All Saints Fire 2nd Anniversary

Our day of prayer to mark the 2nd anniversary of All Saints fire is now underway. It would be great to see lots of people here to pray today for the rebuild but if you’re not able to make it you can still join us from home by using the attached prayer booklet.

If you come to the church you will find a number of different prayer stations with prompts for prayer – tactile things like sweets, bubbles and string, and also verses for meditation and space for reflection. The presentation of the plans for the building will be running continually in the hall and there will be refreshments in the coffee bar through until 3.30pm. The presentation of the plans for the building is also available online.

Some of the Crew who responded to the fire  from Fleet Fire Station joined us for a coffee and photo.

2 Years on from the All Saints fire, the crew from Fleet Fire Station join us for a coffee and photo.

All are invited to join in prayer for a short time on this day, the 2nd anniversary of the fire in All Saints Church. Prayer stations will be set up around the outside of the church and in the FPCC and sheets will be available for people to use if staying at home to pray. Please consider signing up to commit to a 15min slot during the day so that we can be sure that we have prayer cover for the whole time.

Congratulations to runners in the Fleet Half Marathon

Congratulations to all the runners in the Fleet Half Marathon. Arise All Saints was proud to be nominated as the local charity for the 35th annual event.

Our particular thanks must go to our team of runners who were raising sponsorship for All Saints Fund, and the team of parishioners manning our stand in Calthorpe Park, rattling collection buckets and manning the refreshment points. The runners’ sponsorship pages are still open or you can make donations to All Saints Fund on our My Donate webpage.






More pictures to come!

Here are (almost) all the runners!

Arise & run the Fleet Half Marathon – 20th March 2016

On the 20th March 2016, the annual Fleet Half Marathon will take place and it is celebrating a very special birthday – 35 years of the event.

The run is the biggest sporting event in Fleet and over the years hundreds of thousands of pounds have been raised for both National and Local charities by the runners taking part. It is organised by Fleet & Crookham AC who are themselves a registered charity, raising funds to help develop running and athletics in the town.

But the organising committee of the 2016 event also wanted to support the Arise All Saints campaign after the tragic fire in the summer of 2015. Race Director Penny Abbott said “… it seemed most appropriate in 2016 to support the efforts of Arise All Saints to restore the church to its former state but also support the development of All Saints as a community building to be used for other things as well as religious worship. Our running event is at the heart of the community and the future varied uses of All Saints will also be at the heart of the community.”

We are, of course, very pleased that Arise All Saints has been chosen in this way, and grateful to Penny and her team for all the support they have already given us. We will have a team of 12 runners who are directly raising money for us through sponsorship – any of them would be delighted to hear from you if you would like to support their individual efforts:

Amy Diver
Bethan Holt
Caroline Leppard
Chris Jones
Clare Burchett
Dave Hart
Linda Tyler
Lindsay Blackburn
Nick Cole
Nick Doran
Philip Terry
Richard Howard
Richard Sanderson
Sarah Williamson
Stuart Williamson

Many other runners in the event have also expressed interest and have been sent information about All Saints.

On race day we will have a stand in Calthorpe Park where people can find out more about our progress and plans for All Saints and, hopefully, make donations too. We will also be helping the organisers by manning a water station in Elvetham Road. This is Palm Sunday, but it is also a unique opportunity to raise our profile at a major community event and we really need volunteers to assist both in Calthorpe Park and Elvetham Road. It will be a fun day whatever the weather, so if you would like to help please contact either Nick Doran ( or Claire Holt ( or the Parish Office.
