YOUTH AND CHILDREN’S WORK
Our young people’s work is of the highest priority here. Contact Mike King (01622 746994 or 07790 178994) for 11 year olds and above (LOGs): and Henrietta Paget for rising 5-11 year olds (CHILDREN’S CHURCH) for full details and arrangements. On all Sundays in term time, except the first, CHILDREN’S CHURCH meets at Brenchley School for their activities in various age groups. You may leave them at 9.50am. They return later to the Church.

LOGS youth group for year 7 upwards meets most Wednesdays in term time from 4.30-6.30 at the school, plus socials, trips etc. They are also often involved in Cafe church on the first Sunday of the month and the family service on the 3rd Sunday. Please contact Mike or Campbell for exact details or have a look at the youth pages on the All Saint's website.

MUSIC
Our aim at All Saints’ is to encourage a breadth and variety of musical traditions in our various services. Singers and instrumentalists of all ages can play a part in this. Please speak with the Vicar for full details.

CHURCH FINANCES
Members of our church are encouraged to take a responsible and realistic approach to our church family’s finances, which is first and foremost a spiritual matter. The church family is not like a club where everyone pays the same ‘subs’; members contribute according to their ability to do so and their desire to thank God and support His work. Planned giving is especially encouraged whenever possible: please speak with the Vicar, Treasurer or Planned Giving Administrator.

EVERY MEMBER MINISTRY
A Church can only operate effectively when every member takes responsibility for their membership, offering their talents and services and seeking to deepen or expand these. We welcome and encourage everyone to play a part in our church life. If there is any area of ministry in our church family in which you are interested, please contact the person responsible above or the Vicar.
