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 in common with The Church of England.
History. All Saints has been central to the life of Blackheath Village for over 160 years. 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 next to London Bridge.
Music has always formed a major part of our worshipping life 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. See the Music page and calendar for details of our frequent performances and recitals.
Church life. 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.
Giving & Stewardship. We depend on the generosity of our congregation and wider benefactors to carry out All Saints' work and maintain the church's fabric. We are grateful for all donations, either individual gifts or regular giving. Please visit the Giving & Stewardship to learn how you can support our work and how Gift Aid can make your contributions go further.
Annual Parish Charity. Every year All Saints' actively supports a different charity, with many in the congregation participating in a wide range of fund raising activities including sponsored walks, runs and marathons; pub quizzes and wine tastings. Our current parish charity 2019-2020 is Dimbleby Cancer Care. This is now coming to an end and we have exceeded our target of £10,000. Well done to all.
