Church at the Farm!
Join us for ‘Church at the Farm’ on Sunday 4th July
Fully in line with the continuing covid regulations, on Sunday 4th July we are inviting everyone in the Trinity Church family to join us at Leigh Court, which is located 5 miles from central Cheltenham, for two very special Celebrations and a community picnic lunch in-between.
We have had to simplify our plans because of level 3 lockdown continuing longer than hoped. However, we will be able to sing in an outside space and sit down in a large field to eat our own food with social distancing and groups of up to 30 people. Please see booking details on Churchsuite.
You can book spaces to come at 11 am and stay on for an open-air picnic or please book to join us at 12.15 pm to eat first and then join in the second celebration at 2 pm. Both celebrations will follow the same format and space is limited, so please only book for one! We obviously hope that most people will be able to make their own way to the farm but we are also exploring options to provide transport for those without cars.
Youth at the Farm!
If you are 11-18yrs come and join us in the special Youth Zone which will run from 12:30 pm-1:30 pm - we will eat lunch together (please also bring your own food) and play some fun garden/outside games. Please book a ticket to let us know that you are joining us, we would love to see you there!
Young Adults at the Farm!
And please see here for an event being held the night before on Saturday evening (3rd July) especially for Young Adults.
Wednesday 5:30 pm-7 pm- Every week held at All Saints Academy.
We’re excited to be offering free netball training sessions for all girls aged 11-18. These sessions are designed to create a safe and encouraging environment for girls to grow in confidence, character, knowledge, and skill of the game netball where they feel able to invite friends and grow in community. All levels welcome. Sign up below!
Church family picnics in Pittville Park!
Subject to Covid restrictions (and the weather!), we are planning to gather informally for a picnic on the Pump Room lawn in Pittville Park after our 10 am Celebrations on Sunday 11th and 25th of July. Everyone is very welcome - please bring your own food and drinks.
Dads/Youngsters Fire Night!
Date/Time: Saturday 26th June @2pm - 27th June @8am
This event is going to be wild!
A time for Dads and a youngster to have some one-to-one time, amidst a fun programme of adventure with loads of others! The intended age range for children this time around is 7-11years old. If you have more than one youngster in this age range - don’t worry there will be more of these events in the future and we would encourage a natural priority for anyone who has not been on something like this with you before.
The programme will include a hike, bonfire building, a BBQ, and more! The cost is £15 per booking (dad & child) and this will cover our evening meal and mini breakfast, and a few other resources for the event.
For more information and to sign-up please follow this link.
Church Family News
Please let us know if there is news we can share with the church family. As well as items for prayer we love hearing stories of God at work and other encouragements.
As well as fighting new slates across most of one side of the roof we now also have solar PV panels starting to appear! fitted. Replacement masonry stonework is now also now on site and being fitted into place by a specialist team of stone masons. Please keep praying for the team and for great weather!
Pastoral Prayer and Support.
In these challenging times, prayer is our greatest gift and weapon. Through email@example.com we can circulate your requests to a network of several hundred people.
For pastoral support, as well as offering Connect and our network of Life Groups, we have a team of people who can offer to listen and care. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring the church office.
If you are not already in one of our Life Groups or new to Trinity please also see details on our Connect Central LifeGroup and how we can support you in prayer and with practical help.
We love hearing stories about what God has done in people’s lives.
We also love sharing those stories with others, through creative media and good, old fashioned storytelling! We would love to know what God has been doing in your life.
Keep in mind that your story is ultimately about giving God glory for what He has done, so specific names of people involved are not necessary.
Your story will be kept confidentially, but we may contact you to request sharing your story at a later date.
We love to stand with each other in the power of prayer.
We send out regular emails with requests for prayer. If you’d like to be involved in praying for these needs, or if you have a prayer request of your own, please get in touch.
