'a serving community; aspiring to follow Jesus; for the good of the world'
All Saints' is a lively and diverse fellowship of people of all ages and ethnicities. We are an Anglican church where the Eucharist is at the heart of our worship. We are open and welcoming to all.
Our mission statement is:
'All Saints' - a servant community; following Jesus; for the good of the world'
All Saints' mission is focused on:
1. More Christians
2. Better (i.e. more effective, faithful, rooted) Christians
3. Living as a servant community
4. For the good of the world
(with acknowledgement to Brian McLaren 'The Church on the Other Side')
More Christians describes our work of evangelism, outreach, prayer, care, creativity, welcome and hospitality
Better Christians embraces our discipleship, worship, preaching, teaching, intercession, stewardship and pastoral care and openness to the prompting of the Holy Spirit.
Living as a servant community reflects our desire to be an open, welcoming, spiritually vibrant, energetic, caring, servant hearted, outward focused fellowship – seeking to make real our unity as Kingdom people: people sharing Eucharistic fellowship
For the good of the world – describes our intention to engage positively with the local community of which we are a part, challenging injustice, championing the cause of the poor and marginalised, seeking reconciliation and healing, caring for the environment and revealing Jesus’ sacrificial love for a world God created good.
Together we seek to be open to the prompting of the Holy Spirit to realise our identity as agents of the Kingdom...
