Families and Children
A message from the Church of England
Tuesday 17 March 2020 at 13:30
IN LIGHT OF THE GOVERNMENT GUIDANCE AROUND NON-ESSENTIAL CONTACT, THE ARCHBISHOPS OF CANTERBURY AND YORK HAVE ISSUED ADVICE THAT PUBLIC WORSHIP IS SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Churches should be open where possible but with no public worship services taking place.
Holy Trinity Church will remain open for private prayer each day, and updates will be added to our web-site as appropriate
Rev Sue Diggory
Apart from the weekly Sunday Eucharist, Holy Trinity has family services on the 1st Sunday of the month.
Sunday Club for over 3's meets during the Sunday Eucharist and there is a Creche with toys at the back of the church.
Baptisms normally take place during a Sunday morning service, so the church congregation can welcome the child into the Church.
Confirmations by the Bishop take place every year in one of the local churches.
Sunday Club, for children who are at Nursery or Primary School will take place during the 10.00am service and meet weekly apart from the first Sunday of the month when we will be introducing a Family Service.
The children will go to their activities after the first part of the service and return for a blessing during Communion and share with us at the end of the service what they have been doing.
Registration forms to comply with Diocesan guidelines will be available in church from September.
If any older youngsters would be interested in helping please have a word with me, as we are very aware that their needs need to be thought about too.
Toddler (and Baby) Time
It takes place on the first Tuesday of the month from 2.00pm – 3.00pm in the Church
It's for toddlers, babies, mums, dads and carers
Come and join us for toys, chat, tea, biscuits a story and a prayer
