June 2020 marks the 150th anniversary of Holy Trinity Richmond, and we are celebrating with a year of events, challenges and commemorations, culminating with a big celebration on Trinity Sunday 2021. Here's what's happening at the moment:
Zoom Celebration Social!
We are having a church social via Zoom on Sunday 21st June after the morning service at 11am. We will meet for about half an hour, in a large group and also in small groups to ensure we can chat with one another and catch up about each other's lives. You should have received an invitation to this if you are on the church mailing list but if you haven't, or if you know of someone who would like to join in but hasn’t received this information, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
To celebrate our 150th during the social, we invite you to create a 150th flag to wave when we meet. This could be something very simple (like a piece of paper taped to a pencil!) or something more elaborate – whatever you have time and inspiration to do!
To help celebrate our 150th anniversary this year we are running a competition to design a logo for our year of celebration! Prizes can be won as well as the opportunity for your logo to be used throughout the year. This competition is open to anyone and the children of Holy Trinity School have been invited to enter as well. Have a go at designing a logo for our anniversary in any form you like and send it via email to email@example.com by midday on Friday 10th July. We are really looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
150 things to be thankful for
Here’s a challenge for you for this year ahead: why not see if you can write down 150 things to thank God for over the course of this year? You don’t have to do it all today! But why not find a notebook and make it a habit to notice and write down things to thank God for. You could number them and see if you get to at least 150 things by June next year! Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a whole church each with 150 things to share? You can do that at any age, so why not share that as a family if that’s appropriate?
