We should be delighted if you are able to attend a special service at 10.30am on Sunday, 26th November, to mark 150 years of Trinity Church. On 26th November, 1873, the foundation stone of Trinity Church was laid, and on Sunday, 26th November, 2023, we commemorate that event with a special service led by our Minister, Rev. Ian Griffiths. There will also be an opportunity to taste anniversary cake, enjoy the flower display, and look into the past with a collection of photographs from the archives, as well as be reminded of the work Trinity and its partners are currently engaged in. We very much hope that you will be able to join us in celebrating and thanking God for the continued life and witness of Trinity. There are some invitation cards in the Welcome Area if you would like to take some to pass on.

Christian Aid Week – 14-20 May 2023

May 20, 2023

The focus for Christian Aid Week is on the country of Malawi. Cyclone Freddy, the longest-lasting tropical cyclone on record (lasting 34 days), hit Malawi and Mozambique in February and March this year. Malawi experienced a year’s worth of rain during the 4-week cyclone. The number of people affected by the tropical cyclone in Malawi continues to rise. Over 508,000 people are displaced and hundreds have lost their lives. There is also an increased risk of malaria and cholera in the immediate aftermath. The gifts to Christian Aid could help farmers in Malawi plant better seeds, secure a fairer price for the crops, and build happier futures for their children.

The Christian Aid Market Place Sale was held on Saturday 20th May 2023. There were stalls with cakes and preserves, books, DVDs, CDs and plants.
