Our service was led on Zoom by Revd Dr Kevin Snyman, the URC’s Programme Officer for Commitment for Life.

The Bible reading was Mark 8: 31-38. 

As in previous years, during Lent Trinity is asking for donations to support the work of the Commitment for Life programme.

You can give online by using the VirginMoneyGiving link here; if you use that, please identify your gift by putting ‘Commitment for Life’ in the message box on the Donate page.

Alternatively, you can send a cheque to the church, c/o the Church Office, Trinity URC, Mansel Rd, SW19 4AA, made payable to ‘Trinity URC Wimbledon’, and marked ‘Commitment for Life’ on the back.  Thank you.

Here are this week’s materials from Sarah Elliot for Junior Church – the theme is discipleship.
The heart template works as follows: ask your child to write an open-hearted message to a family member/friend e.g. ‘Thank you that I can tell you anything’. They then cut out the heart and fold along the dotted lines to turn the heart into an envelope. They can then seal it with a sticker and give it to a friend/family member.

I hope they enjoy making them – do send me pictures if they do them.

For two weeks each year at the end of February and start of March, thousands of individuals, companies and groups across the UK come together to share the stories of the people who grow our food and drinks, mine our gold, and who grow the cotton in our clothes – people who are often exploited and underpaid.

In 2021, Fairtrade Fortnight will feel very different. 2020 has been a hard year for everyone and we know that physically campaigning and meeting people will continue to be challenging in 2021 but we have also heard from so many of you that you want to continue to support Fairtrade through this time.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us more than ever how interconnected we are globally. This interconnection is at the very heart of the Fairtrade message and is where your role begins. You are part of the Fairtrade movement and you have the power to drive long-term change, not only with your shopping choices but with your support in spreading the message. We just have to do this a little differently in 2021!

You can read more about Fairtrade Fortnight here.
