During the last quarter, Trinity has again enjoyed a variety of events and worship. Around the time of the Queen’s 90th birthday, several groups held celebrations; the playgroup held a party, there was a garden party at the home of two of our members, raising funds to help with the general upkeep of the church (part of the roof is to be repaired), and the Women’s Evening Group hosted a party in the ‘royally’ bedecked church hall for themselves and the ladies from Knodishall.
The playgroup also concluded their summer term with another party and the ‘Singing Futures Children’s Choir’, who meet each week in term time at Trinity, enjoyed an end of term barbecue with family and friends before putting on a performance, highlighting their months of dedicated rehearsals, of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat’ to a very appreciative audience.
The Phoenix group celebrated summer with a strawberry tea.
For the second time, the church was used by Suffolk County Music as the venue for a day of music making for over 150 children, which involved instruments and singing, culminating in a performance for their parents.
The Trinity Singers have been busy rehearsing and amongst others have entertained our ‘neighbours’, the residents at Harleston House Care Home. They have recently been rehearsing to take part in the event in Norwich in September, when Roger Jones will be giving a talk about his musical achievements.
Volunteers have been busy on several occasions as part of working parties doing stirling work, tackling various jobs inside and outside, including smartening up the Memorial Garden.
The community cafe on a Monday morning continues to attract large numbers of both members and people from the wider community. In addition to the small hall being full, the lounge is increasingly filled with families of all ages meeting up, whilst babies and toddlers play with the toys provided. A wonderful, noisy, happy atmosphere prevails.
