ALL SAINTS CHURCH is part of the Clarendon Team which is comprised of the parish churches in:- Alderbury; Farley; Winterslow; Whaddon; West Dean; West Grimstead; East Grimstead; and Pitton.

Lay Licensed Ministers: Debbie McIsaac, Michael Barratt

In addition to local services, there are some combined services within the team (usually on the fifth Sunday of the month).

JOB OPPORTUNITY IN THE CLARENDON CHURCHES:

We are looking to recruit a Team Administrator for the Clarendon Churches to oversee administrative tasks within the churches to support the ministry team. These tasks include co-ordinate bookings of weddings, baptisms and funerals. To liaise with funeral directors, create invoices and process payments associated with such pastoral services. Communication is done through telephone and increasingly through email, with a small degree of post.

An important aspect of this role is good communication with the ministry team, an eye for detail, and the ability to work with volunteers throughout our churches. We have a large equipped office located in Winterslow for the team administrator, and you will mostly be working independently, but under the guidance of the Team Rector. While the Main Duties of the job are based in the office, a degree of flexibility is possible, even some remote working possible. There is also the opportunity to examine all aspects of the role and develop new ways of performing tasks.

This appointment has become available following our current administrator stepping down from the role for personal reasons, however they are able to provide an induction into the role and an overview of all tasks.

Closing Date for applications: 21st August 2021
Short-listing: 24th August
Interviews will be early in September.
Post available immediately, subject to references and enhanced DBS Check.

Completed application forms should be emailed to ta2021@ClarendonCofE.org. For more information, including supporting documents,

SERVICES FROM FEBRUARY 2021

Services at Whiteparish and other Clarendon Team Churches since March 2021

Covid-19 Regulations currently allow Churches to open for public worship. However because of serious concern about new variants of Covid in the winter of 2020/2021, initially just two of the larger Clarendon Team churches (those in Whiteparish and Winterslow) opted to have services. Some of our churches are also open for quiet reflection and for Private Prayer and the Clarendon Team Website has details of opening times and places, including online services. Church Notice Boards will also have up-to-date details. As can be seen on that website, a fairly comprehensive schedule of services has happily now been restored in Whiteparish and other Team churches (with some restrictions).

An update on the same website, dated 27th April 2021, summarised the current situation as follows: "All our churches are open as normal and Sunday worship pattern has resumed. We still need to follow Covid-Safe guidelines so please bring a mask to wear and follow all directions."

CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE IN ALL SAINTS CHURCH

CHILD PROTECTION

We take our children’s safety seriously. All our workers with children and young people are DBS checked. A copy of our child protection policy is pinned up at the back of the Church.

CHILDREN IN CHURCH

Children are very welcome to all services at All Saints' and we hope they will join in and participate in worship with us, although some services are more appropriate for younger children.

You are welcome to bring quiet toys for younger children to play with during worship. There are toy bags provided in a basket near at the back of the church. You will find additional books underneath the hymn book stand. Please don't worry if your children make a little noise.

Once they are older children are encouraged to help with reading and leading prayers, singing in the choir and playing in the music group.

Once a month (usually the third Sunday) we have All Age Worship This is a 'child friendly' service to which children are encouraged to come, but it is specifically designed to enable the whole Church to worship together. There is a children's corner with activities.

COMMUNION AND CONFIRMATION

Children aged 7 upward, who worship with us regularly, may be prepared to receive Holy Communion if parents and children both wish it. Young people are encouraged to prepare for Confirmation. You should contact the Team Rector about either of these.

ALL SAINTS C of E (VA) PRIMARY SCHOOL

Whiteparish is fortunate to have a thriving little primary school, which caters for around 140 children. This draws young families to move into the village to benefit all.

The School has a very active PTA which organises many social functions throughout the year, which are open to everyone in the village. These include plays, quiz evenings, dances, and a huge firework display.

The Church and School combine forces one weekend in the summer to organise a Bands Night with Hog Roast on the Friday, Fete on the Saturday, and Songs of Praise on the Sunday; all on the Memorial Ground. This is a major fundraiser for both, and brings the whole village together.

The school welcomes help and involvement from people in the village and there are opportunities to become Foundation Governors.

For all major services, such as marriages, baptisms and funerals your first point of contact should be either the Revd Jane Dunlop or the Churchwarden, Jane Legat (884600), who will be pleased to help you contact the right person.

However there may be other times when you feel the need of some help you may like to contact one of the Lay Pastoral Assistants who are attached to All Saints' Church, or one of the Clergy.

They are trained volunteers who are licensed by the Diocese to carry out many pastoral needs like visiting the housebound or sick, supporting the bereaved or visiting families with special needs. Home Communion can also be distributed.

The lay Pastoral Assistants in Whiteparish are trusted members of All Saints' Church who believe in the power of prayer, are able to listen and care for others and, most importantly, are able to keep confidences.

Should you need their help, please contact one of them:

Patricia Boyle (01722 710570), Zoe Clewer (884550), Paul Gooderham (884528), Belinda Knapman (884468), Jane Lax (884434), Jane Legat (884600), Shirley Near (884386), Lynn Walworth (01725 513738)
