===========================================================

 

 

Welcome to All Saints Church. We would be delighted to share our services with you, we have something for everyone. We celebrate at 8am each Sunday with a quiet meditative service (Said Holy Communion). Then at 10am we hold a traditional sung Parish Communion with our lovely choir and organ music; the children have a lively Sunday School full of fun and craft with Bible based stories or a wonderful Godly Play experience on the third Sunday each month. Our all-inclusive, all age worship happens every second Sunday in the month, when we have our music group and simple child friendly Holy Communion. Do come and say hello!

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.
