All Saints Church News
All Saints’ Church is a little piece of England tucked away in Parque Taoro, Puerto de la Cruz. The church itself is a typical example of British early English Gothic Revival style, with pairs of lancet windows to the side aisles.
The sanctuary has a floor of patterned clay tiles and to the south on the wall is a very large reproduction of ” The Light of the World” by Holman Hunt which was given to the church as a memorial in the 1930s. The church also features stained glass windows. The most remarkable is the west window with its vibrant colour depicting repesentative figures of prophet, apostle, arch-bishop and martyr all encompassed by the words of the Te Deum. All Saints Church is well worth a visi. It is usually open Tuesday, Wednesday for a Service of Holy Communion at 10am and Thursday morning, also of course on Sundays for the two Services. 9.30am Tradional Service of Holy Communion using the Book of Common Prayer and our Sung Eucharist Service at 11am.
During June we are very grateful to Reverends Bob and Judie Horrocks from Fuerteventura who are coming to take our Services. They will be with us from June 3rd to June 12th after which sees the return of Canon MIchael Rees from June 16th to the end of July. On Wednesday June 7th we are very privileged to have the Archdeacon of Gibraltar, Reverend Canon Geoff Johnston to lead our 10am Service of Holy Communion.
