All Saints Parish ChurchServing the Community of Southport
We also meet for midweek fellowship through a house group.
As a Church we love Jesus and want others to have the opportunity of experiencing God’s love and care in their own lives.
Real PeopleIn the real world
As a Church we also aim to look beyond ourselves and so contribute to helping mission projects overseas.
We love Jesus and want others to have the opportunity of experiencing God’s love and care in their own lives.
All Saints is also involved in a ‘Creating Community’ project. This aims to provide activities, mainly on the Church premises for local people, thus encouraging a closer community, working together and helping each other. These activities include a Toddler group, Coffee morning and Diners Club. There are also many one-off events such as Quiz nights, Art sessions and Poetry evenings run throughout the year, bringing the community together.
80% of the people living in All Saints Parish are of retirement age, so the Church aims to help the elderly through visiting and holding set services organised for those in Rest/Care homes.

From Alan our Local Missional Leader – November 2019
‘Lest we forget’, a phrase so often used, but do we forget the sacrifice of those who laid down their lives for freedom of speech and for all of us to enjoy our peaceful way of life.
It is only a year ago we gave thanks on the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One. But all those memories of battles fought, won, and lost, of which we were reminded last year, have become like a vapour of a memory long forgotten
Yet we remember 2000 years ago how Jesus was betrayed at the last supper, lest we forget. We take the bread and wine, lest we forget that after the last supper Jesus went to the cross to fulfil God’s rescue plan for mankind. That all mankind could have a living relationship with God because of the sacrifice of Jesus in laying down his life for our sins.
Remembrance Sunday is not only a time to remember those in the two World Wars and many wars since who died for their country. But the sacrifice of Jesus in dying for our sin, and offering us the gift of forgiveness and eternal life if only we just ask him for it.
Alan Buckley, Lay Minister
