"BOUNTEOUS GIFTS" - weekend of 23rd & 24th June 2018 
 
The Friends are joining with the PCC in a full weekend celebration to honour all those who have enriched All Saints with their 'bounteous gifts' over six hundred years, starting with the priest at the time the church was completed who gave two bells and some valuable books. 
 
Through the generosity of many people from all walks of life the church has been greatly blessed with contributions great and small that have added to the beauty and usefulness of the church building. 
 
The latest and most exciting contribution is the gift of engraved glass doors by nationally renowned artist Tracey Sheppard. The church will be decorated with flowers in honour of Winifred Williamson in whose memory the doors have been given.  
 
There will be a tea party on the Sunday, when we shall have the pleasure of a string quartet playing to accompany the tea. We look forward to having you with us over the weekend.  
 
Emberton Art Group Exhibition - weekend of 28th & 29th July 2018 
The village Art Group is holding a small event in the church, and the Friends will be providing the catering. Work by Jack Piggott will also be exhibited.
