Connecting with Others
There are various ways in which people are connecting with others at Trinity during this season. Below are some things taking place:
Small Groups - there are a number of Small Groups at Trinity that continue to connect with one another by WhatsApp, Zoom or email. lf you would like to be part of a Small Group at Trinity please contact Bebe Pentland (Pastoral Care Co-ordinator) for more details.
Prayer and Practical Support - if at this time you would appreciate prayer or practical support then please contact Bebe Pentland (Pastoral Care Co-ordinator). We are able to provide meals and shopping for those who are self-isolating.
Guernsey Welfare Service Foodbank - this is based at Trinity and at the current time we are delivering food parcels to 60 households most weeks. The average value of a parcel is about £50 so that is approximately £3250 worth of food that we are giving away and delivering each week.
If you need help then we would encourage you to get in touch with GWS either by facebook or our website or phone 07839 724300. We recognise that there are many people not used to asking for help who may need some extra support at this time. But please be assured that we offer a non-judgmental service and understand that this is a difficult time for many reasons.
And if you are able to offer help to the foodbank there are two key ways in which you can do this. You can donate money on our website using paypal or you can send a cheque to Guernsey Welfare Service care of Trinity Church or you can donate food at most supermarkets on the Island.
We collate a weekly newspaper called ‘The Trinity Times’ which contains the weekly church information, hymns, talk and prayers together with articles to inspire and encourage as well as a quiz. The purpose of this is to ensure that people without access to the internet can still feel part of the community and all that is going on. If you know of someone who would appreciate receiving this resource please contact Helen Sheppard (Trinity Seniors Co-ordinator) by email.
