Ride and Stride
Thousands of cyclists and walkers will be out on the streets and lanes of Suffolk on Saturday 10th September between 9.00am and 5.00pm, when hundreds of churches are open to visit.
A popular event for individuals and families, it is the 35th year the Suffolk Historic Churches Sponsored Bike Ride and Stride has taken place, but it is now a country-wide event. Money raised by walkers and cyclists is divided between the Suffolk Historic Churches Trust and a church chosen by each participant. Everyone taking part chooses their own route including as many, or as few, churches as they wish. Jenny will register you and give you a form for your sponsors to fill in. Jenny is also looking for volunteers to sit in our church to welcome and verify that the cyclists and walkers have visited All Saints’.

Lent
The theme for Lent ‘generous God, generous people’ was explored in the sermons and in the house groups over the weeks leading up to Easter, beginning with an introductory session on Sunday, 31st January. The five week course for Lent was on our calling as stewards of all that God has given us. Bishop David said, when it was published,
Generous God Generous People’ is an "easily accessible Bible-based study material on the subject of Christian Giving ..... to help us here in Suffolk open our hearts and our hands even more fully to God and to each other. My vision is of a world based on giving not getting, and here is a very practical stepping-stone towards that good future.” There were home groups on Sunday evenings, Monday and Tuesday mornings.
