    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.

    HOUSE TO HOUSE COLLECTIONS

    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

    YOUR Choir Needs YOU

    As we journey through Lent towards Easter, many of us take the time to both reflect on what has passed and look forward to new life and new beginnings in the future.  Members of Holy Trinity’s choir are no different and, prompted by several photographs dated from 2002, have been evaluating the choir’s role in worship and also its composition.  The most striking feature seems to be the current dearth of boy or girl choristers - each photograph conveys a complement of at least ten compared with the current, single, child member.

    This is obviously a concern for both now and in the future because the choir, as a living, evolving body needs new blood in order to ensure not only its growth but its very existence.  Musically, treble voices add an extra dimension to the sound of worship - without them some pieces of music cannot be performed.
    As a result of this, the choir is keen to try a range of approaches in order to encourage children and young people to come and join us - after all choirs are enjoying a huge surge in popularity at the moment, something not many people would have predicted only a few years ago (a testament to the power of television, perhaps)?

    The most obvious tactic is to strengthen relations with Holy Trinity Primary School and encourage pupils to take part in some joint musical ventures with choir and wider church to give them a flavour of what it involves and what we are like.

    We also have plans for a junior/training choir which would join with the main choir on specific occasions, e.g. weddings, and sing suitably selected music.  When proficient, junior members would be invited (with much pomp and ceremony) to join the main choir.  We also envisage a social side to the junior choir to ensure that members feel that their contribution and commitment is valued and to encourage friendship and ‘team-building.’ During one of his visits to Yorkshire, Derek (our Director of Music) visited St. Mary’s Church, Masham which obviously has a vibrant choir which records its activities daily in a dedicated book which is available for anyone to look through - something Holy Trinity could emulate.

    Our ideas and aims are all very well but will come to nothing if we cannot break down the barriers, dispel the fear and encourage people of all ages to give it a go.  We welcome new members of any age or voice range - can you sing? You don’t have to be a virtuoso - just be able to hold a tune (and preferably follow simple instructions - but if you can’t, don’t let that stop you - it’s never stopped anyone before)! Do you know anyone, young or old who might like to join us?  Can you think of any clubs or societies where we could advertise? (Would you like to join our press gang)?

    Our vision is to report this time next year that we have made some progress - help us to make that vision a reality.

Vicar’s letter for May 2018

“Over the last few weeks we have been bombarded with literature from all political parties as well as candidates canvassing at our doors for local elections. When the apostles elected a successor to the traitor Judas they simply drew lots, no doubt believing that by doing so they were placing the decision in God’s hands. ”

Thought for the Week 20th May 2018

The great feast of Pentecost is a celebration of the Spirit on us, Christ’s disciples of our time. Will this coming mark a new beginning in our lives? Everybody wants to change the world but few want to change themselves. Pentecost is an invitation and an opportunity to let God’s Spirit change us even a little to start.

Canon Andrew
