Message from Bob Butler-Smith - Former Rector


The continuing ethos of the church is a living answer to Christ's question to Peter - "Do you love me?"

The answer from 1233 to the present time is "Lord, you know that we love you."

Stand before the East window of All Saints' and say so - personally.
