In-touch Online

In-touch is the magazine for all the Ealing Trinity Circuit. The coronavirus pandemic is made us think about new ways to do things and new ways to communicate with people. So, we have decided to create In-touch Online as the online version of our print magazine. We will be adding articles and information on  a regular basis, so check back frequently to see what's new.
