April at All Saints

Yellow trumpets

Yellow trumpets

As I write this the sun is shining.  Hurrah!  As I skipped merrily up the path to the church this morning I was heralded in by little yellow trumpets and crocuses stretching luxuriously toward the light.  Spring sequence has been initiated!

So, lots happening this month - please take a look at the Easter/Holy Week schedule on the home page. 

Next Tuesday 4 April 2017 at 6:00 pm the Men's Fellowship meet in the hall for dinner together.   A chance for the gentlemen of the church to get together and support one another in their faith journey - plus excellent food.

On Wednesday 5 April at 10 am we gather in the Narthex for the Midweek Eucharist.  This group is steadily growing in number and last week there were 21 of us in spite of Dudley's absence (or perhaps because of it - just kidding Dudley - we missed you).

On Thursday 6 April at 9:15 am the Pastoral Health Care Team meet.  Is there anything they can do for you?  Or perhaps you would like to join them?  Please talk to Liz Macdonald or Sue Paege if so. The Craft Group also meet on Thursday at 10:30 am ish. 

At 11:00 am on Thursday the Altar Guild come together to take communion and focus on their ministry to All Saints.

Friday 7 April at 7 pm is our final Taize service of Lent.  I encourage you to attend as we take time to focus on this next stage of the journey to Easter.

On Saturday 8 April the hall and church will be full of various members of the Diocese - we are hosting a workshop from 9 am to 3 pm.  I would suggest staying out of the way on that day!

One other thing - if you need to visit the Church on a Wednesday - please try to avoid the period between 10 am and 10:30 am.  It's a lovely Oasis of calm during the week and it's immensely helpful for the building to be quiet during the service.  The office is closed during that time too.

And now - as a reward for sitting through all that - a poor quality joke ..

Q: Why does everyone like bananas? 

A:  Because they have a peel.
