During the pandemic
As lockdown eases we continue to follow government and Church of England guidelines and to meet online, and where we can safely now, in person. Prayer, praise and encouragement from the Word continues! On Sundays we are live streaming 10am Services and have started a 6.30pm Service in church with social distancing, as well as podcasts and youth and children's videos on our Holy Trinity YouTube Channel. The resources page signposts further good resources to encourage your faith.
Watch the video below to find out more about our church and what we're doing during lockdown.
9.30AM, 11.15AM AND 6.30PM EVERY SUNDAY
Communion on 1st (9.30am), 1st (11.15am) and 4th (6.30pm) Sundays of the month
You are welcome to any (or all!) of our three regular services, which all focus on the Word of God but each have a slightly different style:
9.30 am* This service includes contemporary music, children's groups for ages 2-14, and an informal atmosphere. The sermon is relayed to a creche for those looking after very young children. Refreshments are offered after the service.
11.15 am* This service includes organ music and hymns, and usually the same sermon is preached as at the 9.30am service. Refreshments are available before this service.
6.30 pm This is our most informal service, with contemporary music and a relaxed atmosphere. After the service is an opportunity to meet and encourage each other over refreshments, and Digging Deeper (14-18s) and our Student Group both meet.
* Note: Whilst generally we hold 9.30am and 11.15 am morning services, there are occasional Sundays when we vary these arrangements (eg holding a joint morning service). Please see our calendar for any variations to our normal morning pattern!
We look forward to meeting you!
What to expect when I visit the church
You can expect a warm welcome, and heartfelt worship to encourage and equip us all for life at work, school and home. We meet to pray, praise, encourage and be encouraged, serve and be served, remember the death of Jesus for us, and hear a relevant talk from the Bible.
There is also tea, coffee and simply spending time getting to know each other and help each other to follow Jesus!
What about children coming to church?
Once a month we have an All Age service at the 9.30am service where the whole church family worship and learn together, usually only lasting around 45 minutes. We have a fantastic programme every other Sunday for the children ages 2-14 in our 9.30am service. Children usually stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship together for the first part of the service. The speaker will make it clear where and when children need to go to their programme.
Children can expect to have fun playing games, and learning about God in a relevant way.
What about Communion?
Regularly we hold services of Holy Communion, when we remember with bread and wine the last meal that Jesus shared with friends. We welcome anyone to Communion who recognises Jesus as Lord and would normally take Communion in the church from which they have come. All bread is gluten-free.
Do come and join us!
