All Saints wants to grow the number of volunteers responsible for the Sound Desk at either the 09h00 or 10h30 service. This service opportunity is open to anyone and will involve some training in addition to working alongside the current team. If this would interest you, please contact Clive (email@example.com).
Children and Youth
Working with Children and Young People is a daunting task, the noise, the energy, the chaos. But it is also one of the most rewarding and fulfilling roles there is within the life of the a church. We are at a point within the life of All Saints that we need more volunteers to help with our youth and children’s work. If you can make juice, or can play games, or can lead a discussion group, or can make crafts I would love to meet you. Can you contact Michael Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org or on my mobile 0793362963 or talk to him during coffee downstairs.
The Flower Rota for the Summer is on the board at the back of church. Please sign up if you would like to help with this creative ministry.

Michael was the pioneer behind “Back to Church Sunday” in the UK. However, in doing so, he discovered that there was a vital missing link in the chain – church members were not inviting their friends and family back to church. In response, he has developed training to help church members grow in this vital area of discipleship. Join Michael for this entertaining, engaging and equipping experience as together we seek to grow in being a church that invites others.

It has a mix of articles of a religious nature and others of human interest – with of course a few jokes to get you smiling! – with the hope to keep you scotched to your computer screen … or tablet, as you laze on your balcony or beside your hotel swimming pool!
