Assistance to Community Agencies

Project Backpack

Starting in July through September of each year, church attendees are encourage to contribute change (or other donations) to help purchase backpacks and educational materials for young students who are not able to afford them. We have contributed hundreds of backpacks to elementary and middle school students over the years.

St. Mark's Center for Community Renewal

 The St. Mark’s Center for Community Renewal in Keansburg provides a full hot meal to its guests daily, and All Saints’ contributes monthly to the meals program. In addition, we collect coats, gloves, hats, scarves, socks during the winter months and bring them to St. Mark’s for distribution for those in need.

Ministries

Men’s Group

The Men’s group gathers at the Rectory on the second Saturday of the month at 8:15 a.m. for Prayer, Bible study and a full breakfast! All men and young men welcome. The Men’s group also assists from time to time with parish clean ups, setting up for events, and also coordinates our Winter Coat/Clothing drive.  

Altar Guild

This quiet but valued ministry is centered on worship. Members set up the church for Sunday and special services, arrange flowers, polish vessels, and take care of our church linens. We work in rotating teams and training is available. 

Fellowship & Hospitality

  

Love to throw a party? Host a post-service coffee hour, or help out with one of our celebratory meals or events.

All Saints' ECW - Episcopal Church Women

 On the second Wednesday of every month, from September through June, the ECW gathers at 12:30pm in the Parish House for prayer, fellowship and lunch. We also serve as docents for ‘Weekend in Old Monmouth’ historic tours.  We raise funds by selling Blessed Blend Coffee, and, in the winter months, packages of Hot Chocolate; funds raised are used to benefit the parish ministries.  

The Stone Church Players

 Our community theater troupe performs three to four times per year, offering everything from musicals to dramas to radio plays in our historic church building. Both parishioners and community members are welcome to audition, or serve behind the scenes for setup, publicity or ticket sale—or just enjoy the show! For more information, visit their website: www.stonechurchplayers.org 

Music Ministry

 The All Saints’ Choir, under the direction of Organist and Choir Director John Van Sant, plays a central role in the life of the church, and leads the Choral Holy Eucharist at 10 AM on Sundays. Our choir is an energetic, dedicated, and faithful group, and we continue to enjoy the mission of singing and leading our worship together in the Anglican choral tradition New members at any experience level are welcome.  

Sunday School

 Sunday School meets most Sundays from September through June in our Parish Hall. Classes begin again on September 15th, and are held on the 1st, 3rd & 4th Sundays. Class runs from 9:45 to 10:30 am at which time children and youth rejoin their families in church. Our program offers the children a deep invitation to hear God’s word through stories from both the Old and New Testament. The children benefit from traditional Sunday school lessons as well as outreach and service opportunities. Lessons are age-appropriate and made applicable to their own lives while we bring them closer in relationship to Christ. 

Adult Formation

  

Even as adults, we continue to grow and change in our relationship with God. At All Saints’, we believe it is important to offer a variety of ways for people to explore faith issues and learn more about Scripture, the Church, and how to deepen our relationship with Christ.


Offerings vary from Scripture study, Book discussions, meditation, and Inquirer’s classes, depending on the liturgical season and parish schedule. 

Youth Group

  Group activities are scheduled every 4-6 weeks and are generally geared to ages 9-16, though some activities are appropriate for all ages. Over the last few years we have enjoyed ice skating, numerous baking projects for friends of All Saints, afternoons together at the beach, and bowling. We also are engaged in Outreach, helping with Project Backpack, and have raised funds for global outreach. All are welcome!
