Virtual Sponsored Pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela
Fundraising event on Saturday 19th June and 20th June
Santiago de Compostela

Following the success of our sponsored walk last summer, where we aimed to cover the distance to Canterbury (but far exceeded that!), we have decided to push ourselves a little further this year.  We have been challenged to walk the distance to a special place of pilgrimage in NW Spain, Santiago de Compostela, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is at the culmination of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route and is the alleged burial site of the apostle, St. James. The city was destroyed at the end of the 10th Century and was totally rebuilt in the following century.

We would love as many people as possible to take part in this vital fundraising event.  Whether you walk a few laps of your garden, walk up the street and back a few times, walk to the Co-op or the local coffee shop, walk the Croxley Boundary Walk (well worth doing), walking to the pub (yes, they will be open this year), doing your usual 5km run for those runners out there, or going on a bike ride; every bit helps us to reach our target distance of 1089 miles or 1753km.  Walking with a group of friends will be easier this year due to easing of restrictions, so maybe stop for a drink or some lunch on the way?

If you would like to be part of this event, please email the parish office or telephone 01923 772109 and we will sign you up.  Keep a record of the distance covered over the weekend and let us know your total. It would be good to have a daily total if possible, just to see how we are doing after the first day.  For those of you with the necessary technology, we will set up a Whatsapp group again.  This served to motivate, update and log routes and distances as well as give weather conditions and photos to each other. 

We have set up a ‘Go Fund Me’ page https://gofund.me/4b8c4692, so please ask your friends, neighbours and family to sponsor your efforts. We are raising Funds towards the maintenance and running costs of our Church; funds that have been hit hard during the last year.

If your sponsors can donate online, that would be really helpful. It is also possible to gift aid donations, which means we get an extra 20%.

If someone would rather give you a cash donation, please put it in an envelope labelled ‘Pilgrimage Sponsorship’ with your name and hand it in to the parish office or the vicarage.

Let’s make this an even bigger event than last year. Be creative, and most of all, have fun over the weekend.  Watch out for news of how we got on in next month’s magazine, with lots of photos and stories.

We hope you will contribute to our fundraising effort
THANK YOU!

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

Whether you've just moved to the area, have lived here all your life or are just visiting, we hope our website helps you to find out everything you want to know about All Saints’Church, Croxley Green.  We would love to see you!

What facilities are available at the church to enable access for all?
♦ We have temporary ramps available on request for step free access; however, we are looking to
   improve access for those with mobility challenges.
♦ There is a loop system for those using a hearing aid.
♦ Our church hall opposite has toilets; one of which is a disabled toilet with changing facilities for
   babies.
♦ There is street parking available around the church.
♦ Large print copies of the service booklet and hymn books are available.
♦ Our Sunday service is also shown on a large screen.
♦ Some services are available on our facebook page.

What should I wear?
Come as you are, wear whatever you feel comfortable wearing; whether it’s jeans or your Sunday best.

What will happen when you arrive?
You will be welcomed and given everything you need for the service. We always aim to start on time but don’t worry if you arrive late.

What will happen during the service?
Some services are more formal than others (see below), but generally they will include hymns and/or worship songs, prayers, Bible readings and a talk. During a service of Holy Communion you will be invited to go forward for Communion or a personal blessing should you wish.
 
What about children?
Although we do not have a Sunday school, we feel children enhance our intergenerational worship through their openness and engagement with God; therefore they are welcome at all our services. There is also a selection of toys and activities available for them. 

What about money?
The church is completely reliant on donations to cover its running costs and so a collection is taken during our services, where cash or card donations can be made if you wish. 
  
What happens after the service?
There are refreshments available after our Sunday main service. We would love you to join us so we can get to know each other better.

Forest Church lasts for 2 hours.
