Here at All Saints we support and work in partnership with five main missionary organisations.
We regularly pray for these mission partners, we receive and send news, support their projects and initiatives, as well as support financially.
The Children’s Society says this: we are a national charity that works with the country’s most vulnerable children and young people.
We listen. We support. We act. Because no child should feel alone.
We worked with over 11,000 vulnerable children and young people last year, while our policy changes will improve the lives of more than half a million children.
At All Saints we hold a Christingle Service each Advent in support of the Children’s Society and many of our members collect loose change at home to donate.

They provide a drop-in project giving clients a safe place to meet and professionally access advice and advocacy.
They provide specially trained Access to Justice Volunteers who give free legal advice to those who need it.

We at Church Mission Society are a community of people who have been set free to follow God’s call in mission. Thousands of people from all walks of life are part of Church Mission Society – praying, learning and acting together in pursuit of that call.
We believe every Christian – and ultimately every person – is called to join in God’s mission and has the potential to bring challenge, change, hope and freedom to the world. We all have a part to play.
We’ve just begun supporting a young family who work in Malta with Asylum Seekers. Their names are Doug and Jacqui Marshall.

Mission Aviation Fellowship
In today’s ‘connected world’, the irony is that never have so many people been so isolated. Flying onto desert and jungle airstrips, lakes and rivers, tracks and roads, MAF’s light aircraft and their mission pilots go the extra miles to provide a lifeline.
Working in partnership with hundreds of other Christian and relief organisations, MAF enables practical help, physical healing, and spiritual hope to be delivered to many of the most remote and inaccessible communities on the planet. For 70 years, MAF has been flying for life.
