Marriage Course

On the four Thursday evenings in June, James and Fiona Mobbs are going to be running a marriage course. The teaching is done via video and you will also enjoy a home cooked meal during the evening. There is no group work and the only person you would talk to is your partner.
Attending this course is not a sign that your marriage or relationship is in trouble – quite the opposite really. It is an indication that you value it and want to invest time and effort into it. Whether you are newlyweds or have been together for years this course is a fantastic opportunity for you to enrich your relationship.
There will be a small charge per couple, but please do not let costs be an obstacle.
More details will follow, but if you are interested please do let Sue Cooke know, book the dates in your diary now and start to arrange babysitters if required.
If this course is not for you, but you would like to enable others to attend by offering childcare as a gift to one of the couples please do let Sue Cooke know that too.

Bible Course

If you are still trying to get to grips with the Bible, how all the books fit together, why it is not simply in chronological order, what the different types of literature within it are then Janet has the course for you! Over seven Wednesday mornings Janet will be running the Bible Society course which uses a mixture of video teaching, a manual and group discussion. The dates are, May 1, 8, 15, 22, June 5, 12, 19 & July 3.

Accessible and interactive, it will enhance and inform your ongoing Bible study, whether you are new to the Bible or want to go deeper. Using a unique storyline, the course shows how the key events, books and characters all fit together. You’ll get to see the BIG picture and discover how the Bible applies to your life.

There will be a small charge of £5 for this course to cover the cost of the manual. Please contact Janet directly if you would like to join the course.

Mothers’ Union

On Sunday April 28th we have a service to celebrate 80 years of the Mothers’ Union at All Saints and we will also be marking the end of our branch and its closure. All the current members will remain within the MU, but they will become diocesan members and whilst they may still meet informally and do some activities together we will not have our own branch.

The MU has served this church faithfully over many years and so in gratitude we are having a special collection to buy a new Bible which we will present to them and which will contain the names of all the past members. This will then be presented back to the church for our use.

Our collection on Mothering Sunday will be given over to this and so please do come prepared to give generously as a sign of your gratitude. If you are unable to be there on Sunday but would like to make a contribution please drop that in to the office or Vicarage by the end of next week (Friday 5th April) so we can get the Bible ordered.

Confirmation Service at All Saints

This year on Sunday 2nd June at 10am we will be hosting a confirmation service and will be joined by Bishop Jo. This is a very special service and it is a long time since we have hosted one. If you have not been confirmed but are interested in what it means then please let me know.  The first stage will be for me to gather everyone together and talk about what confirmation is and then you can decide if you definitely want to be confirmed. An initial expression of interest does not mean a firm commitment and if you decide not to go ahead then that is fine, but please do not miss out on the opportunity to be confirmed here at All Saints if you would like to.

Exodus Relaunch

Friday 26th April, at the Dibbles with pizza! Look out for a separate flyer with more details. In the meantime talk to Nigel, Amanda or Elaine or contact the church office for more info.

Christian Aid Week May 12th - 18th

Please consider taking part in the house to house collection this year. Packs will be available from the end of April in church. This is an opportunity to knock on the doors of many of our neighbours and reach out to them in a practical way. You have to be 16 to collect envelopes back, but anyone can post them through doors and it is fine for children to accompany adults when collecting them back.

More details will be available in the May newsletter and on the dedicated web page, but please sign up for a road / round by yourself or with a friend and collect a pack when they are available.

Many thanks, Dave Senneck
