All Saints!

From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai

We are all people of All Saints!

POTLUCK THIS WEEK!

Dear Friends,

Another year has passed, and we are again about to celebrate our patronal festival.

All Saints is called All Saints to emphasise that all – saints or sinners – are welcome!  This will be the theme of our worship this week!  All – you included – are warmly invited to join us!  If you haven’t been for a while, why not come this week to renew old friendships and join in worship of the God who has made us all!

Our readings this Sunday will be Isaiah 25:6-9, Revelation 21:1-6a, and John 11:32-44, and we will be singing the hymns For All the Saints, Sing with all the Saints in Glory, The saints of God their conflict past, Let us Build a House, and O When the Saints!

The readings can be found via this link and past services and sermons can be viewed via the All Saints audio-visual page!

If you don’t know the way to All Saints, directions can be found on the Where and When page.

All Saints’ Day – Sunday 4th November

All Saints’ Day is our patronal festival, and following the service we will have a short congregational meeting to update everyone on the year past and the year ahead.  There will also be the opportunity for people to sign a pledge card for the following year.  This will be followed by a soup and sandwich potluck.  Please bring bread products and sandwich fillings, etc, to share – see below!

Remembrance Sunday 

Don’t forget!!!!  On Sunday 11th November, our service at All Saints will begin at 9:30 a.m. to accommodate the Remembrance Day Ceremony at the Foreign Cemetery.

Season of Remembrance

November will again be our Season of Remembrance.  Each Sunday will have a different emphasis.

Remembrance Day will mark the hundredth anniversary of the end of the First World War, and this year falls on a Sunday.  All Saints’ regular Sunday service will begin at 9:30 a.m. to enable those who wish to attend the ceremony at the Foreign Cemetery to do so.

God bless,

Iain
