This Sunday’s worship will be a live ‘Worship From Home’ service held on Zoom, which you can join from wherever you are, online or by telephone.

The service for Transfiguration Sunday will be led by four members of our Elders’ Council.

The Bible readings will be 2 Kings 2: 1-12 and Mark 9: 2-9.

Joining instructions will be sent out to Trinity members who have subscribed to our mailing list.  If you do not receive the details please email churchsecretaries@trinitywimbledon.org for instructions.

Please join the Zoom call between 10.45am and 10.55am ready for an 11.00am start.

A very happy New Year to all our Chinese-speaking members and friends.

Thank you so much for your generous support for Crisis this Christmas.  Donations at our Christmas services amounted to £1,000 (including Gift Aid).

Your donation will help fund and support the year-round work of Crisis with homeless people.

  • Wednesday, 24 February, from 6 pm to 7:30 pm – online Delegates Assembly to make final decisions about Citizens’ priorities for the Mayor of London (by Zoom);
  • Wednesday, 28 April, from 6 pm to 7:30 pm – Mayoral Assembly to challenge the Mayoral candidates for London with Citizens’ priorities (by Zoom).

Turnout (i.e., numbers of people present) is essential to show the power and commitment of Citizens’ membership and maximise Citizens’ ability to engage with those holding positions of power and responsibility.

It would be good to have lots of people from Trinity at both the Delegates Assembly and the Mayoral Assembly. Please put the dates in your diary, and let either Mike Tulloch or Robin Goodchild know if you are able to attend (their contact details are in the latest Church Directory recently distributed).

Just as a reminder, Trinity is a member of Merton Citizens (MCs). MCs is part of London Citizens, which in turn is part of Citizens UK. Citizens UK, to quote its website,

“…organises communities to act together for power, social justice and the common good. We are the home of community organising in the UK. Our diverse member organisations include schools, churches, mosques, synagogues, parents’ groups, health practice, charities and trade unions. We help these members to develop leaders, so they can participate in public life and hold politicians and other decision-makers to account on the issues that matter to them.”

MCs currently comprises 19 faith, education and community institutions across the borough including some churches that we know through our joint involvement in the Merton Winter Night Shelter; the Raynes Park Community Church, who we know well, is a particularly active member.

This Sunday’s worship was a live ‘Worship From Home’ service held on Zoom.

The service was led by the Revd Alistair Cumming (Church of Scotland minister, Clerk of the Presbytery of England) and included the celebration of Holy Communion.

The Bible readings were Isaiah 40:21-31 and Mark 1: 29-39.  The Order of Service can be read/downloaded here

Lent is always a time like no other in the Christian calendar, a chance for us to walk the way of Jesus and spend time apart from the world and alone with his Father God.

We enter this Lent in lockdown and in apprehension of what the rest of the year will hold. Perhaps it has never been more important for us to use this season to reflect on and explore our relationship with God.

We want to encourage everyone at Trinity to find a way to take time away from the world and focus on Jesus and his purpose in our own lives during Lent. We won’t be holding a single Lent course as we have done in previous years, but we want to suggest some resources and materials you might like to use, and give you the opportunity to share your thoughts and experiences with Trinity folk.

You might want to follow a course individually, speak regularly with a friend about what you are doing, or get together with a group to meet up online. Whatever you do – let us know!  We’ll be taking time after every Zoom Sunday service to hear what folk are up to, emailing round updates throughout Lent, and then just before Holy Week we will spend time at our online Church Meeting sharing what we have learned and discovered.

We will be showing a variety of resources here over the next few days, so keep watching.

With all best wishes

Joint Church Secretaries
