'Sing for Joy'
Have you ever yearned for a bit of "me" time or have wanted to sing in a group, but never had the opportunity or confidence to do so, then this group is for you! Led by Kate Woolf, they come together just for fun and the love of singing. The Group are back from their summer break and will singing on 13th & 27th September.

Pop-up Coffee Shop.
At our first pop-up coffee shop in the Church we raised £90
for Jimmy's Night Shelter in Cambridge and we wish to thank all who came along and supported us.
On Saturday 9th November, we are going to do it all over again between 10:00am and 12:30pm,
this time raising money for CAMSIGHT, a charity in Cambridge supporting those who are blind or
partially sighted.
Come along for a coffee and support this worthy cause.


Sunday 10th November 2019
at All Saints' Church Longstanton commencing at
10:45am at the
Church War Memorial.

"They shall grow not old,
As we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them,
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
We will remember them."

Remembrance Sunday
10th November 2019

Remembrance Sunday is the day traditionally put aside to remember all those who have given their lives for the peace and freedoms we enjoy today. The service is framed to ensure that no-one is forgotten.

The wreaths laid at the War Memorial in the Churchyard are dedicated to all who have suffered or died in past wars as well as recent and current conflicts.

It offers us the opportunity to take time out to respectful remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our much-cherished freedoms.

As well as remembering past sacrifices, we also reflect on the present and remember those who were killed or injured in recent conflicts such as Iraq and Afghanistan.

Many who because of war and conflict, live with appalling injures, both physical and psychological. It is right that we remember them as they, their families and friends come to terms with such life changing injuries and loss.


16th November
Tearfund Quiz Night
On Saturday 16th November starting at 7:30pm
we are holding a Tear Fund Big Quiz Night in the Church.
Bring your own drinks and nibbles.
£5 donation for Tear Fund.

Mini-Jaffas is for parents with pre-school children. Mini-Jaffas meet in the Village Institute 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.

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.
