All Saints Parish ChurchServing the Community of Southport
All Saints consists of a caring, friendly group of believers who aim to ‘love God with all their heart, mind, soul and strength and to love their neighbours as themselves. We meet regularly for worship – on Sundays at 10am for our main service, and on Wednesdays at 10:30am for a traditional (Book of Common Prayer) service. Following the Wednesday service the church is open for prayer.
Please note There will be services of Holy Communion on Sunday 9th and 23rd February at 3:30pm in church (in addition to the 10:00am Morning Worship service on these days). This is an experiment which will run until Easter, to facilitate those who wish to receive Holy Communion every week.
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 – February 2020
By the time we read this bulletin, we, as a nation, will be out of the EU. A new direction, new beginnings, new opportunities and hope. But maybe also, for many, a time to wonder if we have done the right thing. We need, as a nation and community, to reach out with healing to those still hurting with the decision to leave. Also, in our own lives, we have experienced the anticipation of the new year, one full of expectation and hope. Maybe last year did not work out as we had wished, and now in 2020, our hope is for a better year. But we need to ask ourselves the question, “Is my hope in what I can do, or is it grounded by faith in Jesus?” Jesus said in John 10: 10, ‘I have come that you might have life, and life in all its fullness.’ The life that Jesus gives us is a gift when we can trust and look to Him for our lives. It is the quality of this life that will see us through the ups and downs that we all experience. Are we prepared, in this new year, for Jesus to do new things in our lives, in the church, and in the lives of those whom we love? This is the challenge of the new year for each one of us. Blessings,
Alan, Lay Minister
