Happy New Year!

From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai

New Year’s Celebration at YCF

Dear Friends,

Happy New Year to everyone!  Join us at the Vicarage tonight it you are free!  Call 0 904 604 304 or email for directions if you don’t know the way!

We have had a wonderful Christmas season at All Saints.  You can see the dramatic rush to change our worship sanctuary into our dining room on Christmas Day in this short fun video!  Nearly sixty people worshipped with us on Christmas morning, and over forty stopped for lunch!  Thanks to Phyllis and Arthur for organising the lunch, and Pat and Julia, and so many more for assisting!

On the 28th December we had a wonderful time taking gifts to the children of the Youth Charity Foundation and joining them for dinner and a show!  You can see a couple of videos of the show here! We Wish you a Merry Christmas DanceAway in a Manger Song, and We Wish you a Merry Christmas Song!

William and Tarntip then invited everyone to their home on Monday 30th December for a New Year Potluck and House Blessing – including all the kids from the Youth Charity foundation!  Another great evening!

The Christmas season ends this Sunday, and our readings for Epiphany are Isaiah 60:1-6, Ephesians 3:1-6, and Matthew 2:1-12, and we will be singing the hymns We Three Kings of Orient Are, The First Nowell, As With Gladness Men of Old, and Hark The Herald Angels Sing!   Past services and sermons can be viewed via the All Saints audio-visual page!

New Year’s Eve

Everyone is invited to bring in the New Year at the Vicarage to bring this year to an end!  We will begin at 8 p.m. and go into 2020 together!  Happy New Year!

Gymkhana Lunch

We will meet together again for lunch at the Gymkhana Club this Thursday, 2nd January!

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.

God bless,

Iain
