It is with sadness and deep sorrow that Nigel died in December 2021 and abides and remains with his Lord. Nigel's influence in Trinity and our community is far reaching. A gentle, man of God who revealed the kindness and wisdom of God to so many is a witness of God's grace to us all.
Nigel will be sorely missed by us all at Trinity and by his precious family. We celebrated the fulness of Nigels life at a servcie of Thanksgiving in January 2022 and will be dedicating our peace garden at Trinity in memory of him in May 2022.
In December 2021 we said goodbye to Cheryl and Jenny who have served the community at Trinity for many years. On 1st January we welcomed Sarah Sanders into her new role as Building and Project Co-ordinator. Welcome Sarah.
Trinity Methodist Church is an active community in the heart of Ellesmere Port. Seen as a light in the community our doors are open to all.
During the 2020 and 2021 lockdowns due to Covid we remained open providing food in partnership with the Port Grocery and West Cheshire and Chester Foodbank. Jesus in John's gospel 21:17 asks his disciple Peter if he loved him - he asked him three times and "The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep".
Alongside working with our community during lockdown, a covid prayer garden was set up. Daily prayers were spoken as we remembered every person in the UK who had died from Covid 19. Black wool and blue for NHS Staff. Prayers for every individual, every family, every soul.
