Thank you to everyone who contibuted to a very rewarding and uplifting Holy Week and Easter here at Holy Trinity. We had a very full week, with refletive services as well as the drama of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. Liz in the office did an amazing job co-ordinating the liturgy and the supplies we needed. The flowers were lovely. Holy Satuday was a wonderful day for our church—a fantastic morning of Easter Activities in the morning, and a beautiful uplifting service with a truly great choir in the evening, and the canapes were lovely too! Children and music were also to the fore on Easter Day. Thank you to everyone who participated.

There are no midweek services this week (Monday 22nd to Friday 26th). Toddlers will run on Thursday 25th April though as the local schools go back immediately after Easter this year.

On Sunday 28th April we shall be welcoming Ian Sansbury as our guest preacher at the 9.30am and 11.15am services. Ian is a recently licensed Lay Minister at St Mary’s Wendover and is Chief Executive of The Pace Centre in Stoke Mandeville, a charity that provides support and education for children with cerebral palsy and their families. Ian will be telling us about Pace’s work and will share some perspectives on disability and faith.

Please try and support some of these events happening locally....

As of April 7th we are singing the response in the eucharistic prayer that begins 'Great is the mystery of faith...'. Known as the Memorial Acclamation this response became common in the Eastern liturgies of the eucharist that developed in the early church. It forms part of the eucharistic prayer known by the Greek word Anamnesis. This is the part of the prayer that is about remembering what Jesus did at the Last Supper. For Christians 'remembering' in this way is not just rehearsing or repeating something that happened a long time ago—it is about re-entering and participating in the events recounted. We experience them for ourselves as real ways by which we share in the life of God. We do this in bread and wine, which, remembered, become for us the body and blood of Christ.

The men’s breakfast will meet 8-30am to 10-00am on a Saturday once a month, commencing in May and omitting August. There will be an invited speaker to talk on their specialist subject at each meeting. We will supply the food (full English!) at a price to cover the costs of £5.

The dates for 2019 will be:
11 May 1 June 13 July 7 September 5 October 2 November


All gentlemen welcome!

The church has lots of equipment—for cleaning, cooking and maintenance. Please make sure you know how to use equipment before you do. This may be as simple as familiarising yourself with the instructions, but with dangerous or complex equipment training is required.
