13th September HTB cyclists to cycle the 100km Gordel route

Calling all cyclists (important – change of date!): A group of cyclists from HTB are planning to cycle the 100km Gordel route, partly with the aim of raising money for the church house development fund and partly just to enjoy each other’s company and see some new parts of Brussels. Please note that the date for this event has now changed to Saturday 13th September. If any other cyclists are up for the challenge, you’re very welcome to join us. And if you don’t want to cycle, please offer to sponsor us! Please contact: janice.weatherley@gmail.com for details.

No 7 p.m. service on July 19th

On Sunday July 20th there will be no 7 p.m. service.

Contemporary Views of the Trinity

Our Church Architect, Richard Craddock, recommends an exhibition currently being held at the Cathedral of St-Michel and Ste-Gudule on the theme of Contemporary Views of the Trinity. One of the six artists participating is Sabine Corman (wife of Etienne Tribolet, the designer of our most recent stained-glass windows), her tryptich is inspired by Proverbs 8:18-31 'I was formed since eternity, at the very beginning I was created, when he traced the foundations of the earth, I was by his side; I was his delight, rejoicing always in his presence'.  An element of her work was a reflexion on potentially expressing the Trinity along the archway in our own Holy Trinity entrance. The exhibition is open every day except during services, till 1st September 2014. Information can be found on the website www.cathedralisbruxellensis.be
