As part of Trinity’s support for Faith in Action, we aim to provide a Christmas gift for each person at their Christmas dinner.  The numbers increase each year and around 90 people are expected, comprised of 80 men and 10 women.  Popular gifts include gloves, socks, hats, aftershave, shower gel, chocolates and nice biscuits.  Gifts should be clearly labelled for male or female.

If you would like to donate a gift but were unable to bring it on 8 December, please do not leave it in the church but contact Cathy Dundee via the church office (office@trinitywimbledon.org) so we can arrange to store it safely to be added to the other gifts.

Thank you for your continuing support.  Each gift may be the only one that a homeless person receives this year and they are very appreciative for everything that they receive.

Why not join us for a few minutes each Wednesday, between noon and 2pm, to pray with the Trinity community?

The URC’s Prayer Handbook for 2020 is now available, a collection of authentic prayers from around the URC.

“In offering this collection of prayers, we hope we have captured their raw authenticity; prayers that are beautifully written and deeply thoughtful, but not overly clever.
“We have included pieces which came to us rough-hewn, unpolished or quirky, but all of which echoed the heartbeat of God’s people crying out to our gracious God.
“In using this collection, we hope that you will catch an echo of your own thankfulness and desires for our beautiful, but often broken, world.”
