Sunday School Update (by Jenny Keates)

As you may be aware, Marion has decided to step down from the running of the Sunday School. Flair, one of her assistants, has also had to stop for the time being. We are grateful to them both for their time and dedication to our children at church. Thank you both.

As from the 17th September, I have put together a new rota and am pleased to announce that both Krys Fursman and Kim Newstead will be continuing. In addition, I welcome Heather Hicks and Betty Warner, both of whom ran the Sunday School alongside me back in the late 70’s and early 80’s. (Guess we must want to relive our youth!) My daughter Sarah will also be joining the team. I am very excited and encouraged by the support shown and feel that together we will make a great team; I hope the children within our church will also benefit and grow along with us. So thank you all too.
In reading this you may be thinking that we have a lot of helpers, but there is a requirement for there to be at least two adults per session, one of whom must be DBS checked. I would like the rota to work out at one session per month for each pair, so that they can enjoy working with the children whilst still being able to attend the whole service on the other weeks. It also allows for plenty of session planning time. Therefore, I would still welcome some additions to the team. If you think this is for you then please speak to me or another team member.
There will be some other changes which will take effect from 8th October. The main one is a new start time of 9.45am. This will allow Canon Andrew or another member of the clergy to spend 10 minutes with the Sunday school each week. This will further enhance our link between Sunday School and church. We will be keeping the same resource materials, as this already fits in with the weekly readings in church.
Thank you all for your continued support and kindness to our children in church.

    Thought for the Week 15 Apr 18

    It is such a pity that we tend to see the resurrection as something which belongs to another time and another place - Palestine of two thousand years ago. If the Easter proclamation is true, then we too can encounter the risen Christ. He will not insulate us from reality. He will not lift us out of the tears, the sweat and grime of our humanity to take us into a dream-world, but he will be with us where we are, helping us to give meaning and beauty to our lives, especially to the painful and dark parts. Canon Andrew

    Faith in the Market Place

    Fancy choosing a topical subject and discussing it in a group? How do we relate our faith to what is happening around us? You choose a subject and we can discuss over refreshments. The suggestion is once a month at Gracewell after the Wednesday Eucharist for an hour. We all live in the Market Place of our communities. Come and say what you think and how you feel! If you are interested, sign the list at the back of Holy Trinity church or phone email or tell Father Andrew (see "Contact Us" page).

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!’.”

    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.

    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
