These are the main organisations we support by regular giving. See below for more links.
Blackpool Schools and Youth Work

The Leprosy Mission
The Leprosy Mission are a global Christian organisation leading the fight against leprosy.
The Leprosy Mission’s Global Fellowship works in 28 countries.
Their focus is on ten countries in Africa and Asia - Bangladesh, Ethiopia, India, Mozambique, Myanmar (Burma), Nepal, Niger, Nigeria, Sri Lanka and Sudan. These places have high rates of leprosy or lack the services or opportunities needed by people affected.
Mission Aviation Fellowship
MAF believe nothing should stop people from receiving the love of God and the essentials of life – no matter how remote they are. Their vision is to see 'isolated people physically and spiritually transformed in Christ's name.' They use aviation and technology, because in many places those are the only ways to reach isolated people in need.
A member of our church works for Operation Mobilisation. OM works in over 110 countries around the world to bring the Good News of Jesus to people who may never have heard about Him before.
All Saints Christmas Fair
The Christmas Fair is an annual community event where we support either 2 or 3 local charities by raising both awareness and money all of which is donated to the chosen charities.There are many stalls, a Christmas Quiz and even a visit from Father Christmas. It takes a year to organise and there are lots of jobs to do, so if you would like to get involved contact Jacqui via the office.
