The Inside Column 9/10

Good morning and a warm welcome to all.

Last week’s fundraiser movie The Holy Roller was a great success with over 100 people coming along to see the move, we raised about $1000. A big thank you goes to Anne Egan and her team for putting on this advent and providing a great afternoon tea.

Greta and I put on a pizza and movie for the children of church parents so they could go to see the movie together, we had ten children and a lot of fun us well.

The church fair is next week. We need every one to come and lend a hand, there are signup sheets in the foyer, this is our major fundraiser for the year, and many hands make light work. Apart from being our big fundraiser it is always great fun to come along and all work together for a common goal.

New Wine is coming back to town. All Saints is hosting New Wine on Friday 4 and Saturday 5 November. Friday is the Leader’s day and Saturday is open to anyone who wants to attend. The main speaker is John Hughes UK, church leader, international speaker, author, and  father of  musician Tim Hughes (writer of Here I am to Worship and Consuming Fire and many more contemporary worship songs).

The vision of New Wine is to see the nation changed through Christians and churches being filled with the Holy Spirit, alive with the joy of  knowing and worshipping Jesus Christ, living out his word, and doing the works of the Kingdom of God. This will be a great event and one I would encourage as many of you that can to get along on   Saturday and take advantage of this world class speaker. You can register online at  newwine.org.nz or call 0800 NEW WINE (639 9463). Brochures are in the foyer for more information.

First week of school holidays, have a great week.

Yours in Christ

Good morning and a warm welcome to you all.

I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to the church family and all the people that have been so supportive over the last couple of weeks, with the arrival of our latest little boy Hugh James Greenwood. He is doing very well and sleeps a lot!

Both Greta and I have been bowled over with the amount of cards and food that we have received, we have felt very blessed.

Greta was talking with her mid wife and telling her how much support we were getting and the mid wife said that in her experience it is always the families that are involved with Churches that get supported the most when a new little one comes along.

It has been truly a blessing to be part of this faith community and be on the receiving end of your love and generosity.

COME TO THE MOVIES TODAY!
Holy Roller today at 3.30pm. It’s not too late to come along and bring some friends, there will be door sales at the Suter Cinema $20.

Greta and I will be putting on a movie and some games starting from 3.15 at the church for the children of parents that would like to go and see Holy Roller. Let us know this morning if you want us to look after your children and go to the movie.

The latest version of the church magazine St Barnabas Focus is out today. Thanks to David for all his hard work. Make sure you grab a copy and check out all things that are coming up in the next couple of months.

Just a reminder that the 945 Sunday second service starts with a time of coffee and food, and is well worth the effort of coming a little earlier. Having the time to spend some time together, getting to know each other and creating a warm environment for newcomers to feel welcome is what it is all about.

Have a great week

Yours in Christ

Philip
