Neil Trood RIP Neil's Funeral Mass will be
streamed only on Tuesday this week at
11.00am, as attendance in person has to be
limited to family only.

Eveline Osborne RIP Eveline's funeral will take
place at Holy Trinity on Wednesday 3 March at
11.30am. Again, this will be restricted to family
only, who do not wish the service to be streamed. There
will be a Requiem for her that day (time to be decided)
which will be streamed.

Food Parcels 134 copious canvas shopping
bags were filled with spuds, onions, cereals,
pasta, rice, biscuits and tuna. We distributed
the provisions to HT, Minerva, Holway Park, Priorswood
and Lyngford Park Primaries. Food was additionally
provided by the Co-op, Open Door, Greggs and residents
of Trinity Street and Alma Street. We are considering
fruit bag distribution in a few weeks' time and then
another large bag for Easter. We wouldn't have been
able to do it without HT support - so thank you, everyone.

Easter Lilies As the church will be open for
public worship this Easter unlike last Easter, we
will be having Easter Lilies once again. Last
year's monies have been rolled forward, so if
you bought lilies last year, there is no need to do so
again. Full details will be sent out with the weekly
update at the end of this week.

Lockdown Helpline If you’re finding lockdown
tough, then Premier Life Line is the National
Christian helpline. It is open 9 am to midnight
on 0300 111 0101 and offers a listening ear, someone to
talk to plus emotional and spiritual support. You may find
it helpful while we are all in Lockdown. Keep safe.

Jigsaw Puzzles Please feel to borrow any
jigsaws from the back of church. If you can
have some you could donate to the 'library',
that'd be very helpful. Jigsaws may be donated or
returned to the pew against the back wall.
