churchestogether1a

churchestogether.be is a useful resource for all Christians. As well as giving information about other English-speaking churches, there are links to many sources of information, resources for personal devotion, Bible study, Sunday school, church events and social facilities. And it’s worth looking from time to time to see what’s going on.

This Sunday

THIS WEEKEND IS PENTECOST. CELEBRATE THE GIFT OF THE SPIRIT. WEAR RED.  If you can read a language other than French or English, you can make our worship a better celebration of the gift of tongues. Go to Click HERE and just type in the language you want and it should send you to it. At the time of the reading from Acts, the regular reader at the service will go to the lectern as usual and begin to read the scripture in English. When that reader reaches Verse 4, please stand up right where you are and begin to read your passage aloud, starting at Verse 4. You will not have to read alone, so don’t be shy."

Pentecost is also CONVOCATION MISSION SUNDAY. This year all parishes in the Convocation will combine gifts to support the rebuilding of the Cathedral community center in Haiti. We learned about this in January, now let’s do more about it!

Scones and the Battle of Waterloo

Scones

From 17-21 June thousands of people will visit the Battle of Waterloo site, and we want to welcome them to All Saints’ then. We need YOU to start making and freezing scones to sell. The recipe is HERE. Please sign up and plan to be here as much as possible during those days.

Relay for Life

RelayforLife1

RELAY FOR LIFE is next week (30-31 May). Our team is registered, and many people have signed up for shifts on the sheet in the cafe. But as of Friday, many of you were not officially registered HERE. This year we share our space with Community Help Services (CHS) as an extra form of outreach.

March for Peace

This Saturday 23 May at 3 p.m. there is a gathering processing from La Verbe du Vie aka Fichermont to the Lion’s Mound. You are invited to join this ecumenical event.

The Next Blue Jean Sunday

Thank You! to all who helped with Blue Jean Sunday. There are gardening supplies and plenty of things that still need to be done we’ll try again on 6 June, and meanwhile you are welcome to come at your convenience and weed or trim where-ever you see the need (like painting over the primer on the front door of the church!).

what we believe:

As Episcopalians, we are followers of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and we believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Episcopal Church has members in the United States, as well as in Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Haiti, Honduras, Micronesia, Puerto Rico, Taiwan, Venezuela, and the Virgin Islands.

We strive to love our neighbors as ourselves and respect the dignity of every person.

The Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, and traces its heritage to the beginnings of Christianity.

Our liturgy retains ancient structure and traditions and is celebrated in many languages.

Both men and women, including those who are married, are eligible for ordination as deacons, priests and bishops.

We believe in amendment of life, the forgiveness of sin, and life everlasting.

Lay people exercise a vital role in the governance and ministry of our church.

Holy Communion may be received by all baptized Christians, not only members of the Episcopal Church.

We uphold the Bible and worship with the Book of Common Prayer.

We affirm that committed relationships are lifelong and monogamous. Episcopalians also recognize that there is grace after divorce and do not deny the sacraments to those who have been divorced.

We affirm that issues such as birth control are matters of personal informed conscience.

We celebrate our unity in Christ while honoring our differences, always putting the work of love before uniformity of opinion.

All are welcome to find a spiritual home in the Episcopal Church.
