What comes first

Belonging or believing?

It doesn't seem unreasonable to assume that the people who come into church week by week must all be believers, having at the very least a certain belief in God.

Yet, actually, people come to the church for many different reasons, some of them nothing to do with believing or with God;and few of those people simply woke up one morning with an instant sense of belief.

For most of us, belief develops out of a belonging; belonging to a family or a community where there is faith; faith which has been caught and taught and developed by example, by observation, by hearing, by doubting, by questioning.

So whatever your reason, whatever you seek, whatever your belief (or not) because God loves you, just as you are, we warmly invite you to experience belonging at All Saints
