All Saints' Church Banksome Park

All Saints is an evangelical Anglican Parish Church close to Branksome Beach in Poole, with worshipping congregations and activities for all ages serving a local community, with connections to an onsite nursery and 3 Church of England schools. Our congregations together attract around 200 adults, 25 young children and some youth each week.
Our purpose is to be Christ-like and point people to Jesus. Our aim is to be a welcoming, prayerful, Christ-centred community. A Church that cares for the local environment, showing God’s love by serving our community and the wider world. Our vision is to be Christian family of all ages and stages of faith, embracing the local community, a place of faith and hope, a place to grow in the discipleship of Jesus and a springboard for mission.
We seek to be evangelical, environmentally responsible and ecumenical, embracing different ways of expressing our worship to God. We meet to worship God and to be changed by His Word, to live in the power of His Spirit, and to be His hands and feet in our community.
Before the Covid lockdown began, the church family met across services at 8am, 9.30am, 11am and most Sundays at 6.30pm. The 8am and 11am services are more traditional and the 9:30am service is a family service. Our relatively new Evening service – Encounter, a word and worship group, started over a year ago allows time for a more extended time for worship, Bible-teaching and prayer with a more charismatic feel to it. During the lockdown we have sought new ways to meet as a church family with a virtual Sunday service and midweek home groups through the use of Zoom.
Our children’s church (Sunday school) pre-lockdown was at our 9.30am Family Service with two main groups meeting in the church hall, one upstairs for Junior school (Year 3 and above) and one downstairs for babies and toddlers up to year two, with parents. Our Children stay in the Family service for the first part of the service. Once Covid regulations allow, we are exploring ways to adapt our Family service to have a fortnightly breakfast Church during term time.
