Celebrating 120 years

Date: 25 February 2022

All Saints’ Church Grayswood, celebrated its 120th anniversary of consecration recently. 

The church marked the day with a special service and ‘fizz and cake’ in the village hall afterwards. 

The whole community was invited to the service and over 50 people joined the congregation with another dozen online.? 

“It was not only regular church goers,” said the Revd Fi Gwynn, Associate Priest at All Saints’, “But visitors and members of the village who don’t usually attend regular worship. It was wonderful.” 

Under the title “Embedding Christ in the Community”, the?PCC has asked congregation members and others to make offers of help; gardening, shopping for others, transport to appointments, etc. These will be promoted to the whole village through the church’s community newsletter. 

“The village has come closer together through Covid,” says Fi. "and this is just one way that we can support the community."

The church has also?planted a beautiful white cherry tree in the churchyard as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative. 

The tree is described as a ‘splendid ancient variety of flowering Cherry tree’. After becoming extinct in its native Japan, a single variety was found in a garden in Sussex ensuring this marvellous ornamental tree to survive. The All Saints’ cherry tree should be covered in white blossom in April.
