Good Afternoon Everyone,

It was a joy to be back at the school again for worship. Singing ‘Thine be the Glory’ in the open air is a thing many churches seem to have picked up on this this year. Thanks to all who helped set up. Printable Church News for April attached.

Morning Prayer next week at 9.00 a.m. is on Monday and Wednesday. Do email Steve for the Zoom code if you would like to participate. Joining in once will not commit you to any further attendance.


Tonight (7/4)
It is our monthly ‘Going Deeper’ Bible Study tonight and we will look at the last few chapters of Mark again. If you have any questions from our Easter use of Mark do bring them along.

We will be on Zoom from 7.30 p.m. Doors open about 7.25.

Contact us for the link.


Sunday (11/4)
We meet in the school at 10.15 a.m. We will continue our series on Mark’s Gospel, returning to where we were before we studied the Holy week and Easter passages. I will be looking at Mark 5:21-43.

Sarah says:

On Sunday we will be singing a song that is new to Trendlewood. You might like to listen to it before Sunday – Yet not I but through Christ in me.

The service will also be available on Zoom with the option of staying on to chat afterwards.

Zoom doors will open at about 10.05.

Zoom link will be sent out on Saturday morning.

The speaker will be former Holy Trinity Curate Jon Backhouse, speaking on:

‘Stories from the Sea: From Naval Officer to Ship’s Chaplain’

Joining details will be sent out nearer the time.


Members of the church will be sad to hear of the passing of Marcus. He came to nearly every Quiet Day I ran and most Preachers Support Groups. His funeral (by invitation only) is next Tuesday 13th April at 1.30 p.m. at Holy Trinity. Do pray for his wife Sparky, and family.

Nailsea Methodist Church
Kirsty co-,leader of Last Sunday, has been accepted for ordination training in the Methodist Church. A cause for much rejoicing, although we will all miss her presence here.

This creates a vacancy for a families’ worker at Nailsea and Backwell Methodists. The deadline for applications is April 18th. I have details.


Diocesan News
The Bath and Wells weekly email is available on this link, including an Easter message from Bishop Peter.


Thank you Cards
One of our cards was sent to the Woodspring Ramblers, thanking them for all the work they do maintaining local footpaths. They emailed the church to say how touched they were to have their work recognised. If you want to send a Trendlewood thank-you card to a community or individual here do ask me for one. I’ll bring the box to church on Sunday.

Future Ministry
A message from Simon and Lindsay:

‘Last week we had a good introductory meeting via zoom with the Church Wardens from Wraxall and Failand Churches. There was good communication but a few areas we need to work on. We would appreciate your prayers for God’s guidance and wisdom.

‘We would like to thank those who have contributed their thoughts on what qualities they would like to see in our new vicar. We were very impressed with the input Pauline kindly collated and sent to them. This will prove very useful as our Parish Profile continues to take shape.

‘If anyone still wants to contribute any further ideas/thoughts in this connection, please email them to Pauline  who will be happy to pass them on.

‘Many thanks for your help. It is much appreciated.’
