the relevant form and either forward it to two people to propose/second you and then return the completed version to me, or if you would prefer, I can contact people to propose/second.< firstname.lastname@example.org > Lis Burns
The Electoral Roll will be revised shortly ahead of our annual meeting. If you completed a form for the new roll in 2019 or more recently there is no need to complete another. If you now wish to be on the Roll, you can download the relevant form from the Meetings page on our website <http://www.allsaintshighwycombe.org/meetings > and hand it to Jackie Lock no later than 26th September. Errol Baker, Electoral Roll Officer.
Donations to All Saints - we really do appreciate everyone who has been able to make additional donations, helping to offset the drop in our regular income. Although limiting expenditure, we continue to focus on re-building and developing the work and mission of All Saints.

The account details are: "All Saints PCC High Wycombe", Sort code: 40-52-40, Account number:00012185. Alternatively, card donations can be made in church, or online through the "Supporting All Saints" page: <www.allsaintshighwycombe.org/supportallsaints>. We are also happy to receive cheques, posted to the Parish Office! Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for your continued prayer & generosity, John Lord (Treasurer): email@example.com or 07733001787.
