• Welcome to All Saints

    Canterbury, Kent.

    Loving God, loving our community, making disciples

  • ABOUT ALL SAINTS

    We're on a mission.

     

    We try to be the focus for a Christian intergenerational family that worships God joyfully each day of our lives, while serving God in our community. As a church we try very hard to remove any barriers that might stop people coming to church, we really do try and welcome everyone.

     

    As a community we love to pray together in faith and play together in fellowship. We care about family life and people in need. We share our resources of time, ability and wealth and share our hope in Jesus, growing in discipleship, responsibility and love of God who has been revealed to us by His Son, Jesus.

     

    On Sundays we meet at:

     

    9.30am for a quiet, traditional Holy Communion service

    11am: Our informal family worship service

    refreshments are served after each service and we have groups for children and young people twice a month,

    but where we can, we worship together as one intergenerational family!

     

    For enquiries about our services, including Baptisms, please contact Rev. Phil Greig

    (Baptisms are conducted during the 11am service once a month)

  • WHAT WE DO

    It is very important for us to reach out to the local community with the message that Jesus brings, that he loves everyone, there is forgiveness and there is hope. We don't just reach out from a distance but live, work, socialise and be in the community around us. Our church isn't just on Military Road but wherever we are making a difference for God. Here are just a couple of the projects we are involved in at the moment: 

    Morning prayer

    Every Tuesday and Thursday

    Safeguarding

    Children, Vulnerable Adults & all of God's people

     

    At All Saints our doors are open to everyone, and we try really hard to welcome all. As such it is important that we take care of everyone who joins us in worship, and in our activities, in that it is a safe space and place for all.

     

    The PCC's Safeguarding policy is something that we take seriously, and follow its procedures the best we can. We have appointed Lin Lindley as our Safeguarding Officer, and the PCC annually reviews and adopts the policy produced by the Diocese of Canterbury.

     

    We also follow the Safer Recruitment procedures when appointing new staff and volunteers and make sure that training happens, and the Diocese keep a list of who has completed it and when.

     

    You can read our Safeguarding policy here and also, did you know that every Diocese in England is having their Safeguarding policies and procedures independently audited? Canterbury Diocese has just received their independent report published and you can read that here.

     

    It is the turn of The Church of England to come under the inquiry of Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse. The Bishop of Dover has written a letter which you can read here about the inquiry, and you can follow the proceedings here.

    Data Protection

    As with every other organisation in the land we have been getting ready for the new rules coming into force on the 25th May relating to how we hold people's data. We have conducted our audits, secured the information and sought consent to contact people.

     

    There are two Data Review Policies for you to read; one for office holders, and one for volunteers. Click on the links to download.

     

    If you would like to give us your consent to contact you about the different things that we do for children, young people, families etc, then please do download our consent form and email to the church.

     

    We will be uploading our Data Protection policy in due course.
