All Saints Day in Wellington

Youth and Children’s Worker, Caroline Gwilliam prepares for the Wellington Pumpkin Light Treasure Hunt

On All Saints Day, November 1st, All Saints church will be organising a day of events to bring light and hope to Wellington and the surrounding communities.   The Rev’d Tim Carter commented, “Jesus said, ‘I am the light of the world’.  At what can be a dark time of year, and in what has been a dark year, the church family want to share a message of hope and light with the town that we all love.”

All Saints church building will be open from 3pm -9pm for anyone who wants to come and have a moment of peace or private prayer.

A Pumpkin Light Treasure hunt will start at All Saints church building at 4pm.   Families are invited to come and collect a map to follow on a walk around Wellington, finding special pumpkins as they go, returning to All Saints for a prize.

From 5pm we will be joining Lichfield Cathedral in sharing the art installation, “Light of Hope”.   Three beams of light will shine into the night sky, symbolising the Christian belief in the light of Jesus bringing hope in a dark world.   We anticipate that it will be visible from all around Wellington, and are asking those who see it to post photos of it to their social media accounts with the hashtag #LightOfHope   Created by sculptor Peter Walker and supported by Arts Council England, we hope that this art will bring light and hope to all that see it.

All these events will be run in a Covid secure manner.    To express an interest in taking part, or for more details, please contact the vicar, the Rev’d Tim Carter, tim@allsaints-wellington.org or visit the church website:  www.allsaints-wellington.org
