Mike WilkinsHere at Holy Trinity Church we are privileged to serve our parish and town. We long to be a church that shines with the love of Jesus, a church who Love God and Love Huddersfield. Indeed, this has been the case since the church was first opened way back in 1819, two hundred years ago this year!

To mark our 200th anniversary, we would love to invite everyone to this special week of free events – ‘Shine’.

I know that at times life does not always feel light, bright and breezy – but I am convinced (and have first-hand experience) that God longs to shine his light and love into our lives, transforming us and bringing us into a vivid, new quality of life. That is why I take Jesus at his word when he said “I am the Light of the world” – he shines, and so can we!

All of the events listed below are free to attend but it would be really helpful if you can sign up for any of the events you wish to attend.
