After a moving Holocaust service and thoughts on ageing last week (Anne's reading was a revelation) it is just a normal Sunday service: but I am sure that Chris will surprise us all!
(It was a surprise "Love Service" taken by our fine "student" Minister, Lynda Kane)

Rev Chris with the support of Rev Alister and their team keep us in touch in thought, prayer and hope!

On January 10th 2021 The Right Rev Chris Hudson posted a message on Facebook regarding "Return to online worship"

All Souls' is open for worship online but no gathering of the Congregation
All recommended Covid19 restrictions in place.

Our first service after second lockdown was on Sunday 13th of December 2020 and a virtual Carol Service was conducted in the Church fully decorated for Christmas.

Weddings and funerals can take place but with limited numbers and  no receptions or wakes.

Our sister Churches in Cork and Dublin reopened but were forced to close again in October: pick up Rev Mike O'Sullivan from Cork on Facebook and Rev Spain of Dublin


The Annual General Meeting of All Souls' was postponed because of the present crisis and despite best efforts it is still impossible to hold an AGM


The Committee and its Sub-Committees continue to take responsibility for the Management of the business of All Souls' and will be held accountable at The Annual general meeting in due course.

Contact allsoulsbelfast@gmail.com if you have any questions regarding the governance of All Souls'

The Right Rev Chris Hudson is keeping All Souls'  alive. Supported  by Dr Evangelisti,  Rev Alister Bell,  Session, The Committee, Trevor, Brian and the Congregation. 

The Rev Alister Bell and Student Minister Lynda Kane are posting thoughts on Facebook

The Committee has established principles of governance and protocols for managing the business of the Church. Virtual Committee meetings are held monthly.  In the light of the Annual General Meeting being postponed, the  Hon. Secretary sought advice from the Charity Commission NI: he is confident that All Souls' is compliant as far as possible with the guidelines set out  in www.charitycommissionni.org

We must all support each other, but  respect each others privacy in these terrible times

 Mark Shimmons and Alan Gray are our new acting Stipend Clerks and meticulously record your giving to All Souls’, stipend and collections. It is important to add    20% + to all that you give, if it is linked to a HMRC gift aid form: so please make the effort complete a form if you are a taxpayer.  Stipend can be paid as a lump sum or by the envelopes or by standing order.

It also is worth pointing out that the stipend year is the same as the Calendar year: so stipend if payed in a lump sum, should be paid before the end of 2020.

All Souls' will not ask for your bank details!  All Souls' will not e-mail or telephone a stipend payer with details of the Church's bank accounts: if a stipend payer receives such an e-mail or telephone call, do not respond and contact the Data Protection Officer at allsoulsbelfast@gmail.com

If anyone wishes to make a contribution to All Souls' please contact The Ministers or the Acting Stipend Clerks . 

A leaflet explaining all the options is available at the back of the Church on the table.

Join us for Morning Service every Sunday at 11.30am 

followed by Fairtrade tea/coffee and snacks.

Inclusive Christian Community,  Diversity,  Progressive Thinking,  Faith with Integrity,  Love,  Liberalism, Compassionate,
I n d i v i d u a l i s m,  Intellectual Freedom.  

 

All Souls, an inclusive church, is a religious liberal community.  We are united in Christian fellowship and not by any fixed doctrine or creed. Our members believe/agree that religious belief is a matter for the individual and not proscribed by dogma. We also acknowledge that such belief should be held in the light of reason and may change with new knowledge.

We come together in the worship of God, seeking greater awareness of the divine, in the spirit of freedom and in fellowship with all who seek truth.  Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty.
Whilst the ethos of our worship is placed firmly in the Christian Tradition, we find guidance and inspiration from all great literature as well as in the deepest experience of human life. 
 
 

Our hope is to express our religion in ways that are open and free thinking, which will enhance human dignity.


Membership of this church is open to all, who can share these values with us
Our Minister is Reverend Chris Hudson MBE
 
Services are at 11.30am every Sunday
(unless shown otherwise)
