October “Stunning Stained Glass Windows”

On Sunday afternoon, 17th October, the Parish hosted members of the Norwood, Payneham and St Peters Council to an afternoon of cool drinks, delicious finger food and a guided tour of All Souls’ famous windows.

Over 40 people enjoyed a perfect Spring afternoon on the lawn, sipping wine donated by generous businesses and food from a talented caterer, followed by a presentation of the stories behind our stained glass windows. 

 

Sue Crees and Helen Smith discussed strategies before everyone arrived!

THANK YOU  FOR YOUR GENEROSITY

CAROLYN GILROY of LITTLE REDS CATERING produced amazing finger food that went perfectly with the drinks – thanks to a kind donor.

Welcome to Lily Castiglio

On Sunday 27th June, Lily Castiglio was baptised at All Souls’ Church by Rev’d Tim Sherwell.  Lily’s big sister Sophie was also baptised by Rev’d Tim at All Souls’ Church and watched as Lily became a member of the Parish family.  Welcome Lily. 

2021 Winter Food Collection

Once again, the people of St Peters and surrounding suburbs came up trumps with their donations of food and other items for those in need. Most people came with at least 2 bags – and in some cases many more.  The younger generation took great delight in helping sort items into their categories and many had made their own purchases to be added to the donations. 

Once again, Ann and Lionel Peisley and daughter Laura were the organisers and chief workers that made this annual event happen.  Many don’t realise how much preparation goes into organising notices to be delivered and workers to be available on the day to collect donations.  THANK YOU. 

Below are some photos of the events of the day and the results of everyone’s generosity. 

Holy Week Services

MAUNDY THURSDAY

Parishioners washed the feet of each other in remembrance of Jesus’ service to his disciples at the Last Supper.  At the conclusion of the service, the Church was stripped of all decoration in preparation for Good Friday observance. 

GOOD FRIDAY

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Stations of the Cross were recalled with art, poetry, music and special prayers. The congregation met in the stripped Church with only the illuminated cross as a reminder of the solemnity  of Good Friday. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Following the service, Parishioners gathered in the garden in beautiful Autumn sunshine for Hot Cross Buns and cool drinks. 

EASTER DAY

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The celebration of Easter is always a joyful occasion.  Brenton lead the brass musicians in making a beautiful noise to remember that “He is Risen!”

Palm Sunday 2021

Palm Sunday was celebrated on 28th March 2021 with the blessing of the palms and procession into All Souls’ Church

The readings given by Steve Brookman reminded the congregation of the significance of this very important Sunday in the church calendar.

Pomegranates are the ancient Christian symbol of new life, the sweetness of heaven and the seeds the signs of the church, the people of God…

 

 

 

 

Bishop Denise Ferguson was welcomed as guest preacher

Elizabeth and Tiffany helped serve morning tea in Coles Hall where Parishioners enjoyed the fellowship and delicious home cooking.  

MAKING PALM CROSSES

The group of Anglican women who are meeting the challenge to trek the Larapinta Trail gathered in Coles Hall on Saturday 20th March to make palm crosses for the Anglican Parishes in Adelaide.  The funds raised from their sale will go to aid the work of ABM. 

The production line in action: Wash, clean and dry, then make them and finally, count them out and pack them to fill orders.

The fiddly business of making palm crosses requires concentration: Judith Brown, Rev’d Wendy Morecroft, Dawn Goonasekera and Sara Blunt.

Sara Blunt and Megan Schwarz of ABM count and package the finished product.
