Camino to COP
A group of people from all faiths and none are making a pilgrimage from London to Glasgow for the climate conference COP26. They will stop in Harpenden, some spending the night at All Saint’s, and will be holding an event while here to share what has inspired them to act at 7.30pm Wed 8 Sept, St Nicholas’ Church Hall. The group is part of Extinction Rebellion’s Faith Bridge. For any who may be may have concerns, be assured that the Camino to COP contains no element of XR’s non-violent, disruptive civil disobedience activity. Find out more and sign up to the event here:
The waiting is nearly over… The preparations are almost complete… The weather is warming up…
It’s time for our annual Parish BBQ.

Thank you to those who have indicated they are coming, but don’t worry if you haven’t – just come along.

Do feel free to bring your own deck-chair or picnic rug,

Organ Recital at St Helen’s Church in aid of church music
4pm Sunday 5th September

We have the very great pleasure to welcome Thomas Dilley to St Helen’s to give us a recital on the organ. Tom is finalising the repertoire but is going to focus mainly on the Baroque style that suits our organ so well.

Thomas was the senior organ scholar at The Queen’s College, Oxford and is off to further his studies in Toulouse next term.

The recital will be free entry with a retiring collection.

Join us tomorrow at 10am in St Helen’s for our Parish Communion.  Here are the details of the next few small steps we are taking as we move forwards towards the ‘new normal’ 

  • All pews are now open for people to sit where and with whom they wish. 
  • It is no longer a requirement to scan the QR Test & Trace code or fill in a Test & Trace slip.
  • We continue to request that face coverings be worn in church.
  • We still encourage use of the hand-sanitisers
