All Saints News Sheet

The large majority of our Sunday services at All Saints have the very same component parts. This is intentional as each component part is meant to be something we take with us in the week ahead. This sermon series will explore how 7 of these components are actually in reality life long habits that not only have the power to shape us but the also the world around us.

Sunday, 14th May, was slightly different from our normal Sunday schedule. In place of our two morning services, the two congregations came together to celebrate what has been happening in our Church Family over the past year. This was followed by a shortened AGM where we received the Financial Report for 2016 and also appointed members of our Church to our Chaplaincy Council. Minutes of our meeting will be circulated around the membership very soon.

The following people were elected last Sunday – Maxine Kibble & Richard Jefferiss-Jones (Church Wardens); Alex Bates (Church Council); Claire Daglish and Mark Jones (Archdeaconry Reps).

Going forward our Church Council Members are ….
Richard Jefferiss-Jones (Warden)
Maxine Kibble (Warden)

Claire Daglish (Archdeaconry Representative)
Mark Jones (Archdeaconry Representative)

Liz Andrews (Council Member)
Alex Bates (Council Member)
Louise Bowley (Council Member)
Andrea Bruce (Council Member)
Michael Cotton (Council Member)
Muriel Ijere Crot (Council Member)
Ivor Ligertwood (Council Member)
Sue Shaw (Council Member)
Mike Stead (Council Member)
Carl Wahlers (Council Member)

The latest Neuchatel church magazine is centered around Easter as they approach Holy Week, with articles by Ken and Roy on the theme of suffering and grief but also on its resolution with Christ’s conquest of death through the Resurrection. Continuing the topic of the Reformation, of which we are celebrating the 500th anniversary this year, the magazine is focussing on events in Neuchâtel this spring and summer, and on the Huguenot connection.

Their website address has changed and is now www.neuchatel-english-church.org
