HTB News and upcoming events

Mothers of Pre Schoolers (MOPS)

Mothers of Pre Schoolers (MOPS), a group for mothers with small children, is going through a transition phase. As is often in the international community, people are coming and going. The group attendance has been low and there are a lack of leaders to keep the group going next year. They would like to host a meeting to invite any interested Christian moms to help lead this group that is run out of IBC (the International Baptist Church). This meeting is scheduled for Friday 18th September, and more information will be available nearer the time, but if you might be interested please put it in your diary.

Preview of Cavell Mass

On Sunday 28th June during the 10.30 service there will be a preview performance of the new Cavell Mass by David Mitchell.

Midweek Holy Communion

The last midweek service of Holy Communion will take place this Wednesday, 24th June at 12.30.  There will then be a break over the summer holidays before resuming in September.

Men's Group visit to the Mechelen Toy Museum (Speelgoedmuseum).

On Saturday 27 June the Men's Group will be visiting this excellent collection of toys, games, pass-times and hobbies from throughout the ages. Meet either at the Museum entrance at 10:15 (Nekkerspoelstraat 21, B-2800 Mechelen) or Gare Centrale at 09:15 to travel together as a group. A light lunch can be bought from the cafeteria afterwards. Entrance fee is 8.50 euros (plus a small contribution for a guide). Please let Dave Harding know if you would like to come (craftymatelot@aol.com). 

Sustain&Renew Prayer Evening

One of the most effective ways to enact change is to draw near to God and ask for God's help. Alongside this, we can do our best to encourage movement by joining with others all around the world in fasting on the first of every month for the issue of climate change to be taken seriously and fought. As a follow-up to the Sustain&Renew event on 13 June, we invite members of Holy Trinity to fast from after dinner on Tuesday 30th June and join us for half an hour of prayer before breaking fast together with an evening meal on Wednesday 1st July. The service of prayer will begin at 19h30, followed by a meal in Church House. If you would like to attend, please let Naomi know (naomi.brown@holytrinity.be) and bring with you a few euros to donate to cover the cost of the meal.

Exodus Vision

This year the Exodus Vision Team was in Malawi and Zambia from the 4th to 21st June.  They took 1000 Bibles to various churches and offered training to Pastors.  They visited several different churches preaching the Word of God and also visited projects they had started earlier.   The ASBL Exodus Vision Belgium would like to thank all those who have supported their association spiritually and financially.  This Sunday one of the participating team members, Faustin, from California, will take part in the service at 14.00.

Holy Trinity & Serve the City Community Dinner

Due to Ramadan, most of our friends who we would have invited to the community dinner on the 20th June would be unable to attend. We will be canceling the event and postponing to a later date in the coming weeks. More to be announced soon. Thanks for having such willing hearts to serve, we know God will open up another amazing opportunity for our church serving in this way.

The British Charitable Fund

The British Charitable Fund (BCF) was founded by the Duke of Wellington after the battle of Waterloo (1815) to help British soldiers and their dependants in the aftermath of battle.  200 years on, under the patronage of King Philippe of Belgium and the presidency of H.E. Alison Rose, British Ambassador to Belgium, BCF continues its work in helping needy people with a British connection living in Belgium in a wide variety of circumstances.  A tax-registered charity with all its helpers as volunteers, BCF relies on financial support from donors. In commemoration of its bicentennial year BCF is seeking 200 new donors.  To mark this significant anniversary the Duke of Wellington will plant a tree at the inauguration of the renovated Mont Saint Jean farmhouse which served as a hospital for the Allied troops during the battle, and which will now become a Brasserie.  Holy Trinity has a long supportive association with BCF, and is currently represented on its committee by our pastoral assistant, Janet Sayers.  For more information see www.bcfund.be
