An Open Invitation to a Yearning World
We are experiencing strange and difficult times. The past months have required us to alter the way we live our lives, educate our children, and find community and support. More than ever before, we are challenged to stay connected with family, friends, co-workers, and acquaintances. Many people feel lost and alone in this time. It is more important now than ever to find communities of support.
It is during challenging times that the place of the church is of upmost importance. Churches should be places of support and love. At All Saints’ we work extremely hard to follow Jesus’ greatest command: To love our neighbor as ourselves. All Saints’ church is here for all people, not only those that are comfortable with their faith but also those searching for community and peace, those yearning for connection, and those looking to increase their relationship with a living and loving God.
For almost 250 years, All Saints’ has endeavored to be a faithful witness to the unfailing love of God in the Torresdale section of Philadelphia. All Saints’ is a place where inclusion is expected, where people of all backgrounds are welcomed, and where we continually live into the challenge of expanding our capacity for diverse and dynamic celebrations of God’s inclusive love. If you are seeking to worship and serve Christ wholeheartedly; if you want to belong to a community of faith and be challenged to grow in your journey of faith; if you are seeking sanctuary and refreshment in God–then discover All Saints’.
All Saints’ is a place that is ancient and new, a faith that we hold going back to Jesus, back to his spiritual ancestors, back to those who walked the earth and found holy ground. And what we do is often based on ancient patterns—worship and music; loving service to the poor, the hurting, the lonely; working for justice and peace; lively, fearless education and formation of minds and souls. And that faith is also completely contemporary, engaged in the culture and the needs of the moment…
Whether you are looking for an in-person worship experience or an online experience, All Saints’ can accommodate you. If you are not ready to jump into worship within community in person or if you want to experience our worship anonymously? All Saints’ is here for you!

Adventures From Your Couch
We are compiling a list of free on-line activities and adventures for all ages. The list includes secular as well as religious activities. The list is ever changing so check back often to see what is new. This list is by no-means complete. Most resources have been sourced from social media and other online locations. When we are not able to be together physically, it is important that we continue to be connected with one another. These activities can help to keep our minds from over thinking current events. We hope this list will help you.
