Weekly Pew Sheet

WELCOME! 22nd April 2018 Fourth Sunday of Easter

Thought for the week from Canon Andrew
Today is Good Shepherd Sunday.  It was a title attributed to Jesus and in turn the Church gives that title to those who are called to servant leadership among the people of God.  We pray on this Sunday for all those whose vocation it is to lead God’s people as priests.  Priests are needed to nourish the flock in God’s Word and Sacrament and to share with them the Good News and the experience of the Father’s love.

Today at Holy Trinity
8am Said Eucharist
9.45am Sunday School (Crypt)
10am Sung Eucharist

Hymns: Christ Triumphant (sheets), 234, 184, 428

During Communion the Choir will sing the anthem:
“Brother James’ Air” (arr Jacob)
Our Organist today is David Bruce-Payne

Refreshments will be served after this Service

3pm St George’s Day Parade Service

We pray for the sick: Dee Allenby, Marion Cooper, Alan Ford, Beryl Hamlet, Antonio Hartley, Val Hemmens, Dan Hoskins, Jessica Jacobs, John Kemble, Michael Kooge, Debbie Lane, Maddison Lane, Nellie Levey, Peter Nash, Christopher Newbery, Sarah Ray, Glen Sands, Deb Smith (Priest), Mary & Peter Storrs, Margaret Tambling, Geoffrey Walton (Priest), Caron Yardley, Isabelle, Julia
We remember the recently departed:
Jean Rawson, Liz Hill, Lewis (Tim) Limming, Rodger Carter
We remember those with anniversaries at this time: Edwin Legg, David & Graham Knipe, Isolda Prideaux, Reginald Harris, Doreen Palmer, Anne Helen. Doreen Johnstone, Peggy McGivney, Reginald Thorne, Barbara Hawkins, Caroline Sutton
Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord,
and let light perpetual shine upon them;
May they rest in peace, and rise in glory.

    Christian Aid Week 13 - 19 May 2018

    This year Holy Trinity is supporting Christian Aid Week in several different ways. You can help:

    I WITNESS - 30th April until 20th May 2018

    A photographic exhibition in Holy Trinity Church depicting Christian Aid’s work in Haiti. Continuing relief work and the provision of earthquake resistant homes is the focus for Christian Aid Week this year. Come and see the exhibition but help by giving up a little of your time to steward so that we can keep the church open and welcome as many people as possible to the exhibition.

    BIG BREKKIE - Saturday 19th May 2018 9 – 11am

    Join us for a delicious ‘continental style’ breakfast and meet speaker Fiona Daborn. Tickets £3.00

    BUCKET COLLECTION ON THE TOWN BRIDGE - Saturday 19th May 2018 10 – 4pm

    This was very successful last year. We need 2 people at a time to stand for 1 or 2 hours on the Bridge with a large collecting bucket and people will come to you to donate.


    It would be really good to continue this tradition as much as we can as it is a good way of meeting the people of the parish. If you are a regular collector and happy to continue please let us know. Marcia Headon and Linda Perry

Vicar’s letter for April 2018

“WE HAVE JUST completed the greatest celebration of the Christian year: the Feast of Easter. Now we hear the wonderful stories of how Jesus appeared to so many different people after his resurrection: proof indeed that, as he promised, he has risen from the dead. We are Easter people who share in the new life which Jesus has won for us and so we boldly say: ‘Alleluia, Christ is risen! He is risen indeed, alleluia!’.”
