Pastoral Services

All Saints' ministry is not limited by the walls of the building or the borders of the parish.

If you would like to speak to the Vicar or one of our ministry team in private, be that in person or over the phone, that can be arranged.

Maybe you are ill or unable to leave the home for other reasons, but would still like to take Communion.

You may want to request that the Vicar or the church congregation pray for you or a loved one.

There are also Prayer Listeners available for prayer and support after the 8am and 10am services each Sunday in the chapel.
