Holy Trinity Church is open daily for private prayer.

Please check our services and sermons page regularly for new opportunities to worship at home.

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

“But first I want you to tell me this: do you know the power of love? Christ passed over all the marvellous works which were to be performed by the apostles and said, “By this shall men know that ye are my disciples, if ye love one another.””

St. John Chrysostom
