Happy Easter from all at All Hallows Church


Our Easter Garden is laid out beside the Church porch.

There is space for more flowers, be they crafted, cut or growing.

Everyone is welcome to add a flower to the garden...there's even jam jars

ready with water in for you to pop a bloom in to.

Come and look when you're walking in the churchyard.



It is more important than ever that we continue to reach out to each other, supporting one another through friendship and our shared faith. 

Please make that phone call, please wave as you pass a window on your daily exercise walk - we all need to help to avoid those feelings of isolation that can overwhelm us. 

And we can all join in the lighting of a prayer candle each day at 8pm

Please do not feel alone. If you are in need of any assistance, need any support or just a phone call from a friend - please let us know.

Check the Notice Board page - for a list of our weekly online friendship groups and services.

Details of the Zoom meetings can be obtained by emailing: allhallowsordsall@hotmail.co.uk

What is Real LIFE?

Real LIFE is a discipleship course designed to envision, empower and equip Godís people in making the life-long journey of following-after Christ.  The course is made-up of three ten-week blocks (Life CORE, Life CREDO and Life STORY), which in their own different ways will look at ten aspects of discipleship that emerge from the teaching and example of Jesus in Luke 9.  Life CORE introduces these aspects; Life CREDO considers the bigger theological themes that lie behind them; and Life STORY asks how each aspect of discipleship is developed in everyday experience. 

To hear more about Real LIFE, watch these short videos.

The Bassetlaw Food Bank does not receive any formal funding, they rely completely on grant applications, donations from organisations, churches, the general public and fundraising to be able to provide support to the local people of Worksop, Retford and surrounding villages.

  This time of year is not good for some people in our local community, not only following the expense of Christmas but also with high energy bills during the winter months.  On top of this we have the uncertainty caused by the roll out across the district of the new Universal Credit Full Service.

  The process of applying for this benefit impacts on many people, including not only the unemployed and sick, but working people and their families. We currently have no idea what impact this is going to have on the demand for the Food Bank during the coming year, but early signs are not good and donations will help us to be prepared for any continuing rise that may occur.

  Bassetlaw Food Bank are proud to be supported by a team of over 90 volunteers; without their support they would not be in a position to offer their services five days a week.  Their expansion signifies that there has been a continued demand for their services across the Bassetlaw District, which will not be sustained without support
