April 2021 - We Are Open!
The past 12 months have been very unusual with both of our church buildings having to close for the various national lockdowns. The good news is that both buildings are now back open for regular Sunday services. We are currently meeting at the following times every Sunday.
0900: All Saints Little Billing
1030: St Andrews Great Billing
16.00: St Andrews Great Billing - Informal family service
What Can I Expect?
If you come to a live service you will be required to wear a facemask (unless you are exempt) and to observe the 1m+ social distancing guidelines. Out services are slightly shorter than they were, and at present we are not permitted to sing - so we are listeng to hymns instead. We still pray and participate in communion, and the heart of our service continues to be us hearing and recieving God's word as it is read and explained to us.
What if I am not ready to return?
For those who do not feel able to return to live services yet we will be continuing to broadcast the 10.30 service on FacebooK Live. You can find the Billing Church Facebook page here: www.facebook.com/AllSaintsandStAndrews.
If we can help you in any practical ways in these uncertain times, for example by helping with shopping or running other errands please do get in touch by either calling the rectory on 01604 555 186 or by e-mailing the church on Allsaintandrews@hotmail.com. We are here to help everyone in the parish.

We are a warm and welcoming Anglican Church on the Eastern edge of Northampton, seeking to know Jesus and make him known to others.
At the heart of all of our services we open the bible so that we can learn more of Jesus, with the aim that we might grow in our faith in him. We also regularly remember his death on the cross, by sharing the Lord’s Supper together.
Whoever you are, and at whatever age and stage of life or faith that you are at, you are very welcome to come and join us.
We run a creche and children's groups for 4's - 11's at our 10.30 service. Our dress code is informal (just come as you are!). The services usually last somewhere between an hour to an hour and a quater.
