Activities at All Saints
First Tuesday Open/Cafe Church
On the first Tuesday of each month throughout the year we have First Tuesday Cafe Church, when the Church is unlocked from 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m., making it available for anyone to visit for peace and quiet contemplation.
In the Schoolroom we provide refreshments and lunch. This is open to everyone to come and go as they please, offering friendship and hospitality. It has proved to be very popular and we have visits from family tree researchers, walkers and geocachers, as well as many local folk who know where to find us on that day!
Something All Saints Church is really well known for is its beautiful floral decorations during special times of the year, particularly at the Flower Festival when it is enhanced by craft and artworks by local groups and artists. There is also a very well-stocked plant stall selling all manner of vegetable plants, annuals and perennial shrubs.
The Schoolroom becomes our tearoom serving teas and coffees, delicious cakes and lunches. There is also a sale of home-made cakes and produce, plus a tombola. When the weather is in our favour, tables and chairs are situated outside the Schoolroom.
The Harvest Fair, which usually coincides with the Sponsored Cycle Ride for the Suffolk Historic Churches Trust and is held on the second Saturday in September, precedes the Harvest Festival Evensong service the following day, and usually incorporates a fun dog show. The Schoolroom is open as for the Flower Festival.
Christmas & Christingle
From the Christingle service to the decorations in the church with flowers, nightlights, candles, and the Christmas Tree for the Christmas Services, the church always looks beautiful and inviting.
The parish magazine is published three times a year – Easter, Harvest and Christmas – and is distributed free of charge to all households in Little Cornard. The online edition can be found on this website.
