Sunday 11th November 2018

This Sunday morning (Remembrance Sunday 11 November) we are going to join Methodist, Muslim, Jewish and other friends, to observe the 11am Remembrance silence and to learn about Muslim, Jewish, Hindu and Sikh contributions to the wars.

Please head to Hyde Park Methodist church (2 minutes walk from All Hallows) for 10:30am. If you’d like to walk as a group from All Hallows then please be there for about 10:15am. After a short worship service with a 2 minute silence at 11am we will ‘peace march’ together to Leeds Grand Mosque (2 doors down) to conclude Remembrance and share refreshments.

This promises to be really special time together so do please try and join with us as we remember all those who have suffered as a result of war.

The beautiful ofrenda that we built last Sunday will be the focus of our meeting this Sunday morning at 10:30am, so please bring a photo or special memento of someone important to you who has died to place onto the ofrenda in celebration and remembrance of them.

We are also hosting St Michael’s and St Chad’s to mark our ‘church birthday’ (or patronal festival) of All Hallows’ so do please bring some food to share with them over lunch if you are able.

‘Tis the season to REMEMBER.

Last night we had all sorts of ‘fun’ with death, with the help of this beautiful ofrenda.

This gift from Mexico is with us all week! And will be the focus of our worship next Sunday morning – so please bring a photo or special memento of someone important to you who has died to place onto the ofrenda in celebration and remembrance of them.

Sunday 28th October 2018

This Sunday morning at 10:30am we will be continuing our short series where we look at “The Body of Christ at All Hallows: what kind of Body do we want to be?“, and this week the title of our service is “A body which loves God?” Why not come and join us as we try to discover what it means for us as we try to follow the way of Jesus in loving God.

As we are approaching Halloween (All Hallows’ Eve) we are having some special events to remember “All the Hallows”, all the saints, who we have loved and lost. In the afternoon at 3pm we will be watching the movie Coco followed by pizza at about 5pm (please let us know if you want some).

At 6pm join us to build an Ofrenda, remember and grieve our lost loved ones, and contemplate Life and Death in a creative hopeful way. Please bring something to place on the Ofrenda, as we honour All the ‘Hallows’ we have loved and lost. This could be a photo, a candle, a favourite toy or cd or food or drink – anything that will help you remember in love.

You can read and hear more about the Mexican tradition of Ofrenda building on the LCI website.

Don’t forget! The clocks go back at the weekend so you can have an extra hour in bed on Sunday morning!

Toilet Refurbishment – at last!

The refurbishment work on the toilets starts on Monday and will last for about three weeks. We are really, really, really looking forwards to the work being completed! During the work there will be temporary portaloos outside to provide additional facilities though we hope that at least one toilet will be available inside at all times. I hope you will all bear with us while this work is in progress.

Farewell to this ……

Remembrance is not enough

A special service of more than just Remembrance on the eve of the centenary of the ‘War to end all wars’ is taking place on Saturday 10th November 2:30pm – 3:30pm at Mill Hill Chapel in City Square, Leeds. The guest speaker at this service will the Anglican theologian Andrew Shanks.

The Justice & Peace Commission are working with the Leeds Pax Christi Group to put on this event and prepare a special liturgy booklet that is being shared across parishes in the Leeds Diocese.

The point about remembering the past is to make sure we do better in the future!
