All Saints Parish ChurchServing the Community of Southport
All Saints Parish Church Southport meets 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. Prior to the Wednesday service (from 9:45) the church is open for prayer.
We meet at All Saints Church, Rawlinson Road, Southport, Merseyside PR9 9JR.
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 10am for a traditional (Book of Common Prayer) service. Following the Wednesday service the church is open for prayer.
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
We believe that by working together with other churches, God’s Kingdom is more effectively seen in operation. All Saints is involved in and supports many joint church projects including Street Pastors, Schools Worker Trust, Food Bank, Soup Kitchen, Light for Life, Churches Together and The Ecumenical Prayer Time.
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 2018
November will be a very special time this year as we remember that it is 100 years since the guns fell silent at the end of the First World War. The horrors and suffering that were endured will still live on as we look at our TV screens this November in Remembrance programmes.
But in every town and city in England, the effects on families still live on in the impact of war, both from the First and Second World Wars, and also today, where we see the effects on our military returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, people who have given unstinting service to this country in pursuit of peace from terrorism. The sight of limbs having been amputated fills us with sorrow; yet are we not inspired that, in the face of adversity, our brave service men and women, who have suffered such severe injuries, have risen up and taken on challenges that able-bodied people would not be able to do easily.
All our small adversities of life seem nothing compared to those of our service men and women. Where do we find our inspiration to do more for those around us in the community? Jesus promised to be with us in all the ups and downs of life. The question I would ask is ‘Will we let him guide us; do we ask him for help or know him well enough to ask for his help?’
