St George's Day  
25th April 2015


St Georges Day
All Saints Church Fund Raising Event
Saturday 25th April 2015.

It has become a tradition of ours to organise and sponsor a St Georges Day fund raising event in aid of the continued conservation and preservation of All Saints Church here in Longstanton.In the past we have had fantastic support on the day in setting up for the event as well as running the various stalls. However it's support at the early preparatory stage [January - March] that we have often struggled with.

This year, St Georges Day is on Thursday 23 April 2015 and it is our intention to hold our fund raising event on Saturday 25 April 2015 [2 -5pm] on the sports and recreation ground.We believe that this year will be the 10th year that we have been organising this fund raising event and therefore want to make it a bit special, which is where you come in.

The aim of this notice is to ask if you would be prepared to be part of the team that is involved in the initial planning and preparation of the event.

Regardless of your abundance or lack of talents, skills, knowledge or experience in these things, we would love to have you on board to help us make this 10th year of fund raising a special event for the Church.

"Teamwork divides the task and multiplies the success" and we are looking for a team of volunteers that will make this year's event the biggest, the best and most successful ever.
It is our intention to have our first planning meeting during the first week commencing February 2015 [date and venue to be confirmed] and it would be just great if you were able to come along to that meeting offering your support.

For further information, have a chat at any time with John Frost or e-mail him at johnfrost01@btinternet.com or Louise Gamon louise.gamon@gmail.com

All Saints' Church Longstanton Website - March 2015 Update

Welcome to March; where did February go?You will see that we have updated our website showing all of our services and key activities for March 2015

The coming year will be a significant milestone for All Saints Church, as we seek to bring about some profound changes to the internal layout of the church building. To cope with the increasing social demands being placed upon the church and our local community, we are intending to install toilet and kitchen facilities within the Church as well as separate meeting areas that can be used for a whole range of community activities.

Our Vision for the future and especially 2015 is about All Saints' Church Longstanton becoming a focal point to the village; for it to be open and accessible to the whole community not only for worship but also as a place to meet, to provide and seek support, to entertain and to enrich the whole community.

More information about our ‘vision' for the future can be found on our website.

The Friends

'Friends of All Saints' Church, Longstanton'. You will see that we are mindful of our rich history and the inheritance that we now enjoy passed on to us by the faith of countless persons who have worshipped here in Longstanton through the ages. 

In September 2007, our Church re-opened having been closed for four years due to parts of the plaster from the ceiling. Information about this event, what we do, our services and how to get to All Saints' Church are included in our website and a very warm welcome awaits you when you visit us.
 

If you cannot visit us, please take time to have a tour of our Church via our website. We would be delighted to receive a message from you, particularly if there is more information that you would like to see on our website.

The Friends of All Saints Church Longstanton are pleased to welcome you to the new web site. 


The
Friends of All Saint's Church Longstanton is a registered Charity  [Registered Number 1115069]set up to oversee the maintenance, repairs, restoration, preservation, reconstruction and beautification of All Saint's Church Longstanton through fund raising and contributions to the Church.

Full details of the
Friends of All Saints Church Longstanton’, the status of the Charity and how you can contribute to the key objectives of the Charity can be found on the 'Friends' page link.

'All Saints’ Church is a very ancient building and an important memorial site for the thousands of RAF Bomber Command Aircrew who perished during World War II.  No 7 RAF Squadron Association, currently still operational, is the last of the RAF Pathfinder Squadrons to be linked to our Church and an annual service is held at the Church to commemorate those within the Squadron who gave their lives in the service of their country.

This website allows us to reach people we may never have been able to contact before. We are always striving to find new ways to get our message out to past, current and prospective new members of our Church and village community. 
 

Ou
r website will also be a source of useful information to those that have long left us, but still wish to keep in touch with what is going on, not only within the Church but also the wider community.

W
e hope you use this website to access the information you need about our Church and as a resource for broadening your faith.  We have provided links to other websites that may be of interest to you and we look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you might have.
