Remembrance Sunday was led by the children and officers of the
Church Lads' and Church Girls' Brigade.

The band played all the hymns with John Playing the Last Post and Rouse.

The Exhortation and Kohima Epitaph were read out whilst
 Toby and Imogen carried the poppy wreath to the front and laid it at the altar steps.

The children wrote and read their own prayers for peace and assisted with 
the sermon given by Rev'd Sue Morgan.

After the service the band gave a 15 minute concert of favourite war time songs.

I am sure you will all agree, it is great to see so many children playing instruments
 and being involved with the service

50th Anniversary of All Saints and Martyrs Church

On the 1st November 2014, All Saints and Martyrs Church celebrated 50 years
of serving the people of Langley.  Many former priests and curates returned to help
 with a celebratory service. 

As usual we had a super buffet after the service and a good catch up chat.

A good time was had by all.

Many thanks to Bishop Bob for leading the service and also cutting the cake.


On the 9th November Lilly Mae was baptised by Canon Philip Miller.
Also Baptised along with her was her father Nathan and her Aunty Stacey.
Lilly Mae is seen here in her daddy's arms, with her sister holding on to mummy Lynsey's hand.
