Who We Are
All Saints’ Church is a community of people living in Chelmsford, Greater Lowell and beyond who gather to worship God. We cherish the Episcopal tradition. We provide opportunities for members to discover, share and use their gifts, gratefully acknowledging God as the source of all we have. Through Jesus Christ and in unity with the Holy Spirit, we seek renewal and growth as people of faith and as a Christian community as we worship God our Creator, are formed in our faith, and join God in God’s mission of reconciling love, serving both those in this place and those in the world outside our walls.
Statement of Inclusion
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 and to serve Christ in all persons, …strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.”
