Thursday coffee & chat by Zoom will be taking a break from now on. It’s been a great way of keeping in touch, especially during the lockdown.

Welcome to our website. Whether you’re a regular visitor or member of our church, or someone from the other side of the world, I am glad that you have expressed an interest in All Saints’. We are the parish church for the beautiful seaside town of Walton-on-the-Naze in North Essex. We exist to know God’s love and to show God’s love in our community. God’s love is made known to the world in Jesus Christ, and so it is in His name that we welcome you.
The parish church is open every day of the year. It stands in the heart of the High Street, its tower overlooking the town we serve. Whenever the bell is rung, public prayer is offered: each day of the week, morning and evening. I pray that the Lord would bless you richly as you explore these pages. Do come and see us when you can!
