All Saints members have a strong tradition of initiating and founding charitable, ecumenical and community projects and hosting local outreach. One member founded and brought to existence a Christian church and school in Musoto, Uganda, for which All Saints continues to fundraise. Community Meeting Point, a facility in Harpenden for those with mental health challenges is another such story. Harpenden Child Contact Centre and Harpenden Money Advice Centre operate from the Church building and All Saints members are closely involved with both.
Our links are growing with Harpenden’s primary and secondary schools. Jump! is a small ecumenical team operating out of All Saints that gives Christian lessons across all year groups in 2 primaries.
We host an annual Senior Citizens Christmas Concert where the talented musicians of Sir John Lawes High School join us to provide the entertainment. We also work very closely with Batford Methodist Church, welcoming them to a our festival services and organising a Good Friday Walk of Witness together.
Various groups use the facilities of All Saint’s hall. Fingertips Nursery operates four daytime sessions each week. Rainbow Guides and a Brownie Guides meet at All Saints and are invited to major festivals. The building is very frequently hired out by groups including the Dance Studio, Tiny Tots Tunes and flower arranging groups, as well as for private functions like children’s parties. To book the hall or small meeting room please contact the hall manager on 01582 762831 or email Derek Hotchkiss.
