Mission and Values
All Saints’ is both a church community where we worship God and care for each other and a downtown center that serves the needs of our community.
We are the northernmost parish in the Episcopal Diocese of El Camino Real, which includes all of Silicon Valley and stretches south along the coast to Arroyo Grande.
At Sunday worship services, our church-in-the-round ensures that we see each others’ faces and that we do so across and around the Lord’s table. The Eucharist constantly informs and shapes our identity.
Who We Are
Our purpose is to put Christ’s love into positive action.
We believe in these values; with God’s help we aspire to live them out:
Eucharistic worship in the round engages us and renews us through sacred liturgy, vibrant music, joyous fellowship and corporate prayer.
Spiritual Life and Intimacy with God
Guided by the Holy Spirit, we seek to discover Christ in ourselves and each other through worship, discussion, education, prayer, stillness and contemplation, mutual caring and support, and outreach.
Our Baptismal Covenant calls us to seek Christ and serve Christ in all people. We live out that Covenant through a passion for serving the underserved. We foster social outreach ministries in our local community and actively minister to the hungry and homeless.
Partnership in Ministry
We listen to God, to each other, and to our community as a whole;
We value collegiality in decision-making.
Inclusion and Friendship
We value differences; this provides us with challenges and opportunities for learning. We befriend each other, and we befriend the stranger in our midst, seeking Christ in all. Hospitality and fun are integral to our life together as a parish family.
