From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai

Rev. Peter Tarleton will be ministering this Sunday

Dear Friends,

Peter Tarleton will be preaching at All Saints this Sunday and it’s appropriate that the theme is humility for Peter is a humble man!  He has offered to preach and celebrate communion at what will probably be our smallest service of the year as most of us will be on retreat in Chiang Dao!

Last week we had one of the biggest attendances of 2022 as we were joined by all of the All Saints Choristers made up of children from the Youth Charity Foundation, but this week numbers will be much smaller.

Our Gospel reading tells the story of the boastful Pharisee and the humble, contrite, tax-collector.  It is the humble man who goes home right with God!  Peter will unpack this more on Sunday.

Meanwhile, thanks to all who made the Choir Intensive weekend such a great success!!!  The kids had a wonderful time!  The choir will also be singing what they have learned and composed at our Celebration of All Saints Day on Sunday 30th October!

The scripture readings for this Sunday will be from Ecclesiasticus 35:12-17, 2 Timothy 4:6-8, 16-18, and Luke 18:9-14, and we will be singing the hymns Morning has Broken and Christ, Be Our Light!

This week’s service will not be on Zoom.

Thanks to all who made the whole weekend possible.

Joe leads the session!

Thanks to Paddy for being the most “active” participant, and thanks to mum for helping arrange so many practical things and the buying of all the drinks and snacks.

Off to lunch!

Mide leads!

Thanks to Kaew for being part of our choir team and providing such great leadership from the keyboard. Thanks to Denise for practical assistance – who would have thought you could cut pizza with scissors!!  Thanks to Pat and Julia for planning to help – I hope you are better Pat – have a good time in Malaysia! Thanks to Mark and Hannah for heading up the Child Protection procedures.  

And thanks to those who provided financial assistance to make all this possible – you know who you are!!!!

Finally, thanks to Joe and Mide for leading such a fantastic weekend!  Your teaching and energy is an inspiration – the kids loved you!

It was a wonderful three days!

All gathered together!

Thanks everybody!

Trip to Chiang Dao – This Weekend!

Our third church weekend at The Nest in Chiang Dao is this weekend from Friday 21st to Monday 24th October.  (The Monday is a public holiday!)   It will be a great time to escape the city and enjoy fellowship together surrounded by the beauty of nature!
