Children and Youth

A warm welcome to all ages



It is our duty to protect everyone in our church or who attends our weekday or weekend groups, whatever age they may be and whatever needs they may have.


Meet some of the people who help lead All Saints Whitstable

We have a wide range of people at All Saints who help lead different aspects of our church life. The people listed here are just a small section of the many people who work hard for the church in many ways. We give thanks to all in our church who help. These people are mentioned here as contacts you might immediately find useful. Please use the contact form on this website and your message will be forwarded to them.


Team Vicar

Rev Simon Tillotson

Simon joined All Saints in 2007 having previously been vicar of Aylesford in the Diocese of Rochester. He was first ordained in 1994 and before that worked for an MP. Simon considers it a privilege to live and serve God in the wonderful town of Whitstable.

Simon enjoys song-writing, following Manchester United, and walking in the countryside with his wife Cathy and dog Ben. He has an MA and BA degree from Cambridge in Theology and a BA degree in English Literature from London University.

The Whitstable Team

All Saints is just one of five churches worshipping in seven church buildings in the Whitstable Team (Church of England). 

Among many things we are worshipping together via the Daily Office online at this difficult time.

"Church should not be something we do occasionally or on Sundays; it’s a way of life, it’s part and parcel of who we are"

All Saints Church Hall

The hall is currently closed due to the Coronavirus outbreak. When it reopens, it will continue to be fully booked out during weekday mornings, afternoons and evenings. We regret this means that new groups will not be able to book spaces at the hall on weekdays but it is at least a sign that the hall is well used and serving the community. 

There is some availability for children's parties, afternoon social events, and charity quiz nights and other charity fundraising events at the weekends and on Friday evenings after 8pm but we are not yet sure when social distancing rules will be eased to make such events possible. 


We do not let the hall out for evening parties, discos or wedding receptions, due to noise issues with our neighbourhood.


Weddings, Baptisms, Thanksgivings, Blessings after Civil Marriage, Renewal of Vows to mark an Anniversary

Although this page was created during the Coronavirus crisis when weddings and baptisms are cancelled for the time being, we are conscious people are thinking ahead to better days when the epidemic is no more and we can meet together to celebrate special events like anniversaries, weddings, and christenings. 
With that in mind you can register your interest now in booking a service at All Saints and provisionally book dates too on the understanding that it is not yet a firm booking.
