The Hive Needs You

Over the last three years the Hive Cafe has grown beyond expectations and has become an integral part of our village life.

It is valued by many for various reasons and has become a lifeline to several of our customers where they can meet with friends for a chat over coffee and lunch, or just come to the cafe and chat with the volunteers.

  • Do you like meeting people and have a few hours to spare each week, every other week, or even just once a month?
  • Would you like to be part of an initiative which reaches out to the village and beyond to welcome visitors to our village?

We would love to hear from you to help keep this valuable resource open and running.

We work in 2 small teams each day:

  • Mornings: 9.30 – 1.00
  • Afternoons: 1.00 – 4.30

You will be led by a Support Worker who will show you what to do and will always be on hand to offer support and advice.

If you would like to come along for a “Taster” session just to find out what we do and how we have fun.

Please contact Mervyn Roberts.

We look forward to meeting you.

Meet our new Rector – Rev Andy Wadsworth

Rev Andy Wadsworth

Where are you from?

I was born in Barnet, but my parents soon moved out to a village called Ickleford, in Hertfordshire. Mum and Dad still live in the same house and we recently celebrated 50 years of ‘home’ being at ‘Long Meadow’ which coincidentally we have noticed, is the name of our new neighbour’s house in Wild Oak Lane. I have then lived in lots of places including West London, Oxford, Plymouth and most recently in North London.

How did you come to know Jesus?

I had the wonderful privilege of being brought up in a Christian home and going to the Village Church but it wasn’t until I was 14 that I came to believe and trust in Jesus as my Saviour and Lord. I went along to a Christian group at school and one evening the speaker clearly and simply told us the gospel and that I needed to respond with a decision to follow Christ. I prayed a prayer of commitment and had a chat with the speaker. I still treasure the letter he wrote to me the following day encouraging me to ‘stick with the CU and stick with Jesus’ and I would grow in my faith. They were wise words.

Please tell us about your journey into ministry.

I worked as shopping centre development surveyor for 11 years while a member at St Barnabas, West Kensington. I came to realise that I didn’t have enough time to do my job well and to serve as much as I wanted to at church. Friends encouraged me to consider full-time ordained ministry with the gifts they saw in me, and that was very much part of my sense of God’s call for me to ‘push doors’ to see whether this was where God was leading. After many months of discernment I was selected for training and left London, work and church to go to Wycliffe Hall

How did you and Katie meet? Please tell us about her and the children.

A mountain-top experience in Uganda … long story! We married 15 months later while I was at Wycliffe Hall training for CofE ministry and while Katie was working as an A&E Nurse. We have 3 children and we’re all looking forward to walking Tatty, our new Cocker Spaniel puppy, around the village.

What hobbies do you all enjoy?

We all enjoy tennis, walking, and sometimes running. I hope to rekindle my mountain-biking on the Quantock Hills. The boys and I watch lots of sport – and I am afraid to say that, like Adrian, I am also a lifelong supporter of West Ham Utd.

When are you joining us? When do you officially start?

We are moving in on 8th August and my licensing is on Wednesday 5th Sept. My first Sunday services will be on Sunday 9th Sept.

What can we pray about for you, Katie and the children as you prepare to move here?

We are very much looking forward to meeting everyone and serving the churches – please be patient as we try and remember names and faces. Please pray for all of us as we move down to Trull and seek to put down roots quickly – that we would make friends and be good friends to you. Finally, please pray that we would leave well from our home here in north London as we say goodbye to Grace Church and other friends.

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 →
