From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai
Mark on Zoom last Sunday
I am back in Chiang Mai, and our worship continues on Zoom at 10 a.m. on Sunday. I am required to self-isolate for two weeks as I visited Phuket and so I shall be preaching from home while Mark will lead from the church.
The theme of this week’s service is Jesus the Good Shepherd. It is a blessing to know that wherever we are, and whether we can gather together in person or not, God is with us and cares for us as a good shepherd cares for his sheep!
We will have a Holy Communion memorial this Sunday, but not a consecrated Eucharist, as there is little point in pre-consecrating the elements when people are receiving virtually at home!

Meeting ID: 548 801 501
Our scripture readings for the Fourth Sunday of Easter will be Acts 4:5-12, 1 John 3:16-24, and John 10:11-18, and we will be singing the hymns Christ the Lord is Risen Today, The Lord’s My Shepherd, The Lord’s My Shepherd / I will trust in You, and The King of Love my Shepherd Is!
Although we can’t be together in person, we still share the good news that Christ is risen and that God’s love for us, and the world, never ends!
He is Risen!
YCF Vacation – Still time to give!
Each year the Youth Charity Foundation takes most of the children away on vacation. This year they will be going to the Cha’Am Christian Mission Home. It will be a great break for them by the sea.
Each child needs about THB 5,000 to cover the cost of the trip. They will be away for eight nights.
Budget for one person
1. Food 80 baht x 27 meals = 2160 baht
2. Accommodation 130 baht x 8 nights = 1040 baht
3. Travel = 500 baht
4. Health insurance = 500 baht
5. Snack and pocket money = 300 baht
6. Other = 500 baht.
Total = 5000 baht.
Some have already given, but if you could sponsor a child, please contact me or our new treasurer, Arthur Mann. So far we have raised about THB 25,000.
The trip will be from 1st – 8th May.
No lunch until further notice – everyone is away and Covid is on the rise! We will probably recommence in May!
