Vision and goals
Our aspiration for All Saints Church is for God to be central in all that we do and in the lives of all our members, and to share the love of God with those around, serving the community and witnessing to others about the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

What we believe
Here is a brief overview of our Christian faith:
God, who created all things, has shown himself to the world so that we can know what he is like. God has also created a way that the troubles of the world and the evils of our hearts can be completely overturned.
Through human history God has revealed his wisdom in various ways, but most important of all was when Jesus of Nazareth was born around 2,000 years ago. Jesus was 'the One' (the Christ), sent into the world by God, to live a faultless human life and die as a perfect substitute.
Anyone can have faith in God and trust in Jesus Christ, living in the way that he taught and growing by the power that he gives. The outcome of this faith is that your personal faults are overcome, your guilt is removed, and your destiny is secured with God in heaven.
