Welcome to the Church by the bridge!
All Saints is a welcoming and friendly church with something for almost everyone! 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 kid’s services led by a worship group and a band, from the ever-popular family service to a Choral Eucharist.
Home groups, men’s groups, women’s groups, a youth group, childrens’ ministry, there is something for everyone.
