Who Let The Dads Out?

On Saturday 1st July 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. Normally, we meet on the 1st Saturday of the month, but this month we are meeting on the 2nd Saturday due to the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations taking place over the 1st weekend of June.

We do hope you can join us!

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.

Epiphany Party

Epiphany Party

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.

Mark, Fiona  & family

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

3 years ago

 
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

For more details and ordering of tickets (£12 each), please click here or ask at the Church Office.

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?

The Bike Ride has raised around £2,800,000 over the past 32 years. The money has been divided between the church of the participant’s choice and The Norfolk Churches Trust, which gives grants to hundreds of churches for repairs, renovation and the conservation of their buildings. More than 600 churches will be open throughout the day for everyone to explore.

Some interesting facts from the 2017 Bike ride are:

  • The most churches visited by a participant is 64 by bike and 35 on foot.
  • 207 new participants have been recorded as taking part for the first time.
  • St Andrew's Church in Norwich saw the highest number of visitors - 75 in total
  • 312 churches and chapels have been nominated to receive a share of the sponsorship money.

ASM bells "taster"

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.
