Welcome to Christ with All Saints’ Church

CWAS Outside

CE

Welcome to All Saints’ Church.

We are a church which believe every person is beautifully created in God’s image and we therefore welcome everybody: not regardless of, but because of; your gender, your mental health condition, your physical ability/disability, your race or whether you are gay, straight, bisexual or trans-gendered. We believe because God creates us all wonderfully uniquely, we all have important gifts to bring. We also welcome you if you simply got lost on Lancashire Hill roundabout trying to find the way into town and needed the loo!

We hope you will be able to find what you are looking for on these pages. Christ with All Saints’ is an exciting place to be, with something for everybody; from various services to suit all people, the choir for those who enjoy singing, artistic groups like the Embroidery Group and Flower Arrangers, the many groups aimed at young people, groups for people who are alone and the thriving social life connected with the church. Please do take time to look through the drop down menu.

Whatever it is you are looking for we hope you will find it at CwAS. If you can’t, let us know and we will see what we can offer!

God bless!

Diane Brownhill, Team Vicar
