Leycett Mining Deaths Memorial In April 2011 we unveiled, near the South Door, a memorial to the 31 Madeley men and boys killed in an explosion on the morning shift at the fair Lady Pit, Leycett, on 21st January 1880 - see elsewhere on this web site - who were buried in the churchyard on the morning of 25th January 1880. (Another 31 were buried in other parishes.) None of those buried at All Saints' has an individual marked grave; (one was commemorated on his parents' gravestone, 15 years later.) No doubt temporary wooden crosses, all most could afford then, have long since rotted away. The Church Council felt it wrong that none of these men and boys should be named on their own memorial, and the new stone near the South door lists all, with an engraving of the pit head wheel. The stone also commemorates all the other dead of the mining industry in Madeley. A list of those buried at All Saints' follows, with ages and places of residence. The appeal received financial support from the Parish Council and North Staffs Miners Welfare, as well as many individual donations.

LIVING STREAMS United Parishes of Betley and Madeley Living Streams is a new and developing ministry, rooted in the life of the Anglican parishes of All Saints', Madeley and St Margaret's, Betley. Its aim is to encourage and nurture Christian Discipleship through a variety of services, workshops and teaching events, and to promote and facilitate Christian healing. Everyone is welcome to attend. Living Streams derives its name from Ezekiel 47:1-12, where the prophet describes an ever-widening stream which flows out of the temple, and from John 7:38, where Jesus promises that "out of the believer's heart shall flow rivers of living water." In alternate months, at Betley or at Madeley, on the first Sunday of the month, there are united Services of Praise, intended to be opportunities to share in informal worship and to grow through focussed teaching, and Services of Healing and Wholeness, which provide an atmosphere of peace, support and encouragement, in a caring and non-threatening environment. The Healing Services are at St. Margaret's Church, Betley, and allow prayer and quiet as well as music and singing. The Praise Services are at All Saints' Church, Madeley.
Gift Aid Gift Aid and Standing Order forms are available from the back of All Saints' Church. If you presently use the envelope scheme, or if you have a one-off donation to make and you pay tax (income tax or tax on savings) can we urge you to fill one in. The form allows the church to reclaim the tax on these gifts, so that we receive an extra £2.50 for each £10 donated. This scheme replaced the old covenant system and is much more flexible and easy to use. If you have any questions about the operation of this scheme, please contact Lynn Knight.

Roman Catholic No service in Madeley but Sunday Mass 10.30 a.m. at Catholic Church of the Sacred Heart in Mill Street, Silverdale, served from Holy Trinity, Newcastle. Deacon-in-Residence: The Rev. Mr. Neil Adlington, Tel:+44 (0)1782 624325
Deacon-in-Residence The Reverend Mr. Neil Adlington Neil was ordained Deacon by the Archbishop of Birmingham in June 1992, to serve in the parish of St John the Baptist, Alton. He later became a full-time parish deacon in the parish team for Cheadle, Alton and Cotton, before moving to the Church of the Sacred Heart in Silverdale late in 2000, where he has responsibility for the Roman Catholic parish of Silverdale and Madeley. As a parish deacon, Neil can prepare people for the sacraments of the Church, perform baptisms, marriages and funeral services, and minister to the sick and housebound. He and his wife Jackie are based in the Presbytery of the Sacred Heart in Silverdale, where he works alongside the team at Holy Trinity, Newcastle - Mgr Ryall, Fr Jan and Fr Eric, and the Sisters of Mercy. Apart from his duties as deacon, Neil is an enthusiast for sport, especially football, and lists "listening to music" as a major interest.
