 Welcome to All Saints 

All Saints 

All Saints Parish Church has been a centre for the Rayne community for over 1,000 years.


Our church building has undergone several transformations over the ages. Most recently, we have remodelled the inside of the church so that we can better fulfil our outreach and mission to our community. 

We want to be a church that is growing: growing in faith, growing in number, and growing good in our community. 

Come and join us!

Faith

Being a disciple of Jesus means that we are continuing to learn and grow as we follow him.

If you have questions about the Christian faith we run an Alpha course each year that provides a time to share with others who are asking similar questions. 

If you'd like to go deeper in your faith, Rev Roman hosts a a weekly Bible study, and we offer courses to go deeper in Lent and Advent.

If you would like to find out about taking a step of faith through baptism or confirmation, please click here.

Children and families

Jesus welcomed little children to him and we want to follow his example.

Our all age service takes place on the Second Sunday of the month at 9.30am. It is more informal, and designed with wriggly children in mind. We encourage all families who are enquiring about baptism to first come along to this service.

Find out more about our other Children and Families activities here.

Community

We love hosting events that involve the whole community; from school visits to concerts; Sponsored Bounces to Teddy Bear Parachute Jumps; and delicious dinners - All Saint's specialty!
 

We want to be at the heart of the community in Rayne village. We host weekly meals in the Old School Room where everyone is welcome: Lunch Club is monthly on a Tuesday and Soup and Sandwiches takes place on Thursday lunchtime.

Funerals

The death of someone close is a very sad time and there is always such a lot to do when you least feel able to cope.  Whatever your needs, we are here to help at this difficult time.
