The annual Church Fete was held this year on Saturday 16th of September and was a great success in spite of the showers and at times, stormy weather. The heavens really did open during the afternoon; gazebos flapped furiously in the wind and the jousting platform became even more perilous with the added challenge of the rain-soaked beam and sodden dueling batons (actually sacks filled with something squidgy).

Sponsored walk, 23 September
2017 will be the 9th year in succession when a sponsored walk has been held from the Chapel of Gonville & Caius College in Cambridge to Haslingfield Church to commemorate the walks undertaken by Bishop Charles Mackenzie on Sundays to help with services in Haslingfield. He later went as a missionary bishop to what is now Malawi and his memorial window may be seen at the east end of the south aisle in the church. Read more

You will be pleased to know that the Nave Roof has finally been completed. After a much delayed start, with problems of all descriptions, we now have a beautiful new Cumbrian slate roof. The slates vary in length up the slope and also in width. As the tiler said, ‘It is like playing chess to lay a roof like this’. But to see the completed roof is to see a work of art, which is a real joy, and of which we can all be very proud. It also means of course that All Saints’ remains open as a place of worship and peace for the whole of the village community for years to come, and we can remain dry while using it!
Saturday 25th March, Haslingfield Choir & Orchestra, Bach’s St John Passion.
Saturday 8 April, Richard Gowers, Senior Organ Scholar, King’s College.
Saturday 13 May, SongCycle, the all cycling/all singing male voice quartet.
When the floodlighting of All Saints’ Church was installed in 2003 a sponsorship scheme was set up to ensure that funds would always be available for maintenance and the cost of electricity. The scheme offers a rather nice way of marking special occasions and remembering loved ones, with a ‘certificate’ carrying appropriate wording posted on a notice board in the church porch. By the end of 2016 the scheme will have raised more than £4600 from over 300 donations, but the number of sponsors has reduced over the years and we now need to introduce the idea to more people.
