All Saints Anglican Church Algarve Welcomes a new era and a new Name!
Like everyone else in our community the last 2 years have taught All Saints Anglican Church a great deal. It has been a season for “new beginnings” and “firsts”.
Despite the Covid restrictions they learnt how to continue to worship weekly by the magic that is the Zoom Platform. Throughout this time the Congregation flourished and even grew, and entered the post pandemic age stronger, fitter and more focused on their vision for spreading the good news of Christ.
When the restrictions for meeting together were lifted All Saints were invited by the Junta de Freguesia in Almancil to use the beautiful Building next to the lake in the Jardim das Comunidades for their worship. A building which has now become” The Church in the Park “
All Saints has been further blessed with new members joining the congregation and together with a number enlightened and enthusiastic Locum Ministers have introduced new ideas, new ways to worship, new ideas of ways to spread the Gospel.
In a bold move, and striving towards a strong and united future the Church has announced their determination to continue in this new forward movement, and henceforth the Church will now be known as Christ The King Anglican Church
A strong statement of Faith for the Congregation which simply put says Christ above everything The new name is accompanied with new, modern, upscale brand image.
Jenny Wills, Chairperson for the Church Council, says “We have talked about a fresh image and a new name for the church for quite a while, and with prayer and discernment we believe that God has determined that now is the right time. We look forward to a future as Christ The King Anglican Church and invite everyone to join us at “The Church in the Park” to experience our worship and fellowship”
