Back in Church!

From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai

Back in Church!  10 a.m. this Sunday!

Dear Friends,

It is exciting news that we are recommencing face to face worship at All Saints this Sunday!  Rev. Mark Crawford, our Congregational Pastor, will be leading the worship, and a group of us met to get everything ready yesterday.  I shall be joining you remotely this Sunday, before I have three weeks off!  For those who cannot be in the church because of distance, illness, or shielding, you can still watch via Zoom.

Last week’s final Zoom-only service can be viewed here!

Our scripture readings for this Sunday will be Isaiah 55:1-5, Romans 9:1-5, and Matthew 14:13-21, and our hymns will be Holy Holy Holy! Lord God Almighty, and Christ Be Our Light!

Details of the practical arrangements are below.

Face-to-Face Worship at All Saints

We will be restarting face-to-face worship at All Saints at 10 a.m. this Sunday. The chairs have been rearranged to ensure that social distancing is maintained, people’s temperature will be taken on arrival, masks will be required, and hand gel supplied.  Names and contact details will be recorded.

All the doors and windows will be open and fans will ensure maximum air circulation.  No singing will be permitted but we will be able to listen to the hymns being played on backing-tracks and sing along in our heads.

Mark, Bill, Helga, and Chris, were there on Wednesday to get everything ready!

There will not be a coffee time following the service, but people are invited to lunch, out-doors, at Green O’Clock following the service.

The services will be shared on Zoom so that those who cannot, or do not feel happy to, attend in person, can still join!

The draft protocols can be viewed here!

All Saints’ Wednesday Lunch

This is now a weekly event!  On Wednesday, a group from All Saints again gathered for lunch!  Why not join next week?  (You don’t need to be a member of the Gymkhana Club to attend!)  We will be meeting at the Gymkhana Club at midday every Wednesday!

Weekly Offering to All Saints

You can still donate online, or place your money in the basket during the service.

It is wonderful that you will be able to meet together and join in worship once again.  I hope to join you all soon!

God bless,

Father Iain
