Parish Church of Child's Hill

Welcome to All Saints’

All Saints’ is the parish church at the heart of Child’s Hill in NW2. We are an inclusive community where all are welcome regardless of who you are. As a congregation we reflect the wide range of social and ethnic backgrounds which make up the rich diversity of London. We come together weekly to support each other as we grow in our relationship with God through prayer, friendship, and fun. The Church is an oasis of serenity in the midst of the bustle of three major roads (the Finchley Road, Cricklewood Lane and The Hendon Way). If you would like to take a moment for reflection, prayer, or to shelter from the storms of the world outside, do come in and enjoy this sacred space.

The building is open from Monday to Thursday, 9.30am to 6pm.

Sunday Worship

8am Said Eucharist
10am Parish Eucharist

Sunday School

Every Sunday at 10am in Church Hall (not during school holidays). The children’s activities take place in the Church hall and then they join the Church Service for a blessing. Under 3-years-olds must be accompanied.

Services

Our services have their roots in the Catholic Tradition of the Church of England. They are contemporary and engaging. The services (the music, the preaching, the prayers, and the Eucharist) are designed to help us celebrate life, to comfort us where we hurt, and to challenge us where we have grown complacent.

Interfaith Assembly at All Saints’ School

Interfaith Assembly at All Saints’ School

On Wednesday 14th March 2018 All Saints Church of England School, Cricklewood Lane, NW2 had a special assembly with leaders of the three Abrahamic faiths. The new Priest in Charge at All Saints Church, The Reverend Robin Sims-Williams was joined by Rabbi Dov Kaplan of the Hampstead Garden Suburb Synagogue, Ahmad Alkazemi from the Markaz El Tathgheef El Eslami (the Islamic Centre in the Hippodrome at Golders Green), and Steve Derby, director of Interfaith Matters.

The group first attended a whole school assembly in which three of the students, from years 1, 2 and 3 asked the faith leaders questions about their respective faith’s teachings, the purpose of prayer and their distinctive clothing. Steve Derby closed off the assembly saying, “If you take one thing away from today, let it be that you had Rabbi Dov, who is Jewish, Ahmad, who is Muslim, and Fr Robin, who is Christian, sitting together as friends, speaking to you.”

After the assembly the group visited years 4, 5 and 6 so that they could have an opportunity for greater discussion. The children and faith leaders discussed what motivated them to take up their current roles, what they had to do to take on their roles and whether science was a challenge to their faith.

“The students at All Saints’ asked such candid questions, I found myself learning so much from the discussions, and it was wonderful to see the school community engaged in dialogue with our visitors. It was a privilege to speak with and learn from Rabbi Dov and Ahmad in this setting; it is so important for the children to see devout people of different faiths working and laughing together and for us all to develop the skill of having good honest dialogue with people from different faith traditions.” – The Reverend Robin Sims-Williams, Priest in Charge, All Saints’ Church, Child’s Hill.

All Saints School serves a diverse community, and their admissions policy reserves half of the places for children from families from all faiths and none.

Interfaith Circle Time at Alyth Kindergarten

Interfaith Circle Time at Alyth Kindergarten

On Thursday 15th March 2018, a Rabbi, an Imam and a Vicar visited 45 children at Alyth Kindergarten (aged between 2-4 years old):  Imam Yusuf Rawat (Hendon Mosque and Islamic Centre), Rabbi Dov Kaplan (Hampstead Garden Suburb Synagogue) and Revd. Robin Sims-Williams (All Saints Childs Hill). Steve Derby the Director of Interfaith Matters co-ordinated and attended the visit.

“Children are never too young to learn about mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths. The children are learning to respect and celebrate each other’s differences and develop an understanding of diversity through people in the wider world”. Tor Alter, Head Teacher

The Circle Time explored what it means to be different and how we can look after each other regardless of different faiths. The children heard about each of the Faith Leaders traditions and customs and were shown items relating to their religion e.g. a Muslim prayer mat and Qur’an from Imam Yusuf.

“The interfaith talk was a great way to introduce the children to other religions and traditions, making them feel comfortable and familiar with people from different backgrounds and creating a sense of ‘togetherness, peace, harmony and respect.” Vivi Ben-David, Teacher.
