Welcome to All Saints Brenchley



Dear Members of the All Saints' Church Family,

Following the Parochial Church Council's consideration and discussion of the Church of England's 'Living in Love and Faith' report, the PCC agreed to publish this statement in response to it. 

 'All Saints church, Brenchley, is an inclusive church welcoming all without exception or question (including race, sex, and sexual orientation) whilst continuing to uphold the orthodox historical understanding, as well as authority, of the clear meaning and teaching of Holy Scripture for all aspects of Christian life and witness.'

Friends of Brenchley Church and Churchyard

The maintenance of our church building and churchyard must both be financed entirely locally; we receive no external grants. If you would like to become a 'Friend', supporting financially this maintenance (NOT the Church's mission and ministry), please contact the Vicar or Churchwardens - who will be very happy to sign you up! Also, if you would like to help in person in the churchyard this too would be most welcomed.



Campbell has recorded a video of the 8am Communion service for anyone who would like to play and listen to on a Sunday morning. Find the video on video page. The following links are to the sermon's by Campbell delivered via the digital services. I suggest you join just before 10am: it is free.


PRIVACY STATEMENT

During the filming of our ‘streamed’ live services, the camera is mainly focussed on those at the front of the church - those leading the worship, the Bible readers and those leading the prayers. 

However, during the course of the service, the person operating the camera may occasionally swing it round to catch a brief glimpse of the congregation. If you do not wish to be ‘caught’ on camera but would still like to participate in the service, you are invited to sit in the North Aisle (pews on the left-hand side as you face the altar). 

This area is also reserved for those who wish to remain masked during the service and use ‘socially distanced’ seating. It is therefore assumed that any readers, including parents of children reading, have given their consent to be filmed. Should this not be the case, then please let the person filming that service know prior to it starting. 

Furthermore, at Communion Services, no one participating in the taking of bread and wine will be filmed.

Dear Friends,

Whilst services of worship have been suspended for the time being, the church building itself will remain open for private prayer. We would only ask that you wash hands or wear gloves and, as far as you are able, refrain from touching stainless steel, plastic or wooden surfaces with your hands or face.
A selection of Prayers may be found here along with other prayers here. Both to comfort you and to give you the opportunity to pray for others and this pandemic. Please pray especially for the ill, the weak, and the lonely; for the medical and caring professions, and for the weakening of the virus.

There is a Library of sermons on this website covering many themes, and we are looking at being able to 'stream' either here or by another vehicle (Youtube, etc) some short talks for you.

In the meanwhile, if you are fit and well (and below 70) and would like to help with shopping, a phone chat, etc, please contact either Ready Call (01892- 722789) or Campbell, the Vicar (01892 - 722140: email rev.campbell.paget@gmail.com)
