Welcome to All Saints Church

We're drawing the circle wider!


All Saints Anglican Church, located on the corner of King and Queen Streets in downtown Hamilton is currently  dergoing redevelopment of its property and the community is temporarily relocated in Erskine Presbyterian Church. Our services are at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoons and always include a celebration of the Eucharist.  All are welcome.

 

All Saints has a long history of commitment to social justice, advocacy, mental health and supporting those who are marginalized in our city.   Our mission to “Draw the Circle Wide” includes extending God’s compassion and justice to our non-human friends as well.

Woman:  "What's all that going on up there with the tents?"

Man:  "Oh, it's probably those All Saints people. They do stuff like that..."

This is the real All Saints Church - the people.  We are a Eucharistic community which means that every Sunday there is a service of Holy Communion (or what some call, the Lord’s Supper).  The liturgy is rom the Book of Alternative Services, with very little variation from one week to another.  That sounds a bit boring but in a world where everything is constantly changing, the old familiar words can be very comforting.  Nevertheless, when we return home to our new building, we will have lots of opportunity to “ramp it up” because ours will be moveable space with chairs, not pews.  Our community will be able to move and so will the liturgy.  We will welcome opportunities for creative drama and expressive liturgy that is exciting and life giving.

You may remember our former church building which was located on the "royal corner" of King and Queen Streets. In the fall of 2016 it was demolished to make room for a new accessible church building that will be on the ground floor of a much needed apartment complex. Our new building will help meet the needs of our community in the 21st century, providing worship and outreach space as well as much needed community space for our neighbors.  In the interim, we are worshiping at Erskine Presbyterian Church, just a couple of blocks north west at 19 Pearl street at 2:00 pm.  (Please note that during the summer months our service is in the Fireside room 10:00 am).  Please join us!
