Welcome to All Saints Church

We're drawing the circle wider!

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..."

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.

Ministries

PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY


We have a dedicated group of people who meet monthly for fellowship and to knit prayer shawls which are then blessed during the service and distributed to people in need.  The shawls are a warm and gentle reminder to the one who receives it that they are loved and prayed for.  If you would like to join the group but don't know how to knit - no problem!  Someone will show you.  If you have other talents or crafts you would like to work on in the context of the fellowship, please know you are still, most welcome to come out and join us.

St. Matthew's House & other community needs


QUEEN'S GARDEN

We worshipped at Queens Gardens for four years as we waited for our new home to be built.  The new home took longer than expected to be built and we eventually had to move to our new temporary home at Erskine Presbyterian Church, but we haven't forgotten our friends and once a month have a full communion service there.  All made possible by a small group of dedicated All Saints volunteers!

Every week All Saints collects food for St. Matthews House.  Over the course of the year, this adds up to hundreds of pounds of food.  We also collect for other needs, such as backpacks and school supplies for children.  Last May, in celebration of Mother's Day we collected baby clothes and items for new mothers to be given to Grace Haven Home for single young mothers.  In June, to celebrate Father's Day we collected items for men: socks, shaving kits, etc. 

SANTA CLAUS PARADE

Do you go to the Santa Clause Parade?  If you do, stop by at All Saints (where the parade begins) and we will offer you a smile, a warm drink and homemade treat.  A long tradition at All Saints - Hope to see you there!  (As of 2016 this long tradition has been suspended so that the new building can be erected. Once it is up, plan to see us back at the parade, welcoming all who pass by!)


FOOD MINISTIRES!

It really wouldn't be an Anglican church without food, would it? 


Jesus did most of his ministry around the table and we honor that in our Sunday worship which is always a communion service (with the exception of St. Francis Fair). 


Table fellowship opens the path to real relationship.  It builds community and is a balm against the deep loneliness that touches so many of our lives.   Our food ministries come in the way of special dinners, just so we can visit with one another, games days, pot lucks, bazaars and our most important: Annual Christmas Morning Breakfast - for anyone who wishes to join us.  Look for updates in the news section of the website
