Sign up today for Women Together special event

Women Together invite you to join us THIS Saturday 26 November from 8.00-9.30pm in church for an evening of friendship and fun in the lead up to the Christmas season. There'll be a chance to be creative with a simple idea for a gift, along with mulled wine and festive treats. We'll hear from Ali Bourne how hope can be found on the most unlikely journeys. This is a perfect opportunity to invite along a friend.  Sign up by following the link:

Carrie Britton

Please do come this Sunday 27 November when we will say a heartfelt 'thank you' to Carrie, our Seniors' Pastor of five years, who will be retiring. Although we will thank Carrie at all our services, we'll make a bigger presentation at the 11.15am service. Carrie's last Tiger@Ten will be on Tuesday 29 November. She retires at the end of the month, after which she and Nigel will take a well-deserved holiday!  We are, of course, delighted that Carrie and Nigel will remain part of the All Saints Church family. Well done, Carrie!

November PCC Update

The Parochial Church Council gathered on Monday for a short meeting. It received a number of regular reports – from the Tiger Project Group, Finance Committee, Mission Development Group, Staff Resourcing Group and Safeguarding Officer. The PCC approved the church's Risk Assessment, aware that there is further work to do on it. I brought a number of matters to the PCC's attention, including: a report on the recent Sussex Gospel Partnership Conference ('A Better Story'); a report on a recent training session for the staff team on healthy ministry and healthy church leadership led by Marcus Honeysett of 'Living Leadership'; and a brief update on matters facing the Church of England ahead of the General Synod in early 2023. We spent some time praying together about what we had discussed. We agreed that the PCC would not need to meet in December. Our next meeting will therefore be 16 January 2023.
