In the Community
Between us at Trinity we have loads of links into the local community.
The Vision exercise in 2010 will clarify where we feel God wants us to focus. In addition to the links with the residential care homes, we’ve had links in the recent past with Just Around the Corner (JAC) which does detached youth work with teenagers.
If we decide to develop our youth work exploring fresh links with JAC could be really exciting.
We also have volunteers who help at the local Contact Centre for broken families. We could possibly invest more in this.
With the agreement of the Crescent Centre our Pastoral Development Worker, Ann Baker, has been providing something like an informal chaplaincy role and has spent time getting alongside a number of folk who’ve sought a listening ear from her.
Our vision work needs to spend time exploring where the entry points into the local community might be for us.
