All Saints Day

This Sunday There is a Benefice Service for All Saints Day at St George, Easton-in-Gordano at 10.30 am, and there is an All Souls Service at Christ Church at 6.00 pm in the evening, when you can come and light a candle in memory of a loved one.

If you are unable to come to our Benefice Service this week Rev Astrid has recorded a sermon for us which can be accessed by clicking on the link below. The link becomes live Sunday morning.

Readings are

Revelation ,    chapter 21 verses 1-6a The New Jerusalem. I am the Alpha and the Omega says the Lord

John Chapter 11, verses 32-44  The raising of Lazarus

A copy of Astrid's sermon may be downloaded from our news page.

It may seem  a little strange to be celebrating All Saints Day on the same day as All Souls, when one is celebrating the raising of all our Saints, whilst the other  remembers those who have died, but perhaps the reading from Revelation puts this into perspective. I am the Alpha and the Omega says the Lord, then  the old ending may be the new beginning, when all the faithful are raised to new life.

Amen.
