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 – December 2019
I wonder how we are prepared for Christmas, the shops had Christmas cards on sale in August. Maybe we have bought all our Christmas presents by now with all the pre Christmas sales. Or maybe this year has gone so fast we have lost track of time, and the next few weeks will be frantic in putting Christmas together.
But in all this rush we seem to forget there is a beautiful time of Christian season called Advent. Advent is a time to draw aside and reflect on the coming season of God coming to earth in the person of Jesus. A time to take stock of the past year, its joys, its problems, opportunities taken and lost, but hope that God is in everything we do and is there for us.
We start Advent Sunday with a Service of Light in the morning, and in the evening an Advent Carol service (detail on next page.) I would encourage you to attend them both, to start our Advent journey of faith, as we approach Christmas, to find out what God is saying to us. Advent is a time to reflect and listen to that still small voice within, take time out for a deeper relationship with Jesus, so when Christmas comes we are ready to worship Jesus with all our heart.
Pastoral Care Just a gentle reminder that Fr. Tom is always available to offer private prayer, particularly in cases of illness, or times of distress, both to members of the congregation, and also all who live in this parish.
