The Church is Open

Please join us for our physical services, and our online services.

Toddlers

All toddlers and babies are welcome at any time for any service at All Souls. We love the sound of children in the service, and also have a family room with a window into the Worship space if any children, or parents, prefer playing with sand or colouring. The room includes speakers so no one needs to miss out on the songs or sermon.
