During this difficult time when our church buildings remain closed for services, we are still a church; we open for private prayer on Wednesday afternoons 2-4pm, we stream virtual services on Sundays at 10.45am, we carry out funerals for departed loved ones, offer the parish magazine free online for any who wish to receive it, provide spiritual support via our website and offer practical support where we can, always caring for our communities. With the closure of all our buildings, and some people not being able to give due to the financial impact of the pandemic on them, we cannot receive all the gifts that we usually would, so we really need your help now. If you have enjoyed this Virtual Open Gardens and you are able to give a donation, please visit our online donations page by clicking here: All Saints Donations. Thank you.”
Many of you will know that Winterton Open Gardens was to take place on July 18-19th, 2020. Sadly a decision to cancel the event was made early on in the ‘lockdown’ when it became clear that planning could not take place and there was no guarantee that it could be safely held under social distancing and other guidelines. Each year it has been held it has created significant interest and it has also contributed much badly needed funding to All Saints’ Church in Winterton..
In its place All Saints’ has arrange a Winterton Virtual Open Gardens Weekend on 18-19th July, 2020. There will be an online collection of photos and short videos of gardens in Winterton. Any Winterton resident is encouraged to submit images / videos which can cover a range of ideas. There will be a link to the All Saints online fundraising page so that those who view the site online will have the opportunity to make donations if they wish. Those who submit images/videos will be encouraged to email family and friends to view the site when it is online that weekend.
