Did someone say apple?

Last Saturday we had our Apple Day. We had a great turn out with 350 people from the community who came along! Faces were painted, songs were sung by local choirs, hog roasts were eaten and apple juice made! The Windfall Project, who regularly meet in the Trinity Centre sold some of their pickles and jams made earlier in the week.

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. It was a real joy to see them and hear some of their incredible stories about life in the Klong Toey slum, Thailand working alongside Urban Neighbours of Hope (UNOH). As a church we supported the family as one of the Living Stones projects in 2017 helping them to buy a house in the slum and supporting the wider neighbourhood by developing new walkways.......

Reflections on Study leave - Phil Cansdale

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. Please do read the attached if you’d like to find out a little bit more about......
