Beating of the Bounds – Thursday 9th May 2024

Our annual Ascension Day celebrations will be taking place this year on Thursday 9 May. Ascension Day is an important date in the life of All Hallows, celebrating Jesus’s ascension into heaven forty days after Easter. We mark Ascension Day with a ceremony of ‘Beating the Bounds’ where we walk around and pray for the parish, including all who live and work here. This is followed by a service of Choral Evensong at 6pm.
You are all most welcome to join us for these celebrations, and you will find attached an invitation. Please gather in the church at 4pm and the procession will begin at 4.15pm. Do invite your fellow liverymen and any others who might be interested in joining, and I would be very grateful if you could RSVP to give us an idea of numbers.  Please RSVP to the parish office of All Hallows
