Welcome to Holy Trinity Smethwick’s home on the internet.
Each year we meet to remember those we have loved and lost in death. We welcome all who have had a funeral service at Holy Trinity as well as any others who would like to come and quietly remember those whose loss they mourn.
The service is on Sunday 5th November at 4.00pm at Holy Trinity Smethwick. The service lasts no more than one hour.
If you would like to see some of the work we have been doing have a look at: You tube: faithful friends on tour
We have now visited Worcester, North Cornwall, Wrexham prison, the Yemeni Community Centre West Bromwich, Ladywood, the Smethwick Guru Nanak Gurdwara and the Mosque and Madrassa in Dewsbury. Each visit has been very special in different ways and has enabled a deeper understanding between those of us Making the pilgrimages together to these special places. If you would like to see some films of the visits please visit You Tube, Faithful Friends On Tour.
We were due to fly to India on 8.10.17 on the next stage of our journey together but we have had to postpone this, probably till January due to some of the team being unable to get visas in time. I thank God for all I am learning and experiencing through this project and for the funding bodies that have made this possible. The project has now been recognised by Coventry Cathedral for its first Together for Hope award which is a new worldwide programme and we are working with them and Sandwell MBC to plan an event in Sandwell in early 2018 to receive that award.
Thank you for your prayers and encouragement of this project.
