THE CHOIR ARE BACK

We welcome the All Saints' choir back from their annual break.

 

A WEDDING IN THE TEAM
Deacon Jennifer will be getting married in All Saints Church at 4.30pm on Friday 15th September.
It will be helpful if we could have some idea of how many people will be there.
Please add your name to the lists in our churches if you are able to attend the service in church.

 

A PASTORAL ASSISTANT AT ALL SAINTS

As part of its programme of mission and outreach All Saints PCC has decided to employ Tori (the student who confirmed by Bishop Jonathan on Pentecost Sunday)
as a pastoral assistant for the next year.

Monetary aid to cover about 50% of the cost has already been promised; but if anyone wishes to support this project please speak to David Gray (AS Treasurer)

 We also need to find accommodation from September until next summer for Tori; if anyone is able to help with this, please speak to Fr Nick, or the All Saints wardens as soon as possible.

The PCC hopes that this may be the start of a larger scheme, and are seeking outside funding from the Diocesan Development Fund (from the sale of Glenfall House),

for a five-year programme aimed at students who wish to explore possible ministry and service to the church.

5th October - Diocese of Gloucester Training Opportunities Dementia Friendly Church

9.30am – 3.30pm at Gloucester Farmers Club, Greville Close, Gloucester, GL2 9RG
As we live longer ministry to the elderly produces greater challenges. In particular providing spiritual support for the lonely,
those living with dementia and the families and carers who seek to support them.
Often a better understanding of the related physical and mental frailties can make it much easier to provide the right support.
This day will cover an overview of ministry to the elderly, how to support those living with dementia and the impact on spiritual care.
It will then explore how we can make churches and our worship more dementia friendly.
The day is open to clergy and laity alike. Cost £10 (including lunch).
