Ride and Stride Result 2017

Following this year’s Ride and Stride event our parish organiser, Anthony de Chazal, has received a letter from the Treasurer of Dorset Historic Churches Trust enclosing a cheque for £335, this being 50% of the funds raised by participants from Holy Trinity. The money raised by Anthony, who cycled to a large number of Dorset churches, and members of the Sociable Strollers, who visited four churches on Portland, was more than double that raised last year.

This annual event raises funds for Dorset Historic Churches Trust in its important role of making grants to churches in the county for their preservation and enhancement. Half of what is collected by Ride and Stride is returned to the church in question.

Maybe some readers might wish to join the organisation as a Friend. You can read about its work in the Annual Report, copies of which are at the back of the church and you will also find application forms there.
The letter to Anthony concludes with a handwritten note “Thank you so much for this terrific support.”

Stop Press:
Information received from Dorset Historic Churches Trust:
Out of 167 churches which took part, Weymouth Holy Trinity came 33rd, and raised the largest amount in the Deanery. Thanks again to all who took part.

    Thought for the Week 24th June 2018

    It seems strange that the disciples should turn to Jesus for help during a storm on the sea of Galilee. After all they were the fishermen. They knew the angry waters and the gusting winds. Jesus was a landlubber with no touch of the sea in his veins. How could he help? Somehow they had a glimpse of him as Lord of the wind and sea, as Lord of all. We are challenged by our gospel today to call on him, to have faith in him, to live by that faith with boundless confidence in him because he is our Father.

    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 June 2018

“CLOSE ENCOUNTERS When Moses came down from the mountain his face shone. He had been close to, and had spoken with, God. (Read Exodus 34:29-35.) Elijah had a similar experience, again, on a mountain top. After a raging storm he recognised God’s presence in the calm and peace, in the ‘still, small voice’. So we sing: ”
