Who we are

All Saints is situated in the centre of Middlesbrough, a large industrial town in the Tees Valley area in the Archdeaconry of Cleveland.

Grounded in the Catholic faith, All Saints offers a daily mass, sometimes twice daily, and the divine office is recited every morning and evening. All Saints is perhaps most well known for its catholic mould, and we continue to faithfully minister to the residents and population of Middlesbrough through the sacraments, and thus encouraging one another to worship God in a beautiful and well-preserved church.

The Church is open to all, welcomes all, and has an exiting, varied, and challenging ministry rooted in the local community.

All Saints has long stood in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England. It maintains that position in its totality. The Parish has passed resolutions A, B & C.

History of All Saints Church Middlesbrough

All Saints, Middlesbrough, was a Church of England parish which arose from the late 19th century expansion of this northern industrial boom town. It embraced some of Middlesbrough’s grimmest slums but also much of its commercial heartland. The first vicar, Father Alberic Bertie commissioned the church building a characteristically Gothic Revival design by the great G. E. Street. Bertie stood firmly in the doctrinal tradition of the Oxford Movement but only some time after John Burn became vicar in 1884 was full Anglo-Catholic sacramental practice introduced. The region’s most celebrated Anglican priest, Father Burn became controversial both for his ritualis and All Saints’ campaigns against poverty and injustice. Tensions between the church and the Diocese of York over ritual practices outlasted Father Burns’ death and ended only in 1936 by an angreement in which All Saints’ conceeded very little.

The changing character of Middlesbrough with population moving from the town centre meant that from about the end of the 1920′s, the number of worshippers at All Saints’ was in decline. Indeed, in 1964 a diocesan commission called for closure of half the town centre parishes including All Saints, however, a vigourous campaign by the vicar, Father Roger Sharpley and members of his congregation saved the church. The petition they organised attracted 17,000 signatures, an indication that in the swinging 60′s the public at large still regarded All Saints’ as a vital part of Middlesbrough life. In the years since, All Saints has maintained its catholic tradition and absorbed the neighbouring parishes, and worshippers at St. Hilda and St. Aidan. Nobody pretends that the church does not face all the problems of inner-city ministry in the opening years of the 21st century, but it has plenty of zest for continuing the fight.

ALL SAINTS’ CHURCH WAR MEMORIAL TO BE REPLACED FOLLOWING HERITAGE LOTTERY FUND AWARD MIDDLESBROUGH’S All Saints’ Church First World War memorial, commemorating the lives of local men from Gjers Mills ironworks, is to be replaced following the award of an £8,500 Heritage Lottery Fund Grant. The “They answered their Country’s Call” project takes its name from text that appeared on the war memorial which commemorated those who died from the parish before it was stolen and damaged in 2007. This project will explore the impact of the First World War on Middlesbrough, its industries and churches, with the replacement of the war memorial one of the highlights of the year-long scheme. The project will also include a programme of education activities and public events, a First World War Exhibition at the grade II* listed church, digitisation of historic material and repair work to the damaged original war memorial. Local partners Middlesbrough Council, Teesside Archives, Teesside University student volunteers and William Lane Foundry, which has housed the damaged war memorial since it was recovered following an appeal, have joined forces to make the project possible.

All Saints’ Father Glyn Holland said “We are delighted that after several years since the loss of the war memorial we are now able to remember those ironworkers and managers from the area that worked at Gjers Mills, answered their country’s call and sacrificed their lives during the First World War”. Project Manager Tosh Warwick added: “The support from the Heritage Lottery Fund and local partners will ensure “They answered their Country’s Call” will help preserve the memories and heritage of the Middlesbrough people who made the ultimate sacrifice during the First World War”. Explaining the importance of the HLF support, the head of the HLF in the North East, Ivor Crowther, said: “The impact of the First World War was far reaching, touching and shaping every corner of the UK and beyond. We are enabling even more communities like those involved in “They answered their Country’s Call” to explore the continuing legacy of this conflict and help local young people in particular to broaden their understanding of how it has shaped our modern world.”   Edit

The power of Christian prayer I am in Thy Presence
Help me, Lord, to remember that Christianity is not to be confined to the church ... nor exercised only in prayer and meditation, but that everywhere I am in Thy Presence.
