All ladies welcome.

ADVENT TOY SERVICE AT TRINITY
Our Advent All Age Family Worship at 10 am on 1 December will also be an opportunity to donate toys to the Salvation Army’s Toy Appeal . They are requesting toys for children of all ages. These should be new & unwrapped. If they could also be in a gift bag that would be lovely.
Please bring them to church on the morning of Sunday 1 December.

OPEN SATURDAY THANK YOU
Thank you to everyone who came along to the November Open Saturday.  An amazing £294.21 was raised for AtALoss.org and Trinity Mission Fund will match this.  Over 30 lunches were served and once again Trinity Church was open and welcoming to our community.  Well done and Thank you.

OPEN SATURDAYS
11am – 2pm
We now have charities in place for future months. Pick up a flyer and put the dates in your diary, invite your friends and sign up to help on the rota.

Many hands make light work, and have great fun in the process, so if you are able to help with setting up/clearing away or hosting the refreshments table we would love you to sign up.
