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      

NOTICES

FINANCE: During these difficult times, All Saints’, like many other churches, is losing income from rental of the hall and lack of collections. Please continue to use your weekly envelope for your planned giving to support the work of All Saints’.  These will be collected when services resume. We are in the process of adding a ‘donate now’ button to this website. Please remember church finances in your prayers.

CORONAVIRUS: 

All Saints’ Church is a friendly, welcoming congregation.

 There is now a service of Holy Communion at 11:30am on Sundays.

For everyone’s health and safety we will be adhering to safer social distancing of 2 metres.
