Growing in Faith
Transforming Child’s Hill
Vision from 2017
All Saints’, being part of the Church of England, is here to serve all parishioners regardless of their beliefs. It is a visible presence not just for the few but the many. We are here to promote the Trinitarian faith of one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We do this mindful of the historic traditions of the Church whilst attempting to interpret such a faith in terms of the contemporary world in which we live.
At All Saints’, we believe that our Church should be friendly, welcoming and that its message should be one of openness and forgiveness. We aim to:
- Share God’s love and proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord, through worship, pastoral care and outreach.
- Build a welcoming, friendly and inclusive community.
- Actively encourage young people into our Church.
