Establish the Work
of our Hands

A community of God's people, called to live and to love as the Body of Christ.

"Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands." - Ps. 90:17

When we first built a church building in southwest Austin, this was our prayer. That the Lord would establish us as his Body, establish us as a life-giving part of the community. By his grace, we have seen this happen, to the point that we now need more room in order to welcome all those the Lord brings through our doors.

All Saints Sanctuary Project

The current space in which we gather for worship is titled "Interim Sanctuary." This is because All Saints has always planned to complete our campus design  with a permanent Sanctuary. The design for this Sanctuary comes from Andersson-Wise Architects who also designed the first phase of our campus.

A combination of historic architectural elements complemented by clean modern touches, the design embodies the ancient-modern mixture of All Saints' worship services.

Where are we in the process? 

The All Saints community has come together to pledge $25 million towards the sanctuary project. Thank you to all who are participating! This puts All Saints in a good place to finish up the pre-construction phase this summer, with an eye towards mobilization of a construction project this fall. With $25 million in pledges, and plans to defer some components of the project, All Saints will pursue debt financing for the balance of the construction costs. These deferments include the balconies, the basement and its three classrooms, the bell tower, and the bride's room.

Although it appears we have the means to begin the sanctuary building project, we remain hopeful for further contributions as we move towards construction. Additional pledges could enable us to reinstate the deferred elements and minimize our reliance on borrowed funds.

Is now the right time to begin giving to the Sanctuary Project?

For many, yes. If you've been considering making a donation in 2024, now is an excellent time to do so. All Saints is currently earning 5% interest on the funds that have already been contributed, as construction has not yet commenced. If you're ready to start giving, you can so so here.

If you have any questions or have a more complex gift, please contact David Breeding.
Notable Features Include:
Seating for nearly 950 (with balconies)
Traditional Cruciform Shape
Wooden Pews
Bell Tower
Three Balcony Seating Areas

Why more room?

When All Saints first undertook to build our permanent church campus nearly a decade ago, we did so in faith that the Lord was calling us to put down roots and minister to the community in and around southwest Austin. Since that time, we have been blessed with abundant growth in many ways. We've grown in simple attendance from Sunday mornings to weekday ministries - across the board attendance growth. But we've also grown in depth, in the type of ministries we are able to support. Most recently, what began as a single, small ESL class, the Lord has shaped and grown into an entire ministry, an after-school program, and a Spanish-language worship service.  All of the things that we do on our campus are only possible because of having a physical space in which to do them.

We want to continue not just to sustain our existing ministries, but to open up new opportunities for serving all those who come through our doors. 

How we're currently seeking more room:

All Saints has already implemented several steps to open up more space for Sunday worship. In addition to the Sanctuary project, there are more in the works or being considered:

Three Worship Services

In April 2021, All Saints began offering three worship services every Sunday morning.

Spanish-language Service

In April 2023, All Saints launched its Spanish-speaking worship service which meets in the Chapel concurrently with the third English service.

Service Times

You may have noticed that our service times have changed a few times over the last three years. This is another way we seek to make room. By adjusting service times, we've discovered just the right times to balance attendance, opening more space to welcome guests and regular attenders.

Additional Plans and Possibilities

  • In August 2024, All Saints will commission some of its members being sent out to start Resurrection Presbyterian Church with Rev. Adam Radcliff in North Austin.
