Welcome to the website of All Saints', Blackheath

Welcome to the website of All Saints', Blackheath, one of the five Church of England parish churches serving Blackheath and a member of the Churches Together in Blackheath. It offers traditional catholic worship, with a long-standing fine choral tradition and an emphasis on liturgy. Its clergy and lay staff work closely with All Saints' C of E Primary School.

Visitors are always welcome to join us at our services and there are opportunities for regular members of the church to explore their faith and to deepen their knowledge. See our weekly Pewsheet to download up-to-date information on forthcoming services and events.

A safe church. Blackheath All Saints’ is committed to promoting a safer environment and culture for all. The Parochial Church Council (PCC) has adopted the Diocesan Safeguarding Policy.

History: As part of the Church of England the parish church was built in 1857/8 and is now within the Diocese of Southwark. The cathedral is on Bankside west of London Bridge.

The Church of England welcomes all the baptised who are communicant members of their own churches to make their communion if they wish. Others, and all who are not Christian, are welcome to attend but are asked to refrain from receiving the sacraments. Regular training is offered for those seeking to become Christian and to profess their faith at Baptism. There are prayer and bible study groups as well as children's church. Our regular worship follows the traditional style of the Church of England. Morning and Evening Prayer are said daily according to the 1662 Book of Common Prayer and the Parish Mass on Sundays is a sung communion service with a full robed choir.

Music continues to form a major part of our worshipping life (to hear former organist Michael Bonaventure playing, click here) and the English composer Alfred Cellier (1844-1891), who conducted many premieres of G&S operettas, was the first Director of Music and Organist, from 1862. His own opera Dorothy was the longest running opera in the 19th century and he later composed operas with Gilbert.

All those seeking to arrange baptisms or funerals or to be married here should first contact the Vicar, Father Nicholas Cranfield FSA, 10 Duke Humphrey Road, Blackheath SE3 0TY. You can check that this is your parish church at http://www.achurchnearyou.com

The Church supports Parent & Baby and Toddler Groups, Advent and Lent Study Groups and Young People's Groups, Sunday School, a robed choir and a Crèche. It is a member of Churches together in Blackheath.

Worship

There are daily masses (Mondays and Thursdays at 8am; Tuesdays at 7.30pm, Wednesdays at 10am, Fridays and Saturdays at 9am) and morning prayer and evening prayer are said according to the Book of Common Prayer daily (except Saturday evening) at 8.30am and 5.00pm. Additional services are as advertised on the church notice boards and on the website.

On Sunday Holy Communion is at 8am, the Parish Mass at 10.30am and Evening Prayer at 6.30pm. Additional masses are celebrated on major feasts of the church's year. The church porch is kept open daily and affords a space for quiet prayer.

There are five Anglican churches that cover SE3 and Blackheath; before enquiring about arrangements for baptism, marriage or a funeral please ensure that this is your parish church.
