Weekly notices and messages from our Church leadership team.
Hello from Trinity!
This week we’ve got news for you on Sunday Celebrations back in person, an online memorial book for HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, Youth Team update & how to join our church, Electoral Roll.
We are now welcoming people back in person for all our celebrations!
You can still worship with us online but book through our website if you would like to be with us in the church building.
Please note that capacity is limited during our roof works. Once we are full in church, we are offering an overflow space in Trinity House so people can watch a live stream with others.
This week we have a Gathered Sunday pattern of celebrations:
We are together for The Ten, The Four, and The Six.
The Four is particularly geared for all ages to share in together
Please book your spaces online
Trinity Youth are also gathering in person at 10 am in Fusion for Sunday Space.
If you do decide to come in person please remember your mask and the need to keep to current physical distancing rules!
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh
Following the sad news of the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip. The Duke of Edinburgh, we continue to pray for Her Majesty The Queen and all members of The Royal Family. May they be sustained and comforted in the resurrection power and hope in Jesus Christ. The Church of England has created a special online memorial book, which everyone is invited to sign here.

Rule of Life - Feed the mind
If you have some time booked out over the coming months and want a good book to read then our partner, St Andrews Bookshop has some great recommendations and sale items on their website: https://standrewsbookshop.co.uk/
Two we can highly recommend are on sale - Pete Grieg’s updated version of ‘God on Mute’ and John Mark Comer’s ‘The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry’. You can also see what people are saying about ‘Gentle and Lowly’ by Dane Ortland - recently described by Mike Pilavachi (from Soul Survivor) as ‘The best book I have ever read!”

As part of the Church of England, we don’t have a formal list of members here at Trinity. However, our ‘Electoral Roll’ is an official list of the people who worship regularly and so qualify to take part in our Annual Meeting process and most importantly, stand and vote for people to serve as members of the PCC. If you have worshipped with us regularly over the last six months or more and would like to add your name to the Electoral roll you can register through our Churchsuite database using the link below:
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.
