Rev George Ranking was the first Vicar of the Parish of Woodlands.  Mr Maudson led the congregation in the Mission Hall, sited where the Fire Station is now.  Mr Ranking went on to serve as an Army Chaplain and with Mr Gibbs, the first assistant priest, became one of the millions of casualties of the First World War.

All subsequent Vicars of All Saints have sought to live up to the selfless love shown by Mr Ranking whose Commanding Officer said of him “In him was nothing lacking”.  We pray that it would be true of all his successors.
