We also meet for midweek fellowship through a house group.

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 – October 2019
Dear Friends The season we now enter of Autumn is perhaps one to give us time to reflect. The summer has maybe become a distant memory, of sunny, warm days, times of refreshment with families and friends and memorable holidays. But now the days are drawing in, gardens need to be cleared up, routine maintenance on the house is needed to prepare for winter. The verse this month reminds us that for every season, there is a plan and purpose to our lives that God has in mind for us. The season of Autumn gives us space to reflect on the season of summer, hopefully to look back on ways that in times of warm relaxation we have enjoyed God’s blessings. But also to evaluate in times of Harvest thanksgiving, what we have to offer back to God in his service. Farmers are busy gathering in the fruits of their plantings, and we too need to think what we can offer in God’s service to the church. There are plenty of jobs to be taken up in church, and June and Lesley, our churchwardens, will gladly direct you to find what God wants you to do. I wonder if we could meet the challenge of this month’s verse to find in this season of Autumn, what purpose God has for our life? Blessings Alan Buckley, Lay Minister
