Fair Trade Shop for Weymouth

On Tuesday 10th October 2017 the Fairbridge Trust opened The Bridge Fair Trade Shop at 24 Trinity Road, next to Holy Trinity Church. Fairbridge Trust is a CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) set up by members of Holy Trinity Church with a vision to promote Fair Trade but also to support local and overseas charities working for the relief of poverty. They will continue to run the fair trade stall in church each week.

Canon Andrew blessed the shop before it opened and pictured are some church members and volunteers who will be running the shop.

The inspiration for the shop grew out of the regular church Traidcraft stall and will continue to stock a wide range of Traidcraft cards, gifts and food as well as all manner of fair trade products from a variety of suppliers.

The shop supports the Dorset Murugi Community Projects by selling bags and jewellery from Kenya and the Salisbury Diocesan Medical Link in Sudan and South Sudan; and by selling cards by local artist Keith Whittock.

Buying fair trade goods means farmers, producers and artisans get a fair price for their work, better living conditions, healthier and safer working conditions and the opportunity to provide education for their children. They have a say in how the fair trade premium is spent to help their local community. Fair trade benefits the environment by maximising the use of sustainable and recycled materials. Please support the shop and fair trade as much as you can.

    Change is Always a Challenge

    Most of our readers will know by now that, by the time you read this, St Nicholas church will have permanently closed and the site will up for sale. Change is always a challenge for us all. But it can be exciting too. The Church in every generation and in every era of its life has always had challenges to face because of the changing circumstances in which she finds herself. Our present age is no different.

Vicar’s letter for March 2018

“In a vivid adage, coined I think by the Swiss theologian Karl Barth, the life of the Christian community is perfectly defined - The Church gathers for worship and scatters for mission.The picture described by Barth is worth remembering.”

    Community Easter Event 24 March 2018

    Due to schools not breaking up until Maundy Thursday this event replaces the Holy Week club which was previously run in this parish for children. Both Janet Hall and Jenny Keates felt that it gave them the opportunity to try something different - hence the idea of a Community Easter Event. It will be free and run from 2pm to 4pm with lots of activities and of course refreshments.

    Help would be welcome with the following:

    Serving tea, coffee and cake and washing up etc. Provision of Easter cupcakes

    Would you please let Janet (01305 839737) or Jenny (01305 788136) know if you can assist with the teas and coffees (they will provide) and a list will go up in the organ transept for the provision of cupcakes. If you would like a flyer to help promote the event then please ask for a copy.

    Thank You.
