We are a large family of people living in and around the village of Denmead. We warmly welcome newcomers – so whether you are visiting, are newly arrived in the area or have been living in Denmead for years, there is always a special welcome for you here.
A Christian church is not a building – it is primarily a community of people who, together and individually, are on a journey of faith. The building provides a focal point for prayer and learning about God, and for celebrating his greatest gift to us – His Son, Jesus. There are many different aspects to life at All Saints, but our main aim is to communicate the Good News of Jesus in all that we do.
Worship at All Saints
You are always welcome to come to any of the services in this church. There is a variety of styles of service, and further details are published in our monthly Parish Chronicle, in weekly notices, and on posters around the church. Arrangements for Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals can be made with the Vicar.
As well as meeting for worship, people at All Saints join in many activities and groups, such as Messy Church, Sunday School, Young People’s activities, the Mothers Union, House Groups, the Sanctuary Guild, occasional Church “Family Fun Days”, Music Band, and much else. The monthly Parish Magazine (the Chronicle) contains lots of informative articles including ‘what’s on’ in the Church, as well as in the village as a whole.
All Saints’ in the Community
The church is a lively part of a thriving village and its members are active in sport, uniformed organisation, schools, politics, music, charities and interest groups of every sort. As “Churches Together in Denmead“, All Saints’, along with the local Baptist and Roman Catholic churches, have an agreement (the “Ecumenical Covenant”) to work together in many forms of learning, worship and outreach. We also support the church and other good causes world-wide through fund-raising events, learning and prayer. We maintain overseas links with the Diocese of Kofridua, Ghana. There is a pastoral care group to help in bereavement, sickness and other types of need.
To find out more please contact any member of the church, and in particular the Vicar or Churchwardens.
