P1030328

On Sunday the 3rd November we celebrate again our medieval parish church’s dedication to ‘All the Saints’. It reminds us that our church has stood proud and strong at the heart of our village through storms, wars, village festivals, in both sad and happy times, since 1352. Like all old buildings it needs on-going repair and updating for this new century. It needs the support of local ‘saints’ such as yourselves. Read more

Sponsored Walk from Cambridge

Mac window 3 JPGHASLINGFIELD WALKS IN THE STEPS OF ITS MISSIONARY BISHOP…

 All Saints’ Haslingfield has a fine memorial window to its missionary Bishop, Charles Mackenzie, who prior to his going out to Africa to help combat the slave trade and to help establish the church in what is now Malawi, walked out from Cambridge to Haslingfield on Sundays to help with services in the church.    The full story of his life can be found in the display inside the church, but there is now a link between Haslingfield and Magomero, the place where he established a base in 1861.   The Church in Haslingfield together with other parishes in the Mare Way Group has helped with renovation of the school buildings, and most recently with materials for the construction of a church building, which is nearly complete.
