Come and enjoy a little oasis of peace in the frenzy of Christmas preparations.
Admission free. Everyone is welcome!
Holy Trinity is a hive of happy busyness at this time of year and we hope we have something for everyone this Advent.
This weekend has seen the start of the celebrations at our Christmas Tree Festival. Decorated trees and Nativity sets have been donated by many local organisations and families. Our hope was to create a traditional Christmas calm in the middle of the Christmas rush. The sounds, smells and sights within the church are beautiful so with the help of the community we have certainly achieved our aim. We’re open until 5.30pm tomorrow evening, concluding the weekend with a traditional Evensong service. Why not join us?
This Sunday is the first one of the Church season that is called Advent; four weeks of expectation and preparation for the birth of Jesus Christ on Christmas Day. As we live and pray through the days of Advent it is a time to think about how the birth of Jesus affects each one of us. Will the celebration of the birth of Jesus change us? For many of us our Christian hopes become crystallised in the birth of the Christ child; we long for the message of peace and forgiveness that he promises. We long for unity amongst the nations, an end to war and conflict, relief to the sick and suffering and the spread of God’s universal love.
Lots to look forward to this Christmas on the music front and a range of things to suit all tastes.
Several choirs from across the dioceses are joining ours for a singalong during the Christmas Tree festival, so we do hope people will come and join in on Sat 7th Dec at 6pm for an hour of carols old and new.
The festival ends with evensong when the congregation will be able to join in a sung service and hymns on Sun 8th at 5.30pm - the first for the best part of ten years!
