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.

    Holy Trinity Church Roof

    All the scaffolding is down and we can report that the roof is now, as far as we are aware, waterproof. This of course came with a huge cost but needed to be done. We are now applying for grants to see if we can cover more of the cost of £40.000 to pay for it. Last December we received £10,000 from the Muton Trust for which we are extremely grateful. Any kind donations thankfully received! We are about £12,000 short of our target.

Vicar’s letter for July 2018/August 2018

“God doesn’t have a holiday!

Working through a desk groaning with paper on a glorious sunny summer morning, I just happened to wish out loud that I was on holiday. However, I was soon reminded by a parishioner of the wonderful truth that God doesn’t have holidays.
