“Be still and know that I am God.” – Psalm 46: 10

 


The church is currently open for private prayer on Wednesdays and Sundays 10 – 11am but please note that we will be resuming our normal pattern of services from Sunday 2nd August (please be aware that, for everyone’s safety, we will be continuing to follow church and government guidelines, some of which are outlined below).  


• The church has been set out to observe the 2 metre rule, with pews having being distanced to meet this requirement. There will be two welcomers on standby in the foyer to show you to a suitable seat where you can pray in safety. All carpets have been removed from the seating to ensure hygiene is not compromised, which means sitting on the wooden pew. If you think this might be uncomfortable, please feel free to bring your own cushion (and take it away as well).


• In the foyer there will be a supply of masks, disinfectant wipes, and antiseptic gel which we would ask you to use on entry and exit from the church. We will keep you informed of further updates to the situation as they arise.

If you have any queries, please  contact Alan Buckley (our Local Missional Leader) on 0758 330 0856. Thank you.

Worship

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 10:30am for a traditional, Book of Common Prayer, service.  (The Church is open for quiet prayer and meditation from 9:45 on Wednesdays before this service

Please note There will be services of Holy Communion on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at 3:30pm in church (in addition to the 10:00am Morning Worship service on these days).  

 

We also usually 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 People

In 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.

Message from our Missional Leader – Allan Buckley

Dear friends,

Where has the past six months gone? Even with self isolation, it seems no time since our end of year service of 2019. It has been a time of upheaval both as a nation and for each one of us, personally. But one thing keeps us all going and that is hope. Hope that a vaccine might be found, that we can get back to normal life and meet up with friends and family whom we haven’t seen for a long time. 

Hope has to be focused on both reality and faith. We hope that life will return to some sort of normality for us, but our hope has to be in a God who is there for us every day to give us hope that He has everything under control and wants us to both feel and know His love and care for us.

Our hope comes from the finished work of the cross, when Jesus died to give us the sure hope of eternal life. He said “It is finished” and nothing more needed to be added. We rest in that hope that God, because of Jesus, will meet our every need when we turn to Him in prayer.

Blessings and stay safe
Alan Buckley, Lay Minister
