Welcome to the Trinity Benefice. Each parish offers a variety of services and Christian activities and we seek, as a benefice, to provide a welcome and offer opportunities for all from any church tradition or none. As you will see, services in the benefice range from Sung Eucharist to non-liturgical, from holding hymnbooks to using Power Point, from traditional to less formal. Whatever labels might be used our focus is the same: to grow in our relationship with God, to show Jesus to the world, and our unity in Christ both within and beyond the Benefice.
We welcome enquiries about baptisms, weddings and other special services and have a huge selection of services, events and groups that might be of interest to you. Our aim is to provide you with useful information about our Benefice, its staff, facilities, groups and friends. Feel free to browse this site and if you have any comments or questions, or simply need more information then please contact us.
It is with great sadness that we heard the news that Prince Philip passed away. May he rest in peace and rise in glory. Prince Philip was such a great servant to our country, and it is right and proper that we should honour him. Here is a link to a statement from Bishop Rose: https://youtu.be/WVKjNhhkgOE
A prayer for Prince Philip:
God of our lives, we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip, for his love of our country, and for his devotion to duty. We entrust him now to your love and mercy, through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.
Saturday 17th April will be a Day of National Mourning. All three churches will be open for Private Prayer between 11 and 1 pm and the bells will be rung for 5 minutes at 12 noon. The funeral will be televised live at 3 pm.
