Newsnotes for Sunday April 1st
Welcome: We are very pleased to welcome our friends from Albert Road, who are worshipping with us while essential repairs are carried out on their building.
Messy Church: Our next Messy Church is on April 21st. We are hoping for donations of cake please to provide desert for our shared meal. We also need empty egg boxes to build the walls of Jericho, and also an unwanted bed sheet which will be cut up. These can be left at Trinity at any time or given to any Messy Church volunteer.
The People’s Passion:A very big THANK YOU to all those who made The People's Passion such a moving and inspiring experience. To those who planned the service, those who took main parts, the members of the congregation who entered into the action with enthusiasm, the sound technician who worked incredibly hard to keep the action running smoothly and provided background music to the scenes, the volunteers who helped serve refreshments after the service and to the augmented choir who sang before the service to set the scene. It was a great success and was well supported by the community. Thank you one and all.
Room Bookings: This notice is Particularly important at the moment, since we are trying to accommodate bookings which would normally go to Albert Road. Bookings for any rooms or the church must be notified to Sarah Westmore by Friday lunchtime of the previous week so that we have a full record of who is on the premises and can ensure that the building is open. Please email email@example.com, telephone 02920213916 or 07543874409, or text to 07543874409.
Easter Offering: Due to the "winter conditions" and Church closure, the Easter Offering envelopes will be in the pews today and next Sunday 8th April. Following discussion with Albert Road, as we are worshipping together at the moment, the decision was made to incorporate the Easter Offering Collections together, and present the total amount from both Churches combined at the Easter Offering Service. This will be held at the Sunday Evening Service on 29th April at Cadoxton Church Barry at 6pm. This will be taken by Rev Catherine Brobbey. All are very welcome
World Women’s Day of Prayer: After some difficulty and delay the WWDP service will take place on Friday 20th April at 1.45pm. I realise Messy Church is the next day but it was impossible to fit it in before Easter and this is the first available date after the children go back to school.
Please can you let as many people know as possible.
Breakfast Club at All Saints: Toast at All Saints Church is a breakfast club which is open to anyone; but is especially for families with children under five years of age. It will not be running on April 7th as advertised, but instead on April 14th. We invariably run on the first Saturday in the month, but have changed this for April 2018 as it falls in the middle of the school holiday. From 9am - 10am families can enjoy a relaxed and tasty breakfast, whilst plenty of play activities occupy the children when they have finished eating. We gear the play activities for under 5s, but all are welcome.
Trinity Singers: The TRINITY SINGERS take a well-deserved rest after their Easter contributions. They meet again on MONDAY 16th APRIL at 7.30.
Food Bank: Sincere and grateful thanks to all who generously donated extra food during the severe weather, enabling the distribution of much needed provisions. Thank you also for the "Easter Treats" which again were so generously given.
As you may appreciate stocks are quite depleted, so any donations are very much appreciated. At the moment we are very short of Cereals and tins of meat and fish.
Offerings: Your offerings for Sunday March 25th (including direct payments through the Bank) were £….. Proceeds from the Women’s Fellowship Fashion Show were £240.00. May we thank those of you who contribute to the church for your generous and regular payments into our bank account. If you wish to amend your payments please contact the Treasurer Richard Clifford on 2140 5209. This is greatly appreciated and your contributions are very much in mind when we bless the collection each Sunday. Thank you for your generous continued giving to the work of the Lord!
In Need of Prayer: If you are aware of anyone within our fellowship who is in need of prayer and would like to be included either in our Newsnotes Prayer List or in our Morning Worship Intercessions, please enter their names in the Intercessions book which is kept in the Woodland Place entrance. Alternatively you can give any names to Dorothy Gardiner (20701497) – likewise please let her know if someone no longer needs prayer.
