Our Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols was more successful than we could have imagined with over two hundred people in attendance. Video of the event can be seen via this link! Thanks again to all who made it such a wonderful event!
Christmas is very nearly upon us and, as people travel for the Christmas vacation, we will have a combined 11 am service this Sunday! Then we will meet again on Christmas Eve for Midnight Mass and again on Christmas Day. (There will be no service on Sunday 27th December!)
On Christmas Day we will be sharing a special pot-luck lunch following the morning service. All are welcome to attend, but if you know that you will be there let me know, so we can organise things a little! Six people haveconfirmed so far!
For this Fourth Sunday in Advent, our readings are Isaiah 52:7-10, Romans 16:25-27, and Luke 2:1-20. These are different from the set readings for this week as some people will be unable to attend on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. We will be singing the hymns O Come All Ye Faithful, Let all Mortal Flesh keep Silent, O Little Town of Bethlehem, and Joy to the World! Our sermon will be entitled Shepherds Pie, again?
Video and audio of our major services can be found on the Audio-Visual page of the All Saints website and as always, directions can be found on the Where and When page. Most people get to hear about us via the internet or by word of mouth, so please feel free to pass on this email to others. All are welcome to join us as we celebrate the Christ of Christmas! We hope to see you soon and that you will enjoy worshiping with us,
