Vicar’s February Letter: ‘WE CAN ALL DO SOMETHING’

Canon Andrew Gough – Vicar

The New Year is now in full swing and I have been thinking about the significance of all this for Holy Trinity church.

This year will be very important for us as we ALL need to realise that it takes everyone of us to make a difference to the life of our church. Some of us have been planning ahead a series of concerts and musical events which we are firming up at this time. In order for us to repair and re-order the church and to be successful with grant funding we need to provide evidence that we are playing our part in active fundraising. It will take time and will need planning, organising and many hands doing what is required. There will be furniture to be moved, shopping to get, tables to be set and cooking to be done amongst many other things. We will need people to open the church for musicians to rehearse. It will mean using many of the gifts that God has given us. We can all do something! This is a perfect opportunity for us all to get involved. Even if you are not a regular church member, but want to see Holy Trinity church survive for years to come as part of the towns heritage, we welcome you too. Many of us are already doing many things in church and beyond and I am sure you will continue to do so – thank you. But we need everyone to do something, no matter how big or small.

Help us in 2019 to make a difference so that looking ahead with vision to the opportunity of repairing and re-ordering Holy Trinity church we are not just doing so for ourselves but wanting the iconic building to remain part of the history of Weymouth for the years to come but also to continue to serve our community more effectively in the 21st century.
