About All Saints’ Anglican, Mitcham

All Saints’ Mitcham (ASM) is a traditional Anglican church of mostly older people and we are now looking to build a foundation for the next stage in our history with Reformed Evangelical principles. ASM also capitalises on our geographic location – we are in the middle of the Mitcham shopping strip, and close to the train station. Our Kids Church has grown and we now have a need for a part-time Kids and Families Minister to oversee the ministry, with a view to the role growing. ASM offers valuable experience in revitalising a church to develop skills for future ministry roles. Kids Church runs from 10 am – 11:30 am on Sundays with two classes by age group.
