Merry Christmas!

From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai

This Saturday at 7 pm

Dear Friends,

Christmas is upon us, and we will begin our celebration of the Christmas Season at 7 p.m. this Saturday as we gather in the chapel of Chiang Mai Christian School. The Festival of Carols should be a wonderful event – please invite your friends but make sure they get there early for a seat!

If you are able to help with the set-up, please meet at All Saints at 10 a.m. this Saturday to help with transportation and the decoration of the chapel at the school!  We need to move the organ, the sound system, lights, chairs, an altar, and many smaller decorations, etc.  We have a small truck coming to help move the larger items, but many hands will help make things easier!

Later, please be at the chapel by 6 p.m. if you can, to help with ushering, etc!  After the service, we will then need help with refreshments and then taking down decorations and moving everything back to All Saints!

Our singing will be led by the Lannacapella Choir!

After an exciting, and probably exhausting, Saturday night, we will then gather once again at 11 a.m. Sunday morning to mark the Third Sunday of Advent.

Our readings this Sunday will be Zephaniah 3:14-20, Philippians 4:4-7, and Matthew 1:18-25, and we will be singing the carols Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus; Of the Father’s Love Begotten; and O Come, O Come, Emmanuel!

Past services and sermons can be viewed via the All Saints audio-visual page!

Christmas 2018 at All Saints

Many Christmas events coming up!  These will again include a sit-down Christmas lunch – the turkeys are already sitting in the freezer!  The meal is free but people will need to sign-up so we can calculate numbers, and people will be allocated things to bring!  Please sign-up this week as Christmas Day is almost upon us!  Donations towards the cost of the turkeys would also be welcome.  (They were $100 each!)

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.  All are welcome to join us as we celebrate the Christ of Christmas!  We hope to see you soon and that you will enjoy worshiping with us,

God bless,

Moving Forward!

From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai

The House and Land!

Dear Friends,

Last Tuesday night the All Saints Trustees met to consider the way forward for All Saints.  There were a number of items on the agenda, but he most significant and exciting was the proposal to move to a bigger and better facility!

We have been offered a house and land with a ten-year extendable lease and a nominal rent.  It is a great location in Pa Tan, and within the Superhighway.  The house will provide place for potlucks, church office, children’s work, and possibly somewhere for me to live!  The land is big enough for us to construct a purpose-built sanctuary!

The Trustees voted unanimously in favour of approving the proposal to develop the site, and I will now be finding accurate costings and producing a proposed timeline, as well as agreeing the terms of the actually rental contract.

The House!

This is an amazing opportunity and will enable All Saints to continue to grow and expand our ministry to all!  At this time of Advent, as we wait expectantly for the coming of Christ at Christmas, we can give thanks and look forward to all God’s wonderful provision. Hopefully, firm details will be available by the end of January!  Who knows, we may be able to host next year’s Festival of Carols in our own building!

Meanwhile, this year’s Festival of Carols is nearly upon us, and details of how you can help are below.  This week we will gather together to celebrate the Second Sunday of Advent as we look at the Angel appearing to Mary.

Our readings this Sunday will be Isaiah 40:1-11; Philippians 1:3-5, 9-11; and Luke 1:26-38; and we will be singing the carols O Come, O come Emmanuel; Song of Mary; and The Angel Gabriel from Heaven Came! 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.

Festival of Carols – One Week to Go!

Our Festival of Carols is only just over a week away!  It is going to be a wonderful night, and hopefully one which will raise a lot of money for the Youth Charity Foundation orphanage!

If you would like to offer practical help, we will gather at All Saints at 10 a.m. on the morning of Saturday 15th, to pack things up and transfer them to Chiang Mai Christian School Chapel.  We need to move the organ, the sound system, lights, chairs, an altar, and many smaller decorations, etc.  We have a small truck coming to help move the larger items, but many hands will help make things easier!

Help will then be needed in setting everything up and decorating the chapel, as well as assistance after the service in taking everything down, and transporting it back to All Saints!  Just come along if you can help!  There will also be a short meeting after church this Sunday about providing refreshments after the Festival and arrangements for Christmas Day!

Posters and free tickets are now available at the church.  We will need lots of people to take these this week for placing in shops, businesses, and schools!  Please take some to share!

Other Events Coming Up

Jerry Nelson from Chiang Mai Rotary asked me to share their event which is tomorrow night in aid of the Mae Tao Clinic, and Chris Tananone is part of the choir for the performance of The Messiah at Payap University on Saturday.  We will be giving out tickets for our Festival of Carols before the performance, so if anyone is going and would like to help, please let me know!

This Sunday is Advent Sunday and we will mark the beginning of Advent as we prepare once more to celebrate the coming of Jesus!  The service will be followed by a special potluck – people are invited to bring soup, bread, sandwich fillings, cookies and treats, or apple juice, to share, as we decorate the church for Christmas!

Our readings this Sunday will be Jeremiah 33:14-16, 1 Thessalonians 3:9-13, and Luke 1:5-24, and we will be singing the hymns O Come, O come Emmanuel, and Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus.

Thanksgiving!

From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai

Thank God for the Earth!

Dear Friends,

Our Season of Remembrance is drawing to a close and Advent will soon be upon us!

Last week we had a very moving service to mark the Transgender Day of Remembrance, and video of the sermon and reading of names can be viewed now.  It was great to again be joined by people from MPlus, the Chiang Mai LGBT organisation, and have them take part in the service.

Some of the MPlus people at All Saints

video of events of the Remembrance Day Ceremony at the Foreign Cemetery, produced by Steve Harrow, is also available.

God has blessed each of us in so many ways that we should be thankful people.  Sometimes we are, but then we forget to say thank you!  In this weeks service we will express our thanks to God for the wonder of his creation, and commit ourselves anew to protect the environment and all that God has given!

Our readings this Sunday will be Joel 2:21-27, 1 Timothy 2:1-7, and Matthew 6:25-33, and we will be singing the hymns Come Ye Thankful People Come, For the Fruit of All Creation, Now thank we all our God, and We Plow the Fields and Scatter!

Past services and sermons can be viewed via the All Saints audio-visual page!

Advent Sunday

This will be upon us after only one more week!  On Sunday 2nd December we will mark the beginning of Advent, and the service will be followed by a special potluck – people are invited to bring Christmassy treats to share as we decorated the church for Christmas!

Festival of Carols

All is gradually coming together for our Festival of Carols!  It is going to be a wonderful night, and hopefully one which will raise a lot of money for the Youth Charity Foundation orphanage!  Posters and free tickets are now available at the church.  We will need lots of people to take these this week for placing in shops, businesses, schools, and Rimping supermarkets!  Please take some to share!

Transgender Day of Remembrance!

From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai

Remembering Together

Dear Friends,

This is the third week of our Season of Remembrance.  The 20th November is marked as the Transgender Day of Remembrance throughout the world.  This Sunday at All Saints, we will be joined by people from MPlus, the Chiang Mai LGBT advocacy group, to mark the day.  This year we have a list of 368 people who have been killed in the last twelve months because of who they are and how they appear.  It is far from a complete list, and most of the people listed are from the US and South and Central America, with a few from India, Pakistan, and Turkey.

Transgender people occur throughout the world and frequently suffer exclusion and marginalisation, leading to exploitation and abuse.  This week’s service is a chance for all of us to stand alongside these people in solidarity.

Our readings this Sunday will be 2 kings 23:1-2, 7-8, 11-12, Galatians 3:23-29, and Matthew 19:3-13, and we will be singing the hymns Stand up Stand up for Jesus, Lord We make this Cry for Freedom, Beauty for Brokenness, and Let Us Build a House!  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.

New House Group

Of course, we all have different experiences and knowledge about trans people, and for those who would like to know more, Ken and Emily Chase are hosting a get-together at their home next Wednesday, 21st November.  The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. and Elena Kelly will lead and share some of her experiences.


Pamela, Elena, Jufil, Me, and Ken, at the Chase Home!

After the very successful Lent Meetings, it is hoped that this will develop into a regular meeting for All Saints people who live to the north of Chiang Mai, with other groups later also developing.

Contact Emily on emilylschase@gmail.com for directions.

Festival of Carols

This Tuesday, Pamela Chase and I went to look at the Chiang Mai Christian School chapel to plan the decoration for our Festival of Carols – it is going to look amazing!  Then this Wednesday, I popped in to All Saints to hear the Lannacapella Choir rehearsals – they are already sounding amazing!  Bill Moeller and Chris Tananone are part of the choir and it looks like being the best performance yet!

It is going to be a wonderful night, and hopefully one which will raise a lot of money for the Youth Charity Foundation orphanage!  Posters and free tickets are now available at the church.  Please take some to share!

If you want to print your own, or share the poster, you can download the pdf of the poster here, and the tickets here!

Never Forget!

From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai

We pray for an end to all war!

WORSHIP BEGINS AT 9:30 AM THIS WEEK

Dear Friends,

This Sunday will mark the hundredth anniversary of the end of the First World War, and we will remember this in our worship this 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.

Immediately following this morning’s service at All Saints, we will travel down to the Chiang Mai Foreign Cemetery for the Remembrance Ceremony.   This will begin around 10:45 a.m. so that we can observe two minutes silence at 11 a.m.

Everyone is then invited to lunch at the Gymkhana Club.

Remembrance Sunday is in no way a day to celebrate war, it is a day to mourn, to commit ourselves to the goal that war should cease.  While wars rage around the world, particularly in Syria and Yemen, this may seem a futile goal, but we are called to never give up, and we believe in the future when there will be a new heaven and a new earth, and war will be no more!

Our readings this Sunday will be Isaiah 2:3-4, Revelation 21:1-6, Matthew 25:1-13, and we will be singing the hymns O God our help in Ages Past, Abide with Me, and The Day Thou gavest Lord is Ended!

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

Priesthood? Jesus – Great High Priest?

From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai

How is Jesus our Great High Priest?

.
Dear Friends,

Raised as a Methodist, I grew up in a church that put great emphasis on the priesthood of all believers, and that is correct for we all have direct access to God without the need for another mediator, and we can all pray for one another.  But what is priest, and are some especially called to the priesthood?  And what of Jesus, the one who is called our Great High Priest?  What does that mean, and what does it mean for us?  That will be at the centre of the message this week at All Saints!

Our scripture readings this Sunday will be Jeremiah 31:7-9, Hebrews 7:23-28, and Mark 10:46-52, and we will be singing the hymns All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee, Let us Break Bread Together, and And Can it be?

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

Low Service

Last week’s “Low Service” seemed to go well.  The feedback I have received so far was that it wasn’t reallythat low, and that it was nice to have some variety – and this from both low and high church people!  People also appreciated the intention to make all feel welcome and valued.

One former Roman Catholic shared how he hated bells in the communion, and one former Southern Baptist shared how much she appreciated them!!!

The Potluck to celebrate the 40th Wedding Anniversary of Pat and Julia was also a great success.  Thanks to Emily, Pamela, and Ken, for organising this, along with Pat and Julia!

A great Potluck!


Pat and Julia – cutting the cake again after 40 years!

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 salad potluck.  Please bring bread products and salad to share – contact Emily for details!

Keep Smiling!

LOW SERVICE AND POTLUCK THIS SUNDAY

Dear Friends,

One of the things I love about my Filipino friends is how they seem to delight in giving service with a smile.  Thailand is called the land of smiles, and I love the friendly smiles I get in the street here when you catch someone’s eye, but people from the Philippines really seem to delight in service!

That is the call on all of us as Christians. In this week’s Gospel reading Jesus says: “Whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be slave of all. For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.”  Our lives are called upon to be lives of service, and as I remember my dad, I cannot help but be inspired, for that is the life he led!  How much more is the life of Jesus a life of service for us to follow?

Low Service

This Sunday we will be having a special “low service”.  Many of our congregation come from non-Anglican or non-Catholic backgrounds.  Some are Methodist, Presbyterian, Baptist, or Quaker.

This week we will worship without candles, bells, and vestments, but in simplicity before God.  It will be a stately and reverent service, in the Anglican tradition, which I hope will be a sign of welcome to those in our congregation who are from a less liturgical tradition.  It will not become our regular mode of worship, but possibly, once a month, we would have such a service.

I will not be wearing vestments for the service, but will be wearing black clericals and a stole.  Our worship will continue to be led by the organ and we will sing our usual traditional hymns, but will be using a said liturgy from the Book of Common Prayer rather than a sung liturgy.

If this receives positive feedback, then we may have a similar service each third Sunday of the month, although not in November or December due to our Season of Remembrance and then Christmas!  Normal service will be resumed the following week!

This week we will also have a Potluck to celebrate the 40th Wedding Anniversary of the Wards!  Congratulations, Pat and Julia!  Please all bring food to share!

Our scripture readings this week will be Hebrews 5:1-10 and Mark 10:35-45, and we will be singing the hymns Let Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah, There’s a Spirit in the Air, O Jesus I have Promised, Take My Life and Let it Be, and Born in Song!

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

Festival of Carols 2018

We now have a place and date for our 2018 Festival of Carols.  (Renamed from Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols as there may not be nine, and people don’t know what lessons means, and also as we will vary a little from the exact format used previously!)

We will gather at 7 p.m. on Saturday 15th December in the Chiang Mai Christian School Chapel.  This was the original First Church, and is the oldest church building in Chiang Mai!  It sits on the banks of the Ping River just down from the Nawarat Bridge.  The event will be in aid of the Youth Charity Foundation – the orphanage we hosted at our Harvest Festival on the farm.

Put the event in your diary now, and if you like singing why not join the Lannacapella Choir?  They meet at All Saints at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, and have begun rehearsals for the Christmas event.  Contact Chris on christinebaw@gmail.com if you would like to join!

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.  All are welcome to join us as we share the presence of the risen Jesus in our lives!  We hope to see you soon and that you will enjoy worshipping with us,

Trust & Obey?

From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai

Can you really trust God?

Dear Friends,

We live in a fast changing world, a world where governments seem unreliable and big business untrustworthy.  Can you really trust that bank or your pension provider?  It is easy to wonder just what, or who, we can really trust.

And what about God? Is God really to be trusted?  After all, prayers are not always answered and good people suffer!  We will tackle this difficult issue this Sunday at All Saints, starting at the beginning and asking “Who is God anyway?”

Our scripture readings this week will be Amos 5:10-15, Hebrews 4:12-16, and Mark 10:17-31, and we will be singing the hymns Let All the World in Every Corner Sing, All to Jesus I surrender, King of Kings Majesty, and All My Hope on God Is Founded!  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.

Low Service

The service on Sunday 21st October will be a little different.  We will have a paired-down liturgy, without bells, vestments, and liturgical music.  This is to help accommodate those who are used to a more simple service.  If it goes well, we may have a similar service on the third Sunday of each month—though not in November or December!  Let me have your feedback!
