Monthly Prayer Meeting

Last month when we gathered to pray it was wonderful to see so many join us. Around 90 people gathered in the church building and another 30 joined the prayer meeting via Zoom – being 'in' the main meeting and then breaking off into their own small groups (what we sometimes call 'hybrid meeting').
Do come back again this month, Wednesday 23 March at 8.00pm in the church building – come from 7.45pm if you'd like a hot drink (bring a cup!). It would be great if you can join us as we sing, hear God's word, and pray together.
If you'd like to join via Zoom, you can do so with these details:

When: Saturday 26 March at 10.00am
Who:   Men of all ages – bringing scissors and garden secateurs
Why:    To show our appreciation of women at Mothering Sunday services
What:  Working together to create 200 posies to give away
Also: Wednesday 23 March 
Calling men and women gardeners and those who have friends with gardens! For our posies we also need tons of greenery cut into short lengths and put into deep water for 48 hours. Can you deliver your greenery to the Stable building anytime on Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24.
For many years Herta Kingdom and her small team has spent days preparing posies for women as a thank you for all the ways in which they serve in the church. Herta will be away for a much-deserved break this year. Can the men at All Saints rise to the challenge of creating 200 posies? 
I’ll meet you all on Saturday 26 at 10.00 at the Stables and let’s see how long it takes us to get this glorious task done! Thank you. Carrie Britton
