Churchwardens are elected each year at the annual parish meeting. They are senior lay honorary officers and work closely with the incumbent in the discharge of administrative duties of the Parish
I moved into the village after marrying Gill, who is a Barton Leek, in April 1976 and commenced worshipping at All Saints after our two children commenced attending Sunday School in approximately 1982.
I have previously held the positions as Treasurer to the PCC, Sacristan and still act as a Server of the Sanctuary and assist with administrating of the chalice at Holy Communion.
The position of Church Warden seemed to be natural progression of my faith to assist in running of our church and to put back some of that love and guidence that we have received over the many years we have attended All Saints Earls Barton.
My husband David and I moved to the village after our marriage in 1972 and have worshipped at All Saints since then. I have been in the Church Choir and David has been an altar server for all of that time. Our children, Stuart, Laura and Robert have moved away from the village, but frequently return to the roost with our grandchildren Issey (who now also sings in the church choir) and Alexander who was recently baptised at All Saints.
Although I have retired from working with and for children with additional needs, my time is very full with voluntary work in the Church and also as a Trustee of an Academy for pupils who are ‘out of school’ for any reason. I also enjoy singing with Earls Barton Music. How did I find time to go to work?
