Thank you all so much for your shoeboxes this year. Every year our church takes part in the Samaritan’s Purse Shoebox Appeal where a shoebox is filled with presents and decorated as a Christmas gift for children all over the world. Please consider being part of this very worthwhile venture. You can even build you shoebox on-line this year. https://www.samaritans-purse.org.uk/…/operation…
The main week for collections is November 9th to the 14th. The Entertainer in the Metro Centre is the nearest collection point but you can bring your shoeboxes to Church on a Wednesday between 1pm and 3pm and of course on a Sunday morning between 9am and 10:15am. We’ll make sure they get to the collection point for you.
We have now made arrangements to open for private prayer.
Open for Private Prayer
Wednesday 1:30pm – 2:30pm
Holy Trinity Church will be open for private prayer on Wednesdays’ between 1:30pm and 2:30pm. Arrangements will be in place to comply with Covid19 guidelines provided by the UK Government and Durham Diocese and we hope you will feel confident to use the space for quiet reflection and personal prayer. You may find our Prayers For Covid19 Pandemic booklet helpful. As a Church we continue to pray for our community of Swalwell and look forward to welcoming everyone back into church life in the future.
However we are mindful that there are still people who are ‘shielding’ and others in ‘vulnerable groups’ and we all must decide for ourselves how safe we feel in any situation.
