Queen’s Jubilee Celebrations

Trinity celebrated 70 years with ease

And 50 luxurious and tasty high teas

With laden tables which lit up your eyes

And a cake which demanded a culinary prize


When we had completed all the afters

The singing really shook the rafters

After “Congratulations” and “Sweet Caroline”

Our National Anthem was divine.


And so, we bless our Gracious Queen

She kept her promise of service keen

What more can we ask of this dear lady

Another 10 years, perhaps, maybe.

Birthday Celebrations

Today we joined Alan in celebrating his 80th Birthday.  Penny made a lovely cake and Spike composed a poem for the occasion that Penny managed to reproduced onto the cake.  So that you don’t have to try and read it, it is below.

Alan’s Birthdays nearly here
So, everybody, raise a cheer
It’s 80 long years now folks
That’s just the age of his best jokes.

No longer at the Power Station
He lectures us about Creation
His services are like no other
We’re so pleased that he’s our brother

Birthday Celebrations

The church helped Lyn celebrate a significant birthday this year.  A member of the church was asked by her family to make a special cake for her, which she kindly shared with the congregation after the morning service.

Coffee Morning – welcome back

“It was wonderful to hear the buzz inside the church!” A comment we have been waiting for over these past months. A chance to show the community we are up and running! The coffee morning was appreciated not only by our members but by folk from other churches in the circuit.

Stalls of handicrafts and books and jewelry — as well as the always welcome cakes— provided a chance to chat, buy a little something and admire the talents on display. Sitting with a coffee gave people chance to catch up with friends and their latest news.

At present, £250 was raised, to be given to the Haiti appeal set up by All We Can , a Methodist Relief and Development charity— this being our chosen overseas charity. Thank you to all who donated. A double whammy, as they say!

In memory of Graham Porter

In our garden, we now have a new bench, bought with some of the donation from Graham Porter. Graham sadly died but this is a permanent reminder of his support for Trinity Church and Methodism in Taverham. He was a man of many talents but unassuming and kindly in his ways. His family were very important to him and along with his faith, supported him throughout his illness. He and his wife Deidre often opened their beautiful garden for fund raising events so as we sit in our church garden, we will think of Graham with fond memories.

Easter 2021

Easter Cross

In the words of the hymn, “see, what a morning, gloriously bright” couldn’t have been more appropriate for our first service after lockdown 2021! The sun shone, expectations were high and daffodils filled the church with colour and cheer. What an ideal Easter morning to celebrate the risen Jesus! To be with our friends and in a place we love – although socially distanced and masked! Thanks to our minister Mary for leading the communion service. We look forward to regular Sunday services in church but the usual Norwich North West Youtube service will continue for those unable to meet with us.

New Years Eve – Blickling

New Years Eve 2020, a cold but gloriously sunny day at Blickling! Walking the grounds felt a million miles from all the worry and sadness that this year has brought. Nature at its winter best with frost decorating hedges and trees and crisp underfoot, rather than muddy ground. The Tower is a holiday let now but in bygone days it saw guests sipping champagne while they watched the horse racing from the crenellated balcony. The race course has long disappeared but the building shone in the winter light. The lake looked a picture and was frozen in parts, making it difficult for the odd hardy fisherman! A welcome coffee and bacon bap beckoned at the end of our walk! Our county has beauty in varying ways, be it seaside, countryside or the Broads. Let us enjoy it — safely– in 2021. – Jean.

Harvest Festival 2020

Harvest 2020

Autumn days when Norfolk turns colder
And our mask steams up and changes our view,
Social distancing makes us all talk louder
Exiting church when given the cue,

But, we mustn’t forget,
no, we mustn’t forget
to say a great big thank you,
We mustn’t forget.

Sanitized flowers and wrapped up fruit and bread,
Tins piled high with shampoo in between ,
Hymns sung or hummed or quietly said,
Not how services have normally been.

But, we mustn’t forget,
no, we mustn’t forget,
to say a great big thank you,
We mustn’t forget.

Kevin reminds us of harvest in days gone by,
Tales of ploughing and rides on carts,
Now it’s stay at home and understanding why
Apps and tracing play a part,

But, we mustn’t forget,
no, we mustn’t forget
to say a great big thank you,
We mustn’t forget

We have our church, our health and our harvest,
The year moves on, the seasons come and go,
God has been with us throughout the worst and best
May we all be blessed and come to know,

That, we mustn’t forget,
no, we mustn’t forget,
to say a great big thank you,
We mustn’t forget.

In the style of hymn 121 Singing the Faith!

Sponsored Walk for HART

That time of year again when a few fit folk completed the sponsored walk from Lenwade to Whitwell. The weather was kind and pleasantly warm and the chat continuous! Tilly made the most of the stream and we avoided her after that! At the half way coffee stop we were joined by Mike, Jill and Vivienne who had no problem finding us this year! Scones, jam and cream were enjoyed before the return amble back to our cars. Thank you to all those who walked and those who sponsored us for our overseas charity HART.
