There are many ways you can contribute to All Saints and our local community
Our worship involves the whole parish community, and so there are always opportunities to read, lead prayers, or serve at the altar. The choir and Children's Church are always looking for new members and helpers. Joining the flower team, helping with gardening, serving food and drinks, welcoming visitors, or becoming a member of the All Saints Fellowship are all fantastic ways to be a part of our lively parish.
We welcome and serve those often overlooked in our society. All Saints prepares meals for up to 70 people every month. Our Caritas programme provides a hot meal to those who are homeless, vulnerably housed or those who feel excluded or on the periphery of society. The programme is made possible by a team of dedicated volunteers.
Children and Families
We have a range of activities especially for children and young families
Children are a welcome and respected part of our congregation. We have a special Family Eucharist on the first Sunday of each month in which families can worship together in the main service and a children friendly sermon is preached. Children’s Church currently runs on the third Sunday of the month, and follows the Diddy-Disciples programme, led by our curate and pastoral assistants. Check our calendar for upcoming events featuring activities for children.
Christmas and Easter are special times for children and young families. We hold a variety of seasonal events and services especially for children, including an Easter egg hunt, Christingle service, and a children's Crib Mass. These are full of vibrant interaction, with music, bells, stories and costumes. All are welcome – feel free to dress up and join in the fun!
Messy Church helps children explore the wonderful world of faith. Interactive stories, music, and creative craft activities inspired by our sacred scriptures culminate in a shared meal for children and their parents. Messy Church is held throughout the year in the hall and the church during school term. Check the events calendar for details of our next session!
Families with Young Children
Little Fishes is our early years playgroup
It offers a free play experience for infants, toddlers, and parents in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere during school term. We provide the toys, and our activities include storytelling, singing and dancing, enjoyed over a cup of tea or coffee for parents. There is a small cost per family.
