Visiting All Saints

elcome! 

 

We are so happy you’ve found your way here. Whether you are new to town, new to us, new to the Episcopal Church, or new to Christianity entirely, we hope you find All Saints to be a place where you can experience the presence of God and explore and deepen your faith. We invite you to join with us in worship, study, fellowship, and service and this page is designed to help you get a sense of who we are, what you can expect when you visit, and how you can connect with us.

No matter your age, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality, or political affiliation, and no matter where you are on your spiritual journey, we welcome you and invite you to participate fully in every aspect of our parish life.

In-Person + Online Worship

We offer two in-person worship options every Sunday: 8:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist Rite I (that means we use traditional “King James” type language) in our Chapel at 10:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist Rite II (contemporary language) in our Sanctuary. We also offer a service of Evensong (choral Evening Prayer) on the First Sunday of each month (during the school year?) at 5:00 p.m. Both the 10:30 service and Evensong are live-streamed through YouTube, Facebook, and our Website. On occasion, we also offer outdoor worship on Sundays, which we will advertise ahead of time through our newsletter.

What to Wear

It’s up to you. Some of us like to don our “Sunday best” for church while others prefer more casual attire, so we invite you and your family (children too!) to wear what’s comfortable and appropriate for you. We’re just happy you’re here!

 

All Saints Nursery + Children's Chapel 

Our nursery, right next door to the Sanctuary, is available for little ones (infants through age 3) from 10:00 a.m. through the end of the 10:30 service. Children ages 3 through 5th grade are invited to Children’s Chapel for a lesson, craft and snack. Children’s Chapel leaders carry a children’s cross in the processional at the beginning of the service, so the children may join the procession behind the cross and follow the leaders out to their Chapel service. They’ll be escorted back to church in time to join their families for Communion.

Coffee + Cookies

After the 10:30 service, we offer the opportunity for fellowship either outdoors on our patio, weather permitting, or indoors in our parish hall (Thornton Hall). This is a great way for us to meet you and for you to meet some of us and ask questions and make connections. Sometimes we have coffee, lemonade, and cookies, and sometimes we have cheese straws and pie. You never know. Come and find out!

Are You Ready to Become a Member of All Saints?

If you consider this place your home—and we surely hope you do—we would like to talk with you about taking the next steps towards baptism or confirmation. Click here to email us about becoming a member. It is easy to become a formal member of All Saints. When you are ready to formalize your membership, let a member of our clergy know your desire to join the Church. They will invite you in for a conversation about your spiritual journey and the ways you can fulfill your needs and hopes at All Saints. If you are an Episcopalian who belonged to an Episcopal parish somewhere else, you would be asked to have a Letter of Transfer sent to All Saints. If you speak with someone in the office, we can help with that process as well. Know that any person, All Saints member or not, is welcome to attend worship services and activities at All Saints.

Location

We are conveniently located in the West End of Henrico at 8787 River Road. There’s plenty of parking. We look forward to meeting you soon!
