After the success of the Barn Dance we held last year, we are organising another.
We need your help to make sure it is a fantastic evening again. There is something that everyone can do so please don't leave it all for others! Some people have already kindly offered their gifts and talents, which is great, but we still need lots more help e.g. prayers, publicity, selling tickets, making puddings, setting up the room, serving food, clearing up afterwards and many more.
This is an event for everyone, both Trinity's existing congregation and to draw new people into Trinity. So, save the date, tickets will be limited and will be available from the beginning of September (on a first come, first served basis), please don't miss out on a fun-filled evening!
For more information and offers of help please see Pam Medcraft, Vanessa Fairhall or Karen Eccles
