Over the weekend of September 15th and 16th we are pleased to once again support the Abergavenny Food Festival, now in its 20th year, and host some of the stalls and this year host a series of Tasting Workshops. 

Again we will serve Tea on the Vicarage Lawn and host talks and displays in the Church


We will again host at the Priory Centre. Full details. 




Worldwide, two thirds of people who are forced to leave their homes remain in their own country. Seeking safety but unwilling or unable to cross a border, they are largely ignored by the international community and denied the official protection afforded to refugees.

More than 40 million people are displaced within their own country. If we knew all their names, it would take us well over a year to read them aloud – even without stopping to sleep.The reasons for their displacement are many: conflict, flooding, drought, fear. But invariably, the poorest face the hardest challenges. Displacement leaves many without a safe place to call home. It increases the chances of losing out on jobs and education, and it puts people at increased risk of violence.

The UN and its member states are currently working
on two new agreements on refugees and migration, yet neither will tackle the problem of internal displacement. The world can and must do better. All people on the move should be protected from harm and have a chance to rebuild their lives.

During the weekend you will be  able to view a Christian Aid Display and read how you may help and campaign for them.

On Wednesday, September 12th  at 7pm the Exhibition will be launched with public meeting at which you can hear from speakers, one with first hand experience.

Tea on the Lawn

In addition to our usual Tea on the Lawn we will also have a stall selling produce baked in Holy Trinity Church Hall Kitchen by Syrian Refugees resident in Abergavenny.

Year of the Marriage.

Our Year of Celebration of Marriage will draw to close with a display in church over the weekend of Wedding dresses, including three dresses worn at the weddings’ of three generations of the same family.

Food Justice

For the third year we will play host to Just Food Abergavenny’s fridge event  This year they   address food, poverty and power.  Join us on Friday September 14th, 7pm.
