Messy Church - A way of being Church for families involving fun.  Found across the world (ours has a link with a Messy Church in Port Stanley in the Falklands), values are Christ-centred, for all ages and based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.  Second Sunday of the month at 4:00pm with a break for Summer in August. All children are welcome, accompanied by an adult.

Our latest Messy Church was on Sunday 14th April.  To mark the beginning of Holy Week with Palm Sunday, we focussed on the Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem with Jesus riding on a donkey.    

Pin on the Donkeys Tail

Hosanna Banner

We made banners to proclaim Hosanna! to the King of Kings and palm branches and played the favourite party game Pin The Tail On The Donkey.  Then we processed into church with our banners and palm branches!

House Groups meet for Bible Study and prayer with lively, interesting and often thought-provoking discussions in various homes around the town.  We now have four groups which meet on a regular basis the 2nd and 4th week of every month with a break for August - on Monday mornings at Eastgate House,  led by Josie Keys and David Wakeford at 10:30pm, on Tuesday evenings at different members' homes from 7:30pm led by Supernumerary Minister Rev Vaughan Tong, plus two Thursday groups.  The Thursday morning group meets at 10:45am at Trinity, whilst the Thursday evening group meets at different members' homes at 7:30pm.  Our Thursday groups are led by either Rev Vaughan Tong or Rev Val Spencer.

We are studying the 2019 York Course, which we hope will help us in our thinking as a Church in what is becoming an increasingly exciting time of opportunity.  The theme is "Daring to see God now".

Many organisations and groups use our premises during the week -  Bury Drop-in Centre, Bury St Edmunds Amateur Operatics and Dramatics Society, Fair Ladies of Bury (Ladies' Morris Dancers), Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Tai Chi, Exercise Classes.
