'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.

"We shape our buildings, and then they shape us."
Sir Winston Churchill

All Saints Church Longstanton is the most prominent building in our community. Yet despite its visual prominence, the church building is under-utilised. If our church is to thrive and meet the needs of our growing community, it needs to redefine its space in ways that enable it to function both now and into the future.

For the church family there is belief in the mission of the church to reach out to the local community. For the wider community there is belief in the importance of securing the future of a culturally significant and valuable building and the need to create a community space that will bring a village closer together.

What we want to do!
We are seeking to revitalise the interior of the building thereby forging a much more practical as well as spiritual relationship amongst and between the church community and the wider community.

How can you help?
We have estimated that if each household within Longstanton gave £15.00 towards the funding of the church re-ordering project, we would raise almost £20,000.This would be seen as a significant contribution from the community and would certainly greatly enhance our chances of obtaining further funding from grant funding organisations.

If you feel able to contribute to ensuring that our church here in Longstanton remains a focal point in the village, available to all within the community, then a donation of £15.00 will help us realise that vision.

Can I help in other ways?
Yes, you can. Not only do we need financial support, we also need people to give of their time, helping us to raise further money as well as becoming involved in the many processes that are part of the wider project.

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.

Our 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.

We 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.
