Junior / Youth Church
Junior Church is for the younger members of our church. Everyone is together in church for the first part of our 10.45am Sunday morning worship and then the young people go to the blue room for their own activities. Parents of toddlers are welcome to go with them for the Junior Church activities.
Junior/Youth Church Mission Statement
The Junior/Youth Church here at Trinity like to make new friends in learning about God and helping each other. We like to discuss our ideas, opinions and beliefs and strive to support each other in spreading the Word. We aim to make a positive difference in and around our own community and Church, so that God’s love can reach out to all.
(I am including the following letter, so that everyone knows how seriously the URC is taking safeguarding and that support is at hand should it be required. Ed. Nov 2017)
PEOPLE AND CHURCHES
Hi, I’m Julie Rafferty and I recently retired from the Cheshire Police after serving 30 years as a police officer. Most of my service I have been involved in criminal investigation and for the last nine years of my service I worked in the public protection arena, supervising teams of detectives to manage sex offenders in the community and investigating sexual and violent offences committed against the most vulnerable members of the community; as a result, I am passionate about safeguarding and ensuring that children and vulnerable adults are protected and heard.
I am really pleased to be appointed as the Safeguarding Advisor for Mersey and North-Western Synods and feel I have the experience and knowledge to support the URC churches in the two areas. As the Safeguarding Advisor, my main responsibilities will be:
Delivery of safeguarding training to ministers and volunteers
Creating safer environments within the church, ensuring that key individuals have current DBS checks in place
Responding to safeguarding concerns
Ensuring that churches have up to date Safeguarding policies and procedures
Looking forward to meeting you all, in the meantime if anyone wants any help or advice, I am contactable on:
TRINITY’S FAMILY NATIVITY SERVICE
This lovely picture shows the group of young people who took part in Trinity’s Family Nativity Service on the evening of Friday 21st December. The service was well received, so thank you to all those who took part in any way.
These ‘Elder’ shepherds were amongst the more mature cast members.....I won’t say ‘Guess who!’
