Revd. Dr. Robert Adam Opala, Rector
Welcome to the website of All Saints Church, Rudby in Cleveland.
We hope that you can find the information you are looking for about our Church, but if not please contact us.
You may need to talk with someone at church about something specific like a wedding or a baptism, or you may be bereaved or otherwise distressed and need someone to help. Whatever your issue, we are here to offer help and support.
In these pages you will find out about our church community, when our services are, what we do in them, and what kinds of things we do together, especially during this time of pandemic. We welcome you to our church to join us in worshipping God.
We hope you will find faith and friendship among us. Some of us have been here for many years, others are fairly new. We all see our Church’s worship, life and work as important to our lives and we hope that you will too.
From 5th November until 2nd December, we are no longer able to open All Saints for a morning service at 9.30am on Sundays, but we shall be continuing to use Zoom for a variety of services (more details soon). Church can be opened for individual personal prayer by contacting one of the Church Wardens. Swainby Church and Crathorne Church are both open for individual prayer. The Church of men, women and children has stayed very much alive during this pandemic, and it is wonderful how we have been able to adapt to using modern technology at this time. Exciting things are planned for Advent and Christmas.

A message from the Rector:
In all our parishes of the Benefice of Whorlton, the clergy and ministers will keep praying on behalf of all people who live in Hutton Rudby and other villages of the Whorlton Benefice. Daily Eucharist will be celebrated by one of our priests, all of you are welcome to join the service on-line on our YouTube Channel (here)
However, it is important that each one of us find time for prayer. St Teresa of Avila, the great Spanish mystic used to say: Nada de turbe (let nothing trouble you). God will suffice. So with this faith in our compassionate God, let us pray for one another. Let us also be obedient to civil and ecclesial authorities. Stay calm and trust in God’s providence as nothing will happen to us without His knowledge and will. God bless all of you. Robert.
All Saints Parish Church has stood here for 850 years. But the Church is people, not just a building. It’s the company of men, women and children who believe in JESUS CHRIST as LORD AND SAVIOUR, and who seek to serve Him in their daily lives, at home and work, at school and in the local community. We warmly invite you to share in this active Church membership.
