At All Saints Church we like to encourage every member to use their God-given spiritual gifts and natural abilities in the service of God. Your gifts may be practical, caring, teaching or administrative. Whatever your gifts, the clergy team at All Saints would be happy to help you and support you, as you help and support others, by using them both within and outside the church building.
All Saints is passionate about supporting local initiatives. We believe that we have a God-given responsibility to respond to the needs of the wider community.
Local ventures the church is involved in include:
Residential Homes - the church family offer personal visits to residents in our residential homes; Holy Communion is available to individuals and/or small groups of residents, and prayer is offered for residents and/or their families for peace, healing and any other matters of concern. Please contact Revd Di or Revd Dion if a relative or close friend in a residential home would appreciate a visit.
There is a collection point at All Saints, Gurnard
All Saints is committed to working with other churches in the Cowes area to proclaim the good news about Jesus and to be involved in joint educational, civic and social ventures.
All Saints is an active member of this group in Cowes and supports our Circle dancing group every month on the 1st Thursday between 2:15 – 3:45pm in Gurnard Village Hall. Circle Dancing is a group for those who are living with forms of dementia and their families. The group is led by members from the Churches Together in Cowes team. Each month we enjoy meeting up for some light exercise accompanying various activities to help keep us all mobile. We also have time for refreshments as well!
All Saints also supports another group held in our All Saints Garden Room. The ‘Elephant Club’ is a monthly group that meets on the 3rd Thursday between 2 – 4pm. The group supports those who struggle with dementia. It’s a fun group that involves many different activities but always with a different monthly theme. Quizzes, musical memories, refreshments, alphabet memories and we end with our rendition of Nelly the Elephant!
If you would like to get more involved please feel free to call Mandy Miller on 01983 291185.
