Staplehurst Parish Magazine – April Edition

With great regret, due to lockdown restrictions to curb the spread of corona virus, it will not be possible to deliver the Parish Magazine for the start of April.

The magazine has been printed and will be distributed to subscribers whenever this is possible.

Exceptionally, and with many thanks to our Editor, an online pdf version of the April magazine is available here to view and download.

For any subscriber who is housebound and not online, their carer is invited to collect a magazine from the wall of 1 North Down, TN12 0PG or arrange delivery by ringing 01580 891225.

Your help in safely communicating this information to others would be greatly appreciated.
We thank our customers for their patience and understanding: take care.

Worship with All Saints Church – at home

The Church of England has advised that Public Worship should be suspended until further notice: there will be no Sunday services or Wednesday morning communion held in church. Places of worship are to be closed.

All Saints Church continues to worship together, and to pray for our local community and the world.

A daily prayer booklet is available to download here, in the church porch or can be delivered to your home if you contact the parish office.

We encourage you to use this to pray together, from your own home. In the Rectory, Revd Silke Tetzlaff will be saying Morning Prayer at 9.30am and Evening Prayer at 5pm every Tuesday – Friday. Uploaded audio files of these services can be found on the website home page and the right hand side menu.

A Sunday morning worship service is led by the Rector at 9.30am.

These services are streamed please contact the church office for details of how to join in.

In all of this, we have three key aims:

Keeping people well

Keeping people praying

Keeping people connected

Open Gardens 2020

All Saints’ Church is organising Staplehurst Open Gardens over the weekend of July 4th/5th.

Gardens of all kinds are welcome: tiny or vast, tidy or natural, flowers or veg, expert or novice, exotic or just what likes growing!

If you would like to open your garden or could encourage a neighbour or friend to do so, please take a form from the back of church, download the form here or contact Anne or Mary.

This event will raise money for All Saints Church. It is also an enjoyable way to serve the village community. Please let us know if you can offer help in any way.

March Magazine Cover

The All Saints’ Church Magazine Committee is pleased to announce that there will be no increase in the cover price of the Staplehurst Parish Magazine for 2020, which remains at just £1.50 per issue. 

We believe that the Parish Magazine remains extraordinarily good value for £1.50.  However, you can make it even better value by paying an annual subscription of £14.00 To qualify for the reduced rate you must pay before the end of February; after that you will have to pay the full price of £1.50 per issue. 

Please pay by cheque if possible – it makes it easier and safer for all concerned.  Cheques should be made payable to “All Saints Staplehurst PCC” and handed to your distributor who will ensure the magazine treasurer receives it.

If you don’t currently have the Magazine delivered to your door each month you can arrange this by contacting Mary Henley on 01580 891225 or email Mary Henley

Thank you, and we look forward to your continued support.
