*Trinity Sports night The Outreach Group has organised a new event for Saturday 5th March. The church is hiring the Leisure Centre in Tenterden from 6.00PM – 9.30PM. We will have exclusive use of the swimming pool and there will be opportunities for other sports as well. But, this is an evening you will enjoy even if you are not sporty as there will be activities for the less energetic also! This event is a great opportunity to invite friends and neighbours. An invitation leaflet will be available shortly. Put the date in your diary!
*Thursday 11th February – Representatives from SAT 7 will be coming to us. SAT 7 is an amazing ministry which produces and broadcasts TV programmes to the Middle East and N Africa. Do come if you can. This is a strategic work for the Gospel at this time in the history of these regions.
*‘True Christian maturity’: A couple of weeks ago we began a new sermon series on 1 Corinthians, entitled ‘True Christian Maturity’ Do come along to these services as we explore this challenging letter together.
*John and Marion McDonald travelled to “Morning Star” in South Africa on 16th January and will be staying there for a month. Morning Star is a day centre that cares for underprivileged children with HIV/AIDS. Trinity has had a long association with this Christian organisation and we are delighted that John and Marion can give their valuable time and expertise to the Centre.
* Charity Lunch: Nathaniel Brooks & Ian Oliver hope to go out to Romania this year and are planning some fund raising activities. Ian and Megan went with the local group ‘Cry in the Dark’ last year and helped the very poor people with a variety of projects. The first event will be a charity lunch on Sunday February 21st at one o clock at the London Beach hotel. Please speak to Ian for details about booking a meal.
*The Learn2Serve course which will begin in February is now taking shape and it would be really helpful if you are seriously wanting to be on the course, that you let Peter our Pastor know as soon as possible. Do speak to him if there are matters about the course you would like clarifying.
* If you need prayer: At the end of the morning services there will be a couple of members each week available for prayer or discussion concerning what has been preached during that morning sermon. If you would like to talk to them or pray please make your way to the rear seats of the building where they will be sitting.
*Church membership: Perhaps you are not a member of Trinity Baptist Church yet, although you come along virtually every week. If you would like to know more about baptism and membership do speak to Peter, our pastor, for more information.
*News Sheet and Hall booking: Please remember to pass any news items for inclusion in our news sheet, by 12.30pm on Thursday. If you would like to use the church for meetings etc., speak to Chris Mercer so that he can put these onto the church’s google calendar.
*The local church Evangelical ministers are working together to develop a course to train future leaders and any who are involved in church ministry, who may not be leaders as such, but who want to develop their gifts for future service. Do speak to Peter if you want to know more at this stage. More details will follow shortly.
*10ofthose: Trinity is now linked with the Christian book shop “10ofthose”.

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.
*The “Bible by the Beach” Conference is now being advertised and there are leaflets available at the front of the church. The dates for the conference are 29th April-2nd May 2016.
*Morning Star, which works in South Africa working with children and young people suffering from HIV/AIDS, is offering the opportunity to anyone who is prepared to spend ten weeks next year working with the organisation. The anticipated dates are 21st March – 31st May. Have a word with John and Marion McDonald if you are interested.
*Car parking: For a while now we have been able to park our cars in the car park which belongs to the housing association property, opposite the church.
However, this now appears to be causing some difficulty for the residents so we are being asked if we would now avoid using that area and just park in the nearby roads. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
* 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.
