“Palms and Passion”

– a service of music and words
Palm Sunday & Holy Week

Sunday 29 March at 11am

As we follow the Gospel narrative from palm-strewn celebration to the desolation of Calvary – the place where Jesus died – Trinity’s choir will be joined by instrumentalists from our own congregation and further afield, for extracts from Steven Schwartz’s Godspell and Bach’s epic B Minor Mass.

std_hymn_sheetThis year it’s planned to produce a new 4th Edition of Trinity Praise, our in-house collection of hymns, songs and canticles for worship.  The current edition dates from 2001, so there’s plenty of scope to refresh the repertoire!  The intention is that it will continue to act as a supplement to Rejoice & Sing, the URC’s denominational hymnbook.

While tastes may differ, everyone who shares in the devotional life of our church has a stake in Trinity Praise, ensuring that it reflects and incorporates the breadth of words and music that help us all to worship.

So….please tell us about hymns or songs which you’d hope to see included (or not included!) in a new edition of Trinity Praise. These might be songs we’ve already sung from time to time with words on the Order of Service, or hymns you’ve heard elsewhere, or indeed material already included in the current edition of Trinity Praise.

Though it’s rarely possible to include every request, all your suggestions will be helpful and will be carefully considered.

As we invite feedback, we’re asking three questions in particular:

1.  Suggestions of hymns/songs for inclusion in Trinity Praise?

2.  Any hymns/songs to be avoided (please tell us briefly why!).

3.  Are there any hymns for which Trinity uses what you consider to be the ‘wrong’ tune?

Please let us have your suggestions by Sunday 26 April by email to trinitypraise@trinitywimbledon.org or use the form available at the church.  Many thanks.

Pilots plaque 2At Synod Together meeting on Saturday 14 March, Dominic was presented with a plaque for our new Pilots Company by Synod Moderator, Revd Nicola Furley-Smith.

L1140057Over fifty gathered in the church on Saturday evening, 14 March, for a wonderfully varied evening of music presented by our Director of Music, Sean Mayes.  There were some organ pieces to enjoy, explanations about the workings of the organ, with opportunities for everyone to delve deep inside it and to have a go at playing it – and we also enjoyed a break during the evening for pizza and socialising.

Our thanks to Sean, Meghan and to all those who helped behind the scenes to arrange “Pedals, Pipes & Pizza” and make it a super evening for all – from tiny children to those in their nineties! Read More
