‘WELCOMING’ AT HOLY TRINITY
From today onwards, ‘WELCOMING’ will re-appear on the Holy Trinity Roster after a break due to covid lockdowns. Welcoming people as they enter the church on a Sunday morning is a vital part of our church life and community, and for visitors it can make all the difference if they are greeted with warmth and hospitality. Please consider being included in this part of our church ministry and speak to Lorraine regarding dates that suit.

A reminder that the Monday Meditation Group does not meet during school holidays. The group will resume on Monday 2 May at 5.30pm in the church.
