The Church is OPEN for Sunday services
with effect from Sunday 14th March 2021
As COVID restrictions start to be lifted and with the approval of the Directors of Public Health in Lancashire, public worship at All Hallows will resume from Sunday 14th March and the Church will be open for private prayer on Wednesday of each week, from 17th March.
Please note that with the resumption of public worship, the following measures will be in place:
· The Church will be thoroughly cleaned before the service and during the week after the service
· A one-way system will be in place for entering and exiting the Church; entry will be via the West Tower door with the Church open from 9.20am for the 9.30am Sunday service
· Hand washing and sanitising stations will be in place on entry to the church
· Seating will be designated with 2m spacing and people will be asked to seat from the front of the Church
· Holy Communion will be celebrated and the congregation may, if they wish, accept the communion wafer but there will be no distribution of the wine at the present time
· Masks must be worn unless you have a medical exemption. Gloves are not required.
· There will be no singing or refreshments and church doors will be left up during the service to ensure a flow of air so please dress accordingly
Children are welcome but unfortunately the "child-friendly" areas in Church and children's activities will not be available.
At this time it is important that people do NOT congregate in or around the Church before the service commences and maintain social distancing in line with current guidance, at the end of the service.

Revd. Canon Brian McConkey was inducted as the vicar of All Hallows in April 2017.
This also signalled the start of our new Pastoral Benefice with St Wilfrid's Ribchester and St John, the Evangelist, Hurst Green. All Hallows and St John's have been a joint Benefice for a number of years but the joining of the three parishes was an exciting new chapter for us all.
We held a farewell service for Revd. Karen Herschell on Sunday 16th May as she prepared to leave our parishes to take up her first incumbent role for the Mellor, Balderstone and Samlesbury parishes. Karen joined us in July 2018 and it has been a delight and a blessing to have us with us for nearly three years. She will be greatly missed and we are very pleased that she will continue to be a close neighbour to us. Click here to read the prayer for all at All Hallows, which Karen gave to us at the end of the service.
As you see from the photos below, social distancing was observed!
