From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai
It is wonderful that in the four years of its existence, All Saints has grown together as a family. Of course, as in any international church, people come and go, but we remain part of the family of All Saints!
Since Christmas we have been seeing congregations of close to thirty people, but last Sunday numbers fell to eleven! Quite a number of our people have been ill, and others travelling, but if you were in good health and in Chiang Mai and didn’t come, you were certainly missed! It is as we meet together week on week, that relationships build and friendships grow, so we can support one another in times of trial and rejoice with one another in times of celebration!
If you can join us this Sunday, please do so, but even more importantly make sure you are with us for Palm Sunday and the services of Easter which are listed below! As we worship God together we are blessed, uplifted and prepared for the week ahead, and empowered to share God’s love with the world around us! If you are not with us, you are missed! There will also be two pot-luck lunches in the Easter Season, one following the Palm Sunday service, and one following the Easter Sunday service. Join us if you can!
This Sunday our bible readings are Ezekiel 37:1-14, Romans 8:6-11, and John 11:1-45, and we will be singing the hymns Christ Whose Glory Fills The Skies, Will you come and Follow Me, Let us Break Bread Together, and Go forth and tell! The readings can be found via this link!

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 share the presence of the risen Jesus in our lives! We hope to see you soon and that you will enjoy worshiping with us,
