We are loved and cherished by an awesome God who created the Universe,
including our Star, the Sun (shown below).  He chose our insignificant little
Planet, Earth, on which to be born and live among us.  He was tortured, died
and embalmed but on the 3rd day he arose from the dead - His name is Jesus
and he wants to live in our hearts today.  Incredible but true.  Read more . .

The disciples asked Jesus “Then who in the world can be saved?”                                                                    Please Scroll Down >>>

As Jesus was starting out on his way to Jerusalem, a man came running up to him, knelt down, and asked, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”  “Why do you call me good?” Jesus asked. “Only God is truly good.  But to answer your question, you know the commandments: ‘You must not murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not testify falsely. You must not cheat anyone. Honour your father and mother.’ ” “Teacher,” the man replied, “I’ve obeyed all these commandments since I was young.”  Looking at the man, Jesus felt genuine love for him. “There is still one thing you haven’t done,” he told him. “Go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”  At this the man’s face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions.  Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God!”  This amazed them. But Jesus said again, “Dear children, it is very hard to enter the Kingdom of God.  In fact, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!”  The disciples were astounded. “Then who in the world can be saved?” they asked.  Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.”  Then Peter began to speak up. “We’ve given up everything to follow you,” he said.  “Yes,” Jesus replied, “and I assure you that everyone who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or property, for my sake and for the Good News,  will receive now in return a hundred times as many houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and property—along with persecution. And in the world to come that person will have eternal life.  But many who are the greatest now will be least important then, and those who seem least important now will be the greatest then. ”     Mark 10/17-31 N.L.T.

MESSY  CHURCH

By now, many of you will have read from Ruth’s Family Worker’s reports that the idea of beginning a Messy Church journey for our families has been very much in our minds and our prayers. Embarking on this journey has involved Chris, Ruth and I joining with others to increase our understanding of the Messy Church format. Firstly, we met with members of Wigan Baptist Church, who have successfully held Messy Church for a number of years. Their knowledge, advice and enthusiasm was infectious and so plans began to formulate.

On March 17th, Chris, Ruth and I signed up by Zoom for a training course, organised by the Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF), which was entitled: “Messy Master Class Reimagining” and was led by Jane Leadbetter, based in Liverpool and Dawn Savidge in Halifax, both part of the BRF team.

The aim was to help teams and leaders of Messy Church feel confident and equipped to be or reimagine Messy Church in a Covid-secure way that is appropriate for their own context.

A video was shown where three Messy Church leaders described how they had continued to hold sessions by Facebook, Zoom, Activity bags and Trails- all with a focus on Jesus- providing accessible fun within Covid guidelines. This I found very heartening and recognised that, here at Trinity, through the hard work and vision of our Family Worker, many of the ideas had already been put into practice.

A further discussion centred around meeting the needs of families NOW in a post- Covid era. Connecting with families who have not been Church members, but who are seeking something different from screen time, seems a very good place to start with sharing Jesus. Messy Church would meet the social needs of families; create and build new friendships and, through activities allowing opportunities to express feelings and lead to conversations about God’s love. Initially, it might have to be outdoors, but it will be purposefully faith based.

Being with others who are experiencing the joys, and difficulties, in reaching out to families was enlightening and reaffirming. I, personally, felt that both meeting with our Baptist friends and the BRF team has provided not only a host of practical ideas and suggestions, but the necessary enthusiasm to move forward in providing Messy Church hospitality here at Trinity.

Sunday Services

We are pleased to announce that Trinity United Reformed Church is returning to full church life with Sunday services now starting at 10.45am, lasting around an hour and include singing.  However, please read the 8th September letter to the congregation and check the ‘Diary of Events’ page for more details and times of these and other activities which are now restarting.

Please note, our Minister is no longer publishing an on-line Sunday service.

FLOWERS IN CHURCH          Please scroll down

As we try to return to more normal times in church, we hope to start having fresh flowers on the communion table again, which can be given out at the end of the service. We are however, short of arrangers to join the team, and would also welcome any new people who would like to donate money for flowers in memory of someone or just to give thanks. Please speak to Glenda or any of the Elders if you can help. Thank you.
