The first weekend of August, Leeds celebrates LGBT Pride. At All Hallows’ church, we start Pride Sunday by celebrating the gift of diversity in God’s creation, and we would love you to join us!
Our Bible reading is about Jacob wrestling with God. It is a story of struggle and transformation that speaks so well to the experience of many LGBT people of faith.
In our service, we celebrate the gift of LGBT people in our midst, we thank God for the progress that has been made with LGBT liberation in our country and across the world, and we pray for full liberation to come.
10:30am, at All Hallows’ Church.
WHAT a week!
If you’re also feeling nervous about our new government .. on Sunday in our 10:30am meeting we will reflect on ‘authority’ and how Christ’s authority and Mr Johnson’s compare/contrast. Partly based on these hopeful / seditious words from Colossians 2:8-10
It is the first Sunday of the month and so we will be having Taize style worship at our 10:30am service. Usually on the first Sunday we also have a shared lunch in the cafe but this Sunday will be a bit different as we are going to join in with the Beckett Park Picnic in the Park so do come and join us. If you are able to offer a lift or need a lift please let us know on Sunday. Everyone is welcome!
This coming Sunday, our morning meeting is at 10:30am and we are excited that there will be a baptism! Heston will also be sharing his thoughts on “Responsibility” in part two of our series on Love in action.
This coming Sunday is Pentecost and in our morning meeting at 10:30am it will be the last in our series of JOY IN ENOUGH. Heston will be sharing with us his thoughts on God’s generosity and self-giving, how we can be inspired and sustained by God’s Spirit – the source of life – and how we can channel that life and Spirit into our world. One of our traditions is to wear red on Pentecost Sunday so do come dressed in something red if you are able!
This Sunday also sees road closures due to the Leeds Triathlon so you may find that you have to swim, cycle and run to church!
This Sunday is the first Sunday of the month and so we will be having Taize style worship. It is also our penultimate in our series entitled “Joy In Enough” and Angela Birkin will be sharing with us on the topic of JOY IN God’s provision and care. Do come along and join us at 10:30am, everyone is welcome!
This Sunday at 10:30am we will be celebrating our JOY IN Others, our next in a series entitled “Joy In Enough.” Dr Jan Betts and Graeme Hay will be sharing their thoughts with us.
Join us this Sunday at 10:30am for JOY IN the beauty and diversity of creation, our next in a series entitled “Joy In Enough” when Deidre Duff will be sharing her thoughts with us.
This Sunday it is the Leeds half marathon so put on your running shoes and run to church! Seriously, there are going to be road closures (details here) which will affect some routes to church so it may be easier to walk, cycle or drive part way and walk the last bit. The race starts at 9:30am, church will hopefully be open early if you want to come early.
We will be continuing our series on “Joy In Enough” with “Joy in serving each other” and our meeting at 10:30am will be led by Nigel Greenwood and Toby Parsons.
This Sunday, the first Sunday after Easter, is our APCM or Annual Parochial Church Meeting – or as Heston describes it, our “Annual Party for Church Members”. It is a chance to celebrate all the amazing things that have happened over the last year, to mourn over those things that have saddened us, to reflect on our part in them and to look forward to the next year.
As has been our practice over the last few years we integrate the meeting into our service that starts at 10:30am.
If you haven’t had a copy of the report then please email Heston or the churchwardens or there will be a few copies at Church on Sunday, have a read and a pray and a think, and on Sunday come armed with questions / comments / complaints / compliments / suggestions etc.
Everyone is welcome to join us whether a member, visitor, young or old – come along and share with us in celebrating the amazing life that God gives to all.
