All Saints News – for the week of January 15th onwards…
All Saints seeks to be a church of Up, In, Out. At our core, at our DNA, we place the importance of Up – Worship and Prayer, In – Deep Community and Life Long Discipleship, and OUT – (local and global) Service and Evangelism.
Next Sunday! Sunday 22nd January – 0930 service. We celebrate Holy Communion with our sung worship led by our music group. There is Sunday School (4-12 years old) and crèche (under 4s) provided. We also welcome the Archdeacon for NW Europe, Venerable Paul Vrolijk to preach.
Notices for the diary
Thursday Prayers – between now and end of February, every Thursday from 8pm – 9pm we will hold a Holy Communion and Prayer service.
It will be said (no music), have a short – 5 minute address – and include 15-20 of intercession for All Saints. Our primary focus will be praying for a new building, for God’s leading, bringing new issues to him as they arise, as well as praying for our city and other church plans (such as our church family away day). There will be space to pray silently or outloud. It is important we gather to pray for that new building and God’s direction, to lift our need before him and ask for his wisdom for those seeking that new home. I’d like to invite you to choose one Thursday evening between the dates of January 19th to February 23rd inclusive, and come and pray with us. It will be held in the day chapel here in Heilige Geest Kerk.
