Join us this morning

Church @ Church at All Saints
Fourth Sunday of Easter and Mothers’ Day
8th May 2022

I’m happy to announce that we’re having Church@Church this Sunday. Praise the Lord! How grateful we are that God allows us to meet together in our own building.
This Sunday I’m happy to announce that we’re starting the Gospel of John. We’re going to look at John’s account of the Gospel in a way that you’ve probably not seen it before!
Sunday is also Mothers’ Day. It is the tradition of All Saints to honour our Mothers. Thank God for your mother. Without her, we wouldn’t worship together! And, as a special treat, all the females at church will receive a surprise after the service.
So come, join us and help tell the story. Here’s the announcement:
Church @ Church this Sunday the 8th May at 10:00am
If you didn’t see the service from two weeks ago (The Feast of St. Mark), you can find it by clicking HERE.
(Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties, the service for last Sunday (1st May) is not yet available. However, we’ll let you know as soon as we’ve uploaded it.)
If you have any further questions about these events, or anything else for that matter, don’t hesitate to contact me.
Thank you Church.
Stay vigilant and prayerful.
Love each other deeply and keep Jesus at the very centre of everything you do.
Blessings on all you do.
The peace of our Lord,
Peter Klenner

David Kitz on God’s Firestarters

God’s Fire Starters

Jan 23rd 2022
Posted by davidkitz in book review
National Chair, The Word Guild

This compact, 137-page volume delivers a powerful punch.

“God’s Firestarters” is about ordinary people who were ignited with passion for the Lord, and in turn, they set scores—and in some cases millions of others—on fire with the love and power of the gospel message.

The book is a compilation of twenty short biographies of Christian leaders who had an extraordinary impact on their generation and the world. Each chapter is about five pages long, and covers the highs, lows, and transformative moments of these world-changing pastors, leaders and thinkers.

The book is chronologically organized as it moves through history beginning with Katharina Luther (1499-1552) and ending with the theologian J.I. Packer (1926-2020). Between those dates we find the stories of eighteen other remarkable men and women who overcame enormous obstacles as they lived lives that powerfully impacted the church and the world.

Authors Ed and Janice Hird have done their homework. Each biography is well-written and thoroughly researched with dozens of endnotes.

These are stories that will build your faith and stoke your courage. I highly recommend this book. It’s a real fire-starter in the best way imaginable.
