All Saints is an Anglican (Protestant) church located in Menteng and Pondok Indah Jakarta. Established in 1819, All Saints has served their primarily English-speaking congregation for over 200 years and welcome all denominations (or none) to join them in worship.

Transforming Lives through Outreach.

A significant part of All Saints’ mission is to encourage and support the growth of the Christian church in Indonesia. Toward that end, directly and indirectly, they have an active outreach programme. The church’s Outreach program supports about 21 projects across the country, including children’s homes, old people’s homes, scholarships for students and rehabilitation of the disabled. Here is a partial list:
