Quiz Night Recap

Rae with the winning raffle prize, congratulations!

A huge thank you to all the parishioners and their friends, for a very successful night. It was great to see so many new faces – one visitor said she enjoyed it so much she is  keen to come to the next one!

Jordan was a commanding quiz-master, not easy when challenged about answer variations. Great to see his voice was fine for the sermon the following Sunday.

Colleen’s raffle basket, that was brimming with goodies, was won by Don Gallagher’s friend Rae. The winning team on the night who will enjoy wine, movies and chocolates was Susan Maclaine’s. The questions thanks to Gillian and Glen Whitley were user friendly but managed to sort the winners and the almost winners.

The prizes were donated by the local businesses and we thank them for their generosity – Kathmandu in the city, T2 in the city, Crave, Life Pharmacy Birkenhead, Paper plus Birkenhead, Bliss Hair salon, Auto Super Shoppe Birkenhead, Bridgeway Cinemas, Ravenhill Cafe, Standingroom Cafe, Bunaglow Cafe,Tongue & Groove Cafe, Golden Glow Candles, Casual Foodies, and The Warehouse.

The total raised for the mission and ministry of All Saints was an amazing $ 1611.20!

Mothering Sunday 

Lent traditionally began on the first Monday in Lent (day after First Sunday in Lent). Therefore the 4th Sunday in Lent was half-way through Lent: Mid-Lent Sunday (in French mi-carême). This allowed for some feasting to ease the Lenten fast. Some visited the mother church of the diocese on this day, and gave a donation. Servants and apprentices often visited their parents with “mothering cake”. Both are part of Mothering Sunday which we celebrate this Sunday the 6th March.

Lenten Study: In Am With You

I am with you Lent Study

Episcopal priest and theologian Kathryn Greene-McCreight examines the biblical portrayal of God’s presence among us as light in darkness. Close readings of Scripture are woven into a framework patterned on the seven monastic hours of prayer and the seven days of creation. With an introduction by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, I Am With You is a reflective and thought-provoking guide to the solemn season of Lent.

Join us for our Lenten study taking place each Sunday until Easter commencing on the 14th February at 5:30pm in the Church Hall. For material relating to the study please contact the office at vicar@birkenheadallsaints.org.nz

Ash Wednesday 

ashes

Join us as we begin the season of Lent with Ash Wednesday. Ashes are an ancient sign of penitence; from the Middle Ages it became the custom to begin Lent by being marked in ash with the sign of the cross. Ash Wednesday takes place forty days before Easter (excluding Sundays), representing Jesus’ time in the wilderness. We will be offering two services, one at 10am, and another at 7:30pm Wednesday 10th February.

We look forward to seeing you as we start the journey of Lent together.
