Congratulations to all the family including grandparents Katie and Laurence Trigwell and great grandparents Annette and Gordon Scoble on the birth of Lilibeth Joy Trigwell, born on 28 May weighing 7lb 6oz to Dan and Lauren.
Thank you from Lu Seymour
Lu is now on the long road to recovery, after extensive surgery and nearly nine months in ICU. She faces many challenges, but is being wonderfully supported by two specialist nurses and physios and family and friends.
“There are simply no words to express our thanks for all the love, support, care of Roger and most importantly all your prayers during what was a very tough time – we face this new chapter in our lives secure in the knowledge of God holding us tightly and taking us by the hand and we praise Him for each and every one of you.” Lu and Roger
A service of Thanksgiving for Rita will be held here at All Saints on Monday 13 June at 1.30pm, any church family are most welcome to attend.
The funeral of Barbara Phillips will be held here at All Saints on Wednesday 15 June at 1.00pm. Wendy, Barbara's daughter and her family, would like to thank members of All Saints for their faithful loving and prayer for Barbara whilst she was a resident in Compton House for many years.

In previous years we have joined with national and local events for Thy Kingdom Come, a global prayer initiation between Ascension and Pentecost. Although we've not planned any formal events this year, you will find lots of ways to join in this prayer movement at the wesbite - www.thykingdomcome.global
This September we'd love to welcome two ministry trainees to come and learn with us. If you know someone who might be interested in this training opportunity please do share our advert with them. https://ninethirtyeight.org/job/asl_mt/
Live Stream Plans
Since the start of Covid lockdowns it's been great to offer one or two live-streamed services each week. This term the demand for live streamed services has significantly decreased, with many now able to attend church services in-person again. It's also been increasingly difficult to resource this service as many of our helpers are no longer able to help. Starting in June, we will move to just broadcasting one service on a Sunday, initially the 11.15am, and then following the 6pm series in the book of Jonah. Our last regular live streamed service will be on Sunday 17th July, at which point we will pause for the summer holidays and assess both the demand for services in the Autumn and the volunteer support to help acheive this. If you have any questions please get in touch with Hugh Bourne - email@example.com

Please help Five Talents raise £30,000
Last year many of you helped Five Talents raise £11,000 by recording the distances you walked, cycled, swam or covered during golf rounds (as long as you walked, not used a buggy) over a week. Five Talents are repeating the exercise but, this time, for the month of June. There is no cost to you nor any sponsorship requirement from you except your time and exercising as there are sponsors willing to contribute £1 for every mile covered, but you do need to sign up. To sign up and read about the event click: https://www.fivetalents.org.uk/tour-de-talents-2022#sign-up and, thereby, give a hand up to the marginalised in East Africa wanting to start their own business to provide for their family and to educate their children.
