Mission: Possible with the Fletchers

We had the Fletcher family with us at Holy Trinity last Sunday. Elise is the daughter of the previous vicar Kevin Roberts as Trinity Churches.

This last month has seen me take four weeks of “study leave”, with the usual opportunities for refreshment, development and leadership learning. Thank you so much to colleagues – and to the church as a whole – for the blessing that this has been. I’ve been able to spend time on retreat, on a “conflict management” course, work shadowing the Dean of Wells Cathedral, and doing a bit of reading on church planting.

As a church we communicate different things and in different ways. Trinity Churches last conducted a Communication Survey in 2010 so we thought it was time for another one! We would love for you to help us by filling this survey out as honestly as you can. All the answers will be anonymous. There......
