Sunday 21st October 2018

Last Sunday we finished our exploration of the Gospel of Luke. This Sunday we will be having an all-age service with a baptism. We will be starting a new 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 values all – and so is shaped by all?

Why not come and join us as we dip into the books of Romans, Corinthians and Ephesians and try to discover what it means for us all to exercise our complementary gifts of the Spirit to the benefit of all.

Sunday 30th September

This Sunday we will NOT be meeting at All Hallows! St Michael’s Church in Headingley are celebrating their “Patronal Festival” and so we will be joining them for their 10am meeting when The Rev Hayley Matthews will be sharing her thoughts and this will be followed by a bring and share lunch.

Patronal Festivals are seen as the birthday of any particular church and are often celebrated on the Sunday nearest to the day dedicated to the Saint the church is named after. St Michael’s Day is on 29th September and so St Michael’s are celebrating this Sunday. All Hallows is another way of saying All Saints and All Saints Day (All Hallows Day) is on 1st November so we usually celebrate our Patronal Festival or church birthday on the nearest Sunday. Halloween is a short form of All Hallows eve, the day before All Hallows Day which is why Halloween in on 31st October!

This coming Sunday is the fourth Sunday of Creationtide, a time for especially celebrating God’s Creation and thinking about how we look after it.

We will be welcoming Tony Whatmough from St Michael’s to our 10:30am meeting and he will be sharing his thoughts on Luke 17:20-37 as we fast approach the end of our series looking at the Gospel of Luke.

It is the start of a new term at the Universities and our part of Leeds is set to become home for lots of students – returning and new – so let’s pray for them as we offer everyone a warm welcome to All Hallows’ and Hyde Park.

Sunday 2nd September 2018

This Sunday is the first Sunday of the new academic term. So let’s celebrate that we’re all Called by God to learn and grow into fullness of life, and to love and serve God through our daily life and work.

And let’s bless each other’s daily life and work by blessing the bags that we carry around with us. So on Sunday please bring your school bag, book bag, computer bag, hand bag, shopping bag, tool bag, gym bag, nappy bag, goodie bag- any bag that you regularly use in daily life.

It is also the first Sunday of the month and so we will be having a shared lunch together. If you are able please bring along some food to share with each other. As it is the first Sunday in Creationtide we will also have the opportunity over lunch to share our thoughts and ideas about looking after God’s creation and in particular how we together can be an “eco-church”.

After the meeting a group of us will be heading to Armley Mills to have a picnic (unless it rains in which case the picnic will be at church) and to visit a beautiful exhibition of felt making called “Wool Stories” connecting with the industrial history of Leeds.
