You have reached the website of All Saints' Church, Hacheston.
We aim to be a welcoming place, growing in God and serving our local community. Outside things are constantly changing, but inside our wonderful C12 church building, the strength of our commitment remains as firm as ever. Please explore the website which explains a little about the church community and our glorious building. Better still come and meet us. We are part of a group of churches and the prayer below is one we are using as we seek to grow together as Christian communities and outwards in our service to God and to our villages.
From September 6th our service pattern will change. We will continue making small steps (as encouraged by Bishop Martin). Therefore, until the end of September we will have a 9.30am Zoom service and a service of Holy Communion at 11am. To get the link to the Zoom service please e-mail Bill Clarke . The service sheets (pdf format) for the Zoom Sunday service can be found here. With issues around social distancing we are limited on numbers that are able to attend services held in our churches. Kettleburgh in particular can only fit in a very small number. There will be another review meeting in mid-September to finalise arrangements for October.
Some people are reluctant to come out to larger gatherings and feel more comfortable in a smaller mid-week service. Therefore we will commence fortnightly services of Holy Communion (BCP) at 10am at Hacheston.
The service schedule for September will be found on the Services page.
If you need to speak to someone about weddings, christenings or funerals, please use the link to the Contact Us page and contact the Revd Canon Graham Hedger or one of the churchwardens.
Orebec Benefice Prayer
Open our hearts to your love, Father God, as we journey with you;
Renew us each day, as we dwell in your presence.
Encourage us when we feel downtrodden,
Bring us comfort when we are sad.
Enliven us so that we may always be ready to serve You, and
Care for others in the strength of God’s love.
Kindle, we pray, all that works towards the coming of your kingdom.
The Rev'd Canon Graham Hedger
Priest in Charge of the Orebeck Benefice
