Weekly Pew Sheet

WELCOME! 21st January 2018 Third Sunday in Epiphany

Thought for the Week from Canon Andrew
The Gospel reading for today is the episode of ‘The Wedding Feast at Cana.’  Although none of the Synoptic Gospels record this event, mainstream Christian tradition holds that this is the first public miracle of Jesus.  However, in St John’s Gospel, it has considerable symbolic importance; it is the first of the seven ‘signs’ by which the divine status of Jesus is attested, and around which the Gospel is structured.  St John never speaks of these signs as miracles, as their importance is not in the deed that Jesus performs but in what these deeds indicate about the identity of Jesus.

    Nota Bene Singers Music for Choir and Organ


    In 2002, the group now known as the Nota Bene Singers was founded by Gay Corran a local resident, John Holloway the Musical Director and Ian Fox organist.

    The group meet in Lulworth twice a year; with singers coming from all parts of the country to rehearse for a weekend culminating in a Festal Service in West Lulworth. They have toured twice in France, performing in Cathedrals and churches around Lectoure in the Gers region.

    I am therefore delighted to say that as a special treat they will perform for us in Holy Trinity Church on Sunday 18 February at 6pm when we shall hear them sing a varied programme of music – encompassing Stanford, Durefle, Jenkins, Mendelssohn, Bach and Sumison - and enjoy socialising with them over a finger buffet afterwards.

    They will rehearse in church on Friday evening and all day Saturday (16-17 Feb).

    Tickets - £10 for the concert and £15 for the concert and buffet – are available from Janet Hall who has arranged this event.

    The singers and organist are covering all their costs and giving their services free which means all profits go to Holy Trinity.

    Traidcraft BIG BREW 2017

    Holy Trinity Church
    Saturday 3rd March 2017
    From 10.00 – 3.00

    Once again we will be marking Fairtrade Fortnight by holding a Big Brew in the church. Join us for a cup of Fairtrade tea or coffee and a slice of delicious homemade cake for just £2.00.

    All proceeds will go towards the work of Traidcraft Exchange, supporting their ‘Hidden Entrepreneur’ Appeal which focuses on people in developing countries who have the talent and determination to succeed, but lack the opportunity.

    As an extra bonus, this year every donation will be matched by the UK Government meaning twice as much money goes to help people build businesses and create a better future for their families and communities.
