Subject: Popularity of 'All Saints' church name
Date: Sun, 23 Oct 2005 23:01:58 +0100
So many of the Essex churches where my family worshipped were called 'All
Saints' - it has me wondering why this name was so popular. Was it perhaps
the eclesiastical equivalent of John, a nice solid name that everyone liked?
Or was there some other reason for its popularity? Apologies if I've asked
this previously, if so I must have forgotten the reason.
