Has God called you to come and lead our amazing church in Dedworth?
We are currently in an Interegnum which means we are in-between Vicars. We will be moving forward with producing and circulating our parish profile soon so watch this space. If you do want to get in touch with the church wardens, or the PCC, you could use our contact page to send a message. We’d love to hear from you 🙂
I’ve been at All Saints for 36 years and do the admin side of the church warden role, sort out rotas, help with GAP (God and Play) and some services and see my role principally as supporting and encouraging others . Retired now I’m also learning Spanish and playing Bridge and Golf – all badly!
Sue steps up from the music team to become our new Church Warden this year. She has been around for 20 years and will continue in music and leading prayer and Bible study, but she is happy to join Andrew in serving the people of our parish.
Parish Safeguarding Officer, PCC Member
Safeguarding is all about caring for each other and keeping each other safe. I enjoy spending time with people of all ages and backgrounds and am passionate about human rights, equality and inclusion. I see safeguarding as essential to the mindset of Christianity and our faith in Jesus and will do my best to promote our church as a place of safety, where all can feel accepted and secure and become confident to find God and be themselves. Much of my time is currently spent caring for our pre-school grandchildren, with the help of my husband, John. Between us we juggle our childcare commitment with other activities that we enjoy. We run All Saints’ Film Night once a month and are both part of the Pastoral Team.
Head of schools team
Working with children and young people is where I am most happy, but helping to spread God’s love in the community wherever and whenever I can makes my day. My love for my garden is a developing passion, along with learning more about and caring for our beautiful world.
Deanery Synod Representative, Treasurer, Head of Building and Grounds
I have been a member of All Saints for almost 40 years. During that time I have served on the PCC for around 25 years and was a Church Warden for 6 years. Today I wear many hats. As Treasurer I look after the Church Finances focusing on controlling our costs and increasing our income. My mantra is that the Lord’s kingdom is not served by money sat in Church bank accounts. I also oversee work on the church building and surrounding grounds. Winemaking is a hobby – we turn the grapes from the church vine into our communion wine. A group of us also have a vineyard of 100 vines in Clewer Fuel Allotments. Golf is another passion of mine as are Walking and Travel.
Worship leader, schools work, childrens & youth ministry, preacher
Carolyn pops up in lots of different places! She grew up in the church with her brothers, then lived in the West Country for nearly 20 years since university, and is now back in Windsor. She’s involved in Schools Assembly work in the local area, helps out with leading worship (playing guitar and singing) and with the church youth group – as well as leading all-age family services at the Church and sometimes also worship services in prisons!
In her spare time she is a professional freelance artist and designer!
She loves living this life’s adventure with Jesus, worshipping God, praying for (and with) people, encouraging and serving others in the community in whatever way she can…however The Holy Spirit leads!
Children & youth leader
I lead the children and young people at All Saints. This includes Sunday School, GAP (toddler group), Youth Group and Holiday clubs. I love working with our youngsters – they make me laugh all the time and it’s great showing them how much God loves them and has an amazing plan for them. I am also a mum of twins and a Paediatric nurse.
Worship Leader, Web Admin, AV tech
You will find me up the front most Sundays singing and playing bass. I love being able to share the gift of music within our worship times. I get involved with anything technical and administer the church website. When I’m not at church you will find me doing DIY, playing with my children or enjoying cooking/eating great food.
Worship team member
I’ve been a member part of All Saints since 2005 and have never known a church which feels more like a family. I enjoy playing the keyboard in worship and being part of a caring community that seeks to understand God’s purpose for our lives. When not at church I enjoy time with my young family and like keeping active and being outdoors. I also help run the pre-school in Old Windsor as a trustee.
Licenced Lay Minister
I have been an LLM since 1995. Since retiring in 2016 I have worked as spokesman for the Christian Charity Tearfund and am now Chairman of the Trustees of a charity, partly funded by Tearfund, called Pregnancy Twinning. Currently my key activity and role is Chaplain and deputy Chairman for Coworth Flexlands school in Sunningdale. I spend most of my time in my garden where I grow fruit and veg as well as flowers and shrubs, and occasionally you will find me on the golf course.
Licenced Lay Minister
I have been an LLM since 1991. I am also a trained Spiritual Director, mentoring people in leadership positions in other churches. It is a privilege to preach and lead services but when not preparing to do so I’m on the golf course, swimming or gardening. I also love music and reading and am writing a book which I hope will help people find God in everyday life.
A note about Licenced Lay Ministers (LLMs) : LLMs are trained and licensed by the Church to preach, teach, lead worship and assist in pastoral care. They take funerals, and undertake evangelistic as well as liturgical work. They officiate at “Communion by Extension”, conduct wedding dedications (after a civil marriage has been conducted) and in an emergency conduct a Baptism with the permission of the Bishop.
I am part of the dynamic team who bring God’s message to the community of Dedworth during Sunday services. I think that being loved and valued is the greatest gift God has given me, as such I enjoy spending time with people, hearing their stories and trying to show them God’s love. I enjoy time spent around a BBQ with friends and family.
Joint leaders of the Pastoral team
We have been members of All Saints for over 40 years and during that time we both have held many leading roles in the life of the Church – too numerous to mention individually. Our present responsibility is the Pastoral Care of the congregation supporting those in any need, illness, loss and anxiety by visits to hospitals, care homes, own homes as well as making phone calls and errands. We are supported by an amazing Team.
In addition we both head up “Prayer at Noon” every Monday in the Chapel – successive weeks we pray for the local Schools, our Community, the World, and the Church – here and in the World. All are very welcome.
Colin is a volunteer Steward at St George’s Chapel and undertakes Chapel tours for schools. Also works with family activities at Windsor Castle. Retirement is a myth!
Barbara enjoys gardening, art and walking in her spare time.
We both enjoy having quality and precious time with family and grandchildren.
Baptism & Wedding Coordinator
I’m part of the All Saints Church team and I’m responsible for keeping the registers upto date (for weddings, banns, baptism and confirmations) liasing with the church wardens and the PCC.
I was born and grew up in Windsor although I now live in Englefield Green. I have worshipped in this church for over 25yrs and enjoy the fellowship of my church family.
Love to see you in church or our cafe any time soon!
Night Shelter Co-ordinator
Community Lunch Co-ordinator
The community lunch is a wonderful resource for our church members and other people in the community. Everyone is welcome whenever they can come. We don’t have booking in or paying in advance, It’s a case of if you feel like some company, a hot meal and as a bonus a service of Holy Communion to begin we are the go to place. I have been involved with the lunch for fifteen years and enjoy it as much now as when I started. We are fortunate to have a really great team and so we look forward to a busy future.
PCC Member, Sunday School Helper & AV Operator
I have been a part of this Church family for over 10 years, and have just stepped aside as Church Warden, to explore my calling into the Sunday School team. I’m finding new challenges and experiences to enjoy as part of this wonderfully loving & vibrant Church! I am embracing my inner child, and love sharing that sense of fun and wonder with the younger ones, as we explore scripture together. I think I am learning as much from them, as they are from me!
I’m also a keen runner (though my enjoyment of it eclipses my ability) and enjoy playing Golf, along with some friends within the Church. I am not that gifted, but enjoy the fellowship and fun.
I come from a family with an Army background, and really enjoy meeting new people, especially those with forces connections.
Come and join us for any service and see what makes All Saints’ so different from other Churches!
PCC Member, Head of Technology
PCC Member, Media team
I’ve been a Christian for 11 years, previously spent 3 years on a PCC in a church in Peterborough and was part of the deanery synod for Peterborough cathedral.
As a new member to the PCC here at All Saints, I’m really looking forward to serving the church and God.
Was a volunteer with the churches night shelter covering night shifts over the winter months and made some great relationships with the guys.
In a past life I was a police officer with Cambridgeshire constabulary and worked in security roles with the MoD and with Microsoft.
All Saints has been my mum and Grans church for ages. I’ve been in and out for various events over the years but really only started coming regularly since my daughter was Penny was born.
I certainly haven’t been a Christian all my life though I went to church a bit when I was a kid with my mum. I feel very lucky that God came back into my life in 2012 during some really tough times however I only realised it was Jesus and that I was a Christian in recent years. All Saints and it’s special people have been a huge part of that journey and encouraging me in my faith and walk with Jesus.
You can find find me welcoming on Sundays at the family service, in and out of the church cafe, volunteering for whatever fantastic community outreach project this church is offering our community. I’m also now a PCC member.
For me personally I feel moved to share the good news of Jesus with others, particularly those in crisis.
Having moved to Windsor in 2000 with my wife and young family, we didn’t have to look far for a welcoming church! I’ve now been a member of All Saints for the past 19 years and after previously being active as a Youth Leader and at the numerous social and fundraising events I decided it was time to join the PCC. I am extremely keen on the church and it’s representation within the community and how we can bring Gods message of love not just to Dedworth but to the world!
All Saints has been a main-stay in mine and my families life. It’s not just a church building, it’s a community, a life line – an extended family! Yeah there are some odds and sods in there (mostly on the PCC!), but a more social and caring church you will find hard to find!
In my spare time I like to beat all the rubbish golfers at All Saints! And trust me, if I can beat them, they’re definitely rubbish!!
So if you are already a member, stop me and say hello, and if you’ve never been to All Saints then what are you waiting for!!!
84 years ago I was welcomed into my family which knew God’s love and how to respect each other.
This ethos was reinforced when I became a keen member of Scouting “do a good turn every day” and as an adolescent I became a leader. I did think at one stage God was calling me into ministry but I soon realised He had other plans for me and I took up training to be a professional youth and community leader. Career progression took me to social work training focussing on children and families and later to senior management in social services.
When my wife Jo and I first joined All Saints 17 years ago we immediately felt welcomed and comfortable within the church family and felt we wanted to be active in our faith. I became involved in leading the pastoral care team and organised the rota for meet and greet, reading, intercessions and collection. Being a rotarian with its aim of “service above self” also plays an important part in my life as does being chairman of the trustees of “Slough Community Transport and Shopmobility”. With God’s blessing I hope to continue to play my part.
