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

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.

 

Elder’s Districts

Elder’s Districts

Elders’ Districts “Get togethers”

We have started periodic get togethers in our Elders’ Districts. The first was a tea party, held in the summer, and the second a coffee morning in mid October at another member’s home, for members and friends in a different couple of Districts. These are social occasions and we have welcomed people who have not been able to attend our Sunday Services for some time.

Elders’ Awayday, Saturday 19 October at Wesley Hall, Barnet.

This Awayday gave us some time to reflect on issues that our regular monthly Elders’ Meetings do not allow us to cover as adequately as we want. We recognised that between us we offer much time and many different skills, but we discussed and shall continue to explore different ways of organising and sharing our responsibilities both on Sundays and in our pastoral care. Modern life-styles and pressures mean that regular attendance at Sunday Services is not possible for many and that will be an ongoing challenge for us. We want to improve our communication in its many forms as we seek to develop our vision for the future.

Open House

Summer 2020 Update

As with so many other events, Open House had to stop in March because of the lockdown. We continue to think of our members and have periodic contact with them by phone and mail . We hope  that it will be possible to arrange some Open House meetings again in the autumn. As soon as plans can be put in place, we shall make sure that information is made available.
