Families, children & youth

At All Saints’ and St Mary’s we seek to make Jesus known amongst our parish families. Our various ministries are run by passionate volunteers who have undertaken the appropriate DBS checks and training to be able to keep your children safe.

We have close links with our local primary school, Milford Church of England Primary School (We CARE: Courage; Aspire; Respect; Explore)

We have close links with our local primary school, thanks in no small part to our former Family Worker Sheila Hopkins. Until recently the church has taken regular assemblies, alongside other weekly activities. For the last three years, a week long Prayer Space has been set up in the school, providing pupils with the opportunity to enjoy a dedicated place where they could engage in prayer, reflection and stillness. Phil McNinch, our Youth Minister, has been involved in working with Y5/6 through Christmas, Easter and ‘Moving Up’ workshops and running two after-school clubs. He also visited the school every week to run a lunchtime prayer space and assist in Forest and Beach schools. Members of our congregation are on the governing body and many others actively support various school events and activities. Some meet regularly to pray for the School. We welcome the school into All Saints’ Church each term for various services. The local Pre-School also visits All Saints.

United Charities is a combination of a small number of ancient bequests (some dating back several centuries) administered by local trustees. It aims to use its small reserve of funds for the relief of particular situations of financial need within the Parish and to encourage young people in their efforts to contribute to the life of the community. Any request for information or assistance should be made in the first instance to Mr Christopher Beeton (tel 644609) or to the Vicar.
