Welcome to Trinity Free Church

October

Harvest Havoc!

You may or may not be aware that the harvest was difficult this year.  With the extreme sunshine and dry weather, the crops struggled to grow and then when they were ready it was necessary to act quick and harvest ended up being shorter than usual.  Short stalks and a short sharp harvest!  Harvest Havoc!

In truth most of us are disconnected from the harvest these days we don’t know where our food comes from and the fluctuations in price.  Did you know that straw and hay reached rare high prices this summer?  Some of us do know that we can buy local and reduce food miles or organic and reduce chemical input but there is more to think about.  Do we remember that unless there is rain and sunshine in sufficient measure then nothing grows?  These things, indeed all things, are in God’s hands and it is good to thank Him for them. 

At 5pm October the 7th you are invited to join the church family at Trinity to celebrate another harvest safely gathered in.  Our usual worship band will lead some lively corporate singing and hopefully we will have some special music too.  There will be a chance to consider the Bible’s view of ‘all the good gifts around us’ and perhaps to create a picture of our own.  All to be followed by a Harvest Tea and time to chat and enjoy the evening.

Each Sunday evening at 5pm there is another chance to hear what St. Matthew thinks about the Lord Jesus as we study his gospel together, you will be most welcome to come to these services too.

The Church family meet regularly on Sundays at 10:00a.m. to pray, followed by our worship and relevant Bible Teaching at 10:30a.m.  There’s always a warm welcome, an all-age programme and refreshments follow.

If you would like us to pray for you then please call us and leave a message on the answerphone.  Many events continue their programmes although the Youth Work will break for Half Term:
Meeting Place (Tuesday 2nd), Youth Work (Mondays 1st, 8th, 15th, 29th all School Years catered for),  Home Groups (week beginning Sunday 7th & 28th)
