Missionary Giving Beyond the Parish
Each year our Parish selects three missionary projects beyond our Parish who we wish to support through prayer, finances and goods. In 2018 we are supported the following projects:
We supported this local service through prayer, the contribution of goods to the local food pantry in Hunters Hill, and supporting the many good activities that this local charity provides, including care for those who are frail, lonely and disabled.
We supported this national organisation through funds raised from "loose change" which is intentionally placed within BCA Money Boxes. These funds seek to support those especially working with Indigenous People, and within Indigenous Communities.
We supported the work of Anglican Overseas Aid in Vanuatu, where they work with the local people, particularly the local women, to assist with the development of solar lighting. Our Parish hosts an annual fundraiser for this important work.
Further to this our Parish supports the work of Anglicare (such as through clothing bins located on our properties), Archbishop's Appeals, and other appeals as per the needs of our local, national and international community. In recent times we have partnered with Churches in Rural NSW to support those affected by drought. our Parish Council are currently reviewing this years options.
All Saints' Choir
All Saints' Choir is an active part of the worship at the 10:00am Sunday Service. The choir sings each Sunday plus special feasts and events. The choir occasionally sings for weddings, funerals and for other special services when requested. The repertoire includes singing a setting of the Eucharist, four hymns, psalmody, a motet during communion and anthems.
Rehearsals are held every Thursday evening from 7.30pm. All are welcome to join the choir.
A variety of study groups, some weekly and some for a short period, operate within the Parish. You can hear about upcoming studies by sending an email here.
A monthly book group meets together in the home of one of the members on the third wednesday of each month at 7:45pm. Each month they take a look at a new book, spend time reflecting upon it together and sharing a great supper.
All Saints' Gardening Group
A group of devoted green thumbs (and some not so green) meet together on the second Saturday of each month from 9:30am to 10:30am to work in the grounds of All Saints. Afterwards they enjoy morning tea together.
“Soundings” is a series of talks and seminars touching on the important issues of our day. It usually takes place on a Sunday afternoon. Topics vary from time to time. We begin with drinks and nibbles from 3:30pm, and the speaker commences at 4:00pm. All are welcome to come and participate. Check our upcoming events for the next seminar.
