2022 Christian Aid Week with Trinity Mill Hill

2022 Christian Aid Week with Trinity Mill Hill

At Trinity, we are setting ourselves a Christian Aid Week Challenge of walking

3 Million Steps this May, whilst benefiting from some exercise and raising vital funds.

Last year, we walked 1.7 million steps and raised an incredible £2000; so this year we are stretching our target (and our fitness levels!) to 3 million steps with the aim of raising £3000; thus seeking to make an impact to even more lives around the world.

We appreciate that these are tough financial times, so please only give what you can afford; whatever you can give is very much appreciated and will change the lives of many.

Together as a community we will aim to reach our goal and raise what we can in order to do our bit for Christian Aid. Thank you.

A message from the Rev David Newton

A message from the Rev David Newton

The Lord’s Prayer is written from a perspective where God is all powerful and we are, it seems, like very small children wholly dependent on his benevolence for our wellbeing. This seems in complete contrast with the warnings about global warming; despite the vast size of the earth, we have collectively brought about a dangerous situation and it is up to us to sort it out. I for one have never thought to pray, ‘Dear Lord please keep the atmosphere from heating up by more than two degrees Celsius by 2050.’ 

Somehow, we need to bridge these two contrasting views of the human situation. The Lord’s Prayer rightly reminds us that God is the source of our being, all we have is a gift from God, and all we have achieved is done through the skills and resources God has given us. The Prayer also reminds us that God is the epitome of all goodness, and it is to him that we look to discern what our course of action should be if we are to make a ‘success’ of the life we have been granted. Somehow in our current situation we need to keep these two things firmly fixed in our mind as we roll up our sleeves, and get on with fixing our problems.

Open House

Our fortnightly meetings on Thursday afternoons for older people continue to be enjoyed.

During lockdown they were held remotely, but since September 2021 we have held hybrid meetings with most people coming in person to The Eversfield Centre and some joining us by Zoom from their home. 

We have had a variety of interesting and entertaining talks. Our last afternoon of the Spring term is “Fun with Handbells”. We start again after Easter on Thursday 28 April with an illustrated travel talk. On 12th May we shall hold a fund raising afternoon for Christian Aid with stories of some of their projects and a Cream Tea. Our summer term programme of talks and entertainments will as ever be varied. Open House is as its name suggests, open to all who would like to come.

Concert at Trinity Church

On Saturday 12 March a concert of beautiful music was held at The Broadway.

A full church enjoyed a varied programme of pieces for the organ, piano, violin, voice and double bass, performed by our musicians and some of our young people. We were also entertained by a group of adults and young people from Ukraine.

The concert was followed by a delicious tea and a retiring collection for the Emergency Fund for Ukraine raised just short of £1000. A very memorable afternoon.

A Message from Rev David Newton – Easter 2021

A Message from Rev David Newton – Easter 2021

Dear Friends,

We are entering Holy Week and in addition to the items mentioned in my last letter, a booklet has been produced to allow you to follow the stations of the cross, either at home, or by making your own individual/household walk on Good Friday and pausing to pray at suitable intervals.

Also with this mailing is the nomination for Elder’s vacancies that arise in 2021. The instructions for voting and how to return the forms are shown on the 1st page.

Finally, with it being a bank holiday week end, it is not likely that will be able to post the service used by Trinity on Easter Sunday in time to reach you before the weekend, so also enclosed is the ‘12 baskets’ service for Easter Day.

I wish you are a very blessed Easter and that the resurrection may become real for you in this season as lockdown restrictions are eased.

Yours in Christ,

Rev David Newton

We are a charity that has been offering support to the elderly in the Mill Hill and Burnt Oak area for over 40 years. All our regular events and services in their current form have been cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

We will be supporting our clients in ways that come within Government guidelines and this means that we will need many more volunteers over the forthcoming weeks and months.

If anyone can spare a few hours and are prepared to be/or are DBS checked we would be very grateful of your help and support.

Trinity Church Christmas Services

Trinity Church Christmas Services

Once again we have experienced memorable occasions over the Christmas season.

Our young people and Junior Church leaders led our Gift Service on 15 December, when, as usual, we brought gifts for the mothers and children at a local refuge. We were reminded about journeys that we undertake and how the journeys that Mary and Joseph had to take with baby Jesus were hard, arduous and uncomfortable.

We decided this year to have our annual Candlelight Carol Service at 4pm rather than in the evening. As anticipated this proved to be a better time and we welcomed a large congregation. We enjoyed Christmas songs and anthems by the choir and we all celebrated the Christmas story in readings and carols.

The festive atmosphere was maintained as we all tucked into a Christmas tea in our beautifully decorated Church.
