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.

this morning to Rose Barton, Trinity Arts Co-ordinator who will be speaking to us at the end of the 10.15 a.m. service about her role.

Welcome to the family and friends of Alexander Johnson and Charlotte Eileen who are to be baptised today at 12.30 p.m.

As I mentioned at the end of last Sunday morning’s service there is an envelope enclosed with your weekly notices marked ‘Holy Trinity London Fire Appeal’. It would be really helpful if all donations could be returned by next Sunday if possible but no later than Sunday 9th July. My intention is that all the money raised will go to local churches in London, working directly with all those affected by the tragedy of the Grenfell Tower.
Thank you, Rod Garner

will be held next Sunday 2nd July at 10.15 a.m. with members of the uniformed organisations in attendance.

Next Sunday in the context of a simple evening service we shall welcome Harry Kessler from the Southport Reformed Synagogue. Harry has had a fascinating life story that has been shaped by the experience of Nazism and being a refugee. He will share his story with us and there will be time for discussion.

Do join us. Refreshments available from 6.15 p.m.

The following candidates are to be baptised on Sunday 2nd July at 12.30 p.m.:

  • Olivia May Lucas
  • James Cottrell
  • George Scott Seddon
  • Olivia Diane Seddon

This will be held on Saturday 8th July from 9.30a.m. – 3.30 p.m. An envelope with your name(s) should be available now at the back of church. If there isn’t one please take one of the blank envelopes on the same table. They contain exactly the same material. Thank you.

A very big thank you to everyone from my Trinity family for their cards, phone calls & words of support while I've been in hospital. Special thanks to Sue for her chauffeuring. All the prayers & candles have helped me recover quicker than possible. There are battles ahead but with your help & the Lord's I'll be up to it.
Anne Cochrane.

Our sincere thanks to everyone who gave us bottles and donations for our stall yesterday and of course, thanks too to all the “punters” who came to have a go! We really appreciate everyone’s generosity. I promise you that I won’t be banging-on about bottles again until September at the earliest!

Don’t forget that if you’d like to come along to our annual lunch out at Auberge on July 5th you need to get a menu off me to-day because I need to have all your orders & money by Wednesday 28th. Hope you’ll be able to come!

Rwanda visit
Pete and I will be in Rwanda for 2 weeks from today as part of our work for our charity, the Shyira Trust.  The new district hospital will be opened by the President to which we are invited to attend, we will also be visiting friends and scoping out new projects for the charity.  We would value your prayers for our time there.
Many thanks, Rev Jane

Trinity Arts
are proud to announce our next concert at 7.30 pm on Saturday, 1st July.  It will be a triple bill featuring brass, organ and choir - many of you know how thrilling each of these musical forms sound in Trinity's wonderful acoustic; we're really very excited about putting all three together.  Intrada Brass are making their first visit to Trinity and are a group of about nine professional musicians who come together to play this type of concert.  The organist will be our good friend Prof Ian Tracey and they will be joined by the church and chapel choirs, the ensemble under the direction of our Director of Music, Ian Wells.

Do come and join us for what we know will be a thrilling concert. 

Tickets are on sale this morning in the Parish Centre priced at £10. 

Go on, treat yourselves - as you've heard me say so often

‘You know you're worth it!’ Bob Ball

Dear Holy Trinity family please could you on at say a little prayer for these three wonderful young men who are being Ordained. Left to Right is James Williams (who went to Holy Trinity Primary) Michael Edwards (my son and he also went to Holy Trinity Primary and Beavers etc) and Adam Venables.  All three are from Southport and attended Elm Youth Club and Regents Theological College.  Just now waiting to hear where The Rev’d Michael Edwards will begin the next part of his Christian journey.

Galloway's Society for the Blind
Derek Miller is taking on the challenging crossing of Morecambe Bay from Arnside to Grange-over-Sands on Sunday 2 July in the company of Cedric Robinson M B E, the Queen's Guide to the Sands, and hundreds of Galloway's supporters.   Would you please sponsor him.  There is a form at the back of Church.  
Many thanks for your generosity.

On Sunday evening 16th July at 6.30 p.m. I will be introducing some new songs and music for worship including pieces from Bob Chilcott’s Little Jazz Mass. It’s not really jazzy and if you come you’ll enjoy it!. The items will be set in the context of a simple act of worship with refreshments available afterwards around 7.30 p.m. A nice way to spend an early Sunday evening and a chance to hear some new music that lifts hearts and mind.
Do join us.

In the aftermath of the attack last Monday outside the Finsbury Park Mosque in London I called on the local Imam, Soyful Alam and his colleagues at the Mosque on Sussex Road. I had not notified them of my call but was received warmly. I gave them flowers from Trinity and they gave me food from their Ramadan meal the previous evening. On my arrival they were reciting a passage from the Koran so I sat down and shared in their devotions. Later they explained to me that the passage (spoken in Arabic of course) had referenced both the Old Testament and the Gospels as examples of how we should behave towards one another. In a quiet way, a moving instance of two world faiths receiving hospitality from each other as mutual religious hatreds dominate the headlines.

Choir Recordings
A CD recording of the Church & Chapel Choir’s Remembrance Day concert from last November will be on sale this morning in the Parish Centre.

Treat yourself, you know you're worth it!  Bob Ball

Personal envelopes will be available at the back of church from Sunday 25th June for the Gift Day to be held on Saturday, 8th July. Just in case you are new to Trinity or for any reason choose not to have your personal details in our directory there will also be a supply of unaddressed envelopes containing exactly the same information inside.

Hi all. On Saturday, June 24th, the choir will be performing Handel’s Alexander’s Feast at 7.30 pm, with orchestra and soloists. Hope you will try to come along to hear this tuneful work. Tickets will be on sale today and next Sunday after the service, and also from choir members

Laura Howarth, the daughter of Jane and Ian is to be married in Trinity at 1.00 p.m. on Monday, 7 August. The Choir will be on leave during that month but it would be great if we had a few singers available that day to lead the hymns or maybe even perform a simple anthem. If you are around that day and would be willing to lend your voice please speak to Jane or Ian a.s.a.p. Thank you.

is making good progress and based on the drafts we have received from the printer is going to be a very attractive publication. With a bit of luck it could be available by early June. Watch this space!

If anyone wishes to book the Parish Centre for any events during next year, please contact me on 226768 to check availability before finalising your arrangements
Many thanks –
