Who Let The Dads Out?

On Saturday 1st October we continue our Who Let The Dads Out? group. As ever, it is for Dads (and other father figures) and children up to and including Year 2 at school. We meet in All Saints' Church, Mattishall and run from 9 am to 10.30 am, with bacon butties and/or toast available throughout the session as well as drinks (hot and cold). It's a great time for dads to spend time with their youngsters and chat with other dads. There are always plenty of toys to play with and it is an opportunity for Mum to have a bit of peace and quiet while you are out. 

For details of dates please see the main page here. If you are a dad or other father figure and fancy coming along, do just drop in and stay as long or as short a time as you like.. The cost is £2 per family group per session.

We do hope you can join us!

Walking in New Testament Sandals

2 months ago

 
Walking in New Testament Sandals

This event will be led by Rev. Dr. Sue Woan, who has a gift of bringing the New Testament alive. It will be an interactive day of exploration, new insights and FUN, including walking in the footsteps of Jesus.

Through interactive presentations, discover how geography, politics, festivals and the individual perspectives of Matthew, Mark Luke and John have resulted in 4 gospels. The day includes a unique visit to ‘Churches Together in Rome’ and a personal encounter with St Paul!

No previous knowledge of the New Testament is required, but please bring a bible if you can (we will have some available to borrow as well). Sandals are optional!

The event is free, though any donations would be welcome. Bring your own lunch. Drinks will be provided throughout the day.

Please book in advance  at Walking in New Testament sandals Tickets, Sat 24 Sep 2022 or contact our church office or the Vicar, Mark McCaghrey, on 01362 850971. Alternatively, sign up on the list at the back of All Saint's, Mattishall.

Please also let us know if you need handouts in large print. We have a loop system in ASM on the north side (marked up, but please ask if it is unclear).

The event starts at 9.30 (drinks) for a prompt 10.00 start. We expect to finish at about 15.00.

UPDATE: If you are unable to get along to our session,  you may be interested to learn that Sue Woan will be running a similar session at St Edwards Church, Lammas Road, Badersfield, NR10 5LG the following Saturday 1st October with the same time details. For their event, please contact Mother Shawn Marie on 07788420813 or email mthrshawntomlinson@gmail.com.

UPDATE 2: If you have asked to be able to park near the church, you should already have received notification of where you can best park (the church rooms car park). For those of you who are ASM regulars and have not asked to be able to park right near the church, would you please avoid using the church rooms car park. There is street parking as usual, but The Swan pub have kindly said we can also use their car park at the top end of Burgh Lane. This can be seen at https://what3words.com/leathers.captures.panel. If you use that car park, we suggest you then use the entrance to ASM’s churchyard on the Dereham Road side of the church at https://what3words.com/writers.requiring.market.

ASM Parish Day - POSTPONED

ASM Parish Day - POSTPONED

Owing to the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elisabeth, this event has been postponed so that the church will be available for those in our local community who wish to mourn her death.

-------------------------

As explained at both ASM services on Sunday 14th August and in Mark's follow up email, we have decided it would be better to hold this "Parish Day" at ASM itself in order to make it as easy as possible for people to come and take part. Again, as Mark explained, we will now be providing lunch for all participants.

Please sign up at the back of ASM if you haven't already done so so that we know who will be coming and who we need to order lunches for.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Advent Quiet Morning

‘Come with Me  by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.’   Mark 6:31b 

The Advent Quiet Morning is an opportunity to take some time out during this busy season. The morning will be centred on reflecting on scripture followed by some personal quiet time where you can engage with God in reflective and creative spaces, explore the thought provoking  Prayer Walk or simply rest in His presence.

If you've never been on a retreat, the Quiet Morning is a good place to explore what that would be like. 
You don’t have to stay for the whole morning, but you’ll get the most out of your time if you’re there from the start. 
Some find it helpful to bring a notebook or journal. 
We hope to see you there.

If you are able to join us on the (socially distanced) pilgrimage, that would be wonderful. So to help you please find copy our routes HERE and times across the benefice. We hope it is self-evident.

Above all, please do pray for Andrea at this very special time for her.

With every blessing,

Mark

Not only Red in Tooth and Claw - Cooperation as an Evolutionary Principle

Not only Red in Tooth and Claw - Cooperation as an Evolutionary Principle

Mattishall and Tudd Valley Benefice is hosting the Starbridge Lecturer in Theology and Natural Sciences, and Parker Preacher for 2020, Revd Dr. Andrew Davison at a Webinar on Zoom.

In his will in 1575, Matthew Parker, Archbishop of Canterbury to Elizabeth I, and Norfolk born, established the Parker Sermon – an annual sermon given on Rogation Sunday in Thetford and Mattishall by an appointee of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge with the purpose of education and edification.

This year, the Parker Preacher is the Dean of Corpus Christi College, and Starbridge Lecturer, Andrew Davison. In his life experience, Andrew bridges both Science and Theology. Andrew read Chemistry in the 1990s followed by a DPhil in Biochemistry. After ordination, he completed a PhD in philosophical theology at Cambridge, followed by ministry, teaching, lecturing and writing at Oxford and Cambridge, laterly moving to Cambridge and then taking up the position of Dean of Chapel at Corpus Christi in 2019.

His wide ranging career includes his year as a fellow at the Center of Theological Inquiry in Princeton, New Jersey, on a NASA-sponsored programme to consider the implications for human society and self-understanding of life elsewhere in the universe, examining the significance of such 'exobiology' for the main aspects of the Christian faith and his book “Participation in God: A Study in Christian Doctrine and Metaphysics”, published in 2019.

As an expression of Matthew Parker’s vision for his sermon series, Andrew will be giving an illustrated webinar on 9th June 2020, on the topic of mutualism, or cross-species cooperation, another area of research for him. This webinar is free and open to all and will be held via Zoom on 9th June 2020 at 7:30pm, with the Zoom meeting ID of 883 7386 3056 and password of 563198.

Joint online worship for all the benefice - Easter Sunday

Leaders:

On Sunday 12th April, Easter Day, at 10:00 (gathering from 9:45) we will be having a Celebration Service with Breaking of Bread (https://zoom.us/j/224497494?pwd=TllUOE5qNHRadHpTQ1ZnQlIwZ0puQT09) Our circumstances may be peculiar or even heartbreaking, but Jesus is still Risen, so we will be gathering via Zoom for a service of praise and celebration on Easter Day. This service will be similar to our previous acts of Sunday Worship using Zoom, but we will be Breaking Bread together as well. We can’t have communion in its traditional sense, but we can still have a shared meal: just as Jesus revealed himself to the despairing disciples on the road to Emmaus through the breaking of bread (Luke 24:30) so we be gathering via Zoom to share in an act of breaking of bread together. Please bring enough bread to share with everyone who is in your household on Sunday as you ‘socially distance’ or ‘shield’ yourself to the service. The rest will be explained on Sunday. Again, we are looking for bible readers and people willing to pray. Please tell us you can help using this link: https://bit.ly/2xcxDZZ This service uses the same Meeting ID for our act of worship last week (and this will stay the same for all our Sunday Worship services in the future). Zoom Meeting ID: 224-497-494 Please see the Online Worship Together section for helpful tips for when taking part in our services.

Every year we have a ‘Walk of Witness’ joining the three church families who meet in Mattishall together with Christians who live in Mattishall but worship outside the village. Obviously, we can’t do that this year, but we are still going to pray for the village and use Zoom to join us together. We will be virtually ‘following’ our usual path through the village from the Evangelical Church down to All Saints Mattishall with stations along the way for singing, readings and prayer.

Last year we used a variation of this service for the first time in the benefice, but are adapting things for the Age of Zoom. It features ten readings, so we will need ten readers. If you are happy to help please let me know using this link: https://bit.ly/2xcxDZZ Please bring with you a candle, preferably a tea light if you have one, as we will be using the candles in our worship.

Fiona and I are trying something new this year. In previous years we have hosted a Christmas party in the lead up before Christmas, but unfortunately this has often clashed with the end of the school year, visits to relatives to swap presents and the Strictly final. So this year we are moving it to Saturday 4th January 2020 as an Epiphany Party. The format will be the same, with tea and cakes in the afternoon and a hot buffet in the evening.

We look forward to inviting you all to the Vicarage. No sign up sheets required, please just come.

Holy Communion with Baptism and Confirmation

3 years ago

 
Holy Communion with Baptism and Confirmation

Leaders: Bishop Jonathan

On December 8th we will be welcoming Bishop Jonathan, the Bishop of Lynn to All Saints Mattishall at 10:30 for a service of Baptism and Confirmation. Both Baptism and Confirmation are acts that signify steps along the journey of faith. Baptism is the sign of our commitment to the Christian faith – the step when we go from ‘knowing about Jesus’ to ‘knowing Jesus personally’. The Bible tells us that in baptism we are united with Jesus in his death and resurrection and that the water of baptism symbolises the washing away of our sins on the Cross. It is a symbol of our relationship with God as Father and the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Whenever it happens, whether as a baby, child or adult, baptism is at the heart of an amazing journey of faith as a follower of Jesus Christ. You are never too old to take this step and being baptized as an adult is a wonderful experience. Confirmation means different things to different people. For those who were baptised as babies or small children, confirmation is the opportunity to publicly affirm that their faith is no longer that of their godparents or parents, but now their own. For others, it an expression of belonging, either having moved from another part of the worldwide Christian church and having made a commitment to one of the churches of our benefice, or it can express a sense of belonging not just to the local church, but also to the worldwide body of Christ. That’s why confirmation involves the Bishop, as his ministry expresses our connection as a small fragment of the body of Christ with the whole. As a benefice, we have a number of candidates for baptism and confirmation. Please pray for them and those preparing them as they look forward to this important moment in their Christian lives. But what about you? Have you yet to be baptised and/or confirmed? Is it a step that you feel drawn to? If so, please email me so we can talk it over (email address on Contacts page). Mark

Singer/songwriter & mentor to Sam Smith, Joanna Eden, brings her songs to the beautiful All Saints Church in Mattishall.

Singer/songwriter & mentor to Sam Smith, Joanna Eden, brings her songs to the beautiful All Saints Church in Mattishall.

Singer Songwriter, pianist and BBC One All Together Now judge Joanna Eden will be performing in Mattishall on Friday 11th October at 7.30pm.  As well as songs from her acclaimed new album 'Truth Tree’, she will be performing the music of Joni Mitchell, Fleetwood Mac, Carole King and Eagles as well as some well known jazz classics like Mr Bojangles and A Taste of Honey. 

Says Joanna “All Saints Church is a stunning space - my mum and dad Diana and John Snelling - who live in Dereham, renewed their marriage vows there 2 years ago for their Golden Wedding so it’s a very special place for our family.  I can't wait to hear my songs bouncing off those walls!"

In a twenty year career, acclaimed singer-songwriter Eden has shared stages with The Buena Vista Social Club, Jamie Cullum, The Blockheads and Ronan Keating as well as her superstar student Sam Smith who was her backing singer as a teenager. The Grammy and Oscar winning artist, has cited Joanna simply as "the reason I sing".

Joanna recently performed her songs live on BBC Radio 2 and fans include Sir Michael Parkinson who instructed his listeners to “Seek her out!”  Radio 2’s own ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris recently tweeted about Joanna’s concert and she’s received rave reviews from Mojo magazine who described her music as having “melody, mystery and bite!”

Joanna performs regularly in Norfolk and has performed at the Memorial Hall and Dereham Jazz Club.  She recently returned to the Playhouse in Norwich for the annual evening of Jazz and Cabaret in aid of cancer charities.  Joanna’s thrilled to be performing at All Saints Church (where profits will go to their conservation and repair fund) as she loves the acoustics of churches.  In fact, Truth Tree was recorded in a church in Cambridgeshire.

“We recorded the piano and vocals live in a tiny ancient Parish Church in Hadstock, then my producer Dave Blackman, my band and I added more layers in the studio. The songs were written at a very turbulent time in my life when my marriage fell apart... I was searching for love and peace... they're very spiritual and confessional in that way. The recording day was extremely cathartic for me, very special indeed! I think that's why it feels right to sing these songs in places of contemplation and celebration.

Joanna's concert will take place at 7.30pm on Friday 11 October. Refreshments available. Proceeds to ASM Conservation & Repair Fund - Charity No: 1135038

Spring Harvest Local

Spring Harvest Local

Fiona, the family and I will be going again to the Spring Harvest Christian festival at the Harrogate Conference Centre from the 14th to the 18th April 2020. We had a great time two years ago, with inspiring teaching, great worship and the opportunity to have afternoon tea at Betty’s Tea Rooms. Over the years we have been to Spring Harvest and other similar events to be refreshed and renewed in our Christian faith and are looking forward to going next year. You can find out more at www.springharvest.org/harrogate.

Because we are previous attenders, we received a special low cost of £99 per adult (children are less), an offer which is still open until the end of September if we take others with us, although you will need to book accommodation separately.

If you are unsure whether this is for you, then Spring Harvest is coming to Norwich for one night only on 24th September 7:30pm at Sprowston Methodist Church, where you can have a taster of what is in store for 2020. The worship leader is Pete James, who led the worship at Harrogate two years ago and he was amazing. The cost is £8 pp or £6 pp for concessions. We can’t book these tickets for you, so you will need to go to www.springharvest.org/local. If you don’t have a computer then we can help at the office.

Please talk to Fiona or me if you would like to know more.

We are one church family with two different service styles and so this week we will be reflecting our unity in Christ and in purpose by having just the one service.

Maundy Thursday Service

4 years ago

 
Maundy Thursday Service

Dear friends,

“For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.” (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

With these words the apostle Paul reminds the early church at Corinth what makes the shared meal they had together as a church every week different and unique. They were not just coming together to have a dinner party, or even to strengthen their bonds as a church family, but to remember the death of Jesus and why that is important to them.

With our Maundy Thursday supper this year we will be drawing together three strands: First, our communion service as we remember the Last Supper of Jesus and the disciples; Second, a shared meal together of a simple supper with soup, bread, salad ham and cheese; Third the principle of meditative readings which will help us enter into the road to the Cross and prepare us  for Good Friday.

The service will start at 6:30pm at All Saints Mattishall on Thursday 18th April.

Fiona is doing the catering for the event, so please can you let her know that you will be attending, either directly to fiona.mccaghrey@matvchurch.uk or using this registration form: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/maundy-thursday-supper-tickets-60200617668#tickets by Tuesday 16th April at the latest.

This service is open to all, so please do pass on the invite to anyone you think might wish to come – but please get them to let Fiona know.

See you then.

With every blessing,

Mark

Heating Installation

Heating Installation

Heating
We are delighted to tell you that all approvals have now been received and work to install the new boiler and improve the heating system will be starting week beginning
12th November. This is fabulous news and we thank God for His blessing! However, clearly this will cause some disruption.
Work will be carried out during the week, so the building will not be available for other use during the week, except for funerals.
We will be able to use the building at weekends, with parts closed off as appropriate, so disruption to Sunday services should be minimal.
A ‘slimline’ version of  Little Angels will be run in the Church Rooms on a Wednesday morning.
It is anticipated that work will be completed in time for Christmas, although there will be disruption in the meantime.  Things may need to be moved around and changed to accommodate the work, so please  put on your most graceful, patient smiles if anything is a little different or a bit inconvenient during the next couple of months or so. It will be worth it!
We all owe huge thanks to the boiler team (Sue, Ken, Barbara and Steve) for getting us to this stage. If you have any questions about the project,  please speak to one of them or to Mark.

Leaders:

This will be an Act of Remembrance of particular poignancy as we remember particularly the armistice coming into force at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 after 4 years of horrific conflict. The service will begin on the village green at 10:40, but there will be a parallel start to the service in ASM itself for those unable to join us on the village green. After the 2 minute silence, those on the village green will join those already in ASM for the continuation of the service.

Celebrating the completion of the renovation of All Saints, Welborne

Following the completion of all the building work that has been happening at All Saints Church, Welborne, we are very pleased to announce that Bishop Jonathan, the Bishop of Lynn, is coming  for our Rededication Service.

Those of you who have been to Welborne Church may have noticed that on the rood screen there are some musical notes and an inscription in Latin, which has been there since the early 1900’s.

We are delighted that the Bishop has agreed to sing this for us.  As far as we know nobody from the present time has heard it sung in Welborne Church before, although we did have the words translated for our church booklet in 2013.

We do hope you may be able to join with us for this celebration and stay for refreshments afterwards.  To help with catering if you will be staying would you please let the office know. Thank you.

The Mark Experiment - "What's it all about?" session

4 years ago

 
The Mark Experiment - "What's it all about?" session

No, nothing to do with the Rev Mark!

What this is, is a drama of Mark’s Gospel enacted by members of our churches.  There is an information 90 minutes at ASM on Saturday 8th September at 10 a.m. with performances on the 17th and 18th November.

Firstly, it is about learning the Gospel of Mark.  Mark did not expect people to read his Gospel but to listen to it. It was written so people could memorize it, not word for word, but bit by bit, to get to know Jesus better and to tell the story to others.

Secondly, this is a book about rediscovering Jesus.  It’s about getting to know Him better, loving Him and enjoying Him.  If that’s what you want, then you can be sure Jesus wants you to experience that much more than you do.

So that is what this experiment is all about, learning the Gospel so we can get to know Jesus better.

For anyone who may be remotely interested, come along on the Saturday to learn more about this project before making any commitment.  All are most welcome.

We need 15 people, 8 men and 7 women, including 50 % ish to be between 17 and 30/35! 

If anyone wishes to speak with me about this before hand then do make contact.

Praying for you all to pray about this and to seek Gods will in this.  His will be done in this place. 

Challenge accepted?

ASM bells "taster"

We are holding a taster session for ringing the church bells after the 10.30 am service on 22nd April (at roughly 11.30).  Technically it will be just ‘chiming’ the bells as ‘ringing’ requires training.

However, if you would like to join Nigel Raven in the bell ringing chamber after the service tomorrow he will give you a taste of what it is like to ring the bells and you will be able to have a go at chiming a bell.   It is perfectly safe for anyone with no skill to try. 

Go and join him and have a go!  All welcome.
