          BIBLE STUDY AND PRAYER GROUPS          
Learn more about the meaning of life - join the Howe Trinity Bible Study Group The church has a bible fellowship whose principal aim is to try and bring the bible message and it's meaning alive to modern day living. This group has been meeting every Tuesday for over 12 years and still finds bible passages that surprise and challenge us today. They do not go in for sermons and everyone is encouraged to join in the discussion.

come and join us Formally known as the "House Group", the Wednesday Evening Study Group is an opportunity to meet other people in a relaxed atmosphere and develop friendships. It is an opportunity for bible study, in which everyone can contribute their thoughts. It is an opportunity for the honest facing of doubts and questions. It is a place for encouragement and mutual support. It is a place where people can come and just be, secure in the knowledge that they are accepted just as they are.

You are welcome to join us on every Wednesday during school term time - 7.30pm in the Church Hall Lounge.

MUSIC GROUPS
Howe Trinity Choir - if you can sing - you can be in! The choir was re-established in 2000 in order to strengthen the musical life of the congregation and support the praise.

The choir practices on the first Sunday of the month, and leads the praise at the morning service on the following Sunday, when there may be a short introit or anthem or a new hymn for the congregation to learn.

New members are always welcome. An ability to sing in tune is essential, the ability to read music is preferred, but not compulsory.
