You have reached the website of All Saints' Church, Hacheston.
We aim to be a welcoming place, growing in God and serving our local community. Outside things are constantly changing, but inside our wonderful C12 church building, the strength of our commitment remains as firm as ever. Please explore the website which explains a little about the church community and our glorious building. Better still come and meet us. We are part of a group of churches and the prayer below is one we are using as we seek to grow together as Christian communities and outwards in our service to God and to our villages.
From August 9 our service pattern will change. We will continue to hold a service on Zoom at 9.30 a.m. to get the link please e mail Bill Clarke . The service sheets (pdf format) for the Zoom Sunday service can be found here; the service sheets for the weekly daily service can be found here. There will also be a service of Holy Communion in a church at 11 a.m. We are aware that although some people are very eager to attend, others will be more reticent, so the one service will serve the whole benefice. We will comply with all the government guidelines that are in force at the time. This includes social distancing, hand sanitising, and the wearing of masks. Other changes that you will notice, is that for the time being there will be no singing, those who receive communion will do so standing up and in one kind (bread only). We will also hold one mid-week service in Hacheston. Towards the end of August we will review what we are doing, with a view to increasing the number and frequency of services.

Orebec Benefice Prayer
Open our hearts to your love, Father God, as we journey with you;
Renew us each day, as we dwell in your presence.
Encourage us when we feel downtrodden,
Bring us comfort when we are sad.
Enliven us so that we may always be ready to serve You, and
Care for others in the strength of God’s love.
Kindle, we pray, all that works towards the coming of your kingdom.

Priest in Charge of the Orebeck Benefice
