"I felt drawn to All Saints'. On the first day I attended, Paul [one of the Co-Rectors] greeted the congregation with a statement about his love for Jesus and described waking up early to spend some quiet time with Him. I was immediately touched by Paul's sincere faith and his open sharing of his personal religious experiences. I felt embraced and held by the quiet beauty of the church. I left All Saints' that morning feeling a sense of excitement. I knew I had discovered a church where real spiritual support is present. I sensed a dynamic quality at All Saints' - interesting, innovative programs in place with the openness for others in the future. I felt hopeful that I had found a church where I could settle in."
"I attended a Godly Play Core training here. I came to the workshop to learn more about storytelling and to seek answers to a few questions I had about Godly Play. I came away with much, much more than I expected. I found myself wondering about profound spiritual questions a I heard stories being told. I felt awestruck to be with a group of people who took the spiritual and religious formation of children so seriously. I was incredibly excited to know I would be a storyteller in the fall. Part of my excitement was relishing the challenge of sharing Godly Play with the children of All Saints'. Throughout my life, God has used children around me to draw me closer to Him. As a storyteller, I can also help the children of All Saints' move forward in their own journeys of faith."
"My husband and I arrived in Massachusets on Friday, October 27th. On Saturday the 28th, we drove around the area where we were living to get our bearings, and one of the things I was looking for was a church. We drove on Common Street in Belmont and sped past a church with a red door and a sign that read All Saints'. I remember thinking red doors usually mean Episcopal churches and All Saints' is a very inclusive name; I decided to attend the service the next morning and see if I liked it. Well, since then, other than when I've been out of town I've come back every Sunday to All Saints' because I knew it was my new church home after just one visit."

Stories from our Community
"What I enjoy most about All Saints' is the connection with the other members of our congregation - the feeling of care and support from them. Coming a close second is the worship service. It takes coming into God's presence seriously."
