About All Hallows

All Hallows Church, Wyncote, Pennsylvania, was founded in 1891.  We are a parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania of the Episcopal Church, USA, which is part of the Anglican Communion.
All Hallows is a community of faith centered in worship, grounded in scripture, with a desire to grow ever more faithful in our lives centered in Jesus Christ.  Seeking to engage in a journey of faith that integrates the beauty of tradition while responding to a call to discern new ways to seek God’s presence, we invite you to come and see, to pray and to discover a spiritual home that nurtures your soul.
About Rev. Christopher W. Exley

The Reverend Christopher Exley became Rector of All Hallows Church in 2021. His presence has triggered a new era at All Hallows and in our community with his energy, creativity, entrepreneurial spirit, and his pastor’s heart.

A lifelong Episcopalian, Chris had a successful career as managing director for an IT consulting company in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. While his call to ministry has been ever present, Father Chris says that God was waiting until he was ready.

A graduate of Virginia Theological Seminary, he came to All Hallows from St. Peter’s in the Great Valley in Malvern, Pennsylvania, where he served as Assistant Rector from 2017 to 2021.

Father Chris and his wife Carol live in Royersford and have three adult children. A fan of all Philadelphia sports teams, he has a special affinity for the Phillies. Chris has been active in many local theater groups as both actor and carpenter and loves to sing, golf, fish, and play board games and video games. His expertise in IT and performing arts are clearly assets in his innovative vision, grounded in theology, and supporting the spread of the good news of Jesus Christ in our community.

Chris Exley insists that church is not just for Sunday – and is not just reserved for those who have been attending a parish their whole lives. His philosophy is that wherever you are on your spiritual journey, and whomever you believe yourself to be, “All are welcome… Always.” He demonstrates this philosophy daily in the many ways he reaches out to the congregation and the community around All Hallows.  Reach out to Fr.
