November 2018

We have a busy November with a Bonfire Party, Table Top Sale and Christmas Fayre. We have special services for Remembrance Sunday and Confirmation. Finally we are collecting toys for the Salvation Army’s Christmas Present Appeal and preparing our tree for the Methodist Church Christmas Tree Festival.

Bonfire night

Monday 5th November at 6pm

We will be holding our bonfire and fireworks on 5th November followed by delicious food cooked by Ivan. There is no charge but we would welcome any donations towards the cost of the fireworks and food.

Christmas Table Top Sale

Saturday 10th November 2018 at 10:30am – 12:30pm

Our next Table Top Sale raising funds for our Missions and the church. Admission is free and there will be plenty of items for sale to suit everyone including gifts, cards, plants, toys, books, DVDs etc. so come along and start your Christmas shopping.

Table-hire (if available) is only £5, speak to Jo or contact the church office for details.

Remembrance Sunday

Sunday 11th November at 10:30am

As you know this Remembrance Sunday is the 100th anniversary of the armistice of the first world war and our service will reflect this important moment.

The Church of England service for this remembrance Sunday is about peace and it has been suggested we will be reading the Lord’s Prayer in different languages – if you would like to say the Lord’s prayer in a language other than English then please speak to Pam.

Please note: The service will start slightly later at 10.30am so we can time our two minutes silence to be at 11.00am.

Confirmation Service

St Lukes Church, Watford
Sunday 11th November at 6:30pm

This year’s confirmation service will be taking place on Sunday 11th November at St. Lukes, Watford. We have two adults who are being confirmed at this service – Frances and Pilar. We hope that as many as possible from All Saints will attend the service to support and pray for them on this very important step on their Christian journey. Put the date in your diary and please keep Frances and Pilar in your prayers as they prepare for confirmation.

Christmas Fayre

Saturday 24th November 2018 at 10:30am – 12:30pm

Our annual Christmas Fayre is on Saturday 2nd December. We will have present ideas on our craft and bric-a-brac stalls, lots of fun games to play including a fabulous raffle. We will also have cakes and refreshments.

All money raised will go towards our Missions for the year, so please come along and support our final fundraising event of the year.

Christmas Tree Festival

Carpenders Park Methodist Church
30th November to 2nd December

The Methodist Church are holding their annual Christmas Tree Festival and as usual we have been invited to provide a tree.

This year we want the whole congregation to help create decorations. After the service on Sunday 18th November we will be making Christmas salt-dough shapes. Then the following Sunday 26th November we will be painting and decorating them. It would be great if you can spare a few minutes after the service on these weeks so we can all be part of decorating our tree.

And finally, do go along over the weekend of 30th November to support the event.

Christmas Toy Collection

This year we are collecting toys for the Salvation Army to wrap and deliver to children who may not otherwise receive any Christmas presents so if you are out shopping maybe you could include a toy in your basket! There will be a box at the back of the church for donations which will be there until Sunday 9th December. Please let friends and family know – the more toys we collect the more children will have a special Christmas.
