Stewardship

Our vision for All Hallows is to be a compassionate community, seeking to make Christ known in the world, confident in our discipleship and growing in creative ways. We seek to be a loving, energised, fruitful and growing community - growing spiritually in our love for God and love for others, and growing in compassion and numbers.

We are committed to following Christ’s way of loving service to others, of being a beacon of light and hope in the world, of speaking the word of God, teaching the Christian faith and deepening our own faith, open to learn from God and from others. We celebrate that we are a diverse community and will find ways to celebrate that diversity to make All Hallows a place of welcome, nurture and safety for all.

There has been a church on the site of All Hallows for over 1,300 years - our Grade 1 listed building is an integral part of the City of London, playing an important part in the lives of countless people over the years. We cherish our rich history and are inspired by it, and will seek to preserve our church for future generations, both as a place of worship and a focus for the local community. We will make All Hallows a place of encounter with God for all who visit - a church where the glory of God shines through its people, its worship and prayer, its loving service, its actions and words, its study of scripture, its care for God’s creation, its history and beautiful building, its commitment to justice in all its forms.

Contrary to popular belief, churches do not receive funding from government or central church funds, so we have to raise money to run and maintain our two listed buildings, pay staff salaries and cover all our own mission and ministry costs. We also pay a Common Fund contribution to the Diocese, which pays for clergy salaries, housing, pensions, training, diocesan costs and supporting mission in deprived areas. In order for our mission to become a reality we need the support of our members and the wider community to meet these commitments. Our Stewardship campaign is an opportunity for us to give thanks for God's many gifts to us and reflect prayerfully on how we, in turn, are called to respond.
