Have a Heart campaign

This year's Have a Heart campaign will begin next Sunday November 16th when we will have an unseasonably early Christmas tree at the back of church at the 10.30am and 7pm services. On it will be red hearts with the name of a child at a local children’s home or at a centre for victimised women, with a suggestion of a suitable gift which the child would love to receive ‘from St Nicholas’ on 6th December. Please will you be as generous as you have been in past years - take a heart, buy a present / presents  (total value maximum €20) and return the wrapped, labelled present(s) to church on the following Sunday, or at the very latest on November 30th.

There will be room for Holy Trinity people, but seating will be limited. We may need to have a sound and vision overflow in the Walker Hall as well. It would be very helpful if you could let the office know if you hope to be there and how many of your family will attend (preferably by email if you can, to with the subject line: Installation HTB).
