March is another busy month in the life of All Saints, especially with Holy Week and Easter coming up towards the end of the month.
We also have two Family Communions in a row, with our Mothering Sunday service at 10am on Sunday 6th March, with our speaker Paula Trewin MBE, and our normal Family Communion on Sunday 13th March which I will be speaking at. The other Sundays have normal services except for the fact that the children will have an Easter Egg hunt at 10am on Easter Day in the Church hall.
This is being sent out before our "Getting to Know you" event on Sunday 28th February. I do hope to see you at the church at 2.30pm as we gather to introduce ourselves. Please prepare a two to three minute talk about yourself, your background, your tastes, what job you do or did, your family. We will then have Afternoon Tea in the hall afterwards. Please bring a cake to the hall beforehand at about 2.15pm if you wish to contribute to the Tea. If you would rather just listen to what people say, and not speak yourself, that is fine. I will only approach people to speak who indicate they are willing to speak.
Please also note details of the Gospel choir concert below! Tickets are now on sale in the church office on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10am to 11am and after church on Sundays. Alternatively you can send a cheque payable to All Saints Whitstable DCC with a stamped addressed envelope to me at The Vicarage, Church Street, Whitstable, CT5 1PG.
QUIET DAY - also please see below details of our church quiet day. In fact, every notice is quite important!
REACH OUT GOSPEL CHOIR CONCERT
This Gospel Choir concert will take place at the Church hall at All Saints on Saturday 12th March at 7.30pm. This is to raise money for the All Saints church organ appeal.
It features the impressive and Canterbury based Reach Out Gospel Choir which sings mainly secular songs but with a spiritual tone. Very lively and uplifting.
Their website is here

They will be priced at £8 per adult and £5 per child ticket in advance and a pound more on the night.
