Autumn Events update

We have a number of events taking place this Autumn in our All Souls’ Community. We hope you will take part in these events as they help shape our beloved community for the future.

On Thursday 20th September, the eve of International Day of Peace, there will be a cross-community service of reflection in All Souls church, which will last approximately four hours, to recall the enormous cost of conflict in Northern Ireland. The names of all those who died will be read solemnly, alphabetically, and without any comment, as a powerful illustration of the terrible suffering caused by death in conflict.  The service will occasionally be interspersed by prayer or music. It will begin at 8.00pm and will end shortly after midnight on International Day of Peace. Everyone welcome (If you wish to take part in the reading of the names contact Rev. Chris Hudson – hudson351@btinternet.com or 07969059993)

 Sunday Service, 23rd September 2018, 11.30am

 At our usual All Souls Sunday service on September 23rd the congregation will be addressed by Lord Alderdice who has recently resigned as an elder of the Presbyterian church as a result of its decision to exclude children of same sex couples from the service of baptism. His address will encompass several issues and give us an overview of where he is on his journey as a Presbyterian and a Christian.

            Conversationes

These conversations are styled to be thoughtful group discussions which will take place in the Agnew Room of the Rosemary Hall. They will provide an opportunity to air our views and to get to know each other better.

Thursday 27th September at 7.30pm – What does All Souls’ mean to me?

Members of the congregation will talk about All Souls and its significance to them.  Each person will have five minutes to speak, followed by general discussion. All are welcome and if you wish to take part please contact Rev Alister. You are more than welcome to just come and listen.

Thursday 25th October at 7.30pm – What support do I need in my faith?

This is an open session where we can air our views on what faith means to us and how we can be supported by the community of All Souls.    Curator: Rev Chris Hudson hudson351@btinternet.com

Thursday 29th November at 7.30pm – What do I believe?

Taking the same format as our September session, those taking part will discuss what their faith means to them and we hope that this will be a multi-faith event.  If you wish to take part, please contact Monica Burns.

Thursday 31st January 2019 at 7.30pm – How do I want to Die?

This is an open session and will allow us to think through and discuss our thoughts on death and how we want to die.  From this we hope to arrange a number of practical sessions such as funeral planning, will writing and other legal aspects.  If you wish to take part, please contact Monica Burns.

This will be a ticketed event, with a charge of £7.00 per person and tickets are available through the All Souls facebook page.  We will be serving tea and coffee on the night and you are welcome to bring a bottle if you wish to have a drink.
