Poppies at St Barnabas & All Saints
There will be a limited number of poppies in church on Sunday 25th October and 1st November.
These will be laid out on a table for selection and left untouched for several days.
Donations for these poppies should be made online (no cash): CLICK 

The hub will once again be running its Christmas Projects although, in common with many things these days, not in the same way as previous years.
Instead of providing Christmas Lunch on Jesus hampers we will be giving Aldi supermarket vouchers to 100 local families in crisis so that they can purchase food for a Christmas meal.
These vouchers cannot be used for alcohol, the lottery or tobacco.
We will not be collecting toys this year but instead will be making a financial donation to local children’s centres for them to spend on the children they care for.
We are looking to raise £7, 500 for these projects so if you would like to contribute please either send a cheque payable to Purley Food Hub with ‘Christmas Projects’ written on the reverse (post to Joanna Walker, Purley Food Hub, c/o Purley Baptist Church, Banstead Road, CR8 3EA) or you can donate online at Please specify ‘Christmas Projects’ in the reference box.
If you have any questions please contact Jean Ludlow on 07546 635295 or email

Our churches are back open for worship! 
Sunday in-Church joint service worship has moved to St Barnabas, Purley for October (Wednesday remains at All Saints) 

Throughout September, our in-church services  at All Saints, warmly welcomed worshippers from both parishes.  Sunday services have now moved to St Barnabas, Purley for October, but the Wednesday services will remain at All Saints.

Places are limited and must be booked in advance. The services will be as follows:

  • 10am Eucharist on Sunday Mornings (St Barnabas, Purley)

  • 11am Holy Communion on Wednesday Mornings (All Saint’s Kenley) 

You can book via Eventbrite - see our web page here. For those without the internet, please call the Parish Office who will be happy to take your booking. 

These are in addition to our weekly Sunday morning service on Zoom, and our daily Monday to Friday Morning and Night Prayer, and The Lord’s Prayer at 1pm, held via Facebook.

 Our Covid-secure guidelines remain in place, in order to assure social distancing:

•             Masks are compulsory, unless exempt, and there are plenty of hand sanitisers available.
•             There is music (but no singing) and everything is relayed via PowerPoint and a screen, so no paper service booklets.
•             Holy Communion is received as the wafer (the Host) alone and there are no after-service refreshments.

Churchwardens have undertaken a thorough risk assessment of each building and numbers have been limited according to the space available, ensuring a safe space to worship together.

Please be assured that there is no rush to return to the church buildings if you feel uneasy or uncertain. We are planning on taking small steps into this new way of worshipping God, with patience and trust in him to lead us forwards into the future.
