Prayer for chalking the doors at Epiphany

This morning at All Saints we blessed Chalk and sent it out with members of the congregation to mark our homes. We too would welcome the Magi as they return from their visit to the infant Christ and desire God's blessing on our households!

20 + C + M + B + 18
You can use this prayer.

Write 20+
Father, may we who use this chalk in faith to mark the doors of our homes remembering the Magi:

write C+  Melchior,

write M+  and Balthasar,

write B+ know wisdom, prosperity and the presence of the Holy Spirit this year and always.

write 18
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen 
Or you can simply say:
“Christus Mansionem Benedicat”  which means
“May Christ bless this house”

All Saints Christmas Market

Come and join us on Saturday, 2 December, 10.30am to 2.30pm, at All Saints’ Church Hall, Leavesden for this year’s Christmas market.

We need your help to raise money so we can pay off the loan to replace the church roof, and this is one of the biggest events in our calendar to do this.

There will be children’s activities, including face and nail painting, games and a new Santa’s grotto. We have new stalls where you can buy craft items – see images – and bath salts made locally with essential oils and minerals, as well as cake and refreshments stalls; a great chance to buy some Christmas presents. You can meet our cheeky elves and take an elfie selfie too.

There is also a prize for the best children’s fancy dress, which doesn’t have to be a Christmas theme.

Forthcoming Events

All the latest events coming up at All Saints.

Try Alpha

Whether you have been a Christian for many years – (or even all your life!), or are just starting to wonder if there may be more to life, Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment

There will be weekly meetings on Tuesday evenings at All Saints Parish Centre, 7.30 – 9.45 p.m. The evenings will start with a meal, followed by a talk or video. After that there will be a chance for questions and discussion in small groups. There will also be a Saturday, 10.0 – 3.0 at another venue.

Sharing Life

This 9th–16th July we are welcoming Bishop Michael and a team of people for ‘Sharing Life’ a mission in our parish. This will be a week of doing what we do together as a church, but making it special. Seeking to love and serve the community and especially those who are connected to All Saints but could become a greater part of the family.

There are a range of events - please contact us for me details!
