Minister’s New Year Message
A new year. A new decade. New opportunities?!
This past year has flown by. There have been some real joys,
especially Deb Crahart starting as our shared family worker,
Messy Church, a full youth club, new faces amongst us in
worship, an away day to Trellech and TLEGS which continues
to inspire. There has been some sorrow, too, with the loss of
loved people, health issues, the struggle for the Monday
afternoon ladies’ group and the departure of Head over Heels
(our long term hirer of the upper hall). The ups and downs of
life mirrored in our Church life.
A new year beckons. Hopes?
To see Messy Church continue to thrive and develop, to see new
outreach ventures especially through Deb’s team that will
develop, to continue in the schools and to listen to God’s voice
that we may start new ventures; does anyone MUSICAL feel a
call to start a ‘Singing for the Brain’ group in Trinity? If so
please come and have a word with me…..and I hope we will be
surprised by God on a regular basis.
On a personal level, I wish to thank you all for your prayers,
love and kindness. I feel supported in this role of being
Superintendent by the good people of Trinity [as well as
Bishpool, Shaftesbury and Langstone] and know that this is the
place God wants us to be at this time. May 2020 bring each of
us an unexpected joy by the God revealed in Jesus Christ who
seeks to bless us beyond our imaginations.
