All Saints News Sheet

If you love great food from around the world and would like to connect with other members of All Saints the Fellowship Lunch will be right up your street. It happens once a month on the fourth Sunday of every month and follows the 10h30 service. Everyone is welcome. Please bring either a main course or dessert to share.

We kick off a new series of talks on Sunday 19th entitled “King’s Cross”, a journey through John 18 & 19 and the hours leading up to the crucifixion. Go with Jesus as he is arrested in Gethsemane; stand with him on trial before Pilate; and finally stay with him as he takes the final steps to the Cross. Be inspired, emboldened and humbled but above fall in love once again with Jesus, the friend of sinners.

Don’t forget that on Sunday 26th March the clocks will “spring” forward one hour. Sadly it means that we will all have one hour less in bed but the great news is, winter is coming to an end and spring and summer are on their way!

The Tuesday Break Alpha Course happily continues on Tuesdays this January at 14h30 in the Church Hall. Each week there will be a twenty minute video, followed by a time for questions and discussion and a cup of tea. Everyone is welcome.

Our 10th Holiday Bible Club will be held during Holy Week.

Spaces will be limited and on a first come, first serve basis.

During the month of June this year, this community pledged over CHF60,000 to ensure the reappointment of a Children’s and Youth Minister. This was a fantastic answer to prayer and as a result of God’s grace and your generosity we are looking forward to welcoming Michael Anderson into the All Saints at the beginning of January. Thank you to those who have already realised your pledges. We are looking forward to all the Pledges kicking in this January in time for Michael’s arrival. If you would like more information about giving to the ministry of All Saints, please do not hesitate to get in contact with Andrea Bruce (swissfamilybruce@yahoo.co.uk) who heads up our Finance Team.

Michael Anderson, our new Children’s and Youth Minister will arrive on Thursday 5th January. Here are two ways in which you can help welcome him to Switzerland.

Invite him for Supper … especially if you have children or young people. Not only will you be offering hospitality to Michael but you will also give him an opportunity to connect with our family and children and young people he is here to serve.

Take him Out …. Going to a movie? Going skiing? Why not invite Michael to join you. As a matter of interest, Michael is a provincial level tennis player if anyone wants a lesson!

Contact Clive for more details (cliveatkinson@bluewin.ch).

Our Treasurer, Andrea Bruce, gave us feedback recently on the current financial position of All Saints, in particular, the outcome from the Pledge Day 2016. Please see here for more information.
