The People’s Path – An Exciting Opportunity to Bring Together the Community of Weston Green
The existing footpath that runs down the pond side of All Saints Weston church has been well used by people living in Weston Green and those visiting our parish for over 70 years. It now needs replacing. Over 1000 people visit our grounds each week and we want to offer anyone associated with the church an opportunity to leave their own special mark, in stone, on a new pathway.
Every brick of the new path will be engraved with the name of a person or place that’s been important to someone in our community. But, it will be more than just a list of names: the path will serve as a historical record, a source of inspiration, a memory bank and a place of reflection for anyone working, living or visiting our parish. Ultimately it will weave the people from our village together within the sacred grounds of All Saints Weston and demonstrate that we recognise the stuff that is important in all our lives.

Our well established and enthusiastic Parish Choir is looking for a director to conduct two services and two rehearsals each month, with opportunities for further involvement in the musical life of the Parish.
We are a vibrant and sociable choir of about 15 adults which needs a conductor to lead:
- two Sunday Parish Eucharists at 9.45am (excluding August)
- one mid-week rehearsal twice a month (on a weekday evening to be agreed)
- a few special services, including at Easter and Christmas
Additional, but wholly optional, roles could include conducting our Evensongs (x4 per annum) and developing a children’s section within the Parish Choir.
The group currently comprises singers of a wide age and ability range, including some ex-Cambridge choral scholars.
We invite approaches from anyone, from sixth form student conductors to retired music teachers, to develop the group, to build capability and repertoire, so as to enhance the worship of our community.
Plenty of opportunities will exist for any candidate who is keen to play the organ, but this is not a requirement as we currently have an organist.
Our church has a rich musical life and heritage. The building was designed by Edward Maufe (the architect of Guildford Cathedral) and is a local landmark. It has a luxurious acoustic and is a well-known and much-admired concert venue. Recent performances have been given by Kings College, Cambridge and Merton College, Oxford.
The position will attract a salary in line with RSCM rates, which will depend on the level of commitment that can be offered.
The exact role, and commitment that we are looking for, is open to discussion and negotiation and we are happy to build them both around a suitable candidate’s needs.

THE FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT LISTEN HERE WEEK 1
Phillip’s sermon of November 5th
Questions on this week’s sermon
- Phillip suggests that there are differences between the gifts of the spirit and the fruits of the spirit – look at the different lists in Paul’s letters. Do you think there is a difference?
- What gifts do you think you have? Are there shadow sides to them?
- How can you maximise your gifts being used for good in your life?
Loving Father, help us be aware of the many gifts you have given us, both in ourselves and in our lives. Encourage us to use them to encourage others, to grow in Discipleship and to share the good news of your Kingdom.
THE FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT – WEEK 2
Click here to read the sermon given by Mike Hawkins
Below are some suggested questions for discussion –
- Mike considers the idea that God is trying to make us feel guilty about not forgiving others which is why we should do it. Have you sometimes felt like that?
- A major part of forgiveness is the nurturing of hurt and the amount of energy we use up in not forgiving. Why do you think we do this?
- How can you forgiving someone be part of God’s “campaign against evil”? Does that concept help you release some of the hurt that you feel?
