All Saints Church have now registered with Easy Fundraising who help

To continue our journey of knowing Christ more deeply, we need to continue learning and exploring His Word. This learning path doesn’t end, as we must keep challenging ourselves in our understanding and application of the Scriptures in our lives. The encouragement to keep on learning is clear: “For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known.” (1 Corinthians 13:12). God is revealed.
To help with this a monthly get together takes place to discuss various aspects of the Christian Faith, whilst at the same time many people munch on a rather tasty doughnut or two!
Topics discussed have included; Peace, Stress, Forgiveness
Topics are chosen by those who attend, emphasis is placed on being relaxed and informal.
See the calendar for times and venue.
Other ways to help your journey include working with the children and youth team; singing in the choir and volunteering as a server or reader.

We are a small band of 6 and, due to the small number in the band able to make evening practices, we don’t meet regularly for weekly practices but practice with ringers from St Andrews Church, Burnham on Sea on the first Wednesday of each month either at Mark (7.30 to 9.00) or Burnham.

Like singing? The Songs of Praise service might be for you. Third Sunday of each month at 3pm All Saints Church East Huntspill.
At St Peter and All Hallows Church West Huntspill there are occasional singing sessions where people gather to sing hymns for future services.
Do you enjoy singing with a group, new songs, old songs, neglected songs?
We are Mark choir, currently a ladies only friendly group, rehearsing and singing a wide variety of music from show songs, popular ballads to church music. The choir have sung at a number of weddings, church carol services and other events and are now looking at events in 2018/19. We are looking to expand our group and would warmly welcome new members to come along. Some of our members form a church choir to sing on the first Sunday in the month in church and at other Festival services during the year.
They tell us that group singing is good for relaxation, health and general well- being, so why not come along and give it a try. The ability to read music is not essential, but if you can you would be most welcome. What is more important is to enjoy the company of others, be a team player and enjoy singing.
We meet in the warm comfort of Mark church hall on a Wednesday evening between 6.45 and 8.30pm. From start to 7.30 we practice church music and popular anthems for church use, and in the last hour we rehearse songs from the shows and other songs, which we shall be taking into the community.
Come along and give it try ……. At the moment it is Freeeeee…. And all music is provided. For more info, contact Derek on 01278 788221 [email protected] or Heather on 01278 641 225
