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).
We also usually meet for midweek fellowship through a house group, however, midweek meetings remain suspended due to Covid.
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.

Message from our Missional Leader – Alan Buckley
What a fantastic start we have enjoyed in our services since we opened on Passion Sunday. And then Easter, where it can only be said that the services were inspired by the Holy Spirit. A big thank you to our guest celebrants who made our services so special.
It was great to see so many of the congregation back worshipping together in church and being able to speak face to face. The atmosphere was made fragrant with the marvellous display of flowers and again, a special thanks to the ladies who spent many hours working on the displays.
It is also a joy to welcome new friends to our fellowship, and we do look forward to the day when we can all meet up after the service to enjoy refreshments and chat again.
However, the message of Easter is to “go and tell” – something we should never lose sight of. We need to plan ahead in mission as to how we can draw others into the Gospel, which events we can plan for when restrictions hopefully will be eased in July, and ask ourselves ‘what part can I play in the church’s mission?’
Alan Buckley, Lay Minister
