All Hallows Church, Ipswich

General Details

All Hallows is an Anglican Church within the Church of England located to the south east of Ipswich town centre in the St. Edmundsbury & Ipswich diocese and we are part of the Ipswich Deanery group of churches.

All Hallows church is a unique red-brick building designed by the architect Munro Cautley. People have said that it looks very much like a Power Station and in fact one of our previous priests would retort “it is a power station, full of the power of the Holy Spirit”.   The church's foundation stone was laid on 8 May 1938 and the consecration of the church by the Bishop was held on Friday 26 May 1939 along with the dedication of the font and cover which was gifted by members of the Mother's Union across the diocese in memory of Lady Alastair Graham. Lord Alastair Graham was reportedly mainly responsibe for raising funds for the building project.   The church was built in the new council housing estate to replace what is now the church hall, as the centre of Anglican worship for the parish and it has been granted Grade II listed status. Of special interest is the inlaid walnut marquetry in the chancel, choir stalls and twin ambo (perhaps better known as the reading desk and pulpit) which are in art deco style. We also have a bronze maquette depicting St Paul at the moment of his conversion which was made by Bruce Denny who worshipped with us as a child. People often speak of feeling the presence of God in this beautiful, yet simple, building.   But of course a church isn't just bricks and mortar, it is a place where people can meet, celebrate or find peace in the presence of our Lord God.   As well as our own 10am Sunday services, a black led church, True Vine, uses the hall for worship every Sunday. The Egyptian Coptic Church of East Anglia also worships in the church building on the first Saturday of each month and our local schools use the church for leaving or seasonal services. As a result there is, as you can see, excellent potential to witness to our shared faith.   The Parochial Church Council is always open to ideas about how to further the kingdom of God within and beyond our parish boundary.  A Mission Plan has been formulated  and we would very much like to follow the plan in raising both the profile and the experience of the church to a wider number of people.  To this end we will continue to develop our work with both Morland Church of England Primary School and Pipers Vale as well as the local uniform organisations and retirement establishments.   We are actively engaged in working with Rhiannon King, the Archdeacon of Ipswich, and other churches in the town on the Inspiring Ipswich project.

Notes

We would like to offer you a very warm welcome to All Hallows Church, Landseer Road, Ipswich.
  Please feel free to browse our website, take some time to look at our photos and read our articles. We are a Church of England church, and are proud of our strong relationship with the community of the Gainsborough, Greenwich and Ravenswood areas of Ipswich.   We aim to provide a safe and caring environment for all people in, or associated with, our church and look forward to meeting you.   Alongside the church lies the church hall building which is fully accessible from our good sized car park and is equipped with a range of chairs and tables for use by hirers.    The large hall, with its high ceiling and a seating/dancing capacity of 120, is ideal for the use of an indoor bouncy castle at childrens parties, these being the most popular bookings at the weekend. It also lends itself well for larger meetings or gatherings, activity space e.g. aerobics, or rehearsal room.   The smaller hall, with a capacity of 40, provides a more intimate space for meetings, gatherings or activities.   Both halls have direct access to a good sized well equiped kitchen space and separate toilets for men, women and the disabled.   A fenced secure garden area alongside the building can be accessed directly from the small hall if you are planning an outdoor activity. If required, the garden can also be accessed from the car park.   Each hall and the kitchen are individually hired out at very competitive hourly rates so the cost is only for the areas used. Both halls have regular weekly hirers but there are time slots available most days Monday-Friday.

Days & Times

Church services begin at 10am on Sundays and the hall is available for bookings most days and evenings.
