Christmas news from All Saints’ church
ALL Saints Church, Puerto de la Cruz would like to wish all our readers a blessed, joyous and peaceful Christmas and all the very best for the coming year 2020. There will be a Service on Christmas Eve at 11.30pm and a Christmas Day Service at 11am followed by mince pies.
Our weekly services are held as follows:Sunday Holy Communion at 9.30am and a Sung Eucharist at 11am after which refreshments are available in the parsonage grounds. We also have a Holy Communion Service on a Wednesday at 10am, followed by coffee and either a Bible Study or a Prayer Meeting.
The wonderful Christmas Car Boot was lucky with the weather as after a couple of showers the rest of the day remained cloudy but dry. We kick off the New Year with our next Car Boot on Saturday January 11th, a week later than normal after which the Car Boots will follow the usual pattern of the first Saturday of the month. I feel a special mention of thanks should be said to our Churchwarden Wendy and her team of helpers who work so tirelessly behind the scenes to make every Car Boot the success that they are. Thank you one and all also the stall holders and buyers who come regularly to enjoy our Car Boots for your support over the last year, here’s to 2020 and may it be as successful as the previous years.
PLEASE NOTE A CHANGE OF DATE AND TIME: Our Christmas Carol Service will be held in the church on Thursday December 19th at 6.30pm, this is because we are very lucky to have the children from Saint Andrew’s School with us again to celebrate our evening.This is a very family orientated evening for everyone to join in singing timeless favourite Carols and hearing of the Birth of Christ in our well known Readings. Mince pies will be served after the Service.
There will be two concerts in our church by the Reyes Bartlett Choir on Friday December 20th and 27th at 6pm . Occassions not to be missed.
