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 – February 2019
First of all, Happy New Year to everyone. Advent and Christmas seem but distant memories now, yet it is good to reflect on how good God was to us over that period, including Increased numbers to our services and people saying that they felt the presence of God with us; it was great to meet in Holy Trinity Church for the Carol Service, and in All Saints Church for the Advent Meditation Service with Canon Rod Garner, not forgetting the visit from Norwood Road School for the Christmas event, and the Carols by Candlelight year end service.
Now we start the new year, expectant with God, to see what he will do in our parish. Mission is the key, whether that is distributing leaflets, helping at events, such as CAMEO, or at the Bereavement Group, or maybe just speaking a word of encouragement to someone and offering a prayer. God will use everything we offer of ourselves; nothing is ever wasted in his service.
I am aware that everything seems to be coming up early in the garden, and this reminds us that we need to be ready for the opportunities that come our way day by day: that chance meeting, conversations that come up without warning. Remember our verse of the year: “It is the Lord who goes before us”. If we look to him day by day, we will be ready for the wonderful things he has in store for us.
