This is a group who meet monthly for social events. It was named because Trinity members felt there was a gap in the range of activities available. It also stands for Group for Active People. It is run by members of Trinity and friends are also encouraged. All ages are welcome and some events are more active than others! The group has run for many years but after a rest started again in November 2017. Recent events have included a skittles night in Moulton , a board games evening, a visit to Llanerch Vineyard for wine tasting and a trip to the Royal Mint. The July event was a walk at Park Slip, Aberkenfig and an interesting talk.
The August event was a quiz at the Seagull, Nottage on Friday 17th August. The proceeds were in aid of Trinity Care&Support. We didn't win the quiz but made a reasonable effort and the 16 members who attended had an enjoyable and thought provoking time. The food was good too!
On Monday 24th September we held a pottery creating session from 6.30 to 8.30 PM. The cost was £5.00 for the clay and it was held in room 5 in Trinity Church. Glazing of the pots and other creations will take place on Monday 8th October from 6.30 to 7.30.
All who attended thoroughly enjoyed the session and we are looking forward to seeing their finished creations.
The first session was held on Sunday 15th April and was a great success. Twenty five children attended together with their families. Messy Church is held monthly on the 3rd Sunday of the month between 2 and 4 pm. It is a fun way for children aged 0-10 to encounter God through Activities, Cafe, Crafts, Food, Games, Play, Song, Stories and Interactive Worship. There will be time for children to relax and have fun. All are welcome to join us, friends, family and neighbours. The Mothers and Toddlers session held on Thursday mornings is very popular and we hope we can build on its success in this new venture for children. Our second session was equally successful and included a wedding theme. The third session was held on Father's Day and had a family theme. The children made cards and did a treasure hunt searching for family members, amongst many other activities.
After a break for school holidays we had a Harvest themed session in September which was well attended and enjoyed by all.
The next session will be on Sunday 21st October at 2pm. The theme will be darkness and light. There will be pumpkin rolling, apple bobbing, lantern making, face masks and many more activities.
Malvern Autumn Show.
This trip was organised for 29th September and 36 people attended. They had a wonderful time and enjoyed the art, crafts, food, animals, flowers and much more. They are hoping to return next year and there is also talk of a trip to the Spring show and possibly Hampton Court in December.
Vintage Afternoon Tea.
A Vintage Afternoon Tea, organised by Porthcawl Fairtrade Town Group, will be held at Trinity on Saturday 20th October from 2pm to 4pm.
It is hoped to create a nostalgic atmosphere like that of the old Lyons Coffee Houses. So, a musical duo, the ScottMcNicholasExperience, will be providing live music while our waitresses serve a selection of delicious homemade cakes with Fairtrade ingredients. Fairtrade Tea or coffee will also be served.
All this for only £3. Do come and enjoy a relaxing afternoon.
