Welcome to All Saints

We seek to Extend God’s Welcome to All!

People have been coming to All Saints church in Sanderstead for over 800 years to meet with God. Of course, over the years many things have changed, but one remains the same: at the heart of church life is Jesus Christ, God’s Son, who gave his life by dying on the cross so that all might be forgiven and enjoy eternal life.

This good news is for everyone without exception. Do take a few moments to read more about activities for both children and adults.

Rev Canon Martin Greenfield

Team Newsletter May 2019

"Unity" In the Acts of the Apostles (Chapter 4 v 32) we read that, ‘all the believers were one in heart and mind.’

Team Newsletter April 2019

31 March 2019

"Prayer, like our Lenten journey, is truly "the heart in pilgrimage". That journey takes us through times of darkness and pain, but ultimately transposes into a different tune of the "softness, and peace, and joy, and love, and bliss" which we experience on Easter Sunday. May God bless you all as you continue your journey..."

Get Involved at All Saints

House Groups

House Groups meet in homes around the parish, mostly in the evening, but some daytime. There are between seven and twelve people in each group. We have a flexible programme of Bible study and discussions. House groups usually meet in term times and break up during Lent for an ecumenical programme of study up to Holy Week. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join a House Group. Please contact Rosemary Kempsell, telephone, 020 8657 0482 or Jeremy Groombridge jeremy@sanderstead-parish.org.uk if you would like to join a house group or for more information.

Green Team

All Saints has a lively green group which organises recycling events and provides information on how to live more sustainably by reducing energy and water consumption and purchasing carbon offsets for air travel. If you would like to know more or even better join the group please contact Richard Bird at birdrichard385@googlemail.com.

Choir

All Saints has a small and dedicated robed choir which, special occasions apart, rehearses from 7.30pm – 8.30pm on alternate Fridays in preparation for Choral Eucharist on the first and third Sundays of the month. There is no formal audition for choir membership, although it would be anticipated that members would be able to follow the overall shape of a musical line at the correct pitch. The choir would welcome new members of any age or voice, providing an ideal opportunity for anyone seeking that unity in diversity offered through part singing in a sacred setting, while not being unduly demanding on time commitment. Enquiries should be directed to the organist and choirmaster, Mr John Jones, via the Parish Office parish.office@sanderstead-parish.org.uk Tel: 0208 657 0665.

Handbells

Two Teams of handbell ringers are based at All Saints. The SAS ringers, who rehearse on a Monday evening, and the 2 O'Clock Bells, who rehearse on Monday afternoon - at 2 o'clock! Both teams would welcome new members who can commit to regular practices. Please also enquire of the teams if you would like to hear us play. More details can be found on our website - www.sandersteadbells.org.uk
