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. Here’s the link www.facebook.com, and here’s the link to download the service sheet: Trinity Season – Service sheet
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!
We will be taking lots of precautions to keep us all as safe as possible. For details, read John’s letter 9th July 2020
Update 24th July 2020: Following the recent strong advice of the Church of England, we ask that everyone coming into the church wear a face mask. This will also let us move chairs a little closer together, so allowing more people to attend the service safely.
Please note that:
. 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.
(We have decided not to continue to open for private prayer during the week. We’ll open again for those who wish to visit the church as soon as we can. Please keep an eye on this website for updates.)
For more information about past services, resources for prayer and our response to the coronavirus situation, including suggestions for helping the community, please see our coronavirus response page.
Where to watch the livestreamed service
From now on, you will only be able to view the service live by going to our Facebook page. We’re hoping to be able to put the video of the service up here on the homepage afterwards.
Videos and activities for the children
The weekly recorded children’s video will be uploaded on Sunday mornings https://www.facebook.com/HolyTrinityChurchSC/
More of our previous videos and activities for the children can be found on 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
