Missionary Giving Beyond the Parish
Each year our Parish selects three missionary projects beyond our Parish who we wish to support through prayer, finances and goods. This year we are supporting the following projects:
We support this local service through prayer, the contribution of goods to the local food pantry in Hunters Hill, and supporting the many good activities that this local charity provides, including care for those who are frail, lonely and disabled.
Located within St Andrew’s Cathedral School, Gawura is a unique K-6 day school for First Nations children from inner Sydney. Gawura’s purpose is to close the gap in educational disadvantage of First Nations Peoples. Gawura is an environment where students feel safe, have access to wonderful teachers and an education that is culturally informed and authentic. A strong focus on literacy and numeracy sits alongside cultural learning.
It is proposed that we would raise funds for this project by hosting stalls on 25th March 2023 in conjunction with the State Election at St Mark’s Hall, and the Annual Heritage Lecture and Recital on 20th August 2023.
This project helps ABM (Anglican Board of Mission) to amplify the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglican leaders in the church and more broadly. It supports study guides, videos, retreats, conferences and work towards responding to the calls of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, especially the calls made in the Statement from the Heart at Uluru in 2017. It also supports work to make ABM’s historical records about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people more easily accessible, including by digitisation.
It is proposed that the Welsh Choir Concert on 18th June 2023 would be used to raise funds for this project.
Further to this our Parish supports the work of Anglicare (such as through clothing bins located on our properties), Archbishop’s Appeals, and other appeals as per the needs of our local, national and international community.
All Saints’ Choir
All Saints’ Choir is an active part of the worship at the 10:00am Sunday Service. The choir sings each Sunday plus special feasts and events. The choir occasionally sings for weddings, funerals and for other special services when requested. The repertoire includes singing a setting of the Eucharist, four hymns, psalmody, a motet during communion and anthems.
Rehearsals are held every Thursday evening from 7.30pm. All are welcome to join the choir. Further information at our Music Page.
All Saints’ Gardening Group
A group of devoted green thumbs (and some not so green) meet together on the second Saturday of each month from 8:00am to 10:00am to work in the grounds of All Saints. Afterwards they enjoy a cuppa together.
Community Usage of our Spaces
Our Parish welcomes many community groups to meet in our spaces – from exercise and drama to filming and meditation!
