This week’s contributions to the ‘Trinity Creates’ challenge on the theme of ‘CIRCLES’……

Next week’s theme is LIGHT & SHADE

 

Jesus has ascended to heaven – he is “out of sight”, yet his disciples are given the continuing assurance of God’s power in him and in them. Today, we are his disciples!

Our service is led by Revd Dominic Grant; the Bible readings are Acts 1.6-14 and Ephesians 1.15-23.

Thanks to Sarah for Junior Church materials, Alan for leading the prayers of concern, Sandy for the Bible readings, and Andrew for music (with vocals from Miriam and Dominic).

Please aim, if possible, to start watching the video at 11am so that, even in our separation, we can be sharing together in worship. However if that’s not possible or convenient for you, do make use of the video at whatever time suits! If you would like to follow the text of the service, you can read/download it by clicking here.

This week’s author of the week from Church House Bookshop is C.S. Lewis.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898–1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. Lewis wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year.

Church House Bookshop is offering 10% off handpicked books by and about him – browse the full list here.

This week’s materials for Junior Church from Sarah Elliot are here…..    

You’ll find below links to a Bible story, notes/discussion/songs, activities for the 11+ group, colouring and activity sheets for younger children, and other resources.

We’re looking at Jesus’ ascension and the idea of glorifying him. Bring out all your glitteriest and sparkliest materials!

In the light of the Coronavirus Pandemic, Trinity has sadly had to close both the Church and the Mansel Road Centre. This has inevitably had a seriously adverse impact on our Lettings income. It highlights the even greater importance of Planned Giving to enable Trinity to carry out God’s witness and mission in the world.

Trinity would greatly welcome donations through its Planned Giving scheme.  Follow the link here to the Planned Giving Leaflet.
