Welcome to All Saints
Everyone is welcome at All Saints' Church whatever their tradition or background.
You'll find us in the centre of Grayswood, a pretty Surrey village. Not just geographically in the centre but the social heart of this small community, part of the lives of the people of Grayswood since 1902.
Whether you want to pray, give thanks or find hope in times of despair, our beautiful Grade II listed church is currently open for you on Wednesday mornings.
Church open for private prayer
Wednesdays from 10am - 12 noon
Light a candle, place a prayer on the prayer tree or rest a while …
Please follow the guidance in church to keep yourself and others safe.

Sunday Sermons from the Diocese
You can find Sunday Sermons from Bishop Andrew and Bishop Jo here:
Every tear will be wiped away
"100,000 isn’t just an abstract figure - each number is a person: someone we loved and someone who loved us."
"Death doesn’t have the last word. In God’s kingdom, every tear will be wiped away."
The Archbishops of Canterbury and York
A prayer for those who mourn
as we remember before you the thousands who have died,
surround us and all who mourn with your strong compassion.
Be gentle with us in our grief,
protect us from despair,
and give us grace to persevere
and face the future with hope
in Jesus Christ our risen Lord.
In an open letter, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York are calling the nation to pause, reflect, and remember the more than 100,000 people across the UK who have died after contracting Covid-19, and all those who know and love them.
They also urge people to support each other both by following the guidelines to limit the spread of the virus and in practical ways, reaching out in care and kindness.
You can read the full letter here: Letter to the Nation
Call to Prayer for the Nation
The Archbishops have called everyone to pray for the nation at 6pm everyday from 1st February: https://www.churchofengland.org/resources/call-prayer-nation

All Services Online
Following the sharp rise in virus cases both nationally and locally, the PCC has taken the decision to suspend gathered worship services and move to Zoom services only from this Sunday (3rd January).
There will therefore be no 8am services, and the 10am services will be on Zoom.
This decision has been made to protect all those in our church congregation and those who support the services each week.
Please continue to pray for all those who are working to overcome this virus, those who are suffering from its effects and those for whom a tightening of restrictions will cause particular distress.
Ways of giving ...
All Saints church, like most churches in the UK, is almost entirely funded by voluntary giving from our church members.
We are truly grateful to the many people who enable the church to flourish through regular planned giving: this is usually done by a monthly standing order.
During these difficult times however, we are, like many charities seeing a drop in our regular giving.
If you feel that you are able to make a donation to All Saints during this time then we would be most grateful.
Are you struggling with finances? In these difficult times you may find yourself struggling with finances. If this is the case then please do get in touch as we may be able to help you. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07769 856343 which will be treated in strictest confidence. We are here to help so please don't suffer in silence.
Friends of All Saints Grayswood
The Friends of All Saints Grayswood is a registered charity that exists to raise funds for the repair, maintenance and improvement of the structure and fabric of the church so that it can be preserved for the future and continue to play a vital part in the life of the village. Looking after a Grade II listed building is costly and in addition to on-going repairs, other improvements are required to maintain the church for worship and for the community. Many people in the area are not regular churchgoers, but want the church to be there for weddings, baptisms and funerals, and also because it is a beautiful building, which forms a central point in the village. There are also those from other parts of the world with past or present links who wish to be involved. We urge all who care about All Saints Church to ensure that it continues to thrive. Our aim, therefore, is to involve the residents of Grayswood and the wider community in the care of this building and its surrounding churchyard.
