Weekly Email w/b 31st May 2021
We’ll keep this a briefer email than most weeks – think of it like a bank holiday week edition. So alongside the main reminder that we’d love to welcome you – in person or online – at one of our gatherings this weekend, we’re adding a catch-up feature on the book of Philippians, a reminder about Cafe Connect, and our usual offer to pray with you and for you.
This last item really isn’t an afterthought, but is very much central to who we are and what we do. Our thanks to the team in particular who pray across Trinity, and those many others who show love and support both practically and prayerfully.
This comes – as always – with our gratitude and our prayers as together we are “growing faith, proclaiming hope and living the love of Jesus.”
Vicar of Trinity Churches and Area Dean of Shrewsbury
This Sunday – 6th June – we continue to meet at 9am and 11am for our Sunday celebrations. We know it’s the end of half term, but are equally pleased that there will be youth and childrens work taking place.
Meanwhile there are also two additional outdoor gatherings. At 11am there will be a service outside the Meet Place on the Meole Estate. And at 6.30pm will be our monthly evening celebration in the Trinity Centre courtyard, where we’ll have opportunities to meet together, and in particular to sing in the great outdoors!
In the usual way please could you let us know you’re planning on coming to any of these gatherings via our website, or by phoning the Church Office on 01743 362399. Thankyou.
It’s been great to be going through the book of Philippians over the last few weeks. Paul’s letter of joy in the midst of his own prison lockdown seems to strike a chord with much of where we find ourselves as a church at the moment. If you want to find out a bit more about the book then – as always – the amazing team at Bible Project have done a recap of some of the big themes.
Café Connect is now a fortnight into its latest opening in Radbrook Green in the shopping centre there. Dave and the team would love to welcome you and for this to be a safe space to meet up with friends old and new.
Meanwhile discussions continued this week as well about CLOISTERS, and a twice-weekly pop-up Cafe taking place in the Trinity Centre courtyard and the back area of church. If you’ve got particular ideas, or would like to be part of a new initiative, do come and chat to us.
It has been such a privilege to be asked to be praying for a number of different people these last few months. Thank you particularly to the ‘prayer chain’ who have been such an important part of that. We want to continue to make the offer of praying for people across these local communities we serve, and we would love to pray for you, your family or friends.
