Holy Trinity Church continues to be closed for services, but is now open for private prayer.

Everyone is welcome to find peace and grace within our beautiful building, while respecting the necessary distancing measures in place. In particular, note that only families are currently allowed to pray in groups.

We aim to have the doors open from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. daily, but please allow for flexibility at the beginning and end of this window.

 

While the church building remains closed for services, please check our services and sermons page regularly for new opportunities to worship at home, and our Inspired Ideas page for activities and stories ideal for families to share.

A prayer for this time of anxiety:
God of all compassion, your love never fails. Help us to listen to the tranquillity of your presence within our lives, so that we may grow in the knowledge that your Son, Jesus Christ, walks beside us, and your Holy Spirit comforts us at the heart of our being; for you are One God, world without end. Amen

With love from Michael and all at Holy Trinity

Thought for the Season

“So much better were it in these our dwellings of peace, to endure any inconvenience whatsoever in the outward frame, than in desire of alteration, thus to set the whole house on fire.”

Richard Hooker, ‘On the Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity,’ (1594)
