News roundup - w/b 7th September 2020

We are excited to have the opportunity to offer more ‘in person’ services at Trinity Churches, the very fact that we have to call them ‘in person’ services demonstrates just how much change we have seen in 2020. This Sunday we will be celebrating Easter likes it’s zero AD! As we take this whirlwind trip of what you might have missed out on these last months – the story of Good Friday through to Pentecost – we stop off at Easter Day and one of the most breath-taking moments in history. The resurrection of Jesus has been bringing dead things to life since the first century. Young people and children are welcome to come and join us in person and sit with existing bubbles or to tune in at home.......

Fi Iddon's Licensing as Associate Vicar

Final plans are being put in place for Fi Iddon’s Licensing as Associate Vicar. It will take place on Thursday 16th July, at 7pm. Sadly we won’t be able to meet as part of a large gathering in church, but you are all very welcome to join in via the joys of ZOOM. We’d love you to join us. The service will be hosted by Rt Revd Sarah Bullock, the Bishop of Shrewsbury. We’ll be reflecting both of Fi’s new roles, firstly as Associate Vicar in the parish here, secondly as Chaplain to University Centre Shrewsbury. (UCS). The service, lasting about 45 minutes (?!) will include opportunities to pray for Fi, to hear Bishop Sarah speak, and to fulfill some of the legal necessities of these sorts of occasions.......

Supporting local churches

We’ve often used the phrase “Blessed to be a blessing”, and that sense of us wanting to share and support others with the abundance of what God has given to us. One of the ways in which we’re going to be doing that is to be giving particular support to our neighbouring parish of Holy Trinity Church in Belle Vue.  Todd Cotaldo, the lay minister there, is departing his role on 30th June, and during the vacancy period Bishop Sarah has asked us that ministry support will come from Meole Brace parish here. This is to allow some space to discern what God is saying for the future of Holy Trinity Belle Vue. So do please be praying for all our friends in our next door parish, and for......

Fi Iddon - our new Associate Vicar

We are thrilled to announce today that Revd Fi Iddon is going to be our new Associate Vicar. She’ll be working with us as a team across the parish, and will bring a wealth of experience of ministry and mission to our shared life at Trinity Churches. Many of you will know Fi, who along with Simon, Bekah and Josiah have been part of Shrewsbury church life for many years. Since 2017 she has been serving her curacy at St George’s Frankwell, as well as a role as chaplain at University Centre Shrewsbury (UCS). She will continue in that position at UCS for a day a week, alongside the new half-time role of Associate Vicar here in the parish. Fi writes “I’m very much looking forward to taking up......

Ascension Day - Trinity News

I wonder how you are with church celebrations?  We know how to celebrate Christmas, even if we bury it under a thousand distractions. We know how to celebrate Easter, although it is often accompanied by more chocolate and chicks than Christ. But we don’t really know how to celebrate Ascension. It’s buried in a midweek service, and doesnt get anything like the attention of other high days and holidays.   And yet – in these hugely troubled times – let me suggest we need this festival more than ever. John Pritchard writes in his book “Five events that made Christianity” three reasons: we have a friend in high places. Who understands. And who is in a position to do something about it. He knows. He’s been there. He’s been......

John Crum's funeral

You’ll have heard that John Crum died a couple of weeks ago. John has been an amazing member of our church family, bringing gifts and love in so many different ways to the life of the Church. He died in Maesbrook Care Home, where he had been for a few weeks, and I’m so pleased to have had the opportunity to pray with him the morning he died. John’s funeral will be taking place on Tuesday 19th May at 3.30pm. Obviously it will be limited to ten people being present at the Crematorium. But we would very much like John’s church family to be present, and to honour his life. You’ll find below details of how to join in online. Please do join us, be praying for John’s family,......
