Welcome to All Saints today, 20 May 2018

…. to All Saints this morning.

 Today is a special day when we celebrate the moment 2000 years ago when the Holy Spirit was poured out on the first disciples.  It’s Pentecost Sunday and at all our services today we’ll be focussing on the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of Jesus, the first disciples and in our own lives.

 At 8.00 and 10.30 we’ll be starting our new sermon series, Spirit Empowered Mission, looking at Jesus’ mandate in Luke chapter 4.  Today Andrew our vicar will be speaking on ‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon me’.

 Then at Breakfast@9, Dr James Bennett will be continuing our series on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit – today appropriately enough, he will be speaking about the gift of healing.

 Today is the final day of our ten days of prayer, Thy Kingdom Come.  And this afternoon we’ll be having our annual Churches Together Pentecost Celebration Service at St Mary’s at 3.30.  After the service do stay on for tea and games on the lawns outside.

 It is really good to have you with us – a special welcome if you are here for the first time.  Do introduce yourself and enjoy some tea or coffee before and after the services.  You can find out more about All Saints from our vicar, Andrew, and by checking out the info on the leaflet rack near the entrance.  And if you’d like prayer ministry the team will be on hand near the front at the end of the 10.30 service.
