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.

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 – May 2019
The verse on the bulletin this month (“Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was fully strengthened in his faith, and gave glory to God, being persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised; this is why it was credited to him as righteousness.” – Romans 4:20-22) relates to Abraham, the Father of Many Nations, called by God at 100 years of age to serve him. His wife was barren, but he believed God’s promise that he would be the father of many nations, and at 100 Sarah gave birth to Isaac.
The story would make newspaper headlines today, just as it probably did in Abraham’s time of 19th century BC. Christian history is littered with stories of how famous people, as well as ordinary people in the pews, have lived their lives in faith and received God’s promises for their lives.
I hope Easter has been a time for all of us to receive a boost to our faith, an expectant faith to believe that God has plans for all our lives, and wants to bless us, in every situation of life.
Faith comes by hearing the word of God, not just on Sundays but the daily feeding of our faith by reading God’s word, as we journey to Pentecost and Trinity Sunday. Perhaps we can make that extra effort to read God’s word, to explore what God wants to say to us, to give us maybe direction, or simply grow in faith in order that we lay hold on God’s promises for ourselves
