At All Saints on Sunday morning we gather for The Lord's own Service, for the Lord's own people on the Lord's own day. It is celebrated here as the Parish Communion every Sunday at 10am (Common Worship) and at 8am there is a said celebration of Holy Communion in traditional language. Holy Communion is also celebrated on Wednesdays at 10.00 am in the side chapel. A Family Service is held instead of Parish Communion at Harvest, Remembrance, Mothering Sunday and on one Sunday in each month during school term time.

History

 

A Short History of All Saints, Langton Green (adapted from 'All Saints Church, Langton Green - A Short History and Guide'  Peter Batts 1994.)

We are extremely fortunate to have a beautiful and cherished church building in an excellent state of repair and built (by Chambers of Penshurst) in 1863 in a version of the Early English Style, considered at the time of the Gothic Revival to be the only truly Christian style. It was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert-Scott, the celebrated Victorian architect.

In the early 1860s a fairly large corner of the Green was given by Mr Charles Powell of Speldhurst and a public appeal was launched to build a 'Chapel of Ease at Lankton' (only later to become Langton Green).

In the church are windows by Morris and Co (all very early), Clayton and Bell, Powells, C E Kempe and Gerald Moira. Our picture here shows a predella in a chancel window by Powells showing the Angel of the Crucifixion. The most obvious Pre-Raphaelite Morris window depicts Mary Magdalene (not illustrated) by William Morris himself, 1862.
