Well what have the Social Committee been up to lately? We supported the Friends' concerts with the refreshments, working in the new refreshment space we have in church. Refreshments for the All Souls Service and Candlelit Carol Service. We held a 'Big Breakfast' event in November which turned out to be very popular. We have had a trip to the Lichfield Garrick Theatre to see the Sleeping Beauty Pantomime.
We are going to see the 2017 Gang Show on the 25th February, it is usually very good and well worth seeing, the uniformed organisations put so much effort and hard work into the content and performance, adults and kids.
We thought it was about time we had a party, we have been waiting till the church reordering project was over and now was the time. We thought we were a little too late to organize things for Christmas and Burns Night, and St George’s Day was a little too distant … so we settled on St Patrick's Day. Well to be more precise the day after the official day, but a good excuse either way.
As with all social events we just aim to break even, if we mismanage and make a small profit it will go to Holy Trinity's nominated charity, which for this year is split between Acacia Family Support - which offers Pre- and Post-natal depression support services to families across Birmingham - and Emma Sykes project in Malawi. Tickets are available from the Trinity Centre office.
What else will be coming up in the future? We will be making posies for the Mothering Sunday service, help is always appreciated especially from children and dads. Hot cross buns and refreshments on Good Friday; there are the Friends' concerts coming up in March, May and July. We haven't discussed it yet but we will probably be holding a quiz evening in the coming months and another 'Big Breakfast'. Any other ideas are always welcome, just let Sue or Colin know and they will be considered.
