At All Saints we believe that Jesus came to reach out to everyone and to draw us all close to God.
We want to be an inclusive, generous, honest and above all, a loving church community that serves those who live around us.
Whatever your background or lifestyle we believe that Jesus can bring you strength, hope and meaning; a fresh start and a new life. Whoever you are we believe that God cares for you and wants the best for you. We believe that lives can be changed through the transforming power of God.
We try to be a friendly supportive community who care for each other in good times and hard times. We believe that it helps to belong to a small group of some sort and to have the opportunity to get to know some people more deeply. Home groups can be an invaluable way of sharing ideas, feelings and learning together. We would encourage everyone to join one and can offer help in choosing a group that is right for you.

Life can be tough and there are times in all of our lives when we need more help. You may be facing family challenges, issues around identity and sexuality, loneliness, or financial difficulties. If you are struggling with personal issues of any sort we are happy to help where we can and can signpost specialist support if that would be helpful. If you want to talk to someone please contact:
Rev Nigel Rawlinson or Mandy Falkus (Pastoral Care Co-ordinator)
We all have times when we need help. Clergy and staff members will always try to visit in the case of serious illness, bereavement or other need. Home communion can be arranged for those who are housebound.
