Volunteer Role All Saints Church occupies a unique position at the heart of Kingston and has witnessed much, from the coronation of Athelstan, the first King of England in 925, through the Reformation and slavery, right up to the role of the church in Kingston today. The Heritage and Learning department at All Saints is committed to engaging people of all ages with the rich history of the church and Kingston. Family activities take place throughout the Kingston Borough school holidays and aim to be a fun and creative way for families and visitors to engage with the history and heritage of All Saints. These activities can include trails around the church, art and craft activities, storytelling and demonstrations from visiting craftspeople and performers. The family activities aim to highlight specific aspects of the church, giving families the opportunity to explore and enjoy the fabric of the building in a new way, while spending time together. Family activities heritage volunteers undertake a variety of tasks, to support the work of the Heritage and Learning department. These include welcoming families to the church, helping with trails inside the church and art and craft activities.
