All Saints’ Church Staplehurst is normally open for prayer and reflection every day.


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.

Memorial Service for the Bereaved

Memorial Service for the Bereaved at All Saints Church, Staplehurst
You are warmly invited to our Memorial Service

Dear All
This year we are once again holding our Memorial Service for the Bereaved on Sunday a week after Remembrance Sunday on:
Sunday 17th November 2018 at 6.30pm
This service will give us the opportunity to remember those who have died.  We will remember them with gratitude, give thanks once more for their lives, all they have meant to their loved ones, as well as pray for all who are coming to terms with bereavement. This Service is for all who have lost loved ones, recently and longer ago. If you would like your loved ones prayed for by name, please write their names on the list as you come into church. The sides’ people will assist you.
We do hope you will be able to come and join us and we look forward to seeing you.
After the service, there will be refreshments and an opportunity to look at the Book of Remembrance.
With our very best wishes

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.
