All Saints News Sheet

If you are new to All Saints and are considering making us your spiritual home, please pick up a welcome brochure at the back of Church or better still, please say “hello” to one of our Welcomers. You can also contact our Church Office (admin@allsaints.ch) if you have any questions. You can also find tonnes of information about our Church on this website.

In common with the rest of the Diocese in Europe, we have robust procedures to ensure the safety of young children and vulnerable adults.  Our Safeguarding Team comprises Bernice Reid, Louise Bowley and Sue Shaw.  Please contact them with any queries or concerns.  The new email for the Safeguarding Team is safeguarding@allsaints.ch.

A supervised Crèche will be available today following the Worship Songs! Crèche will be supervised every 4th Sunday of the month but unsupervised for all other Sundays. Parents, please speak to one of the Welcomers for more information

As we are all aware, there is a growing concern regarding the spread of the coronavirus.  Conscious that we need to monitor this as it develops, and in light of advice from both the Diocese and local health agencies, we would offer the following (in the short term) as we gather each Sunday in worship.

As our hands are far more likely to be a source of germs than lips, please be meticulous in proper hand washing. On Sunday, you will find antiseptic gels throughout the Church building. Thanks for using them.  With respect to Communion and our use of the Common Cup, the Bishop writes, “Should a communicant not wish to drink from the chalice then he or she ought to receive the consecrated bread alone. It is Anglican teaching that to receive the sacrament in one kind only is to receive the sacrament in its entirety.”

Please do not hesitate to speak to the Chaplain or Church Wardens if you have any questions.

There will be a short service of Holy Communion, marking the beginning of Lent on Wednesday 26th February at 19h00 in the Church.

This Lent you are invited to join the rest of the All Saints family in journeying through Lent in the company of the booklet, “Care for God’s Creation”, a 40 day reflection for adults and families. With weekly themes and prayers shaped around the first Genesis account of creation, it explores the urgent need for humans to value and protect the abundance God has created. Each day offers a Bible reading, a short reflection and an action to help you live in greater harmony with God, neighbour and nature. You can pick up a booklet at the back of Church from Sunday 16th February or download the #LIVELENT app here.

Your child(ren) is/are to invited to come and join in the fun at the first FunFriday Bible Club event of 2020. It will take place on Friday 28 February starting at 4.30pm through to 6.30pm. Open to all children between ages 4-10 years.

Following the Celebration Sunday on January 26th, it was decided to relaunch the Contact magazine- never fear, it is not disappearing – but the number of issues and focus will be slightly different.

Instead of 4 issues, we will not have 3 – end of April, August and December. Also we will no longer have a specific focus but rather the magazine will be ‘windows’ on our Church life.

As always we welcome any contributions – big or small. Deadline: Friday 17th April.

As many of you are aware, this years theme is ROCKY RAILROAD and to set the scene of a good old-fashioned locomotive and caboose for the kids that will be learning that “Jesus’ power pull us through” we need some supplies to pull it off!

So the following items (at least for the moment) would be really useful but not all compulsory:-

• sturdy cardboard boxes (any size but good condition to then be able to cut up as required)
• old air vent (tumble dryer kind)
• large cardboard boxes (dishwasher/washing machine-dryer appliance size) 3 or 4 including the protection if in cardboard
• 20” tall flower pot (plastic would be better)
• round push-lights – battery operated x 2
• any spare roof guttering that be cut in two to make a train track
• any spare 4×2 wood batten pieces (decent size length that can be cut to size required)
• a slinky that can potentially be painted..
• 3 or 4 Christmas trees (no decorations required) yes I know you’ve just put them away….!
• metal beer bottle tops (approx 60 needed) or coffee capsules
• old style suitcases-trunks (6)
• large buckets (the type that the salt for the road is sold in) with lid if possible
• spare interior flat paint: pillar-box red / gray / black / green / white
• 2 x 140l fiber drums with lid – these are normally made of recycled paper or coconut fibre and are used to transport pharmaceutical items or powdered items – this item may be difficult to get – a good start might be anyone who has contact with a pharmaceutical company, Broc chocolate factory or Nestle PTC Orbe, Serono-Merck don’t use the fiber version only plastic)

And lastly….
• your time: if you have a few hours to spare would love to have help with setting up the decoration on Monday 20 April from 9:30 onwards til finished!

Please advise Clare Camoeira (clarecamoeira@me.com) or Calen Gayle (allsaintsyouthministry@gmail.com) what you might be able to provide so it can be crossed off the list and please ensure that any items needing to be returned are marked with your name.

Can you help with the first step towards a supervised Crèche? Our goal is to provide a supervised Crèche on the fourth Sunday of the month (23rd) for the next few months with the hope of extending this to twice a month on the 2nd & 4th Sundays of the month.

What needs to happen to make this a reality? Firstly, we need volunteers. Each Crèche needs two (potentially three depending on numbers of children) volunteers, one of whom needs to be Safeguarded. Could this be you?

Everyday Creativity
Per-Ole Lind

The world tell us, that art is either for the elite – or for the masses. It’s either high in the galleries or wide in streaming: If you’re loved by the chosen few, or by the masses: You’re an artist.
But what if you’re neither? How do we navigate art from a Christian angle? Is art really supposed to be either success or exclusivity?
