Happy New Year!

Christmas Day at All Saints

Dear Friends,

.
What a wonderful Christmas!  We had around seventy people at our Christmas Morning Eucharist, and good numbers for our Christmas Eve morning service, and for Midnight Mass!  You can watch the video of the Christmas Morning Eucharist here!

Then following the Christmas service, forty people joined us for Christmas lunch, with the best turkeys in Chiang Mai!  Thanks to the Chase family and all the others who organised and brought the food!
