As a church, we are a group of people who meet together to worship Jesus Christ and share our lives with each other. We aim to be a focal point in the local community for people to learn about God and His plan in their lives.  

We think of ourselves as a group of people travelling with Jesus. Everyone is welcome, without exception. – there is always space for someone else and we’d love you to be with us on our journey. 

We are trying to “reach outwards”, Holy Trinity Church wants to share the powerful love of God in Jesus Christ with all who live in the parish. You are welcome to join us at any of our Sunday and Mid-week services and other gatherings.  

We would also love to meet families seeking baptisms and make church weddings possible for couples who feel this is important. We want to be there for you during any difficulties or illness or through our funeral work when you lose a loved one.  

We are part of the Church of England. Our worship is friendly, traditional but also relaxed; please come along… you’ll receive a warm welcome.
