Easter Sunday Joy!

Easter Sunday was a joyful end to a wonderful weekend of celebrating all that God has accomplished for us, and for the world, through his Son Jesus Christ; from the Agape meal on Maundy Thursday, to thought provoking and moving moments on Good Friday to the sheer joy and exhilaration shared on Easter Sunday. This season has allowed us to renew our commitment as a church family to centre our life firmly on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. Bishop Richard certainly left us in no doubt that the......

First for Forums

Its been great to get the forums off the ground in the last week. All forums have met and are beginning to evaluate different areas of our church family life and see how God might lead us forward in the future. We are a busy church but blessed with many willing and able volunteers to make everything possible. The forums are about mobilising the maximum number of volunteers for works of service in the church and community. However, they are also about developing a sense of ownership and responsibility for the work......

YEAR of the BIBLE

Throughout the Diocese, as the Church year begins again, we are being encouraged to engage in the Year of the Bible. At All Saints our first reaction may be – ‘well every year is a year of the Bible’. I hope this is true, but if you’re anything like me, it is easy to take for granted what we hold dear in life; easy to assume the everything important is in place as they always have been. However, we are easily mistaken in life and if nothing else, this year gives us the opportunity......

Going for Growth - FAQs!

Saints’ Together Sunday It was great to enjoy time together on 6th November as a whole church family. Being all in the same place at the same place for a number of hours reminded us of our common aim to grow together in Christ as his church and fulfil his calling on our life together. What we asked of each other The main thrust of the presentation to the church family centred on the need for us to support the work of All Saints’ by ‘each playing our part’. This comes from......

The Truth of the Gospels

I received the question today, ‘How do we know the Bible isn’t a story like Beowulf?’ The question came from a primary school child who had been learning about Beowulf that morning. It’s a good question though isn’t it? We were talking about the Gospels at the time and so we’ll limit our answer to the truth of the Gospels here as well. There are two points that are worth considering. First, sources. The opinion of most people who study the Gospels is that Mark was written first (60s AD), followed by......

Reflections from a Holiday Club first timer

I’d heard about All Saints’ Holiday Club. All good things you understand. Upon arriving in Eastbourne it was a good way for our children to immerse themselves in Eastbourne life, as well as a good way to get to know newly met classmates who happened to be well represented. Little did I expect that four Holiday Clubs later I would be thrown into the thick of this week of madness, having to don the chainmail of the Black Knight by day and having paint thrown at me by night! It has been......

All Saints had a wonderful four days while the flower festival lasted. There was much fun and laughter and a great deal of cake. We welcomed over 650 visitors and met some delightful and interesting people. We even met a couple from New York, although they didn’t fly over especially for our event. We raised sufficient funds to recoup our costs, and divide £300 equally between our flower fund,our organ restoration fund and the Winter Night Shelter appeal. A huge ‘thank you’ is due to all who contributed in so many ways......

He is risen! Alleluia!

One of the great things about the Anglican Church is that it calls for six weeks of Easter celebrations. And why not! The resurrection of Jesus is the ground-breaking, life-changing news at the heart of the Christian message. We enjoyed a wonderful Easter weekend at All Saints celebrating and thinking more about the death and resurrection of Jesus – a passover Supper, three hours at the cross, a very moving performance of the Messiah and an uplifting Easter Sunday together. Robert has thanked everyone who gave so much of themselves in helping in the......
