All Saints’ Memorial Church (“The Stone Church”), is located in the Highlands of Navesink, a section of Middletown Township, New Jersey. We are a parish located in the Diocese of New Jersey, in The Episcopal Church, and a member of the world wide Anglican Communion.
Founded in 1864 through the efforts of the Milnor and Stephens families, our parish community cherishes relationship with God, and with one another, seeking to grow ever closer to Christ. Please explore our website for more information on our ministries, events, and historic campus. We invite you to visit us any Sunday or Wednesday morning for worship, to attend one of our Stone Church Players productions, attend an event, or just enjoy the beauty of our grounds.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
Because of the spread of COVID 19, the most recent coronavirus to spread across the world and reaching pandemic levels, All Saints' Memorial Church campus will likely be closed throughout June, though if this timeline changes we will post that here. The Diocese is working on a reopening plan, after which the parish must take the necessary time and precautions to implement. This decision to close was made by Bishop Stokes on April 15th. See the Bishop's Pastoral Statement here:
This means that all worship, education, committee meetings and community events, including our 12 step meetings, are suspended until the buildings reopen. We realize the disruption this causes, and we are sorry; however, the church is duty bound by love to do our part to stop the potential spread of the pandemic for the sake of those who would be most affected by it.
Mother Debbie is offering Morning Prayer at 10:15 am on Sundays on Facebook Live, and Healing service prayers on Wednesday at 10 am on Facebook Live. Compline is offered on Tuesday and Thursdays at 9 pm. Please visit our page for service times for Holy Week service information. You can link to All Saints' Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/allsaintschurchnavesink/ . The parish has the capability for video conferencing for meetings and will utilize that technology. We will regularly update our Facebook page as well as our website.
The office will be open for limited hours to handle voice mails, email and mail. Please contact Mother Debbie for any pastoral concerns or emergencies by phone or email.
Lastly, remember that no matter what, God calls us to live our lives out of a place of love, and not fear. We belong to Christ, and we belong to one another. May we make decisions and act in this time of uncertainty as Christ would have us do, knowing that come what may, God is with us, always.

ONLINE GIVING NOW OPEN!
One on-line option we have up and running is a text-to-give system, which is handled through our new Church membership data base system, called Breeze. Breeze is a cloud based system through which ministry leaders can manage communications, where we can take event registrations, and process on-line giving, among other things. Here is how to go about it:
· Text GIVE to 732-400-5774
· If this is your first time, it will direct you to a screen to setup a giving method—either via credit card or using ACH (from your bank account). Whatever method you pick will be the method Text-to-give continues to use for subsequent donations.
· Enter the information and pick your amount.
· For future donations, text GIVE to the same number, answer the prompt for the amount, and the donation will be processed.
Rather do this from your computer? Go to: https://allsaintsnavesink.breezechms.com/give/online
It will ask you for the same information, but you can change your payment method each time. If it asks you to pick a fund, please pick the GENERAL FUND.
