Professional mural artist, Aime Rix from Marsh Farm has led the project,  with enthusiastic and creative support from members of the wider community. 

The team have produced four striking panels which will be erected on the wall behind the raised beds in our community garden.

Christenings

We would be delighted to talk to you about Christening (which is also called baptism),  for your baby, your older child or even for yourself.

Baptism is a first step along a journey of faith.  In baptism we welcome a new member into the church of God.

Follow this link to find more information:

We are very happy to hold a christening as part of our main church service on a Sunday, or as a private service.

Marriage

How do you organise your wedding ceremony in All Saints Church?

Come and talk to us. Visit a service at the church in Shaftesbury Road, or contact us on:

01582 720129

vicar(at)allsaintsluton.org. [Substituting @ for (at)]

You can also find lots of help on this Church of England website:

All Saints can seat up to 400 guests. Music sounds wonderful in the church: we have ample room for your musicians too.

There is a spacious hall available for your reception.

Best of all, you will start your married life in God’s loving hands!

End of life care and funerals

We are here to help when you need it most. You don’t have to do this alone.

End of life care from a church is more than just providing a funeral.  We will support you, visit you and listen to you, as you - or your loved one - are approaching the end of life.

We can offer our presence, prayer, Home Communion and anointing for those near death.

When you are planning a funeral, we will visit, help you understand what to expect, and help you to plan a service that will feel personal, and will reflect the distinctive life and personality of your loved one. We can help you choose hymns, music and readings, and can help you write a fitting eulogy.

A funeral service might be a very private short service at the crematorium, or a memorial service for 400 with a horse drawn hearse and a burial afterwards. We will do our best to accommodate your needs.

Afterwards we go on praying and caring, and will continue to visit if you find it helpful.

Please contact us now to discuss what you need.

Further information is available here:

Mothers' Union

We meet at All Saints Vestry on the first Wednesday of the month for a short service and a talk from a visiting speaker.

We are very active in fundraising and are strong supporters of the inmates at Yarlswood detention centre at Bedford.

New members are always welcome.

The gallery shows some of us and guests on our boat trip in June.

The Mothers’ Union is an international Christian charity with members worldwide. It works with people of all faiths and none to build up communities, strengthen families and advocate for change.

At All Saints and St Peters, we are proud of our flourishing branch of the Mothers’ Union.
