Nestled in the midst of the Monadnock region, All Saints' Episcopal Church is a spiritual home for all who are seeking a welcoming, soulful, integrated and diverse Christian community. We are connected by our belief that the saving love of Christ Jesus calls us to be a people of hope.
We come as we are, young and old, dressed as we like, some cradle Episcopalians, others newcomers, some from different traditions or no tradition, as families, as partnered, as individuals, believers, searchers, and skeptics alike. All are welcome.
On Sunday's we worship by incorporating present realities and God's dream for us through the timeless tradition of the Book of Common Prayer and the Episcopal Hymnal in our services of Rite I and Rite II. Children are always in our midst, either in Sunday School, as acolytes, in the choir, or serving as Eucharistic ministers. Trusting in the gift of shared insights about scripture, we can also worship in our service of Rite Now at Reynolds Hall by circling around a free standing altar and by using traditional and contemporary prayers and hymns. In all ways at All Saints', we believe worship is our holy conversation with God.
We embrace our ever-challenging call to act on our baptismal identity to serve each other, to serve those in our neighborhoods and those in the world by contributing to justice, peace, education, and relief. We are formed by God's promise to us that we can make a difference in our world.
God is madly in love with us; and indeed we have been given the blessed assurance that there is a splendor burning in the heart of all things. Alleluia!
The Rev. Jamie L. Hamilton, Rector
Services at 8am: Rite I, and 10am: Rite II and Rite Now

New Book Study- The Fragrance of Faith
As many of you know, Jamie offered a book discussion group this winter which focused on Richard Rohr’s book, Yes, And…
The next book will be The Fragrance of Faith, written by Jamal Rahman (can order through Toadstool or Amazon).
We will be meeting on the following Wednesdays from 7:30-8:30 pm:
April 20th: Dedication- pp.28
April 27th: pp. 29- 57
May 4th: pp. 58-88
May 25th: pp. 89-120
June 1st: pp. 121-148
All are welcome to join, whether you can make all the meetings or read all of the book (though it’s fairly short).
There are many things to appreciate about The Fragrance of Faith. It gives us a wonderful introduction to Islam, yet its strength is in exploring elements of the spiritual journey that we all can connect with. The writing is accessible without compromising the profundity of the insights.
