CHURCH OPENING

We have re-started public worship in church. For the time being we will be doing only the Sunday 10 am service. We will do the service in church with a congregation present, also broadcasting it live on the Facebook page for those who feel unable to join us in the building.

Watch the livestreamed service here www.facebook.com, and here’s the link to download the service sheet: Trinity Season – Service sheet

(Saturday 19th September – some people without a Facebook account are finding they can’t get past a log-in screen and so can no longer view our Facebook page as they would normally do. If this happens to you, we’re very sorry – this is new and is outside our control. If this problem continues, we’ll look into our options)

There is absolutely no pressure to come to church rather than watch from home. In particular those with greater need to isolate should think hard about whether they are yet ready to come to a public gathering.

Parents with young children also need to think about the limitations on what we can offer at the moment. Children will have to sit with their parents/carers throughout – we won’t have children’s groups at first, and the creche is sealed off. We’ll try to provide a worksheet each week – but you’ll need to bring your own crayons!

Holy Trinity prepared for public Sunday worship, July 2020

Please note that:

.  Unless you are exempt, we ask you to wear a face covering while in church

.  Toilets will not be open

.  You will be asked for your name and contact details on entry, to allow follow-up in the event of new cases

.  We ask you to use the hand sanitiser we provide, before coming into the main church

.  Everyone should maintain a safe 2 m distance from other people.

This may all seem a far cry from a ‘normal’ service at Holy Trinity , but it’s a big step forward! We’re looking forward to seeing you if you’re able to come, but if not, please do join us online.

(At the moment the church isn’t open at other times for visitors. We’ll open again as soon as we can. Please keep an eye on this website for updates.)

Past services can be viewed by going to our page of recorded services. For more information about resources for prayer and our response to the coronavirus situation, including suggestions for helping the community, please see our coronavirus response page.

We’re a friendly, open parish church in the heart of Sutton Coldfield where all are welcome, whether you’re visiting for the first time or have been coming here for many years.

We welcome people of all ages and at all stages in their Christian faith. Our churchmanship is ‘central’ and inclusive. We have a warm, comfortable, accessible church. Our facilities for children help them to feel part of the Church while allowing parents a space to worship and learn.

John Routh, Rector
