The young people at All Hallows are getting together for a Sponsored Sleep-Out at the end of January. About 50 Cubs, Scouts, Guides and young people from the congregation will sleep overnight at the church, learning about homelessness and raising much-needed funds for SPEAR, our local homelessness charity.
Many of the older children will sleep in our unheated stone cloister, having made cardboard shelters for themselves. First, though, there will be a simple supper followed by an outdoor camp fire and a talk by one of SPEAR’s ex-clients who will be able to tell them from first-hand experience what it is like to be homeless.
The Sleep-out is designed to be fun but also to give the young people an idea of what rough sleeping on a cold winter’s night is really like.
If you’d like to sponsor them, there’s a dedicated Sleep-Out fundraising page here:
Your contribution would be most welcome!
The next meeting of The Society of St Lucy (All Hallows’ Women’s Group) will be on Thursday 12th February at 8.00pm at The Sheesh Mahal, 21 London Road, Twickenham. The cost of the indian meal is yet to be announced, and drinks are to be paid for separately.
If you would be interested in coming along and joining the group, please email the office to let us know you would like to book a place: firstname.lastname@example.org

Lent 2015 at All Hallows
Reflections on the Christian Journey of Faith
This Lent, members of the ministry team will help us to explore Christian discipleship.
The leader of each session will start by sharing their own insights and experience of the Christian faith. Together, we will consider the factors that brought us to belief in Christ, and the things that sustain us on our Christian journey.
Each session will have a variety of activities including short presentations, group discussions and time for questions. We will use the Bible, literature, music and art to prompt reflections on what the journey of faith might mean for each of us.
We look forward to exploring our Christian journeys together. Do come along. All are welcome.
The sessions will run twice each week:
– Monday evenings, 8.00-9.00pm (coffee and biscuits from 7.45pm)
– Wednesday mornings, approx. 10.30-11.30am (after the midweek Eucharist)
