Christmas!

From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai

A wonderful Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols

Dear Friends,

Last Friday and Saturday nights we had our wonderful Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols – a real beginning to Christmas!  Thanks to the Lannacapella Choir and to all those who did readings or helped behind the scenes.

The Lannacapella Choir

Christmas will soon be upon us, those who have signed up for the Christmas lunch should standby to hear what they have to bring!  Of course, our midnight mass and Christmas morning service will be the centre of our worship, and as we look forward to singing the familiar carols we can rejoice in their message: peace on earth and good will, and the knowledge that God is with us.

Christmas Services at All Saints:

Saturday 24th December – Christmas Eve
11:30 p.m. Midnight Mass

Sunday 25th December – Christmas Day
11 a.m. Christmas Family Eucharist


 .

Our readings for this Sunday, the fourth Sunday of Advent, will be Isaiah 7:10-16, Romans 1:1-7, and Matthew 1:18-25, and we will be singing the carols O Come, All Ye Faithful, Once in Royal David’s City, Silent Night, and See Amid the Winter’s Snow.  The readings can be found via this link!

Our new church directory is still available – thanks to Chris for pushing this!  Reply to this email to get a copy!

The Eight Reindeer Monologues

All Saints member, Connie Mudore, plays Dancer, one of Santa’s reindeer in The Eight Reindeer Monologues.  This dark adult comedy will be performed at the AUA Auditorium (old city) 12/21 through 12/24. All performances are at 7 pm. In this play, Santa is not a very nice man and all of his reindeer are in prison as a result of his actions.  Connie has tickets available for sale today after the service. Ticket price is 300 THB. If you would like more information, contact Connie at constance.faye8@gmail.com

If you don’t know the way to All Saints, 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,

God bless,

Iain
