Seven Saxon Kings

We launched an exciting embroidery project in 2022; to find out more information about the project, book of names and how you and your family can be part of keeping this heritage alive for generations to come click here.

Saxon Kings Update – Edward the Elder, first in the series, is now in production in embroiderer Jacky’s Bath studio. We need to raise the money for framing him – could you help by hosting a coffee morning for your friends and neighbours?  Either at home, or by arrangement in the Church café, and Leo or Sandy could bring along the embroidered samples for viewing. Contact Sandy at [email protected]

All Saints is the historic parish church of Kingston, whose bounds stretched at one time from Richmond to Molesey.

It is a place of significant heritage. The first King of England – Athelstan in 925AD – was crowned here making this, arguably, the place where England began.

The church has been at the centre of Kingston life for centuries and serving the community in a variety of different ways is a top priority for us.

We have a liberal outlook and intend that our services are inclusive and graceful, without being unduly formal. Music plays an important part in our life, supporting our worship and helping us to pray.

You are very welcome to join us or make a visit.
