Trinity Methodist Church is a Fairtrade Church. This means that all tea, coffee and sugar we use at coffee after Service on Sunday and at our Wednesday Coffee Mornings should be Fairtrade produced, and we aim to use as many other Fairtrade products as possible.
Sunday 6th October was …
Trinity's Harvest Festival.
The theme/charity for this year is Toilet Twinning. So, what is that about?
Flushing away poverty, one toilet at a time "Help bring clean water and safe sanitation to the world's poorest people by linking your loo with a latrine in Africa or Asia".
Suffolk Historic Churches Trust Ride & Stride:-
On Saturday 14th September, Trinity Methodist Church participated in the annual SHCT Ride & Stride. SHCT provides grants for churches and chapels of all denominations towards repair and restoration costs. Half of the money raised will go to Trinity to support our work and mission, half will go to the Trust. Here are two of our Trinity Methodist Recorders, who logged all walkers and cyclists who called at our church.
Messy Church at Trinity
Messy Church witnesses to our Christian faith by sharing the love of God with families. Found across the world (ours has a link with a Messy Church in Port Stanley in the Falklands!) It is Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration. Second Sunday of the month at 4:00pm - 6:00pm with a break for Summer in August.
CHRISTINGLE SERVICE for all ages at Trinity Methodist Church
Messy Christmas was celebrated at Trinity on Sunday 8th December. This was a very special service as we had a Christingle Service, when we re-told the story of God's love for us as we built the Christingle Orange. It was a lovely occasion with both our Messy Church families and Trinity families enjoying one another's company - ages from 3 to 96! We pulled off yet another successful event through our collaborative efforts and shared commitment. Fun, support and friendship are simply added but valued benefits!
Session 105 - God's Creation - Sunday 10th November: -
We explored the Creation story, Genesis 1: 1 - 27 with crafts, activities and of course worship and food! This was one of the most challenging themes we've ever had at Messy Church!
There were opportunities to observe, make things and ask questions, for children and grown-up alike!
Session 104 took place on Sunday 13th October at the usual time. Our theme was ….
This month we had a fun and lively time together to remember all the wonderful things that we have and how we can share them with other people. A smile is one of the gifts you have and is so important, if someone smiles at you then usually you return it – so I hope during the week you will think of the gifts you have and how you can share them with other people.
Our September Session (103!) introduced the charity we are supporting at Harvest Festival this year, Toilet Twinning, where we raised awareness of the fact that 2.3 billion people don't have access to a loo.
