What We Believe

photograph of "The Head of Cgrist" by Dame Elizabeth Frink in All Saints Church BasingstokeWe believe that the Gospel shows us Jesus welcoming everyone who came to him, and showing us that no one is outside God’s mercy. 

We believe in God who made the world through overflowing love, and that it is in the life, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ that we see most clearly what God is like.

We believe that God loves everyone and is longing for each one of us to love God in return; and we believe that God is merciful  and forgiving, and welcomes everyone. We try to follow God’s example by offering a welcome to anyone who visits All Saints, whether or not they believe in God. If you are interested you are welcome.

No matter where you come from or who you are, you are welcome at All Saints'. We welcome all those who come through the door regardless of age, colour, tradition, gender, sexuality, status. This has led to a congregation which is diverse in background, theology, denomination and worship style.

The Eucharist is central to our worship and hospitality is central to our community.   Worship is formal but relaxed and based on the the Anglo-Catholic tradition.
