Hi All Saints Family,
It’s Craig here with the second of what will be my trilogy of introductory messages to you via the newsletter.
My family and I are all continuing to settle in. Thanks for your continued support and prayers, we’ve really appreciated them over these past few weeks! I’ve also really appreciated meeting several of you already, whether formal meetings, or in the café, Sunday or just out and about – please bear with me as I try to learn all your names, there’s more of you than me! Gemma and I look forward to saying hello to those of you we haven’t yet seen, so if you do see us, please don’t hesitate to introduce yourselves!
It was a joy to be at both services last Sunday and for us to be officially introduced (and interrogated!) at both the 9am and 10:45am services. Special thanks to everyone who was involved in the setup, pack-down and involvement in both services. I especially wanted to highlight Rising-Gen – you are all brilliant! We are so blessed to have some amazing young people in our church and we really value your ministry to us. My prayer is that as a church we will continue to pray for and support our young members as they follow Jesus and step into the calling he has for their lives – they teach us so much about God’s kingdom!
Lastly, I’m hoping it will be announced either this coming Sunday and/or in the newsletter that there is going to be a church family meet up after the 10:45am on 17th October – this is being arranged by the amazing Rachel Collier and will be a great time for us as a church community to come together, eat and have some fun. I really hope you can make it – more details will be available very soon.
May you know that there is always a place for you here in the All Saints family, and most importantly remember, as we explored last Sunday, that God would search the ends of the earth to bring you home to him (Check out Luke 15v1-7).
Love and prayers,
Vicar of All Saints, Hoole
