Attachments – (2) Holiday Club poster, Easter experience

Good afternoon everyone,

The next three weekends are pretty full on with birthday, Easter and Annual meeting. To make some space in the midst of this Michelle has put together an imaginative ‘Easter experience’ booklet. Those who can’t follow the communal daily prayer pattern can join in at home or whilst travelling.

The booklets will be available at the party and at Sunday services but a simple e-copy is attached. I commend it.Easter Experience Booklet.docx

It was good to welcome Ed and Ruth back from their trip to West Africa, working with the hospital ship charity ‘Mercy Ships’. Look on <> to find out more. Rather splendid picture of the ship here.image1.jpeg


Michelle and I lead our Palm Sunday all-age service which will feature a crazy procession, thanksgiving for Trendlewood’s 30 years as well as sung worship, prayers and post-party bleariness. Palm crosses will be available.

It’s Andy’s on Sunday so our Backwell friends won’t be with us.

Trendlewood’s 30th Birthday Celebrations Saturday 13th April

We’re all excited (and if not, why not?) about our birthday party on Saturday night. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone looking smart. There will probably be jobs for those who turn up to help during the day but best to contact Sarah B by email/mobile if you are able to help and haven’t already been allocated a job.

Film Evening

The next film evening is coming up very soon on Friday, 26th April 2019 at 7.30pm at Nailsea Methodist Church when they will be showing ‘The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Society’.

Annual Church Meeting 28/4

We will have two vacancies for Church Council. Please prayerfully consider if you would be willing to stand for election and, if so, fill out one of the nomination forms available in church. Our two Church Wardens Simon and Trevor are both happy to stand again but we need to consider our plans for their succession. To this end we intend to create a post of deputy warden to shadow them for a year, learn the job and take occasional responsibility, with a view to taking over the role. Of course, we would be delighted if others wanted to stand and have the matter put to a vote.

Our meeting will take place after a shorter-than-usual Morning Service.
