Welcome to All Saints Church, Banstead

Hello and welcome to All Saints. All are welcome to join us on the High Street in Banstead. We are a Church of England church.
We are part of the Banstead 5 group of churches - you can find out more about this here: Banstead5
At All Saints we worship God together in different ways. We try to always make our faith and trust in Jesus grow. We want to be a loving, supportive family of all ages who make the good news of Jesus accessible for everyone.
We aim to be a community of disciples, confidently sharing the good news about Jesus through word and action in the community of Banstead and beyond. This means we will continue learning to "love God and love others as we love ourselves."
At the heart of all we do is our belief in God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that we can know God through the Bible, and that He has revealed himself most clearly through his Son, Jesus Christ. We believe God makes himself known personally to each of us through the work of the Holy Spirit. We believe that our faith never stops growing and developing as we try to live faithful and obedient lives following Jesus, and demonstrating his love to others so that they might come to know Him too.

John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life."

Please pray for us all in this time of transition.

Church redecoration

From Monday 24th July full redecoration and minor repairs to the church will start. The building is Grade II* listed, which means specialist work, and this will require fixed scaffolding inside the church. So the building will be closed until October. Worship will continue on Sundays in the Institute from 30th July. Wednesday Communion services and Prayers for Peace will be held in the United Reformed Church in Woodmansterne Lane from 26th July.
