We are a welcoming community that seeks to follow Jesus Christ with all that we are and all that we have. Through worship, fellowship, education, and mission we open ourselves to God and our neighbor.
All Saints’ Church in Chelmsford is happy to announce that our 2017-2018 Church School Registration is open- we invite all families who are looking for a church home to visit us and learn more about our programs. We offer classes for children from pre-K to 10th grade, and a Youth Group for 7th-12th graders.
We seek to serve Christ in all people by loving our neighbors as ourselves. For our children, this means meeting each child’s needs and fostering a sense of belonging through our thoughtful community. Our Church School staff are CORI checked and trained in Safe Church procedures. We are committed to providing a safe and caring environment for all children. We offer wonder-based programming for our youngest students, with creative and beautiful curriculum and materials. For our older students, we equip them with the foundations of the Episcopal Church and walk with them in their journey of faith.
All Saints’ Episcopal Church welcomes all people who seek the love of God without regard to ability, age, color, economic circumstance, ethnic background, family configuration, gender, nationality, or sexual orientation. We promise to “seek to serve Christ in all persons, …strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.”

Isaiah 55:10-13, Psalm 65: (1-8), 9-14, Romans 8:1-11, Matthew 13:1-9,18-23
Imagine your favorite beach….Matthew says Jesus is sitting on the beach at the Sea of Galilee. It’s an arresting image: Jesus, doing the thing we like to do, sitting in front of a body of water and just staring off into the distance. As we’ve all experienced, this opens up the soul and calms the spirit. Neuroscience has found that staring off into empty space like this, puts the mind into alpha waves which produces that calm, peaceful sensation we all crave and need after a day of living in a mind worn out by the beta waves produced by a busy, stressful life. In other words, Jesus is centering himself in the presence of the Father after a long week of teaching, healing, and confrontation. Jesus needs a day at the beach as much as we do! Continue reading

This video was taken by a local amateur videographer named Damon L. Arcangelo who visited All Saints’. Enjoy.
As an amateur photographer, I think he captured an “essence” of All Saints’ that goes back generations, and has a great eye for some of the stunning views in our church. Absolutely beautiful. See if you agree…
Thank you Damon!
