About All Saints’ Church
At All Saints Church we love being involved with All Saints Primary. Our team regularly come into school and lead collective worship to help the children engage with and understand what the Bible says and what it means for us today. Following our time of collective worship, we join the children in their lessons getting alongside them, getting to know them and learning something from them as we spend more time together. Whilst we enjoy coming into school, we also like to invite the children to come and join us in church for special occasions and services throughout the year. It’s always a joy to be involved with All Saints Primary being a part of their spiritual and school life.
We have three team members who regularly visit school, here is a little bit more about them:
Revd Mike Coe (Vicar)
I’ve been the vicar at All Saints since September 2018. I was born in Romford, Essex, have a degree in Business Studies from the University of Bath and before training to becoming a vicar I was a satellite dish salesman, a TV marketing executive, a children’s and youth worker, and an itinerant evangelist. I was a vicar in Northampton and Hastings before coming to Ilkley. I’m married to Lisa with four adult children and five grandchildren, and enjoy walking the dog, reading World War II history, watching foreign language subtitled crime dramas and supporting West Ham United (although enjoy might not apply to the last one!). I am delighted to be the vicar at All Saints and really believe that God called me to be here at this stage in its mission and ministry. We have always felt welcomed by the church family and wider community and it feels like we’ve been here for much longer than we have. The partnership between All Saints Church and All Saints School is a vitally important one for me and my hope and prayer is that the All Saints Church family will use the resources that God has given us to be both a blessing to the wider community and a beacon for the Gospel as we enable everyone to know Jesus better.
Revd Adam Roebuck (Curate)
Hi! I’m Adam and I’m the Curate (trainee vicar) at All Saints Church. I’ve been coming into All Saints School since September 2021, helping the children grow in their knowledge and love of God and how he can really make a difference in their lives and the lives of others. In that time I have had such a warm welcome from everyone at the school, I am delighted to be part of the team. I live in Ilkley with my wife and two young sons, and when I’m not working I can be found reading, playing board games and tramping all over the moor!
Adam Robinson (Children’s and Youth Ministry Lead)
Hello! I’m Adam (as well!) and I am the Children’s and Youth Ministry Lead at All Saints Church. I have been involved in children and youth work for over seven years and look forward to this next chapter in that work. This job means that I have the pleasure of being involved with All Saints Primary and this time the school proved itself to be a warm and welcoming place by both the staff and the students (as well as their excellent school dinners!). I am excited to be joining in with the staff and pupils, getting alongside them and having fun as we learn hand in hand together with God. I hope to make the Bible an accessible book to all pupils who want to listen and learn, making it fun and interactive and something that is still relevant today. I live in
Utley and am getting married to my fiancé Charlotte Spring next year. I love walking (which makes Ilkley an even nicer place to be), building Lego, watching movies, playing music, drawing and cooking. So basically, just being a big kid.
