New to Church?
We understand it can be daunting if you’ve never been to church before – or if it’s been a while. To make it easier, we hope that this page will give you some idea of what to expect if you come to a service.
WHERE IS THE CHURCH BUILDING?
All Saints Church can be found at the end of Church street in Easton on the Hill. It has fantastic views over the Welland valley and is directly opposite the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply. The Postcode (For Sat Nav) is PE9 3NZ.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I GET THERE?
As you arrive, a member of the congregation will greet you at the door and will be happy to point you in the right direction. We hope that you will feel warmly welcomed.
The service will normally follow a printed booklet and consists of singing hymns (not currently due to Covid restrictions), Bible reading(s), some prayers and a sermon (about 10 minutes) that aims to explain and apply what the Bible says to our everyday lives. Communion services will give the opportunity for most people to receive the Bread and Wine (though there is no need to do so). Please sit wherever you like – there are not any reserved seats. The service is sound enhanced and there is a loop system.
After the 10.30am service there is a chance for a cuppa. Please feel free to stay around and enjoy tea, coffee or a cold drink and have a chat to other folk.( Again this is not possible due to Covid Restrictions)
In October we started a new monthly service called Joyful Journey. Informal and contemporary it’s on the Second Sunday of each month, starting at 4:30pm and lasting 30 minutes.
WILL I BE ASKED TO GIVE MONEY?
We have a collection plate by the door but there is no obligation to give. If you wish to do so and you are a tax payer then there are Gift Aid envelopes for you to use.
WHAT ABOUT THE LOO?
Unfortunately there are no toilet facilities currently at All Saints.
WHAT’S BEING A CHRISTIAN ALL ABOUT?
It’s a journey in fellowship with the Church in relationship with God through faith in his Son, Jesus Christ, who died that we might live.

We hope this helps to explain something of what this church is like. Please do come along, we’d love to see you! If you are still nervous after reading this, please and we will arrange for someone to meet you and show you around.
