Coronavirus update

To keep us all safe, our Churchwardens are keeping a close eye on Diocesan and Church of England guidance and advice from the Government. We will provide any updates on this page:

Last updated Monday 23 March

Following tonight's announcement by the Prime Minister, and with enormous regret, we have taken the decision to close All Saints for the forseeable future. 

Our church is much more than a building; we are a community. We will continue to be there to support each other and our neighbours in Cheadle Hulme.

We are also exploring different ways to keep sharing worship and prayer together. Keep an eye on this page and our Facebook page for updates.

Update from Thursday 19 March

We are beginning to set up a Coronavirus support network at the church, so if you know anyone who needs shopping; prayers or simply a conversation please call Rev Janet Owens on 0161 312 4683 or our Churchwardens Janet Ashman 0161 485 7969 and John Ackerley 0161 486 1419.

Rev Janet has this morning sent an email to everyone who is on our distribution list. You can read it here. If you would like to be added to the email recipients for All Saints please send an email to (You can, of course, unsubscribe at any time)

Update from Tuesday 17 March

Following the advice of the Church of England this lunchtime, we have cancelled all our public worship and services until further notice. We hope to continue to open our church for prayer, and are exploring ways to keep in contact with our members and our community. Keep an eye on this page for more news over the coming days...

Update from Monday 16 March

As a result of the government announcement today (16 March), all church activities are suspended until further notice. This includes our community and social groups, choir practice and children's and family activities.

The Churches Together in Cheadle Hulme Lent Lunch that we were hosting on Saturday 21 March is also cancelled.

However, our services will continue to go ahead and our church will remain open for private prayer on Tuesdays from 10 am to 2 pm.

Update from Sunday 15 March

We will be taking the following extra precautions at services at All Saints from Sunday 15 March for the foreseeable future.

  • We will take communion in 'one kind' only i.e. communicants will be offered the wafer
  • We will not 'share the peace' with handshakes or hugs
  • Hand sanitiser will be available on entry to the church 

At this uncertain time, we will need to look out for fellow members of the All Saints community and our neighbours. If you have particular concerns for yourself or someone else and need help, you can contact our Churchwardens Janet Ashman (0161 485 7969) or John Ackerley (0161 486 1419).

We pray for those who have been affected by the virus and their families, and also for the healthcare professionals and others who are working to keep us safe.
