It's our 150th Birthday!

All Saints’ turns 150 years old in April, and we’re giving everyone the opportunity to buy our church a birthday present!

As with most churches, finances at All Saints’ are tight, and we can’t always spend money on the things we’d like to. Below is our ‘wish list’ – some things we’ll need to buy anyway, some things it would be nice to have, and some things that will be out of our reach without your generosity.

We’d also like to remind you that we always welcome new sign-ups to regular giving and increases in regular giving, and that we would be immensely grateful if you would consider leaving us a legacy in your will.

Please have a look through and consider how you’d like to wish All Saints’ a Happy Birthday! The bigger ticket items especially can be split between several donors. If you have any questions, please contact Daniel or Hannah.
