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

Latest News

Holy Trinity Church is now closed until further notice.

While this continues, please do check the website regularly, as we will be uploading resources for people to interact in the worshipping life of the community.

Please log on each Sunday at 9.45 a.m., to join Fr Michael in celebrating Eucharist for you and the parish, with a chance to talk with others in small groups afterwards. Full details of this online broadcast, how to join, and steps to take, can be found here.

Each week’s prayers, readings, sermons, and news will continue to be posted on our Latest Services page.

We invite everyone to celebrate the gift of God’s life and love each Sunday at 9.45am (normally our main Eucharist service), by following the service at home using this guide.

During this Holy Week, try using our ‘Though We Are Many‘ resources as a daily devotional (originally designed as a Lent course, there are five topics, with readings and questions to ponder, or discuss as a family).

Also very helpful are these Holy Week devotional resources from the Diocese of Norwich, written by Hilary’s cousin, Susanna Gunner, the diocesan adviser in spirituality and discipleship.

For those with children at home, take a look at our new ‘Inspired Ideas Online!‘ page, and new additions daily to our ‘Sunday’s Cool‘ page, featuring ways to engage your children’s spirits in the home.

We are applying to the diocese for permission to carry out extensive refurbishment of the Church building’s stonework – you can read details of the work, and how to register any comments or objections, on this public notice.

Thought for the Season

“The religion of Christ is not a tidbit after one’s bread; on the contrary, it is the bread or it is nothing. People should at least understand and concede this if they call themselves Christian.”

“Christianity preaches the infinite worth of that which is seemingly worthless and the infinite worthlessness of that which is seemingly so valued.”

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, lectures given to students in Barcelona (1928)
