Message from the Vicar
It's wonderful to welcome you to the website of these two churches, where I am very proud to be the vicar.
Our two churches not only have a vast amount of history between them, having stood witness to over five hundred years of history, they are also places of vision and hope for a future for the communities that they serve.
All Saints' Church in Darton is looking for new members for its choir. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings at 6.30 and sing for the Mass every Sunday at 10.30. The first rehearsal for newcomers will be on Wednesday 4th March.
All our services in Lent, Holy Week and Easter are now on this website. Click here for more details.

Join us in Daily Prayer
They are first and foremost churches; places where we meet to give glory to God, to share in His grace freely given to us, to hold in our prayers the cares and concerns of His world, and to welcome all who come to join us.
Through history, churches have been places of refuge, places of safety, places of love, and places of community. We aim to continue this tradition in our two churches, and to be present in the communities that we serve, providing a constant invitation, welcome, support and love as we grow in our Christian faith and mission.
I hope that you find what you are looking for on this website, and whether you are interested in history, community activities, a wedding, a baptism, or joining us for one of our regular services, I hope that you find the invitation here and feel encouraged to come and meet us soon in person.
With love in Christ,
Fr. Tim Stevens
