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
I hope you have enjoyed your Easter. It was a busy but rewarding time
during Lent, as we were blessed by the refreshing Lent course that Rod
and Phil brought to us.
Easter is that special time in the year when we remember that all our
sins were laid upon Jesus, when He paid the ultimate price to redeem us
and open the way into a relationship with God. All our sins, whether by
action or the mind, past, present or yet to be committed, were nailed to
the cross, to be remembered no more.
The only thing God wants us to do is to acknowledge we are sinners,
and ask Jesus into our lives and to take control. It is so simple, so strange
and sad that many miss the way of becoming a Christian.
As Christians, we are called to follow Him, to walk the path of life in faith,
helping others who have no faith, ensuring justice is done for all people.
The path is often hard but we need to remind ourselves that following
Easter comes Pentecost and the coming of the Holy Spirit. The one that
Jesus promised He would send us, to comfort us when needed and also
to make Jesus alive in our lives and experience, to be able to cope with
life with its ups and downs that we all experience.
The frontispiece this month depicts a road. As we travel along the road
of life, let us remember we never walk alone but we have Jesus by our
side (and also in each other!) .
May God bless you all,
Alan Buckley, Lay Minister
