Our Worship

On Sundays we gather in Holy Communion.  You might know this as Communion, the Lord’s Table, the Eucharist or the Mass: or you might not know what we mean!  Every week, the people of God, Christ’s body in the world today, gather around the bread and wine, the Body and Blood of Christ, and celebrate God’s love!

Midweek Communion

Midweek Communion

On Thursdays at 5.30pm: a simple, quiet service of Holy Communion with no music and plenty of space to pray and reflect.  The sound of the birdsong and the wind in the trees fills the church! Occasionally, if a Priest is not available, Holy Communion is replaced by Evening Prayer led by a member of the Lay Team. Again the emphasis is on quiet and thoughtful worship.

 

 

Sundays at 10.30am we have a sung eucharist – the main weekly act of worship, with hymns played on the organ and a ‘mass setting’ sung for parts of the service.  We celebrate using a modern (1982) or sometimes a traditional (1970) liturgy.  Sometimes the service uses bread and wine from the ‘reserved sacrament,’ elements blessed at an earlier service in the week.  Children come to this service, and gather at the opening for a short activity.  They have their own activities during the service, and gather at the communion and to share what they’ve been doing. Coffee  and other refreshments are served after the service.  Parking can be a little exciting at our busy little church – see ‘Find Us’ for advice on where best to park!

Holy Trinity is part of the Anglican Communion, in the same family of churches as the Church of England, the Church in Wales, the Church of Ireland, and The Episcopal Church in the United States. We are also in communion with the Scandinavian Lutheran churches and the Old Catholic churches.
