Join us at 11:00am for Worship at Home, an online service led by Pam Rostron, one of Trinity’s elders, made up of our own recordings and others in a Youtube playlist.

The Bible readings are Psalm 1 and Matthew 22: 34-46.  If you would like to follow the text of the service, you can read/download it by clicking here.

With thanks to Pam, and to Cathy, Mike and Robin for Bible readings, prayers of concern, and offertory prayer respectively, and to the Youtube community for our hymns.

Please aim, if possible, to start watching the video at 11am on Sunday 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 videos at whatever time suits!

If the embedded video above is not working correctly, you can also view the playlist by clicking here. Videos should play automatically one after the other, but if you get out of sync you can find the links in the transcript linked above and on our YouTube channel.

On Saturday night…….

This year our annual Gift Day ‘For Others’ will fall on Sunday 1 November
Trinity appeals to you to support Gift Day as generously as you are able

We are hoping to raise at least £10,000 this year which, with the benefit of Gift Aid, will increase the total figure to over £12,000.

The funds raised this year will again be allocated in accordance with the vote taken recently by Trinity members and friends from a list of charities.  The following charities have been chosen and will receive £500 each:-

Local Charities
Merton Winter Night Shelter                        South London Refugee Association
South West London Samaritans                 Wimbledon Foodbank

National Charities
Alzheimer’s Research                                   Cancer Research UK
Mind

International Charities
Médecins sans Frontières                            British Red Cross
Barnabas Fund

Following provision of £2,000 for Disaster Relief, the remaining funds will be split 2/3rds to Faith-In-Action and 1/3rd to Water Aid.

You may wish to donate in one of three ways:

  • by debit/credit card using the Virgin Money Giving button here;
  • by using a Gift Day donation envelope at the church service on 1 November or any service during November;
  • by posting your cheque (payable to Trinity URC) to our ‘For Others’ Secretary, Robin Ingram c/o Trinity Church.

So, will you please help us raise sufficient money in order that we may meet the challenge of our mission to serve our local community and the needs of the wider world?

Trinity thanks you in advance for your support.

 


Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.  
Over 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks in The Trussell Trust network is donated by the public – that’s why your food donations are absolutely vital to our ability to give everyone referred to us a balanced and nutritious three day supply of food

We’ve got plenty of pasta!

Edited by Karen Campbell and the Revd Ian Fosten, the 2021 URC Prayer Handbook is titled Conversations, and comes in two sections. The first follows the pattern of linking a prayer to one or more of the set lectionary readings for particular days throughout the year. The second section invites contributions which arose out of the writers’ personal experiences of conversing with God – the everyday and extraordinary situations in which we are moved to say “Sorry!”, “Help!” or “Thank You!”, along with the issues which give rise to deep reflection, or to respond to God’s voice as heard through the scriptures and the world.

The Handbook includes two prayers by Katrina Clifford, an elder at Trinity.

Available to buy from £4.99 +p+p from URC online store.  Also available in large print edition £9.99.

Our worship in church on Sunday 25 October at 11:00 will be led by one of our elders, Pam Rostron.

The Bible readings will be Psalm 1 and Matthew 22: 34-46.

We look forward to seeing you if you have already registered to attend, but it’s not too late to register – we still have room for you, so please email churchsecretaries@trinitywimbledon.org as soon as possible to secure a place.

An on-line service will be available on Sunday for those unable to get to church. Details will be posted here and sent out by email as previously.

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

Local:
Pray for all those working to enable Trinity’s church building and the MRC to be safely used at this time and for all those involved in the delayed building works.

At a time when many are fearful for their financial future, pray for those who are forced into debt. Pray for the Reset The Debt campaign, supported by the URC, to encourage Government support through a Jubilee Fund.
