Bell Ringing Recruitment

At All Saints’ Church Staplehurst, we have a successful band of ringers and are always on the lookout for new recruits to keep this tradition going.

Bells don’t automatically ring for services and weddings, it takes a team of people ringing together to achieve the sound that we’re all used to.

Ringing is open to all ages from about 10 upwards, and is a great thing to do with the whole family.  There is no obligation to attend services.

Our regular practice is from 19.00 to 21.15 every Tuesday evening.  Anyone is welcome to come up and see what goes on.  We can also be found in the Kings Head from 21.15 to late.  We’re normally the big table of people, don’t be afraid of coming and having a chat!

If you would like any more information, please contact – Sue Bassett – Tower Captain

Carers and Vulnerable Adults

Just to remind you that, in the right hand side of the church (by the charity notice board) is a basket containing useful information. Please take any you may find helpful.

There are identification forms to be filled in, should a confused person go missing. The Police and Kent Search and Rescue find these forms very helpful at what is a stressful time for relatives and carers.

There are leaflets for those people who feel anxious or vulnerable, or suffering physical or mental abuse, with telephone numbers for people or organisations who can help you. Please do look at them and use them.

Fundraising by Recycling

Recycle your inkjet cartridges and mobile phones to help us raise much-needed funds through Recycle4Charity.co.uk

Please take a special envelope from church and use to post your items to the company, or just pop them into the labelled box in church.
