Whilst services at Trinity have been suspended, there are other opportunities for worship - see below.
We hope that you do not feel isolated (even if you may be 'self-isolating') - your friends at Trinity are only a phone call away.
Weekly worship from the Bury St Edmunds Methodist Circuit
Each week the circuit ministers will prepare a worship sheet for everyone. This will be available on a Tuesday. It will be sent by email to those for whom we have an email address and by post to all others. If you receive it by post and have an email address then please let Revd Debbie Borda know (01284 754574).
We hope that you will all use it on a Sunday morning at 10.30 a.m. In order that as a circuit we are worshipping together and we can draw on the strength of that knowledge, we need to hold this situation in prayer. In time we will look to recording or live streaming.
To help you journey through Holy Week you will find a Meditation (below) for reflection – there is a reading for each day of Holy Week.
Thank you to Rita Carr for writing the worship sheet this week and to Ruth Ridge for producing the Holy Week Meditation.
We understand that some people did not get the email and attachments last week – if you hear of anyone who has not received then do please let me know.
I am continuing to post out – 102 letters sent today – the sheets for those not on internet.
If you hear of anyone who would like the service sheet, then either let me know or forward it on to them.
I found it a real privilege to be worshipping with so many around the circuit on Sunday, it gives us strength to know that we are a community praying together.
You will see that I have put in the newsletter about praying the Lord’s Prayer with someone at 12noon each day – just phone a different person each day – I have found this so comforting and moving and have often ended up in tears. We have a great God who will see us through this and it is good to know that he is always with us.
