Great Is Thy Faithfulness
Chris Rice
"Great is Thy faithfulness, " O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

"Great is Thy faithfulness!" "Great is Thy faithfulness!"
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided

"Great is Thy faithfulness, " Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.
Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
My Jesus, My Saviour (Shout to the Lord)
Darlene Zschech
My Jesus, my Saviour
Lord there is none like you
All of my days, I want to praise
The wonders of your mighty love
My comfort, my shelter
Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath, all that I am
Never cease to worship You
Shout to the Lord, all the earth let us sing
Power and majesty, praise to the King
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name
I sing for joy at the work of your hands
Forever I'll love you, forever I'll stand
Nothing compares to the promise I have

My Jesus, my Saviour
Lord there is none like You
All of my days, I want to praise
The wonders of your mighty love
My Comfort, my Shelter
Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath, all that I am
Never cease to worship You
Message from The PCC Treasurer, All Saints Alrewas

Dear All

As we are now able to begin the process of holding services, once more there will be opportunity for congregation members to contribute to the ministry of All Saints via the regular weekly offerings.

You will I am sure be very aware that one of the many issues arising from the pandemic has been a very marked shift away from cash transactions because notes and coins passing between individuals present a material risk of transmitting the virus.

Prior to lockdown whilst the majority of our regular income from congregation members was received via standing orders, a significant level of income continued to be received in cash via those who use regular giving envelope scheme as well as some loose plate.

As we move forward, and given the level of infections that continue to be seen and the government restrictions in place, the PCC would like to encourage giving via alternative means to cash if at all possible.

For those members who use the weekly envelope scheme we would ask you to consider making your gifts via a regular standing order. If for any reason this is not possible and you need to continue giving in cash then it would be really appreciated if you could consolidate your giving using just one envelope a month and the smallest possible number of notes and coins. This will help protect those who have to handle the cash as well keeping the number of visits to the Bank to as few as possible.

If you are in the position of being a non-tax payer then we would ask that you continue to give via cash as the PCC is able to obtain gift aid on your donation via a separate scheme which is an important part of our income. Again as per the message above we would ask use the smallest number of notes and coins possible. Unfortunately donations via cheque from non-tax payers don’t qualify for the scheme.

If you are not a tax payer but your partner is, and you share a joint bank account, then if your partner is willing to sign the Gift Aid declaration this would also enable us to make a valid claim.
If you are able to give directly via either regular standing order or less regular ‘one off payments’ directly to our Bank Account , the PCC’s details are as follows:-
Account Name -               Alrewas PCC
Sort Code                            40-28-18
Account No                        00100404

Gift Aid declarations will be available upon request from Rev John Allan at Sunday services.
Thank you for your continued support of our ministry together as we continue our journey in these challenging times.

If you have any questions then please get in touch. My contact details are 07912 359237 and

Nick Kilford
PCC Treasurer - All Saints Church, Alrewas
