Newsnotes for Sunday June 18th
Trinity Gardens:We are sure that you will have noticed how lovely the church gardens are looking at the moment. This doesn’t happen on its own, and we should be very grateful for all the people who do a variety of jobs to keep things looking beautiful and in working order. Many thanks to all those who volunteer.
MESSY CHURCH: Our next MESSY CHURCH takes place in the upstairs hall on SATURDAY JULY 8th from 3.00 - 5.30 pm. All the activities will be based on the theme ‘FREEDOM' and will include painting, lego, crafts, table games, face painting, a time of celebration and a shared meal in the upstairs hall. As usual we are appealing for offers of help on the day (particularly as some of our regular helpers are unavailable) and donations of cakes for dessert. If you know of anyone who would enjoy Messy Church please encourage them to attend. Everyone is most welcome.
Live at Home Summer Concert:Please join us at our Summer Concert in aid of the Penarth & District Live at Home Scheme which will be held in Trinity Church Penarth on Saturday, 24th June 2017 @ 3pm. The concert will feature the Mid Glamorgan Mixed Choir and the Sully U3A Choir plus contributions from local soloists. Tickets are priced at £5 pp and will include tea/cake during the interval…as an added enticement!!

Women’s Fellowship: On Tuesday 20th fellowship will be going for a walk at Cardiff Bay. Please arrive at Trinity for 6.45 with transport if you have it, we aim to leave at 7pm. Nothing too strenuous!
BIBLE MONTH 2017 - 30 DAYS WITH JAMES!: In June 2017, the Methodist Church of Great Britain is encouraging churches and circuits across the Connexion to run a 'Bible Month', 30 days focused on the letter of James. The Bible Month for The Vale of Glamorgan will involve elements of teaching, sharing and learning, within VOG Circuit Evening Worship, during the 4 Sundays of June. Why focus on James?
The letter of James encourages Christians to live out their faith as well as to confess it. It reminds us that faith without works is dead, and so encourages us to love God and neighbour in deed as well as in word. While future Bible Months will focus on different biblical books, James seems a suitable work to begin with.
Safeguarding Training: The Circuit Superintendants are hoping to offer the overdue Safeguarding Foundation refresher course on Saturday 29th July, and possibly a new
course for those who have only recently taken up roles that need it. Janet and Carole will get in touch nearer the time regarding who exactly needs to do the training but if in doubt please book the date.
Trinity Singers: The TRINITY SINGERS meet tomorrow at 7.30 for their final rehearsal for the Junior Church Anniversary.
Room Bookings: Bookings for any rooms or the church must be notified to David Pedwell 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 02920213916.
