The Anglican tradition generally recognizes two Sacraments of the Gospel: baptism and the Eucharist. Eastern and Western churches have, however, discerned a special sacramental quality in other rites that have long been experienced as sources of supernatural grace. The Western church highlights seven such rites which continue to be formative in Anglo-Catholic identity and spirituality and are therefore central to the witness to the Christian life at All Saints’, especially the daily celebration of the Eucharist, often called Holy Communion, or the Mass.


Baptism (Christening) is the sacrament which welcomes a person into the fellowship of the Church, making him or her a member of God’s family and a part of the body of Christ and regenerating the person in the image of God and the likeness of Christ.

Baptisms normally take place within the Sung Mass (10.00 am) on Sundays but can be arranged at other times or — in emergencies — immediately.

Parents, or adults seeking baptism for themselves, should contact the Rector.


Christian Marriage is the sacrament by which two people become one flesh and commit themselves to mutual love and care for their whole lives, under God’s blessing and guidance.

Please contact the Rector about weddings.

Confession & Absolution

Also known as the sacrament of Reconciliation, the assurance of making confession to God with the support of a priest can be a deeply healing experience for those troubled by their failings or as a regular spiritual discipline.

Please contact the Rector about confession.


When someone we love dies we are beset with many powerful feelings. The funeral service seeks to minister to this delicate situation by committing the departed person into God’s hands, using the Church’s liturgy to express our own complex emotions in an atmosphere of faith, hope and love.

Please contact the Rector if you need practical or spiritual advice when bereaved.
