Service of New Ministry with Rev. Bill Bradbury Oct. 13 (photo: S. Grillo)
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 outreach we open ourselves to God and our neighbor.
Our Sunday worship services during the summer are at 8:00 AM in the chapel and 9:30 AM in the main church. There is a staffed nursery at the 9:30 AM service. There is no Church School in the summer, until the Mystery Club begins in August. Wednesday worship is at noon in the chapel. 10 Billerica Rd. Chelmsford Center. Whoever you are, wherever you are on your journey of faith: we invite you to join us!
As we begin to plan our schedules for the fall, I urge you to consider joining a choir at All Saints’.
We have two youth choirs, a parish choir, and a handbell choir. Our youngest choir, the Disco Penguins, is for children who can read words (usually K/1) through grade 4 or 5. The Penguins meet on Thursdays, from 6-7pm in the Choir Room. The B# Choir is for unchanged voices, and welcomes graduating Penguins and all others through grade 12. This group meets on Thursdays from 6:30-7:30pm in the Choir Room, and includes a half hour overlap with the Disco Penguins. Each group sings separately, as well as preparing jointly for the annual Three Choirs Festival which will be on May 5, 2019 at All Saints’. Both the Disco Penguins and the B# choirs will begin rehearsals on September 13.
Our Handbell Choir, under the dedicated volunteer Debbie Psilopoulos, meets Thursdays from 6:30-7:30pm. The ability to read music is a plus for this adult group, but is not mandatory. This group rehearses in the sanctuary, beginning September 13.
The Parish Choir meets Thursdays from 7:45-9:15pm, beginning September 6. If you enjoy singing, and are interested in becoming further involved in the life at All Saints’, we would love to have you. We welcome all voice parts, but are especially in need of men.
Please speak to any current choir member, to Debbie P, or myself if you would like to know more.

Our Thrift Shop is 50 years young, and needs some help to stay strong. This volunteer run shop is open Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 10a.m. – 3p.m., and most volunteers work one 2.5 hour shift/month. We have several shifts in need of coverage and are hoping that you will join this small, but mighty group.
We will open for early take in of fall clothes on Wednesday and Thursday, August 29 and 30 from 11am – 2pm, and for regular hours on Wednesday, September 5.

You’ve seen the old bumper sticker that reads, “When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.” (Google tells me that is attributed to Jimi Hendrix, of all people!) Of course, what we usually don’t say, but are thinking, is this quote should be changed slightly to read: “When the power of love overcomes the love of power in those horrible people over there, the world will know peace.” Continue reading →
