All Saints Church is in a prominent position by the commercial and shopping area of New Cross Gate. The parish is close to Goldsmith's College with student halls of residence nearby as well as social and private housing estates.
All Saints Community Centre is adjacent to the church and is an important part of the Church’s outreach into the area.
There are a number of schools in the parish including Kender Primary School where good links have been established.
ASA is 60-80 (with about 120 who would call themselves regular members). The congregation is quite equally balanced across the age range and there is no particular age range that is dominant. The congregation is diverse. We estimate that 60% of our congregation are from West Africa primarily from Sierra Leone but also from Nigeria, Ghana and the Ivory Coast, 20% of the congregation are from the West Indies and 20% are white European.
