Vision Sunday

Vision Sunday – 21st January 2018

Usually in mid January we set out the vision for the year and the financial costs we anticipate for that year. We then ask everyone in church to prayerfully consider pledging towards that figure. People then set up direct debits, standing orders or give via an envelope scheme.

If you would like to see a copy of the booklet Giving for the Vision 2018, please follow the link (pdf).

All of our giving is confidential. Only one person in the church knows what each person has pledged., and that is Roger Watkins, our Planned Giving secretary.

Please visit our Giving page for more information or for more details on how to give, contact our church treasurer, David Sharpe – davidsharpe@btinternet.com.

Thank You

The Mission Team would like to thank the Flower Group for their kind donation of £60 towards Open Door.

‘Open Door’ Carol Singing Collecting

Open Door: A big thank you for the continued support received from Trull church and village in providing donations for Open Door. I have just given  notice in my immediate vicinity that a group of us will be carol singing on  Saturday 16th December to collect for Open Door – last year we were given 3 wheelbarrow loads. Should you like to support us you can take any of the following to the TCCC and leave them in the box labelled Open Door: Sleeping bags, gloves, socks, boxer shorts, vegetable oil, sugar, marmite, custard, tomato sauce, brown sauce, gravy granules, cheese and chocolates.  Many thanks for your support.

God with Us –  Your Christmas Journey

December may be a time of year when moments of peace and quiet   reflection are in short supply. God With Us: Your Christmas Journey   is designed to help you make the most of such moments whenever you can.  It offers thirteen short and simple reflections to help you explore the message of so many Christmas readings and carols – that God is with us.  There is one for each day from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Day, as well as one each for the four weeks of Advent.

Each reflection is accompanied by a picture, a challenge and a short Bible reading to help you make connections between the Christmas story and your own life, and take the next step on your journey of faith.

We have 50 of these booklets available on the Communications Table at a cost of £1 each or they can be purchased online at www.eden.co.uk or www.chpublishing.co.uk.
