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 – June 2019
June is a month of many happenings as we mark the longest day on the 21st. The 24th is St John the Baptist Day, when we remind ourselves of “one who was crying in the wilderness”. We may think that in our parish mission, we identify ourselves with him, as we faithfully proclaim the love of God, but wonder who is listening?
But on the 9th June, we celebrate Pentecost Sunday, the birthday of the church, the day when the promise of the Holy Spirit was given to a fledgling number of believers and the church was never the same again.
It was the power of the Holy Spirit which enabled weak, nervous, shy men and women to turn the world upside down for God. This is the same power that enables each one of us to both speak and reach out to those who have no faith, have lost the meaning of life, and maybe to whom life has dealt a hard blow, and they feel what’s the point anymore.
But the gospel brings life to such people. John 10:10 records when Jesus said ‘I am come that you might have life’. We have the answer in Jesus to the problems of life and we need to share it with those who are looking, in the power of the Holy Spirit.
