Just two years ago, we launched the Friends of Holy Trinity Parish Church. Since then, we've signed up over 90 members and presented 12 concerts and 2 Christmas Tree Festivals, raising over a £20,000 surplus in the process.
Our mission has remained constant - to deliver an inspiration programme of events to ensure that Holy Trinity remains at the very heart of Sutton Coldfield and to
raise funds for the building and fabric of Holy Trinity. It's been heartening to receive kind offers of sponsorship for publicity and concerts not only from our 2 corporate supporters - Dignity
plc and CM2000 - but also from a number of individuals keen to show their support.
It's been energising to see so many of our church community engaged with the Friends as committee members, concert stewards, refreshment providers, stage hands, website developers, Tweeters, bankers ... and many many more.
As usual, the 3rd season of Friends events sees us offering a superb and diverse line-up of events ranging from CBSO's The Little Big Time Band (our kick-off Royal Town Gala Concert on the 10th October 2015), Radio 2 Folk Awards nominee Will Pound, through to our first theatrical performance by Lichfield Festival's Intimate Theatre. More information and online booking is available now on this very website.
As far as fund raising goes, a significant sum has already been passed to Holy Trinity's PCC to enable the restoration of the chancel ceiling. The funds raised by the Friends really really make a difference to Holy Trinity over the coming years so that other monies can be freed up to focus on mission and outreach.
Please do think about purchasing a Friends subscription (£15 for an Adult, £10 for a Child, £30 for a Family). This will keep you up -to-date with all of our activities and get you a complimentary programme at all events.
We look forward to welcoming you at a concert or event in the near future!
Nick Revell, Chair of Friends
