All Saints has a rich history in its Call to serve those outside the walls of the church building. The Gaston Hospice House is named after the first Rector of All Saints, Robin Johnson, who served All Saints for many years while also serving the Gaston County Community by starting many ministries to help those in need. This rich tradition of serving those in need continues today in many ways. Explore this page to learn more about the ways we serve our surrounding community.
