We are diverse. All Saints Church is an active Christian community whose home is in the heart of downtown Worcester, Massachusetts. We aim to be a visible sign of God’s presence in the world, actively proclaiming and living the Gospel. We are diverse in all the ways in which we describe ourselves, such as age, gender, sexuality, language, race, ancestry, national origin or immigration status, and where we live today. Everyone is welcome and included here.
We are united in worship. Seeking and worshiping God is central to our life together at All Saints. We worship in a style that is rooted in the inclusive Episcopal and Anglican traditions, but our services also reflect the diversity of our community and are enhanced by our rich music traditions. The pandemic in some ways has turned us “inside out” by driving us to use technology to bring worship and the Word outside our walls.
We have many gifts to share. We strive to see a neighbor in everyone and to discern the ministry to which God calls us. Some of our ministries focus on our immediate neighborhood. Examples include programs that offer free music lessons for children, and others that collect and distribute food to those in need. A special set of outreach ministries serve the needs of our neighbors who lack housing. We also have reached abroad by raising funds to install a rainwater collection system to supply clean water for a school in Uganda. (See “Ministries”). Some of our ministries were forced to modify activities during the pandemic, but now we are re-energizing these programs and envisioning new ones.
