The Trinity, at work in us.

Trinity portrays the unity of God the Father, God the Son and God the holy Spirit. From Latin Trinitas which means threefold. 

We believe that there is one God who we see as the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. This is a way of describing God who is Lord over the universe. 

“Yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.”
(1 Corinthians 8:6). 

Jesus always talked about the unity that existed between him and the Father and the Holy Spirit. This moves us into being united with him as well so that we can get to the Father through him. He has also asked the Father who has sent unto us the Holy Spirit the advocate and comforter who will lead us into all truth, therefore making us fit for purpose.

The unity of the triune God must move all and sundry to come together in love and unity to work for the greater good of the Church of God just as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit coexists. 

Although there is one God who exists eternally as three distinct persons, there is nothing that is secret between them, they all work in unison and there is no discord in them.  

In our lives as Christians, we are individual instruments in a symphony orchestra playing different parts, but working together to achieve harmony of sounds which will be pleasing to all.

Thank you so much to all the children and to Fr. Josiah and to Susan for such an uplifting and spirit filled service of Pentecost last Sunday – the children were absolutely amazing and we look forward to more in the future. 

Sunday School will be running for an hour after Mass each Sunday from next week.

Please sign up for Parish Giving (which is a wonderful way to support St. Anselm and helps us claim more money from the government) Go to or call the Parish Giving Team directly on 0333 002 1271 quoting our parish number, which is: 230 623 503.

Thanks to everyone who has signed up to take Food Hygiene Training so we can offer our little coffee bike at various events and for the 59 Club evenings soon to be arriving at St. Anselm. Training will be next week so there’s still time to sign up if you would like to be part of it.

We need volunteers for the tea and coffee after church. The rota isn’t getting very much love and it often falls to Fr. Josiah, Fr. Matthew, Susan or Ruth to sort it quickly at the end of mass. It really needs some dedicated love! Please see Ruth or sign up on the sheet at the door.
