Trinity is a place of worship, meeting and quietness in a distracted world.
Its people are seeking to grow together in the love of God revealed in Jesus Christ and are working to extend his kingdom of justice and peace.
You are welcome to join in our fellowship and service of others.

SERGEANT PEPPER NIGHT

We’ll have ‘live’ Beatles’ songs from Andy Jones, a talented local musician and songwriter, readings from Beatles’ lyrics by Rev’d Philip Caton and some of their greatest music in between. Refreshments will be served from 6.15 p.m. Come as you are but it would be great if you could dig out or hire hats, pants, beards, shirts, kaftans, jackets, (wigs!) or any memorabilia of the ‘summer of love in 1967’ A splendid time is guaranteed for all! Peace man!

Sunday Club Teachers
The Sunday Club are looking for 4 leaders to join the team.  Karen and Hayley, two of our leaders are now on fulltime university courses so it has been agreed that they should step down for the time being until they have completed their training.  We wish them every success in their endeavours.  Please keep them in your prayers as they also have 8 children between them to care for, respect! Harriet is also away on her travels until next year and Rita has retired.  If you have a passion for passing on your faith to the children please speak to me or Joan Miller.

Many thanks Janetta Lawrance

The Children’s Society

It equates to one hour per month which is 12 hours per year which is not much to ask to help keep our church looking clean and beautiful!!

Please speak to Margaret Pegg or Sue Palmer if you would like to join either group or if existing members want to change times! Many thanks.
