PHILIP SLANE has been the SINGING TUTOR at All Saints since January 2012.

Alongside this he fashioned a solo concert and opera career, including tenures at Glyndebourne and The Royal Opera, Covent Garden.

We are lucky enough to maintain the only remaining boys’ choir in the county, and there is also a separate girls’ choir. These top lines are supported by a back row of men who sing the alto, tenor, and bass parts. The choirs sing for High Mass on Sunday mornings, at 10:30, and evensongs on Wednesday and Thursday at 6:00. They also carry out a busy programme of concerts and tours, more details of which can be found in the Music Department. For a full list of choral services click here.


There are three specific groups of worshippers at All Saints. There is the Weekday Congregation who attend the daily Eucharist or thrice-weekly Choral Evensong. Then there is the Sunday congregation who attend the 8.00am, 10.30am and 6.30pm services. Finally the Civic Congregation, who attend annual & anniversary services important to the town and county.


The Parochial School was resited in the 1970s, but the links between the parish and the school are maintained by foundation governors, and the Beckett & Sargent foundation.


Conscious of the need for educational grant aiding, the B & S charity, founded in the Parish, gives grants to young people in all fields of education.


The P.C.C is part of the Church of England's synodical government, operating by statute. The Parochial Church Council is elected on an annual basis by those on the Electoral Roll of the Church. The P.C.C consists of David White as Chairman, an ex officio member who is a Church Warden, the Deanery Synod Representatives and twelve elected members.
