COVID RESTRICTIONS – FACE COVERINGS
In England, face coverings are required by law to be worn in indoor public places which includes places of worship. If medically exempt from wearing a face mask this should be based on the advice of your doctor rather than your opinion - please wear an exemption lanyard/badge. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own
Please continue to sanitise your hands on entry and exit, maintain 1m + distancing when entering, leaving the Church, when seated and when going up for Holy Communion. DO NOT ON ANY ACCOUNT come to the Church if you have any COVID symptoms.Flu is now also posing a threat – please get vaccinated for this and for Covid if you have not already done so.

We are encouraging parishioners to pay their collection by direct debit or through online banking. All Souls has lost the revenue raised through the weekly collection and wall boxes due to the previous closure of the Church and now that Masses have been resumed with limited numbers this is continuing to have a significant effect on the Parish finances. Please do consider paying your weekly collection by direct debit if you do not already do so. If you bank online, you can round up whatever you pay weekly into a monthly figure or make one off payments. Bank details as below:
HSBC, Account Name: St.Peter & All Souls R C Church, Account no. 51333151, sort-code: 40-36-34
you can download a standing order mandate (below) to fill in and post
to the parish office. Also, if you pay tax please consider gift aiding
your collection, this will not be at any extra cost to you.

There is so much wrong in our world today; climate change, poverty, slavery, toxic pollution and resulting ill health. It can be bewildering knowing where to start or how to help.
The Journey to 2030 aims to help our church communities join the global 2030 agenda for change. This website is a place to allow the Church’s contributions, based on Catholic Social Teaching, to add something special to the debate on climate and social action.
The Journey to 2030 calls for a renewed vision for the world, one that chooses to respect life in all its forms.
The Journey to 2030 is both a movement and a web platform. It aims to address these huge problems through community action. The website is a place to share our communities actions, stories and prayers along the journey. By sharing our ideas and stories, we can find motivation and inspiration to act in our own communities.
It is last but not least a place to challenge us! In our thoughts, words and actions.
REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE. THE CHALLENGE MAKING OUR ACTIONS EFFECTIVE
- Through prioritising our actions, putting the most effective changes first, we can ensure that even the smallest of actions we take in our personal lives will indeed make a great deal of difference. For example, not flying or giving up eating meat will have enormously greater impact than occasionally buying biodegradable dental floss.
Just as everyone has unique gifts, skills and resources, so will everyone’s actions be different. For instance not everyone can afford to buy organic food, or has the health to cycle to work. Instead, it is only important to find the most effective things that YOU can do, and to do all that is within your means.
If faced with a decision and you don’t know what the most ecological thing to do is, follow the tried and tested rule: REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE. The words of this slogan appear in this order for a very good reason. They allow us to prioritise prevention of a deepening ecological crisis over the endless battle against it’s symptoms. We are facing a global problem. The simple solution to this crisis comes in the form of the apparently insignificant daily changes and action of millions of people. Set yourself some targets from each of the following categories in the document, to reduce your impact on the planet. Please download the PDF, read through and discuss with your family and friends. https://journeyto2030.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/...
