The ‘Sing for Joy' Group has taken its well earnt break from singing,
and will be back in fine voice on
Friday 20th October 2017.
If you love singing and would like to join the group,
just turn up
and you will be made very welcome

Friday 20th October 2017

If you have ever longed for a bit of "me" time or have ever wanted to sing in a group but never had the confidence, then this group is for you! Led by Kate Woolf, we will come together just for fun and the love of singing. No auditions, no need to read music ­ just enthusiasm and a willingness to sing with others.
There'll be a chance for a cup of tea and a chat at the end too, so do come along and give it a try ­ singing has such a hugely positive impact on mood, body and soul!
For more details, contact
Kate Woolf (01954-200975) or Susan Meah (01954-781258).


Five Folds Benefice Social Event
Over Community Centre
20th October 2017

Five Folds Benefice Social Event
A chance to meet, greet, eat and socialise with the other congregations of the 5 Folds Benefice.
We will also be hoping to burn a few calories as John Mullett will call for some ceilidh and other social dances. Please bring some finger food for supper, savoury or sweet, to share at half-time.
This is an open invitation to all the members of the five churches and their family or friends.
There will be a bar for purchasing of refreshments, so there is no excuse for those who are not able to dance!
John would also like to invite you to help us make our own entertainment, by bringing along a "turn". Perhaps a speech, song, or sketch. Just bring a party piece - just for fun.
Please come along and bring your family and friends.
There is no charge for the evening. It is a Benefice function which is not intended to raise money but for everyone to have fun and meet each other.


Next Meet on
3rd, 10, & 17th October
Mini-Jaffas is for parents with pre-school children. Mini-Jaffas meet in All Saints' Church Longstanton at 10.30am, for a short informal time of worship followed by craft activities, related to the theme and refreshments. This is an excellent way of introducing young children to worship, as well as being a good way of meeting other parents within the local community. Those who have had their children baptised will find this a great way of keeping their baptismal promises. Just turn up and you will be guaranteed a warm welcome at either venue.


The All Saints Cake Club is now open. Please note that it has a new location which is in the Dale Community Centre.
All Saints' Cake Club

Exciting news from All Saints' Church as it opens its "tea room" each Monday afternoon from 2- ­ 4pm at the Dale Community Centre.
Do come along for a nice cuppa and delicious homemade cakes. Take time out to meet friends old and new.

There is plenty of space for young children to play safely whilst you enjoy your tea and we will be open every Monday during term time so take a break and come and join us.

If you would like to volunteer to help serve teas and or bake a cake please speak to events Team Leader, Sue Gamon, phone 01954-782371 or email

All Saints' Church Longstanton
The Friends Events Team

Do you like a party? Do you want to further the work of the church in Longstanton? Then come and join the Events Team and help to plan and organize a calendar of social and fundraising events for All Saints'. Any money raised will go to the re­ordering project but it is not all about money.

This is a chance to get to know each other better and bring in those who, at the moment, are outside our church family. There are already lots of ideas floating around including a weekly tea party or coffee morning in the church and a Charity Fashion Show scheduled for October/November.

If you are interested, please call Sue Gamon on 01954 782371 or email for more information.

What is
What is "OPEN THE BOOK"?
OPEN THE BOOK is a project which offers primary school children an opportunity to hear the major stories of the Bible, presented chronologically, during the school year.All the stories for the first year are taken from "The Lion Storyteller" written by Bob Hartman.

There are a further two years of themed material for schools who wish to continue after the first year.OPEN THE BOOK fulfils both OFSTED and Church Schools inspection requirements for Collective Worship, and has been successfully used in a multi-faith context.We are delighted to have been invited to take the project into Hatton Park School and we hope that the team delivering the programme as well as the children really enjoy the presentations.

The first term has gone really well and the children are responding very positively.Do keep praying for the project, and for the whole school as it goes through a time of change in the coming year.

Mustard Seed

This is a coffee shop with a difference! It is not a church event, and is open to everyone. Families with young children are also welcome, and we will make toys available. Come and have a chat over coffee/tea (served in individual pots) and home­made cake. Hot chocolate may also be available.
Depending on the week, we also sell:

7 locally grown produce (as available)
7 home­made crafts (usually the 1st Thursday of the month)
7 2nd hand books (for donations)

Volunteer help is always welcome ­ just come along and offer your services. Do let us know if you have any ideas on how we might broaden the appeal. We aim to create a "community hub" where friendship and community can be deepened.
For people selling their own produce and crafts we would ask for a minimum 10% commission.
Volunteer help always welcome - telephone 230329.
