The Parish of All Saints' Church Blakeney

Church Life

We have a regular congregation every Sunday morning, and new faces are guaranteed a warm welcome. Many of our church members have been born and raised in Blakeney; others have "come in on the tide" of settlers in to the beautiful Forest of Dean.

Service of Holy Communion or Morning Worship takes place every Sunday at 9.30am with a Family Service each third Sunday of the month at 11.00am.

*Details of services and events can always be found displayed on the notice board and in the Fifteen bells benefice / parish magazine.

We have regular concerts, events, sales and monthly Lunches in the church, as well as a flower Club, and social activities throughout the year. The Church is an available space within our village and is generally free to use for events outside worship in consultation with the Vicar and Churchwardens.

Special occasions are celebrated throughout the year. These include Lent, Harvest and Mothering Sunday celebrated with a service of family worship which is a traditional and much-loved feature of All Saints' Church and continues by popular demand; everyone attending receives a posy of spring flowers in gratitude for their mothers, wherever they may be.

Good Friday is acknowledged by a service of reflective prayer in the afternoon, and Easter Sunday sees family Communion in church to celebrate the resurrection of our Saviour in song, prayer, readings and music.

Harvest is celebrated with a service and Harvest Supper, and later in the Autumn, All Saints' Day, All Souls' and Remembrance Sunday are always special occasions in our calendar, as is the season of Christmas when many special services and events are held.
