New Web Site - Wantage and Abingdon Methodist Circuit

For those who don't know what a Circuit is, we are a group of nine churches working together, united by geography, by supporting one another and by sharing our resources of ministers, preachers and property.

On the new web site you will find pictures of the nine churches with links to their individual web sites. There is a Who's who in the Circuit. Publications include the quarterly preaching plan. There is a combined calendar for all events from the churches. And much more.

Visit Wantage and Abingdon Methodist Circuit to find out more.

Trinity Toddlers 30th Anniversary

Trinity toddlers celebrated their 30th anniversary in July 2017. A big thankyou was said to all the helpers past and present. Helpers provide support for all the mums, dads, grandparents, carers and children who come. A special mention was made to the longest serving volunteer, Marjorie Wallis, who has helped ever since the group started. She continues to help every week on the welcome desk.

The group starts back on the 14th September after the summer holidays.

(Thanks to the Trinity Toddlers Facebook Page for the picture.)


Deacon Selina Nisbett

Congratulation to Deacon Selina Nisbett who was Ordained at Darlington Street Methodist Church on Sunday 25th June.

Experience Easter

2017 marked our 8th and biggest yet Experience Easter, visited by around 500 people. Between Wednesday 30th and Friday 31st March 390 school children and their staff joined us, including groups from Kingfisher Special School, who had their very own sensory Easter Encounter back at school.

Then on Thursday 30th March there was a Musical Easter Journey with Abingdon Gospel Choir followed by a Family Open Morning on Saturday April 1st.

WITNESS - a new musical

Witness: On Sunday 9th April at Trinity Church, there was a Circuit Service in the form of a performance of the musical, Witness (composed by James Garnett).

Witness tells the Easter story from the perspectives of those whose lives it touched, including bystanders, Jesus' disciples, those in power, and - in particular - the crowd. Through songs and monologues we were invited to experience a range of responses from the excitement of Palm Sunday to the desolation of Good Friday and the wonder of Easter Day.

The performance was watched by about 100 people. Refreshments were served afterwards, and there was  a retiring collection for charities chosen by the cast.
