All Saints Church — Bay Head


All Saints Church Welcomes You!

Welcome to All Saints Church located on the beautiful Jersey Shore. Winter and early Spring at the Shore have their own special charm.

Yes, there can be some chilly days and even some snow; however, as the old saying goes “A day at the beach…”, well, you get it. There’s always something marvelous about that spot in New Jersey where the ocean meets the land. Bay Head is clearly a year round place to be.

LentAt All Saints Episcopal Church, we are moving on to the forty-day season of Lent. Over the course of this important time in the lives of those who follow Jesus as their Savior, we’ll explore the importance of Jesus being baptized by his cousin John, as well as the many experiences over the weeks that follow, including the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, Jesus’ love for us, the prodigal son, and the raising of Lazarus from the dead.

During the Lenten season, we will be using a five-session study entitled ‘Practicing the Way of Love’ featuring several members of the congregation facilitating the various discussions. This program will begin Wednesday, March 13, at 7:30 pm. Each session will conclude with the brief service of Compline at 9:00 pm. More information—entitled A JOURNEY THROUGH LENT TO EASTER—about preparing for Easter appears elsewhere on our website. The regular, Wednesday sessions of Benedictine Way will begin again on May 1.

EasterOur hope is that the Lenten experience at All Saints will help us to enrich our celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus on Easter Day—Sunday, April 21. This year, while both of our Easter Day services will include wonderful music with our highly accomplished choir like previous years, the times are slightly different: 8:30 am & 10:30 am. And, of course, we will have additional instrumentation to further enhance the joy of Easter.

Throughout the year, our regular services on Sunday morning include the celebration of the Holy Eucharist at 8:00 am & 10:15 am. These services are regular, standard fare in the Episcopal Church: Rite One at eight without music and Rite Two with music at ten fifteen.

This year marks the 130th year that All Saints Church has been the beacon of the Episcopal Church in Bay Head! We invite each and every one visiting this site located in cyberspace to also stop by in person. The entire Jersey Shore is clearly a spectacular destination any time of year and you’ll find plenty to do and see while here. We hope one of those experiences will be to stop by All Saints Church for some spiritual renewal and reflection.

There is no ‘dress code’ at All Saints. People find the comfort that suites them best from casual and informal to more dressy. So, drop by.

Even in the colder weather, a warm welcome awaits you.

Hoping to see you soon! .

Faithfully,
Robert
