Weekly notices and messages from our Church leadership team.
Along with every church across the UK we have had to review our arrangements for Sunday Worship during the new lockdown. We are delighted that the government has recognised the special and essential nature of public worship but of course we are all having to take account of our own local circumstances in deciding what to do.
Sadly, we have concluded that for the time being our main Sunday Celebrations - The Ten, every week and The Four, every other week, must be on-line only - you won’t be able to attend in person. Naturally we hope that the vast majority of our church family will join us and continue to share in worship together in this way - it’s not the same as being together in person but God is still at work! Please see the Trinity Online section of our website for details on how to connect.
We recognise though that a small number of people find being on-line very difficult or just need a safe spiritual space to meet with God. For this reason at 6pm on every Sunday we are going to be offering a short and very simple time of worship in our building - there won’t be a band of any kind and numbers will have to be kept very low but there will be prayer, Bible readings and some ways to worship while we spread out in our building. A space we hope for those who really need this in these most difficult of times. Please see the ‘save me a seat’ section of our website for more details and special information on the ways we will be keeping people safe.
In these challenging times please know that we are with you and can help in a number of ways
We want to root everything we do in prayer. As well as encouraging one another in our personal patterns of prayer, we also give specific space in the life of the church for group prayer in different contexts. Through our Prayermail we regularly send out emails with requests for prayer to a network of several hundred people. If you’d like to be involved in praying or if you have a prayer request of your own, please get in touch.
For pastoral support, we also offer a range of ways of helping. We encourage everyone to join one of our Life groups and become part of a smaller network for day to day encouragement and support. If you re not in a group at the moment please join us at Connect as a first step.
There are times though when life brings additional challenges and so we have a team of people who can offer more specialist listening and pastoral care. Please email email@example.com or ring the church office to see if we can help.
There's still time to sign-up!

"Proverbs 31 Woman - Unattainable perfection or invitation?"
What pressures do you feel as a woman in your situation?
We will be using the woman at the end of Proverbs 31 as a stimulus to reflect on and explore the influences on our daily journeys in life as women - each uniquely created and called, yet daughters of the same King, reflecting His glory like the different sides of a diamond.
How is God calling you/us in 2021?

If you are new to Trinity or not currently in a Life Group, then Connect is the place to start getting linked in to our church family.
We meet every week on a Wednesday evening from 7.30pm-9.00pm - currently on zoom.
Each week is led by a member of our Church leadership team. There is time to chat and get to know other people, some worship and then sharing around the Bible together, usually using notes provided by our Sunday speakers. We welcome people new to faith as much as those who have been on the journey for a while. All are very welcome!
Please email email@example.com if you would like to know more.
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.
