This Tuesday is the day many local children start their school adventure. This can be an exciting, and sometimes emotional time, for the children and their parents.
We would therefore like to invite parents of children starting reception to meet in the churchyard after dropping their children off at school, 9.30am - 10.30am or 1.45pm - 2.45pm. Come along and meet others for a drink and chat, whether you are celebrating or tearful, we would love to see you.
We have some log seats but do feel free to bring a picnic blanket or garden chair for more comfort. Please feel free to bring a drink and snack too.
We are delighted to announce that Baby Group is starting again, The group will meet outside, in a social distanced way in the churchyard. Thursdays, 2pm - 4pm (call in any time between these times.)
Due to current guidelines we can't provide drinks and snacks and baby toys as we usually would so please do bring along your own, and a picnic blanket/baby mat.
All newborns - walkers welcome with their carers. No need to book, just come along

Many of us normally attend the New Wine festival at this time of year, but as with many things this year it's moved online. Like normal New Wine but less rainy......
This will be a great opportunity to join with thousands of others in worship, receiving teaching, attend seminars and sofa sessions, with something for everyone, whatever you age and interest. Find out more here, or click on this link to see the full programme (pdf).
It is all FREE and the majority of it needs no sign up, you can watch it from the comfort of your own home or where ever you are on holiday (if you have some internet connection).
Plans are also afoot to add an All Saints Milton community feel – watch this space for more news coming soon.
Please do put the dates in your diary, 30th July – 2nd August.
At All Saints we are offering opportunities to ‘meet’ together in different ways to think about what we have experienced and learnt as well as having some social time together.
Online morning services at 11am.
On Friday, Saturday and Monday you can choose from two services. One called Impact and one Arena, each follow a series of teaching.
On Sunday morning there is one service for everyone.
After these services we hope to host a zoom chat where those who want to can meet together and discuss the service and end in prayer. We envisage these to be about 20minutes long, starting at 12.30pm.
From 1pm on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday we invite everyone to come down to the churchyard with a packed lunch or drink and have some time with others in the church family. We will have a few gazebo’s up offering shade/shelter. For those of you who can, please do bring down your own deckchairs/picnic blankets, there will be some chairs who are not able to bring any with them.
We will be following all guidelines regarding meeting together on church property, so everyone will be asked to use hand sanitiser (provided) as they enter and leave the churchyard and for people to sit 2 metres apart, unless they are from the same household.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, after the evening services (about 9.30pm) we invite those who would like to, to come down to the churchyard, again with chairs/blankets to enjoy a drink and chat about the day. We are sure everyone will do so but politely ask that you consider the neighbours of the church as you leave to go home ?
Prayer Ministry with Richard and Margaret Kimber is being offered over the weekend. This will be over the telephone and by appointment only.
Online after hours fun !
For those who want to join in some fun from the comfort of their own home they can join a ‘Gospel Night’ on Friday and a ‘Quiz’ on Sunday Night.
Both of these online events start at 9.15pm and there are links on the programme (link at the top of this page)
n line with the latest guidance from the Church of England and following risk assessment, All Saints looks forward to welcoming you back into the Church building for some services. Services will start with the 8am Sunday Holy Communion services on Sunday 2nd August, with a 3pm Afternoon Service to align with the outdoor childrens activities.
There will also be a midweek service at 2pm on Wednesdays.
Because of physical distancing recommendations the number of seats is limited, so to manage this and avoid disappointment if you arrive and we're already full, we are reserving seats, booked online (free, via Eventbrite). Click here to reserve your places (any service). Each booking is for a pair of seats. If you are coming on your own you will need to reserve a single pair of seats and if two people from the same household are coming together then they reserve 1 pair of seats between them. If you have issues with online booking you can call 07835 567171 to reserve.
Note that we are intending to livestream the Sunday services so please join us that way if you prefer. Further information will be posted here.
As sung worship is still not permitted, the 10-30am Sunday services remain online only for the moment but we are looking into other styles of service that would work with the current restrictions.
More details below -
Friday prayer in church is restarting from Friday 24th July. All welcome to spend some time in prayer. We will use the socially distanced main body of the church, and the entry and exit will be via the south door (the big wooden door opposite the Rectory).
