On December 3rd the New Zealand Government entered a new phase of protections around the Covid-19 pandemic. The Traffic Light Framework requires that all public events (including special services) must only take place when Vaccination Passes are being used for admission. As All Saints’ has a number of these we have had to take steps to ensure we are meeting all relevant requirements. As such all those who are attending services at All Saints’ Gladstone must present their Covid-19 Vaccination Pass when entering the building.
Welcome to the Church by the bridge!
All Saints is a welcoming and friendly church with something for almost everyone! The Parish is lead by the Rev. Richard Aitken who, along with his wife and children, has been a part of the Invercargill Anglican church community for the past nine years.
This site gives an introduction to the life of the parish, but you are always welcome to come and try us out! We seek to share in the life of the Triune God, with all the richness, welcome, hospitality, inclusion and abundant redemption of the divine relationship in God that is so generously shared with humankind through the life, ministry, death, resurrection and ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ, and made available through God the Holy Spirit.
Stunningly situated by the Waihopai River in Invercargill, All Saints is a landmark on the north road into the city. It’s often referred to as the ‘church by the bridge’ or as ‘the church with the open door’. The open door is a feature of the ministry to the community of All Saints, and many people come in and out of the open door during the week, for prayer, for quietness or to admire the beautiful stained glass windows.
All Saints offers a variety of opportunities for worship, from traditional language Holy Communion to gently charismatic evening services, from a monthly service just for children, from the ever-popular family service to a Choral Eucharist.
Home groups, study groups, family and childrens’ ministry, there is something for everyone.
