All Saints Anglican Church, Irondequoit, New York

All Saints Anglican Church of Rochester, NY:
Evicted, yet Moving Forward

A summary judgment of the NY State Supreme Court was issued on September 13, 2006 in favor of the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester forcing All Saints Anglican Church out of its church buildings at 759 Winona Boulevard in Irondequoit. A final decision awaits the outcome of an appeal, which is currently being taken from this judgment.

In loving generosity and Christian hospitality, the people of Reformation Lutheran Church have offered a place for All Saints’ ongoing life and worship. The Christian reality of faith in the Risen Lord Jesus Christ continues to be celebrated and witnessed by the members of All Saints.

The Rev. David Harnish has stated:
The church is its people and not the buildings where they worship, truly even “the powers of death shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18). The Christians of All Saints Anglican Church are indeed alive and, like the first Christians, they are finding strength through meeting in home groups and moving ahead in faith.

All Saints, where people are warmly welcomed, is in communion with the Anglican Church of Uganda. The congregation will be building on this international mission partnership with the people of Uganda, as well as sharing in local and regional ministries in upstate New York. All Saints seeks to join with fellow believers across denominational boundaries in promoting the primary place of the Bible as the traditional Christian guide for living and authority on matters of faith.

We welcome all those who would like to gather with All Saints Anglican Church for worship, prayer and witness at 10 a.m. Sundays in the chapel at 111 N. Chestnut St. which is housed in Reformation Lutheran Church buildings.

May the genuine Christian faith, based upon the Holy Bible, come into greater strength and vitality in the lives of today’s believers. It is time to stand up for Jesus!

On behalf of the People of All Saints Anglican Church,
The Rev. David J. Harnish, Rector
