What We Do


Giving

We really value the financial support people give, to help us make our contribution to the Church’s work in Chelmsford Diocese and here in Springfield. If you would like to donate please use BACS to make a payment to 'SPRINGFIELD ALL SAINTS PCC', Sort Code 20-19-95, Account No 00863572, with the reference 'Donation'. If you are unable to use BACS please contact our Treasurer Ian Poston by emailing treasurer@allsaintsspringfield.org.uk.

To increase their impact, we ask people to Gift Aid their donations if they are taxpayers, and where possible to make a commitment to give regularly. If you would like to consider supporting us in this way, please look at our Planned Giving Leaflet which provides further information. All giving information and enquiries are dealt with in strict confidence by our Planned Giving & Gift Aid Co-ordinators Tim and Angela Pearce, 01245 465577, plannedgiving@allsaintsspringfield.org.uk who will provide an application form for the Parish Giving Scheme on request.

Are you doing some of your shopping online? You could raise money for All Saints' when you do, and it won't cost you a penny! Go to www.easyfundraising.org.uk, choose 'All Saints Springfield PCC' as your favourite good cause, and then go to the retailer's website to make your purchases in the usual way with exactly the same prices. Every time you buy online through easyfundraising the retailer will make a donation to All Saints', and there are hundreds of retailers signed up including most of the leading food supermarkets, High Street shops, and online retailers.

Praying

Praying for and listening to one another is a very practical expression of community, and people often carry burdens alone which they could easily share with others. May we encourage you to ask for prayer if this is the case? The Prayer Ministry Team will be very pleased to support you. We are here to pray with you at 10.30 am Holy Communion services on Sundays (come to see us via the vestry door or the north door, there will be someone to meet you), but we would also like to stress that we can be asked for prayer at any time at any service, or afterwards at coffee time. We maintain complete confidentiality, and use the ‘Quiet Room’ to meet with people. We can also be contacted at any time by telephone if you have any prayer needs, or would just like a listening ear: please call Marion Hodges, 01245 261388. There is also a Prayer Board by the north door in the Church for prayer requests, for yourself or others (this can be anonymous if you wish) – the team will pray regularly for the requests posted.

At 7.30 pm on the first Wednesday of each month, we lead a Prayer Meeting in the Church Centre to pray for our community, the world and the Church, and at various times we have led meditations, including the special times of Advent and Lent. You are very welcome to join us on these Wednesdays to share in our church's prayer life.

Our church magazine 'in touch' features a ‘Prayer Corner’ every month – you can download the magazine from our Home and Magazine pages. You may also like to look at our special Prayer page.

Sometimes we like to say the Lord's Prayer with Actions during Church services - please click HERE if you would like to see and learn the actions.

Caring

If you, or one of your family or friends, are unwell or unable to get out easily, or would appreciate someone to talk to for any other reason, please let us know and we can arrange a home visit. We can also take Holy Communion to people at home if they would like. If you think this could be helpful, please contact Revd Susan Iskander, 01245 356720, rector@allsaintsspringfield.org.uk.

Working Together

We want as many people as possible to know the difference Jesus can make to their lives, and to be loved and cared for in the way Jesus showed us. We know we can do much more by working together with partners in the Church and the community, and with local and national charities.
