SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN AT TRINITY & SAFE CHURCH

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 . .

WHAT IS THE GOOD NEWS? - We need now more than ever to return to our loving merciful God, to Jesus!  Please watch the slide show below:

Jesus Walks on the Lake and encourages Peter to join Him.

Immediately after this, Jesus insisted that his disciples get back into the boat and cross to the other side of the lake, while he sent the people home. After sending them home, he went up into the hills by himself to pray. Night fell while he was there alone. Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves. About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. When the disciples saw him walking on the water, they were terrified. In their fear, they cried out, “It’s a ghost!” But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage. I am here! ” Then Peter called to him, “Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.” “Yes, come,” Jesus said. So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. “You have so little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you doubt me?”  When they climbed back into the boat, the wind stopped. Then the disciples worshiped him. “You really are the Son of God!” they exclaimed.  Matthew 14/22-33 N.L.T

During this period of enforced isolation, if ever there was a time to draw close to the Lord, it is now.  Why not grasp the opportunity that we have to spend some time each day getting to know the Lord Jesus Christ better?

1. I have enjoyed spending a day with the Lord, finding a quiet place, away from distractions, opening my Bible at say Isaiah 55 and prayerfully reading and thinking about each word and verse, asking myself what I can learn about God and what He wants me to understand and apply to my life.

Jesus boiled everything down to His two great commandments, which are restorative not punitive - it is more blessed to give than receive:

King David tells us in Psalm 19 what inspired and encouraged him as he depended on the Lord in difficult times.

Verse  8 - The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;

             The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes;

Verse 10 - More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold;

              Sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb.

Verse 14 - Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy                sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.

2. Another thing we can do is learn some verses of scripture.  I like the book of James, which is very practical and gives us a lot of advice about how we can cope in adversity and how to love our neighbour.  “It is not how many times we have been through the Bible that counts, but how many times the Word of God has been through us.”

Why not set yourself a challenge of learning James chapter 1 verses 2 - 8 or the chapter.

3. You can also listen to the Word of God and enjoy past Sunday Services.  Take your pick from 4 years of Trinity URC Sunday Services abridged to 40 minutes.  How? Well explore our Good News page and pick Podcasts and enjoy the virtual company of others in the seclusion of your own home and enjoy a variety of preachers we have had over the years.

Trinity Response to Government Guidelines on Church Opening after Lockdown.


Dear Friends,

In  response to the recent Government Guidelines, and with the denominational help, regarding the opening of churches for worship the Elders have met (on Zoom) and have agreed the following.

1. We will aim to open Trinity up for Sunday Worship and other weekly activities in early September.

A date for this will be announced by the end of July.

To prepare for this risk assessments will be collated, and preparation of the church building will take place including cleaning, signage and provision of sanitisers.

2. Online worship will continue until we meet for worship at Trinity

Until we meet again worship will be on YouTube with links from this website and Trinity’s Facebook page.

When we are worshipping safely we will film the services and distribute them online.

Permission will be asked of those participating in worship to allow us to film them.

3.  Garden Worship will be offered for families in the church grounds on the last Sundays of July and August at 4pm

Activities and Worship will be spread around the church grounds for a short time with no access to the building.

4. The Elder’s and pastoral visitors will continue to phone their groups weekly.  Please contact us if you need help, can help or simply need a chat.

5. We ask that you continue to hold the congregation and all those who are part of the community in your prayers.

Chris


Please Note:  Message from our insurance company - no-one is to enter the church building until further notice.
