All Saints' church is not just a building. It is a community which offers support and friendship to all who are in the parish of Stone and Woodford. We are part of the Berkeley Benefice, within the Diocese of Gloucester.
The church has been at the heart of the community for over eight hundred years. While village life and landscape have changed much over that time, the church remains home to a friendly and welcoming congregation who do their best to keep it going for future generations.
All Saints' is a place for prayer, reflection and worship, where you will find a warm and peaceful welcome.
You are very welcome at any of our services, but before coming along have a look at the calendar. On a 5th Sunday we share a 'Benefice' service with our partner churches in Berkeley and Hill, and these services are not always in All Saints'.
Facilities and Access
There is no step from the porch into the church. The door is heavy but isn't too difficult to open.
We don't have any disabled facilities. The majority of the church floor is level..
Assistance Dogs are welcome.
An induction Loop System is installed.
The church is always open during daylight hours
Guides (small black and white booklet) are available on the table as you enter the church.
Unfortunately we don't yet have a loo, but we are hoping to have one in the next year - the fund-raising has started! Meanwhile, a 'portaloo' can be hired for events, such as weddings, funerals and concerts.
The tower is out of bounds to the general public.
We have some beautiful stained glass windows.
Our church is Medieval and is listed Grade II*. There are several very interesting table tombstones in the graveyard.
The church tower has six bells. Our team of ringers ring for all of our Sunday services and can ring at weddings and funerals. The tower is home to 'Let's Ring', a successful bell ringing course for teenagers,
We have a lovely organ which is used at most of our services. It can used at weddings or funerals by arrangement.
We have a small choir which performs at special services and events.
We love holding concerts and musical events. Get in touch if you'd like to organise something!
We have a microphone if needed.
Our regular 'Open the Book' team works in the village primary school. There are activities for children at the 11.00 am service in Berkeley.
