I'm new here. What do I need to know?
Our gatherings are centered on worship in the Episcopal Church. Our worship is Catholic, Orthodox, Reformed, and Evangelistic - CORE worship! We are Catholic which means "universal" or "whole" and our worship preaches and teaches the whole of the Christian faith as handed down from apostolic times.
We are Orthodox in our practices - giving right glory to the Triune God through the liturgical forms of worship and praise in the Book of Common Prayer.
We are Reformed as members of the Anglican Communion we share the heritage of the centrality of Scripture along with Tradition and Reason as a grounding for our faith.
We are Evangelistic in the original Greek sense of this word: bearers of good news. We believe the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ carries transforming power for our lives. This is good news!

Where to park
You may park along the street on Elm Avenue or Valley Road. All Saints also has a parking lot located off of South 8th Street & Valley Road behind the church.
What to wear
We suggest you wear what is comfortable for you. You'll find people dress on a spectrum here at All Saints from more formal to casual. What's most important is that you come!
What about COVID?
We want our campus as safe as possible for everyone. If you feel you need to wear a mask for your comfort, by all means do so. It's not uncommon to see people using masks.
All Saints has installed three, large space HEPA air filters - two in the worship space and one in our Parish Hall. These filters are running during worship and any gatherings in the Parish Hall. We strive to welcome all by making this church physically, emotionally, and spiritually safe for all who come.
What about kids?
We know it's not always easy to bring kids to church so we try to make things as comfortable and welcoming for both children and parents. On first, third, and fifth Sundays during the school year, we offer Godly Play on Sundays at 10 am for our younger children ages 3-8 in the Godly Play room just outside the worship space. On other Sundays, we have children's bulletins & crayons and Wikki Stix at the ushers station for our younger friends. Jesus welcomed children and we take our cues from him.
I'm LGBTQ+ - am I welcome?
All Saints is an affirming parish in the Episcopal Church. We are affiliated with gaychurch.org and welcome the LGBTQ+ community as part of Christ's beloved community. We believe all the sacraments are for all who are baptized into Christ!
Is the building accessible?
Our worship space and Parish Hall are fully wheelchair accessible thanks to the vision and generosity of our members who donated to our Accessible To All 1 & 2 capital campaigns. We have automated doors, an elevator, and accessible bathrooms. We also have a gender inclusive/family bathroom on the upper level outside the worship space.
No matter who you are, where you come from, who you love, or how you express yourself - there
is a place for you at All Saints, Hershey!
