All Saints, Chiang Mai, aims to be a worship community welcoming all people!
Each Sunday we meet to share the Eucharist, or Holy Communion, as we seek to worship the risen Christ and learn more of him.
Please feel free to join us!
All Saints seeks to be a church that is welcome to all, whether rich or poor, Thai or farang, black or white, gay, lesbian, transgender, or straight, old or young, Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, or Jew. We aim to declare the inclusive love of Jesus Christ, and demonstrate his radical call to discipleship in our lives. We want to live open, honest, lives in obedience to his call, and to serve the people of Chiang Mai, Thailand, and the world.
We worship in the Anglican / Episcopalian church tradition, but include Methodists, Baptists, Roman Catholics, Presbyterians, Lutherans, and Quakers, amongst our number. All are welcome to worship with us!
All Saints, Chiang Mai, is accountable to All Saints Chiang Mai Mission which is registered British Charity Number 1182147.

Directions to our Building
From the West / Central Chiang Mai cross the Ping River on the bridge just south of the American Consulate. Continue down the Kaeo Nawarat Road crossing the Chiang Mai-Lamphun Road. Pass the first entrance to Prince Royal College on the left and go under the footbridge. Immediately turn right next to the old EFL Language School. Go down Soi 2, and take the first turning on the right into Soi 2/1. Follow the road round and you will find us on the corner!
From the East / Superhighway: leave the Superhighway at the Central Festival shopping mall junction along the Kaeo Nawarat Road towards the centre of Chiang Mai. After about 500m you will pass Dara Academy and McCormick Hospital on your left. Carry straight on, passing Prince Royal’s College on your right. Turn left into Soi 2 by the old EFL Language School, just before the footbridge. (This is the second footbridge across the road.) Go down Soi 2, and take the first turning on the right into Soi 2/1. Follow the road round and you will find us on the corner!
Why are we here?
All Saints aims to be a welcoming worship community that accepts everyone no matter their age, gender, race, sexuality, or theology. All we ask is that you want to join with us and share Jesus working amongst us.
Our worship follows the Anglican liturgy – also drawing on the heritage of the Lutheran, Catholic, Orthodox and Presbyterian Churches amongst others! We join in a weekly Eucharist to signify that all who seek Jesus are welcome in God’s kingdom.
Liturgy, to some extent, involves weekly repetition. This is not a bad thing! As words become familiar our minds can be released to focus on God through the words we are saying and beyond. Our focus can move beyond the here and now and focus on God and his presence among us.
A liturgical church follows the church lectionary and observes the seasons of the church year. Again this can be a very positive thing: the preacher is restrained from concentrating on favourite bible passages, and instead must follow the three years cycle of readings from the gospels, the epistles, the psalms and the Old Testament. The rhythm of the church year focuses our minds on the God who works through time and history, and yet is beyond both.
Liturgical worship involves the whole people of God – praying, singing, responding, and receiving. It involves the senses – not just hearing the word, but seeing the colours, the light, the symbols, tasting the bread and the wine, touching the reality of God’s world. Actions speak louder than words! As we take and eat, we receive God’s message and take Jesus into our lives.
All Saints, Chiang Mai, is an independent Anglican/Episcopal congregation. We are not linked with the Diocese of Singapore or the Anglican Province of South East Asia.
