EASTER GREETING:  Alleluia. Christ is risen. All: He is risen indeed. Alleluia! Alleluia. Christ is risen. All: He is risen indeed. Alleluia! Alleluia. Christ is risen. All: He is risen indeed. Alleluia!
FAMILY COMMUNION – We’ll be trialling a new service on Sunday 7 May.  This will be a service for the church family called ‘Family Communion’, using new Communion liturgy especially designed for the occasion.  There will be NO BAPTISMS at this service.  Please do come along to try it out.
BAPTISM EVENING – The next Baptism Evening will take place on Thursday 20 April at 8pm at the Vicarage.  If you are interested in getting your child baptised, please come along on the night.  We do ask both parents to attend if possible and it is not appropriate to bring children to the meeting.
ANNUAL VISION MEETING – Our Annual Parochial Church Meeting will take place on Sunday 30 April at 10:30am.  As we continue to action “Our New Vision” for Holy Trinity for the next 5-10 years, we would really value and love input from everybody in the church family.
COFFEE TEAM VOLUNTEERS – We are looking for extra volunteers to join the coffee team rota.  If you can help out on one Sunday a month please email
THE CHARITABLE GIVING GROUP – We are looking for new members and new ideas.   We would be delighted therefore if you could join Fleur, Katy P. and me (Nicole Piché) for a brainstorming meeting at my place, 12 Pope’s Grove, Thursday 4 May at 8 pm (wine and nibbles provided to foster creativity!).  Please let me know if you can join us by emailing me at
SAVE THE DATE –Everyone is invited to attend the Deanery wide Ascension Day Service on the evening of Thursday 25 May at St Philip & St James Church, Whitton.  This begins a period of prayer called by the Archbishop of Canterbury known as ‘Thy Kingdom Come’.
COLLECT FOR EASTER DAY –  Lord of all life and power, who through the mighty resurrection of your Son overcame the old order of sin and death to make all things new in him: grant that we, being dead to sin and alive to you in Jesus Christ, may reign with him in glory; to whom with you and the Holy Spirit be praise and honour, glory and might, now and in all eternity. AMEN.
