Wilsden Summer Coffee Evenings

The folks at Wilsden Trinity would like to thank all the people of Wilsden (and beyond) who supported our Summer Charity Coffee Evenings.

The Summer Coffee Evenings are a tradition brought to us by our friends from Harecroft Methodist Church who joined us a couple of years ago when their building sadly had to close due to structural problems. They held these events for many years, despite being a small church with very few and mostly elderly members. A shining example of what can be achieved with determination and commitment.

The Coffee Evenings are held on the second Monday evening of each month from May through to September and, besides being really pleasant social occasions, have raised an average of around £200 - £300 for each of the chosen charities, which this year have been:

The Lord Mayors Charity,
Manorlands,
The Alzheimer’s Society and
The Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Unusually, the August one was for the Church Building Fund, as we are raising money to pay for the extensive work carried out to our premises).

They have been hard work but very enjoyable and worthwhile. We hope to repeat them next summer for different charities and are confident that we can rely on your continued support.

If you have not already been to one of our coffee evenings then make a note for next summer. You will be made very welcome. It doesn’t often snow in summer - even in Wilsden - and we are not as far away and isolated as you may think. Also, we are blessed with stunning scenery so you may enjoy a pleasant summer evening drive over here. Your reward will be home-made scones, a bottomless coffee pot, a warm welcome and a chance to catch up with friends and perhaps make new ones.

Pancakes and Poems at Thornton

Pancakes and Poems, what a great evening we had on 13th February (Shrove Tuesday), in aid of 2nd Mile Project.

People were invited to come along for tea/supper and enjoy a variety of pancakes both savoury and sweet.


The selection was most tempting with fillings such as chilli. chicken and avocado, mushroom or cheese and onion. The sweet fillings were too many to mention, but my favourite was fresh fruits with ice cream – yum, yum.

Throughout the evening, many people had brought poems to read to everyone. The genre of this was amazing with funny, romantic, knowledgeable and even a little bit naughty.

It was good to be together with laughter and smiles all round. A special thank you to everyone who came and all who helped.

Virtual Worship - 14 June 2020

Call to worship (based on Psalm 100)Shout with joy to the Lord
Worship the Lord with gladness.
Know that the Lord is God
It is God who made us, and we are God’sEnter God’s gates with thanksgiving
Come into God’s courts with praise Give thanks to God and praise God’s holy name.
The Lord is good God’s love endures for ever. Amen.
PrayerLord God, you made us, and we are yours, we are your people, the sheep of your pasture. As we focus on you this morning, and acknowledge that your presence makes the place in which we do this (wherever it is) a holy space, touch our hearts afresh with your love, that our lips may praise you and our lives serve you in all things. Amen.

You might like to sing, or reflect on the words of, Hymn StF 363, which begins, “My Jesus, my Saviour, Lord there is none like you. All of my days I want to praise the wonders of your mighty love”.


Read Romans 5:1-8First silently to yourself, then, if you can, out loud, from the Message Bible. I love the way…
