Trinity’s minister, Revd Dominic Grant, writes:

We at Trinity join with churches, faith groups, and community organisations across our Borough and throughout our nation in condemning Monday’s bomb attack. To the bereaved and injured, and to all who call Manchester their home, we offer our condolences and affirm our solidarity.

Together with all people of goodwill, our diverse faith traditions hold in common a commitment to pursue peace with justice, and to build healthy communities shaped by generosity and mutual respect. These are values which those responsible for Monday’s atrocity sought to attack and undermine. But the response of Manchester’s citizens – seen in countless acts of selfless compassion and in dignified demonstrations of unity – stands as a powerful testimony: such attacks will not succeed.

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement, which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost.
What started out as an invitation from the Archbishops’ of Canterbury and York in 2016 to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.

We have decided to hold a 24-hour prayer event at Trinity (in the Mansel Road Centre) from 11am on Saturday 27 May to 11am on Sunday 28 May (to lead into our regular morning worship at 11am).

So, how can you help?
1) Could you ‘lead’ one of the hours on a particular theme?
2) Could you provide resources for imaginative and different ways to pray?
3) Would you be willing to commit to being there to pray at some point over the 24 hours?

If you’re interested in helping in any way or have any ideas then please get in touch with Katrina Clifford as soon as possible.  Katrina would be very keen to hear from those willing to volunteer for overnight (any part of 10pm to 11am is possible); we would like there to be two people at all times, especially for the night shifts.
