Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful; and kindle in us the fire of your love.

Diocesan Strategic Planning Seminar

The Diocese will be holding an information and dialogue seminar regarding their strategic plan entitled, “Set Sail”.  This seminar is open to all three parishes within our community, and will be held on the evening of June 8th, from 7:30-9:30pm, and will be hosted at the St Peters Parish Hall in Upper Gullies.

This is an opportunity to hear the Bishop speak about this strategic plan, and for him to hear feedback from all of us - both positive and negative.  Please try to attend.

Now the Christian faith is this, that we worship one God in Trinity, and the Trinity in unity; So the Father is God, the Son God, the Holy Spirit God; and yet there are not three Gods, but one God.  He therefore that would be saved, let him thus think of the Trinity.  The Creed of Saint Athanasius Com

Open Mic Night

All Saints CBS will be hosting an Open Mic Night on Saturday evening, June 10th.  The doors open at 7:00pm, and the show starts at 7:30pm

Why not mark your calendar for this fun filled event, and at the same time you will be helping your Parish.

Luncheon and Card Game

The ladies at All Saints CBS will be hosting another luncheon and card game on Thursday, June 15th, starting at noon.  This is just opportunity for you to mark your calendars, as the details will be announced shortly. 

This event always draws a crowd, and a great time is had by all.

Restrictions Lifted on Common Cup and Baptism Water

Effective May 28, 2023, the Bishop has given permission for the return of the shared chalice at the Holy Eucharist, and the sharing of the baptismal water among candidates within the liturgy of Holy Baptism.  This is only for those who wish to receive, and it does not mean that anyone who is uncomfortable with receiving the chalice must receive it - it is entirely left to the person's own discretion.  The practice of intinction (dipping the host into the wine) is not permitted.  Also, the sharing of consecrated water from the font among multiple baptismal candidates is now permitted, with the priest wearing a mask and sanitizing their hands between candidates.  If a parent is uncomfortable, they may ask for separate consecrated water.  Once again, nobody should feel uncomfortable asking to be excluded from this open practice.

Bible Study

A three-week Bible study of the Holy Spirit will be held on Thursday mornings at 11:15am, beginning May 4th.

Digital Roadside Bulletin Board

All Saints is very active in our community and beyond, and it is important that we reach as many people as possible.  Our list of mission work is very extensive: Liturgical Services, Mission & Outreach, our weekly Tea Room fellowship, our various fundraising activities including Take-Out Dinners and Craft Fairs, Catering, Hall Rentals, as well as community service events such as Blood Donor Clinics, Flu Shot Clinics, COVID vaccination clinics, and the list goes on.  And there is also the opportunity for a new revenue stream by selling public advertisement space.  To date we have collected $30,335 towards an ‘expected target’ of $48,000. We welcome your generous support.

Alongsiders' Monthly Prayer Schedule

External link opens in new tab or window

Our Alongsider's Team would like to make their current monthly prayer services available to you simply by External link opens in new tab or windowclicking here.  To visit all past issues click External link opens in new tab or windowhere.

Alongsiders are members of our Parish who, due to circumstances of sickness, mobility, age, etc., can not physically attend a worship service at our Church.  However, they still want to be part of the worship, and where possible, to help from home.  The Alongsiders program accomplishes this.  Each month, a service for each Sunday is prayerfully put together, similar to the in-Church service, and is then delivered to each Parishioner as part of a home visit.  A vital part of our ministry is ‘praying alongside’ our brothers and sisters in Christ.  Currently we have 14 members in the Parish of All Saints.
