Christmas Cards at Trinity
We all know people on their own or at a distance who need that Christmas card contact during the festive season, but before folk get down to some serious Christmas card writing this is just to let you know that we’re going to have a board at the back of Church for people to attach one card with Christmas wishes for all their friends at Trinity, which will hopefully save on time, finger muscle stress and a tree or two.
As a Church family it makes sense to send one card to include everyone, and maybe youngsters (or oldsters!) would like to make a card to go on the board. Look out for the board soon.
Journey with Bishop Arun Arora through the Archbishop of York’s Advent book 2023. Within these daily readings, Arun Arora guides us in reflecting on the biblical representation of the Church as a global assembly, consisting of individuals from diverse backgrounds, languages, and nations.
