All Saints Church news
All Saints Church is situated in the picturesque Parque Taoro, a beautiful area within the popular tourist resort of Puerto de la Cruz. The church grounds not only house the church itself but the Parsonage and outbuildings all within a garden setting. Coffee or something stronger (Sundays) is served after the Services in the church grounds.
The church is well worth a visit as it is over a hundred and twenty five years old and houses many historical features.
The Services are Eucha-ristic and are held on a weekly basis as follows:

All Saints Church is very sad to announce the death of one of our longest church mem-bers and well known through-out Puerto de la Cruz . Jean Fountain Wilson died on Thursday January 11th peace-fully in her sleep .Jean worked tirelessly for many many years at All Saints , she gave 100% to the church she loved so much. Jean also was a Church-warden for many years and her efficiency and organization skills were second to none , Jean organised some fabulous socials in her time and in latter years, even though she visited her beloved Ro every after-noon in hospital after his stroke, she still took on the task of liasing with people for Car Boot pitches . Jean was a deeply dedicated Christian who served our church with love ,devotion and commit-ment for many years and made a huge contribution to our church on every level in everything she did .Jean was also involved with other organisations on Tenerife and I am sure after reading some of their tributes to her, her presence will be missed there as well. Jean may you now know peace in the closer presence of our Lord whom you so faithfully served. Dear Jean, Rest in Peace.
As All Saints Church is currently in an interregnum our locum Priest is the Very Reverend Michael Higgins who is here with his wife Margaret until March 5th. Reverend Michael can be reached at the Parsonage on 922384038
