ENVELOPES READY FOR COLLECTION

If you make your offering to the Church using the envelope system, then your new envelopes are ready for collection at All Saints Church.  This year most people will have been allocated a “new envelope number”.  This is because we were ordering over 400 boxes of envelopes but only half were being distributed.  If for some reason you can’t find your box of envelopes, marked with your name, then please contact Jo at the Parish Office.
