At Holy Trinity we believe that the message of Jesus is good news for everyone and we are excited to invite others to get to know him.
To this end, we regularly run an Alpha course where people can get together, share a meal and explore who Jesus is and what difference he makes in our lives.
We also host lots of exciting events where you can come and join in and get a taste of Holy Trinity. Perhaps you’re hoping to invite a friend, colleague or family member to church? As well as our Sunday services, why not come and bring them with you to a Men’s breakfast, Women’s event, Children’s activities or to enjoy a lunch and good company at our monthly ‘Meeting Point’ gathering.
Serving our local community
We also want to bless our local community. In 2018 we undertook an in-depth Community Audit with the help of Futurekraft to find out in more detail what the needs of our parish are and how we might contribute to meeting those needs at the same time as sharing the love of Jesus. The data has now been analysed and our Local Outreach Team are exploring how we move forward. A summary of the audit and some areas for development is available to view or download. The video below outlines what we did and some of what we found.
We have recently appointed Babs White as our voluntary ‘Community Connections Coordinator’. If you have ideas about how we can better connect and serve our local community please contact Babs by email firstname.lastname@example.org or via the office – 01484 513213.
