Farewell to our Organist, Choirmaster and Director of Music Cameron Luke
Amid the joyous celebrations of Easter Day and the Risen Christ, the day was tinged with sadness as we said a very fond farewell to our Organist, Choirmaster and Director of Music Cameron Luke. Cameron will eventually leave these shores for South Africa, where he will take up posts at Grahamstown Cathedral, and Rhodes University. Cameron is pictured here with the Choir, Clergy and congregation after his last 10.30am Sung Mass.

Candlelit Nine Lessons and Carols Service - December 2016
Raking through some old photographs I seem to have accumulated, I came across one of All Saints' taken, I should imagine, not very long after it was consecrated around the latter quarter of 19th Century. I then found an almost identical view (with a wee bit of cropping) which I took a year or two ago. Compare the difference. (note on the old photograph the gas mantles along each side of the main aisle, no rood screen or Stone pulpit with canopy etc.etc....).

'Bread and Cheese' Lunch - May 2016
Mary Apperly, All Saints' Christian Aid co-ordinator organised a 'Bread and Cheese' Lunch to raise funds for Christian Aid. Ably assisted by a small group of helpers and supported by a good number of members and non-members of the congregation alike, all went to make the event a great success.
This is in fact the central panel of the ceiling, of the kitchen area, under the tower of All Saints'. Because of it's location and indeed height, very few people see this or indeed know about it, but it is beautifully painted.
An Interesting view, of which very few people get to see, or indeed know about.
