over 55's


Tiger@Ten   

Tiger @ Ten is a lively outreach group of people over 55 years old. We offer a place for folks to meet each fortnight on a Tuesday morning, at 10 am in the Tiger Building (next to All Saints church on the High Street). With a fantastic team and over 80 regular members, Tiger @ Ten has become a much loved highlight of the week.

We offer a warm welcome, a range of activities and an opportunity to meet new and old friends within a caring Christian environment. We have a short Christian "Thought for the day" and an opportunity for guests to use our prayer box. The homemade refreshments are ever popular! Our regular activities include a book exchange, newspapers and magazine corner, crosswords and Suduko, board games, pool and chair aerobics. For relaxation, health and well being we offer hand massage and a chance to develop your creative skills. We continue our knitting project for a mission to Sri Lanka.

  • 31st July
  • 14th and 28th August
  • 11th and 25th September
  • 9th, 23rd and 30th October

Ministry in Residential and Nursing Homes

Each stage of life brings with it opportunities and challenges, but old age probably has more of the latter than the former. As our bodies grow older, we are able to do less, even though we may not feel any different "on the inside". Old age can be a time of frustration and regret, isolation from families and friends, of fearfulness, anxiety and loss.

Lindfield has a large number of Residential and Nursing Homes and all saints Lindfield has an important ministry to them. At present, we have teams of visitors in five of these Homes. We work with the staff and with members of other churches to provide a ministry which recognises the dignity of those who are at this stage of life. We try to bring spiritual comfort and nourishment to each resident irrespective of religious affiliation or none.

Our aim is to provide:
  • regular visits from lay visitors
  • Holy Communion and other services
  • periodic Senior Alpha courses
  • Bible studies
  • spiritual counsel and prayer on a one to one basis


All Saints Lindfield currently work with the following Homes
  • Arthur Bliss House
  • Compton House, Little Compton
  • Crossways
  • Summerlands
  • Walstead Place
