Every second Saturday in September, cyclists and walkers across the country are out to raise money for their local County Churches Trust - including all the churches in our Circuit! The idea began in Suffolk and has spread across the rest of the country. The Ride & Stride is the principal source of income for SHCT to make grants available towards repairs and restoration costs for churches of all Christian traditions. The Ride & Stride is volunteer-run and ecumenical. Participants are encouraged to seek sponsors who will undertake to pay an agreed sum of money for each church or chapel visited on Ride & Stride Day.Money raised by cyclists and walkers is distributed 50:50 between SHCT and the place of worship nominated by the participant.

Creation - The World in 7 Days? - Genesis 1: 1 - 27
Sunday 10th November - 4:00pm - 6:00pm
We explored the creation story this month, one of the most challenging themes we've done at Messy Church.
The story in Genesis contains the truth that there is a purpose behind creation, order brought from chaos in the beginning. All creation is God's work and needs to be valued.
Humanity (us!) has a responsibility to be stewards of God's creation. After the Fall, Jesus comes to give us a new beginning. As we did exciting activities exploring Light & Darkness - Earth, Sea & Sky - Sun, Moon & Stars - Fish, Birds, Animals & People - we can share and learn together, whatever our age!
Our last session - Sunday 13th October
Theme: Gladness & Generosity
(2 Corinthians 9)
This month our theme was gladness and generosity – a time to remember all the wonderful things that we have and how we can share that with other people. We had another excellent session with a lovely atmosphere, several old friends and a new family coming to join us.
A smile is one of the gifts you have and is so important, if someone smiles at you then usually you return it – so we hope during the week you will think of the gifts you have and how you can share them with other people.
Trinity Methodist Church is a member of Churches Together in St Edmundsbury and District. We believe in being united in Spirit and Truth, by worshipping and serving our Lord God and Saviour together! We want to love others as we have been loved, to reach, affect and support the communities that we are in.
