After a rendezvous and coffee at the famous tearoom in the heart of Antwerp, ‘Désiré de Lille’, https://desiredelille.be/en/, professional Antwerp tour guide, Dirk Vannot will take us on a two-hour walk through the old city. We’ll revisit some of the sights on last year’s tour as well as new sights. At the end of the tour, around noon, for those who can stay, we’ll have an optional lunch together. Please send a mail to Richard Simpson at richardsimpson1@hotmail.com by Thursday 21 April if you’d like to join us. Train details from Brussels will be communicated to those who sign up. Please consider bringing your friends who will be most welcome. 

Calling all musicians!

On Saturday 23rd April, from 10h15-16h30, there will be a complete day of music training at HTB.  It will include times of devotion and prayer and talking, as well as specific band training for HTB musicians and vocal coaching for the singers, and a jam session. Professionals have been engaged to give these trainings which will be mostly in the praise & worship genre, focussing on playing with a band. This training day is free of charge but we will go around with the hat to cover some of the cost.  Do you sing or play an instrument, do you enjoy playing with others? Would you like to be more involved with our worship? Then email Sara Mäkipää (saralvan@gmail.com) for more info. Sign-up until April 7th.

Eucharist for the Blessing of the Oils March 22

As well as our usual Holy Week services, one of the annual Diocesan services, the Eucharist for the Blessing of the Oils and the Renewal of Commitment to Ministry takes place in Holy Trinity this year on Tuesday March 22 at 12 noon.  Clergy and other ministers will be coming from across the diocese.  Bishop Robert will preside and Colin Williams, one of the archdeacons will preach.  It would be very good to have many members of Holy Trinity in the congregation (it should be over by 1.30pm).   If you would be able to help to provide a simple lunch for our visitors, please let John Wilkinson know.
