The Week Ahead at All Saints

Yes, I do enjoy riding my high horse. Thanks for asking.

It’s been a pretty hectic week around here - AGAIN. It’s a funny thing but at least twice each week someone will come into the office to say hello, and during the conversation they will say these words “well, this is an older congregation … not much happens around here”. This is the point where I put on my britches and helmet and climb onto an extremely high horse before delivering a lengthy diatribe of “Ways in Which You Are Wrong” to that poor, unsuspecting person.

As you know our Ministry and Mission Committee have been working hard to gather your thoughts on the five pillars of our Ministry and what our next step should be. This is one way to help and to participate in building the church and making God’s presence felt in our community. I never cease to be amazed at the amount of energy some Parishioners have, and the time they spend both pursuing God and deepening their relationship with him through worship and service. To someone like me, who goes home after four hours at work complaining “I’m tired!” - it’s a wee bit shaming.

So - tomorrow is Messy Church day - yaaaay!! Bring a small person along at 4 pm for crafts, music, stories, the most casual communion service ever and of course, dinner. The theme for tomorrow is Moses - the man who started life in a rush (haha).

On Sunday we meet at 8:30 am for Quite Communion and again at 10:00 am for the Family Eucharist.

On Wednesday the 10 am Eucharist and Bible Study will be tackling Revelations - never let it be said that we shy away from difficult subjects!

The IODE ladies will be playing Bridge in the hall from 12 noon - 3:30 pm.

Thursday 1 November at 9:15 am the Parish Health Care Team are in. The Craft ladies meet at 10:30 am in the hall and there is a meditation group in the library at 6:30 pm. If that’s something you might be interested in please contact the office.

Don’t forget the M & M Information Meeting next Sunday - 4 November - following the 10 am Service. I’ll see you there!
