Trinity Lights are a group of young adults from Holy Trinity Church in their 20s, 30s and 40s. We meet together regularly for discussion and fellowship. In our last Trinity Lights blog we mentioned a few of our events so far: a discussion on how we reconcile the world of science with our Christian faith, a Q and A session at the vicarage, and a couple of meetings on prayer including ‘why do some prayers seem to go unanswered?’. Trinity Lights continues with more of the same and some new things to explore.
Many young adults in the congregation felt they would like opportunities to meet socially outside of church on Sunday. Curry night seems to be a popular event.
Our meal at the Bashundora in November was a great opportunity to spend time getting to know some of the newer members of the congregation. It was also a chance for people catch up with others for a more leisurely chat than coffee after the Sunday service sometimes allows. Plus… the food was really good and, following a recommendation, I am now hooked on BBC2’s ‘Rev’. In early January we will have another social to celebrate 1 year of Trinity Lights. Look out on facebook for more details of this event.
We continue to meet at each other’s houses for Bible study and discussion. Currently we are exploring the Emmaus course giving us an opportunity to learn more about and grow our faith. In the first session we asked, “Is God really there?” and “How do we ‘see’ Him?” It’s interesting to hear about people’s relationship with God and the different ways we each see Him. The important thing is that the atmosphere is relaxed and all views and opinions are respected. The Emmaus course continues in the New Year and goes on to explore the foundations of Christianity, providing lots of opportunities for learning and discussion. We hope that our varied programme means everyone can attend events that suit them.
In the New Year we want Trinity Lights to be a light in our community. Our vision is that we can provide fellowship on many levels. So, as well as continuing with meeting at our homes and going out socially, we will come together to support Holy Trinity and the people in our community. My personal hope is that as a group Trinity Lights can play its part in more of the great activities and events that are ongoing at Holy Trinity.
Also, that in time, we might contribute something new to the life at our Church. We’re always looking for new ideas. If you have any suggestions please feel free to contact Becky or Marette on firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime join us on Facebook, www.facebook.com/HolyTrinityChurchSC, where you will be kept up to date with information on meetings, including our social events for 2012.
