*Mike and Alison Roper: ‘We would like to say a big thank you for the wonderful lunch last Sunday which really took us by surprise! It was great to see so many there and we were quite overwhelmed by the love shown to us – especially through the very generous gift token, the iconic picture of Tenterden to remember you all by and the many cards given to us. We will miss you all very much – we’ve grown together as a church family over nearly 17 years so Trinity has been a huge part of our lives and those of Tom, Ben and William over that time. However we hope to be back to visit from time to time and I’m sure we’ll stay in touch. Our love to you all and God’s richest blessing for the future’.
*Reminder cards: There are “Reminder Cards” available at the front of the church, which list the events, both regular and special, which are planned for the coming months. Do take one as an aid to your prayers, and preparation in inviting friends and neighbours to the evangelistic events.
*Meal with a Message: There will be a “Meal with a Message” on Saturday May 16th. Do be in prayer about inviting friends and neighbours to this event. Remember that places will be limited, so priority will be given to those bringing guests. More information and a sign- up sheet will be available shortly.

Click the image below to view the recommended books:
This is an excellent resource for purchasing Christian books at a discounted rate and their catalogue is extensive. You can access the site from our web page. When you enter the site from our web page, you will find a number of books I have recommended as being particularly relevant to us here at Trinity. Peter.
Evening Services: Do try to come to our evening services over the next few weeks as we look together at the magnificent book of Genesis. There is so much in the early chapters of this book which help to explain the state of our world and the hope there is in the great redemptive purposes of God.
Books, Books, Books:…. we have some new books recommended by Peter, our Pastor, that you may wish to peruse and buy for yourself or as a Christmas gift. These include ‘Evidence for the Bible’ by Brian Edwards which is an excellent coffee table book. Retail price £25 but Trinity price is £10′. Jean Smith will be on hand if you have queries or wish to place further orders!
* Homewood School: There is a prayer meeting for Homewood School and its Christian Schools Worker, Nathan Wilson on the first Thursday of each month at 1.30 – 2.30pm at the school.
