Plans for animal blessing service

Plans are well-advanced at All Saints for the upcoming animal blessing service. Scheduled for Sunday 1st October which is national Animal Welfare Sunday the service is hosted by All Saints on behalf of Churches Together in Wokingham as an ecumenical service of thanksgiving for creation with a special emphasis on animal welfare. It is strongly supported by the Anglican Society for the Welfare of Animals of which All Saints parish is a member. Every animal brought to the service will receive prayer, including prayer for healing where requested.
The preacher this year is the Bishop of Reading, the Rt Revd Stephen Cottrell. It is open to all, with or without accompanying animals and starts at 3pm.
