Who We Are
We come from all over the greater Edmonton area. We come to All Saints’ because we love the people, the music, the traditional and the contemporary Anglican Liturgy. We come because our parents or partners or children or friends brought us. We come because we found All Saints’ when we were alone in the city. We come because we live downtown and it looks like a great place to go.
We are people from families who have for generations lived in Canada. We are immigrants and refugees. We are visitors and old time city residents. We all feel at home here because we are such a diverse group.
What We Believe
WE BELIEVE in God, creator of the universe. We experience our humanity as loved people of God through the life, the teaching and the healing love of Jesus Christ.
We come together in community to find, explore and deepen our spirituality through the liturgy of our church services; through our care and love for each other; through our actions to care for those around us beyond our church.
We believe in the Trinity:
- We know God as the Creator of all
- We know God the Holy Spirit, the presence of God within each of us
- We know God the Son who came to earth to save us through His life, His death, and His resurrection
“For us as Christians, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is proof positive that love is stronger than hate, that life is stronger than death, that light is stronger than darkness, that laughter, joy, compassion, gentleness, and truth are all so much stronger than their ghastly counterparts.”Desmond Tutu - former Archbishop of Cape Town, from his book ``No Future Without Forgiveness``
Our Mission Statement
As a partner in the worldwide Anglican Communion and in the universal Church, we proclaim and celebrate the gospel of Jesus Christ in worship and action. We value our heritage of biblical faith, reason, liturgy, tradition, bishops and synods, and the rich variety of our life in community.
We acknowledge that God is calling us to greater diversity of membership, wider participation in ministry and leadership, better stewardship in God’s creation and a stronger resolve in challenging attitudes and structures that cause injustice. Guided by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to respond to this call in love and service and so more fully live the life of Christ.
