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.
We offer accommodation and meals to the homeless and vulnerably housed. Through the Night Shelter project, we provide meals and a place to sleep for homeless people in winter. Volunteers are always needed to help prepare and serve dinner and breakfast, and overnight supervision to ensure the safety of our guests.
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. Children’s Church runs most Sundays under the creative direction of our children’s co-ordinator. During our Sunday morning Eucharist, children are invited to participate in colourful activities cleverly matched with the day’s readings and lessons. 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 every month in 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.
