NOTICES 20 May 2018 Welcome to All Saints To find out more about All Saints please speak to a member of the Welcome Team.
You are very welcome to our service today. Please join us for coffee and tea served afterwards. The Welcome Area at the back is ideal for young children who might be unsettled. If you are new or have recently started attending, please take a 'Welcome Pack'. It would help us to get to know you if you could fill in the details card and hand it to a member of the All Saints team. There will be no collection taken during the services but there are plates at the main doors for those who would like to contribute to the Church. Gift Aid envelopes can be found with the donation plates. Please consider filling one in and the Inland Revenue will increase your gift by 25%! Most sermons are recorded and are available for download from the church website (www.allsaintsecclesall.org.uk). You can use your computer to listen to the sermons or they can be downloaded. All songs covered by CCLI have been reproduced under CCL Licence No. 5119.
LOVING GOD. LIVING LIFE. SHARING FAITH.
MISSION SUNDAY Today is Mission Sunday, an opportunity to learn more about the Mission Partners supported by All Saints Ecclesall and offer both prayer and financial support. We will be welcoming guest preachers to our 9.15am, 11am and 6pm services. During our Sunday morning services we will hear from Paul Hackwood, Executive Chair for the Church Urban Fund. In the evening at our 6pm service the speaker will be from the Snowdrop Project, a Sheffield based charity which provides long-term support to empower survivors of human trafficking. Some of our Youth will be involved in this service so there is no Xenia tonight. We encourage our Youth to attend the 6pm service to support those involved and to and pray for the vital work done by this organisation. The Church family are invited to donate to help financially support our mission partners. Gift Aid envelopes were distributed last Sunday for this purpose, if you need another envelope they are available in the Welcome Area. We would like to thank the Mission Support Group, Christian Aid coordinators and all of the volunteers involved in the special events and services over the last 10 days. FROM THE VICAR Two Dates to Save: CHRISTIAN VOICES IN THE CONTEMPORARY WORLD Thursday 7 June, 7.45pm, Church. We were very much looking forward to Bishop Pete Wilcox opening this year’s 2018 lent programme on 28 February. Sadly we had to cancel because of the snow. Our rearranged date is Thursday 7 June. As usual the evening will begin at 7.45pm with tea and coffee provided from 7.30pm. He will speak for around 45 minutes and then to answer questions for up to 45 minutes. His theme will be ‘Mutual flourishing in a place of disagreement– what does this have to say to the world?’ How do we understand and hold disagreement theologically within the church? How does this impact of our mission in the world? The evening will then end with a reception. Save the date! OPEN PCC MEETING FOR ALL THE CHURCH FAMILY Saturday 9 June, 10.00am. A key part of my presentation at the APCM was an update on the PCC’s thinking about a possible extension to the church building. We are still very much at the beginning. But are now ready to share our conversation with the wider congregation. More than that we want to work with you to develop our vision for the church building we need as a multi-generation church family. On Saturday 9 June from 10.00am to 1.00pm we will be holding an Open PCC Meeting in the church to which everyone is invited. Together we will need to start asking: Is this the right vision for the building? What are our needs? What about the cost? What about the halls? What about the crypt? What about the community provision at the new Clifford All Saints School? How do they all fit together? Please put Saturday 9 June in your diary. CHURCH NEWS RETIRED MEN’S GROUP Wednesday 30 May, 2.30-4.00pm, 33 Montrose Road. Please bring a picture that has meaning to you and about which you can talk briefly.

PRAYERS FOR MISSION ST MICHAEL’S CHURCH BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA Please pray urgently for healing of the divisions which are splitting Argentina at this time, for an end to the galloping inflation which is afflicting its citizens. Pray too for the continuing work of the Friday Social Action with mothers and children from one of the shanty towns. NEPAL Four Christian Churches have been attacked over a five-day period by unidentified assailants. The attacks, which began on the 9 May, targeted three churches in Western Nepal and one in the East. Although no-one was killed in the attacks, these developments show a worrying increase in hostilities towards Christian groups in Nepal. Also Christians are being falsely accused of conversion, leading to arrest and prosecution. Please pray for protection.
