It has been a long and strange 13 months or so, during which time we have had to readjust to not
always being able to meet together, or to having our services on line, or now with a few of us gathered again in the church building. But the “church” has never been about the building we worship in or the number of people attending. The Christian life is 24/7, not just conveniently fitted into a short slot on a Sunday morning. We are called to be Christ like in our thoughts and actions all the time, and to evidence our faith by carrying out good deeds. We are not Christian by the deeds alone, but if we have our faith, we cannot but want to think of others and reach out to help anytime we can. This ethos was demonstrated over Easter when as a congregation we wanted to still be able to reach out to our families and our friends and neighbours, so two age appropriate deliveries were organised.
For our younger members, our youth leaders put together packs of Easter related crafts and games, along with the necessary Easter eggs!
Our senior members got a lovely food parcel along with Easter literature and a copy of our Connections Newsletter to keep them in touch with all that has been going on. (if you haven’t seen a copy of this yet, check it out on the Resource page of our website www.trinityboardmills.org/resources/)
All these packs were very well received, and an effective witness for Trinity in the local community. Thanks go to all those who helped supply the goodies, and to the folk who did the socially distanced deliveries!
