Cafe Connecting.... with South-East Asia!

Cafe Connect played host to a distinguished group from the Province of South East Asia last week. The group, led by Archbishop Bolly Lapok, were in England to mark the closure of two missionary organisations that had proclaimed the gospel in the far East and to renew links with the Diocese, including a whistle-stop tour of a few pioneering church projects as well as a traditional service of Evensong in the cathedral. The Cafe was packed out for an hour in the afternoon by over thirty visitors from churches in South East Asia,......

Being and Belonging at Trinity Church: a survey...

At our recent PCC meeting the question of what it means to be and belong at Trinity Church as a member of a congregation popped up on the agenda. How does our coming together to be church sit alongside all the other things that make up our lives? We have tasked a few keen beans put their heads together on this, and they would really appreciate knowing what you think. They have set up a survey which can be accessed at the link below. It can be completely anonymous,......

Reflection from Kuala Lumpur

Update from the Kennedy family, mission partners with CMS As our time draws to a close here in Malaysia we have been busy packing, making preparations and saying farewell to friends. We have been very blessed by our time here and learned so much in many different ways. In some aspects our experience has not been as we expected. Maybe when you step out in faith the only thing to be expected is it will not be as you expect and through this God is able to refine us......

Frontline Visits

Wanted: People for new frontline visits! At the APCM recently we showed two more great videos of congregation members on their frontlines which have been such an encouragement both to those visited and those visiting. We are really keen to keep visiting people on their frontlines to encourage you, pray with you, and find out how better we can support you in the places God has called you to be. So if you’d like someone to come and visit you (either on your frontline or elsewhere if that is......

Celebrating the Year!

A chance to look back over the past year and look ahead… Sunday 26th April 2015 saw this year’s Annual Parochial Church Meeting, a chance to look back over the past year, to rejoice in what God is doing across the parish, and to look ahead at some of the opportunities and challenges over the next months and years. Going fishing? We began the evening in Church, as Dave Bruce spoke on John 21. “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some......

“Church Actually” May Preaching Series.

The sermon series in the mornings are on “Church Actually”. One writer described church recently as “God’s brilliant idea.” Beautiful. Inspiring. Life-changing. Nation-shaping. And yet – if we’re honest – that isn’t always how people describe church. I’m reminded of the speaker who was asked “What’s the best thing about the church” and he said “the people.” “And the worst thing?” “The people…” During our May morning services we’re going to have four weeks called “Church Actually”. Using some material from Spring Harvest, we’ll be glimpsing two vital questions for......

Evening Service Sermons - The Life of Moses

The sermon series in the evenings is on the life of Moses. ‘Please send someone else!’ That was Moses’ response to God when he called him at the burning bush. He’d already dodged death at birth when he had been hidden in the bulrushes only to land in the arms of Pharaoh’s daughter and be brought up in Pharaoh’s’ palace. And then, after murdering an Egyptian, he’d fled into the desert. It was there in the wilderness, standing on holy ground, he heard God’s call to be the one......

What would Steven Fry say to God... and vice versa?

I reckon I upset a few people last night in the evening service. As part of our series on “Looking Through the Cross”, we had come to the week on “The Cross and Suffering.” I began with Steven Fry’s recent outburst on what he would say to God, and particularly on what he would say to God in the light of suffering in the world around. Provocative? Emotive? Biased? Inconclusive? Have a look for yourself? Whilst it wasn’t really the time to be providing a full response to Steven......

Reading and Wrestling with the Bible

We had a good start to a conversation a few days ago at Upside Down Church on how to read the Bible. And since then the conversation has continued, both over coffee on Sunday mornings as well as one-to-one. For those who were at the session – as well for those who weren’t able to attend – we’ve posted up various resources and further thinking on the website. Click here or go to www.trinitychurches.org/bible for more details, as well as where this ongoing conversation will take us next. We’re......
