Our Harvest Thanksgiving and Creationtide service will take place on Sunday 26 September.  It will be led by members of our Outreach & Witness Team.

Again this year, the congregation is asked to bring items to be taken to the Wimbledon Foodbank which continues to experience a high level of demand.

The needs of the Foodbank vary from week to week, but the following items would be welcomed:

Each year we conduct a ballot for Gift Day nominations, and we now need to decide which charities will benefit in 2021.

The 10 charities selected will comprise 4 local, 3 national and 3 international organisations.  There is further information at the bottom of the attached voting form.

Complete this Voting Form and return it to Robin Ingram (‘For Others’ secretary) at robin.h.ingram@gmail.com or put a printed copy in the ballot box in the vestibule at Trinity on Sundays, or post it to Robin at the Trinity office by 11 October.

Do contact either Robin Ingram or Robin Goodchild if you need any further information.

When the Gift Day appeal is launched later in October the charities receiving most support in the ballot will be highlighted.

Please take the time to vote in this important fundraising event in the Trinity calendar.

Please join us for a few minutes each Wednesday, between noon and 2pm, to pray with the Trinity community.

At last Sunday’s Church Meeting we presented the work that has been going on to write our new Pastorate Profile.  First we reminded the meeting of the process that we need to follow to find a new minister for Trinity.  We then presented the main themes of the Pastorate Profile – a long and detailed document which has to be submitted to the Southern Synod before the vacancy can be declared.

This document is now complete and you can see the PowerPoint presentation here.  It will now be sent to the South London Synod Area Pastoral Committee as the next step.

Thanks to all those members who attended the important meeting and contributed to the process.
