Growth Groups

Growth Groups

What are they for?

The vision for All Saints Trull is ‘becoming and making mature disciples of Jesus in Trull and beyond’.  Joining and participating in a Growth Group is one way that we can help ourselves to mature.  The groups are valued by their members and can become like close family.

 

Who are they for?

They are for anyone, old or young, who wants to grow closer to God.  We try to cater for the needs of everyone.

What do they do?

They meet to share what it is to be a Christian.  This involves reading the Bible, discussing what it means and how we should apply it to our lives, praying for each other and the concerns of the church and the wider world, supporting and encouraging each other.  Many groups also have occasional social gatherings.

When and where do they meet?

There are currently groups that meet on all days of the week.  Some meet during the day, others in evenings.  Some only meet in school term-time, others all year round.  Many meet weekly, but others meet less often.  They meet in homes in and around Trull. Continue Reading →

Church Weekend Away

Our next Church Weekend Away at Brunel Manor has been booked for 12th – 13th May 2018.  Please put this date in your diary.  At the moment we only have a small team of people interested in organising the weekend and would be grateful for more volunteers.  If anyone would like to join the planning team (led by Fran Youings) please contact Julie in the church office. Booking forms will be sent out by mid November.

Christmas …

Once again we are hoping to pull a team of volunteers together to help organise the Christmas Day Lunch in the TCCC this year.

“Providing a meal for people who may otherwise spend Christmas Day on their own has proved to be a most worthwhile and enjoyable experience – last year we provided meals for over 43 people some of whom have already contacted me asking if they can come this year. I have thoroughly enjoyed this social event, but it does take a lot of planning.  I am happy to organise it but I will need a band of volunteers to help me pull everything together at this busy time of year.  Whether it is shopping for groceries, setting up the room, laying tables, spending an hour preparing stuffing or vegetables on the morning of Christmas Eve, cooking, welcoming people on Christmas Day or simply loading the dishwasher after the meal, every offer of help will be gratefully received.

This year we will need to charge a nominal fee of £5 to go towards the cost of the food but if anyone feels able to assist with a small financial donation we will be able to continue providing all the trimmings that help make it such a festive event.  Please contact me in the church  office if you are willing to help in anyway 01823 330812 Ext 1 or churchoffice@trullchurch.co.uk.  Thank you.”

Thank You from the Youings

Adrian, Fran, Tom and Becca want to say “a very big thank you for the amazingly generous gift you gave us and even more for a truly memorable send off on 15th October. We loved every minute of it and it was a great way to say goodbye. You have been the most wonderful churches to work with and we will miss you so much. Julie has our new contact details. You’d be welcome to pop in when you are passing through the Bath area.”

Thank You for Adrian’s Last Day

Thank You! to everyone involved in making Adrian’s last day with us as Rector of All Saints, Trull and St Michael and All Angels,  Angersleigh churches and villages such a happy and  entertaining time. Because of the generous donations of food, time and love we were able to show Adrian just how much he was loved and appreciated in our church and village.  A special thank you goes to our musicians and sound team for giving up so much of their time on Saturday and Sunday.

Thank You for Harvest

Sam would also like to say a BIG THANK YOU for all the volunteers involved in the Harvest Experience in church this week and for those who contributed the materials and food which helped make such an outstanding visual display of God’s Harvest in church.  Any items not collected by their owners over the weekend will be stored in the church office – Julie would be extremely grateful if these were gone before she comes back on Wednesday.
