Dear All Saints family,

It is a real joy to be serving you in this season.

Many thanks to the All Saints Leaders who attended a really enjoyable lunch with Elena and me last Sunday. There were a great many shared insights into how we can take our service to the next level Thank you for your commitment to the ongoing ministry of All Saints church.

I also want to extend a very warm and heartfelt welcome to those who have joined us recently. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me, Canon Susie Skillen or Cheryl Etu at the office of you need any help at all in discovering the place the Lord has made for you in the family.

On Sunday 17th November we will begin a brand-new series under the title, “Encounter” where we will take a fresh look at the grace of God in the spiritual disciplines we are encouraged to walk in as we live out our faith; all of them gifted to us by God, to enable to us to encounter the person of Jesus more deeply.

A few other dates for your calendar:

Saturday, November 2nd: Join us as we join our Amesbury neighbors in the Village of Church Fairs. There will be plenty of opportunities to get involved and help out as we open, wide our doors and welcome our neighbors into All Saints. For more information, contact Patty Champion or Janet McBrien.

Diocesan Wide 24/7 Prayer Movement: One of the great encouragements from the 2019 Clergy Conference was the renewed fervor for prayer. So, in advance of the 2019 Synod we will be joining together for a 24/7 prayer initiative. This work of intercession will be for the outpouring of God’s Spirit across New England, the re-evangelization of the Northeast, and the establishment of God’s vision, strength, and provision for the diocese.

How do we participate? We are encouraging all clergy and every member of every parish and mission to sign up for at least one of the hour prayer time-slots (see link to the 24/7 2019 Prayer calendar: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0B4AABA62BA4F85-adne)

Saturday, November 16th: SYNOD: Always North – Vision to Action – please come and be inspired and encouraged by all that God is doing across the Diocese and His vision for the new season.
