Handbell Workshop


Are you interested in learning to ring handbells? If so, please join us for our FIRST WORKSHOP SESSION.

Refreshments will be provided. This is a new community group supported by the Staplehurst Bell Ringers (who have bought 25 handbells and we hope to play tunes).

This first session will be led by three experienced handbell ringers, who will bring some simple music for us to try out and will teach us what to do. No previous experience is necessary but after this first session we will be on our own so it’s very important that you attend this special first workshop.

Contact Sue Bassett on 01580 891917 or Email: Sue

Please let me know if you can attend

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.

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.

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.
