All Saints' Ryde,
A Welcoming Community
Growing in Christ.

The Tower and Spire are illuminated in June to honour and celebrate the Seventieth Anniversary of the reign of Her Majesty the Queen, and the faithful ministry of our clergy over many years, and to remember those who are to be ordained at Petertide later this month.

Final Service with Rev’d Julia Myles

On Sunday the 26th June 2022 we have our final service conducted by the Revd Julia Myles before she leaves the Isle of Wight for pastures anew.

Julia has been Chaplain of Mountbatten Hospice, where she has been held in the highest regard and we will certainly miss seeing her at All Saints’.

For Peace and Safety Amid Unrest

O God, who would fold both heaven and earth in a single peace:
let the design of thy great love
lighten upon the waste of our wraths and sorrows:
and give peace to thy Church,
peace among nations,
peace in our dwellings,
and peace in our hearts:
through thy Son our Saviour Jesus Christ.

Government Guidelines

The Plan B Covid restrictions imposed as a result of the spread of the omicron variant were removed on January 27.

Social Distancing: We are blessed with a large, airy building at All Saints’ Church and social distancing can be easily managed. There is plenty of space that you may sit away from others if desired.

Wearing of Face Coverings: Face coverings are no longer mandatory in any setting but may be recommended in enclosed or crowded places, particularly where you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet.

Sanitising Hands: Sanitising of hands remains general good practise and sanitising sites are available.

Covid Passes: The legal limits on the numbers of people allowed to meet indoors and outdoors have been removed, including all capacity limits in churches and other venues. The NHS COVID pass is no longer mandatory for any event.

It remains a difficult time for everybody and we are doing our best to ensure that as many people as possible can continue to attend church and feel safe.

Communion is currently offered in one kind but with an option to take the Chalice if you choose.

Online services continue to be available from Newport Minster and Portsmouth Cathedral.
