Notices of Week of 12 May 2022

Food Bank

Thank you for all your donations. We are managing to take a box to the Salvation Army every other week. Of course it would be great if we could increase this frequency. But thank you for all your donations. Here is a message from Alison Hewitt, Corp Assistant at the Salvation Army.

I just wanted to just send you a quick email to let you know how thrilled we are with your donations for our food bank. I have just been putting it away after Felicity’s visit and thought it was wonderful.  Thank you to you and those who helped to set up the collection point and to everyone who has so kindly donated.

We seem to be seeing more families who are finding things difficult, so it really is brilliant to receive all your lovely donations.

Thanks so much

Every Blessing


Pray Ministry Team members wanted

Praying for people on a Sunday morning during and after the services has been an exciting ministry to be involved in at Holy Trinity Church. We would like to start offering this again at the 10.30. If this ministry is something you are interested in getting involved with please get in touch.

We are hosting a prayer ministry training event on Thursday 19th May at 7.30 the Arches room 5. If you would like to attend please let the office or myself know.

Email Tel 01765 605865

Looking forward to developing a Holy Spirit empowered team to facilitate the pouring out of Gods goodness through prayer.
