March 2020

February has been a rather stormy month and led us to take the very unusual step of cancelling our Sunday service on the 9th to ensure everyone remained safe. We hope that as we head into March the weather will begin to improve.

Fairtrade Fortnight continues until the 8th March and there is information displayed in the Community Room which tells us a little more about the lives of the cocoa farmers and those helped by Fairtrade. A selection of chocolate is on display to show the variety of Fairtrade chocolate that we can purchase. Why not try some?

Our church lunches begin again on Wednesday the 4th March with a Lent lunch. The proceeds from this lunch will be sent to the United Area Christian Aid appeal as we are almost at our target and meeting this target will mean our donation will be significantly increased by the Government.

The children from Greengate school will again be coming to our ‘Sharing Stories’ afternoons on Thursday 5th and the 19th March. The children enjoy reading to us and we help them to develop their reading skills.

Our Midweek Meeting begins again on the Wednesday 11th March. Please come along and join us at our first meeting of 2020.

Trinity Church Centre are again hosting their annual Bible Stories Exhibition from 16th to 21st March. Local groups and schools creatively display stories from the Bible and it is certainly worth a visit. Refreshments are available.
