Dear friends in the church family,

“Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus…” (Phil. 2v1-5)

As some of you will know, we have decided that we now have to change the pattern of Sunday services here at All Saints and to combine the 9.30am and 11.15am services into one service at 10.30am, except on the 2nd Sunday of the month when we will have a Family Service in the TCCC at 10.30am AND a traditional Common Worship (CW) service at 10.30am in the church (normally with communion).

Ministry Training Courses 2019

Peninsula Gospel Partnership Training Course

The course is for anyone who would like to learn and grow in the Christian faith. It is especially appropriate for those involved with teaching the Bible: Sunday School teachers, ministry trainees, youth leaders, pastoral assistants, women’s workers, small group leaders, lay readers and preachers and those considering full-time Christian ministry.

The Training Course meets once a week for thirty weeks. The training is practical and thorough using a mixture of lectures, interactive seminars and workshop groups.  Fees for 2019/2020 are £60 per student per term.

9.30 – 12.30 Wednesdays at St. Leonard’s Church, Exeter.

South West Gospel Partnership Ministry Training Course

 This course is a one-day-a-week course for those who have a desire to grow in their faith and be equipped to pass on the Bible’s message to others. The course runs every Thursday, from 9.30am to 3.30pm at St. Bartholomew’s Church, Bath for 3 ten week terms. Term starts September 2019.

There is an optional second year which builds on what is learnt in the first year.

It is ideal for church workers and apprentices, preachers, gap-year students, youth and children’s workers, home group leaders, women’s workers and those in student ministry, indeed any who are actively involved in teaching the Bible and desire to be better equipped.  It is not restricted to those in paid Christian work, but is also suitable for those in retirement or who are able to take a day out from work on a Thursday.  More details on leaflets in church.

“Shopping Centres to Sharing Christ”

“From a career point of view, the mid 1980s found me benefitting from the property boom, and then I survived the late 1980s property crash. Wrong place at the wrong time? On hindsight, God had me in His place in His time, until He decided it was time for me to move on. When the Chairman informed my colleagues of my decision to leave and go to theological college, he said that, ‘Andy has been head-hunted in a manner with which we cannot possibly compete!”
