Worship lies at the heart of the life of Holy Trinity Church. Through the daily round of prayer and praise and most especially in the celebration of the Eucharist, we recall in word and sacrament the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Due to current coronavirus restrictions we are open 10-5pm, Monday to Friday.
Our services are suspended apart from; our 11am Sung Eucharist, every Sunday and our 6.30pm Eucharist, every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Owing to the Pandemic, our only Sunday Service is the Sung Eucharist at 11am
8.30am Holy Communion
Sunday mornings begin at 8.30am in the Lady Chapel with a simple, said celebration of Holy Communion using the traditional language of the Book of Common Prayer. There is usually a short reflection on the scripture readings and the service lasts 30 minutes.
11.00am Sung Eucharist and Junior Church
The Sung Eucharist is the main celebration of the day and gathers together everybody from the youngest to the oldest members of our community. The liturgy and the music is beautiful and dignified and sermons seek to be lively and challenging. The service begins in the presence of our children who then leave for their own attractive, age-appropriate activities in Junior Church before returning for a blessing. The service, which lasts about 80 minutes, concludes with the singing of the Angelus and is followed by refreshments.
6.00pm Choral Evensong and Benediction
Choral Evensong is widely regarded to be one of the glories of the Church of England. At the end of Sunday we gather for this sublime act of worship, led by either our own musicians or a visiting choir, employing the traditional language of the Book of Common Prayer. There is no sermon but an extended devotion during Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament which concludes the service which usually lasts 50 minutes.
Owing to the Pandemic, for the time being there is no 1pm Eucharist on Wednesdays
1.00pm The Eucharist
The Eucharist is celebrated on Wednesdays in the Lady Chapel according to the Book of Common Prayer and lasts 30 minutes.
6.30pm The Eucharist
The Eucharist is celebrated in the Lady Chapel on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and on Thursdays in the Chapel of the Resurrection using the Church of England’s contemporary liturgy.
The Eucharist on the first Tuesday of the month includes the laying on of hands and anointing with oil for healing.
The Eucharist on the first Thursday of the month is a Requiem Mass at which we pray especially for those whose anniversaries of death fall in the coming weeks.
