Church Services

This tradition has always been part of the identity of All Saints.

Our worship may look formal, but we do not have lots of rules about what to do and how to behave – when you come you are free to  join in as feels right for you. It’s fine just to sit and let the worship ”wash over” you.

 

We usually publish a very short summary of the sermon preached at the 10.00am service on Sundays on our facebook page
