Lent done a bit differently

Lent and the film ‘The Greatest Showman’ aren’t necessarily two phrases that you’d think go together!! But over the last few weeks almost fifty people have been meeting weekly on Wednesday evenings looking at themes drawn from the popular film using a book by Rachel Mann. PT Barnum played by Hugh Jackman and one of the main characters champions the outcasts of society inviting them to live their lives fully and to take pride in their identity regardless of how the culture around them reacts. There has been lots......

Follow-up from recent Glebe meetings

Thank you so much to everyone who came to both of our Glebe consultations this last fortnight. There were just under fifty people at the back of church for the first meeting, and over hot drinks and cake we were able to listen to each other and talk about how best to use the Glebe Field. A smaller group of about fifteen met for the second consultation a week later, building on some of the ideas already presented as well as adding a few more to the mix. We......

Say One For Me

Say One For Me is a regular church activity. A few people make door to door calls around the parish to invite householders to submit prayer needs on a specially printed card. Most people are very responsive and there is some friendly banter. Sometimes cards are dropped back at designated points and the prayer team at Cafe Connect as well as those who regularly attend parish prayers pray. It is a great way of showing that the church family of Trinity Churches cares about everyone who live in the......

The Glebe Field next door to church

We are pleased to say that as of a few days ago the PCC of Holy Trinity Meole Brace took full ownership of what is known as the “Glebe Field” next to the church. 2019 marks one hundred and fifty years since our current church building opened, and so this newly-acquired ownership comes at a time when we celebrate our ongoing life for over one thousand years at the heart of Meole Brace. As we hope both the church and Trinity Centre are a gift to many near and......

Exciting opportunity to get involved!

This year Steve Jones and a few others are planning a dramatised Passion Play on the morning of Good Friday Friday 19th April 2019 as part of the established ‘Walk of Witness’ that annually takes place up Pride Hill, Shrewsbury. It will start in the Quarry with Christ’s betrayal and move to Mardol Head with Peter’s betrayal and then into The Square with Pilate’s washing of hands and then the Presentation of the Last Supper. We have also discovered links to the 16th and 17th century ‘passion plays’ that......

Pray as you go

Prayer can be like exercise – it takes effort and motivation to get going and to warm up your muscles but then you feel the benefits. If you’re finding it difficult building time with God into your daily routine why not try the free Pray as you go app? Each week day, and one for the weekend, you get a combination of music, scripture and questions for reflection lasting about 10 minutes – no day is the same! Busyness, apathy, boredom, difficult seasons or our feelings can so easily......
