The English Heritage Lottery Grant received towards the repair of the chancel, nave, and south aisle roofs requires the church to be open for 40 days per annum, and 1 day is equivalent to 6 hours. Being open for services/events does not count towards this requirement. Consequently, we are looking to extend our small team of friendly and enthusiastic volunteers to facilitate this requirement.

All Saints’ is your village Church, a beautiful and historic community building, here for all in the parish and beyond. But it needs looking after, and keeping open, and for this we need volunteers to help. Could you lend a little of your time and talents for this?

The Open Church Rotas operate every Wednesdays 0900-1500, from the end of March to the end of September; one Friday per month 0930-1530, from May to September (inclusive); and one Saturday per month 0930-1530, from March to October (inclusive) i.e. this is not an all-year round commitment.

Volunteers do not have to be church-goers and do not have to do this on their own. The rotas are staffed by volunteers in ‘one-hour slots’ so there is flexibility to choose an hour to suit your other commitments, and it does not have to be a regular commitment. This is an opportunity to spend an hour away from the hustle and bustle of life, where you could read/exchange/buy a book, knit, chat, spend a quiet hour with a friend, enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, or find out more about the history of the church and the village. It is also an opportunity to meet some interesting people who will visit the church from far afield and locally.
