We are delighted to have appointed a family worker to work alongside our minister and elders and to further develop our outreach within the local community. Mrs Christine Grundy was commissioned on Sunday 18 September 2011 Christine is taking forward a number of initiatives to develop the work of our church within the local community, including working with local schools and the hospital chaplaincy team.
Christine Grundy can be contacted on:
Little Fishes Toddler Group (above), initiated by Christine and a team of dedicated volunteers, meets every Monday during term time from 9.30 am to 11.30 am.
The Young Carers group (Trinity Stars pictures below) meets on a Wednesday at Trinity when we have a meal together (hot & cold food). We try to vary the meals with healthy options; it is lovely sitting sharing a meal together with the children and leaders. Since we began the group have enjoyed a number of craft activities and other events.
