Welcome to Holy Trinity Parish Church
In quietness and trust shall be your strength
In returning and rest you shall be saved.
Cast your burden upon the Lord,
and he will sustain you.
Glory to God, Source of all being,
Eternal Word and Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and shall be forever. Amen.
This beautiful prayer was written by an Italian priest who is self-isolating at the moment and very sadly lost his own brother a few days ago to Covid-19...
I'm staying at home, Lord!
I'm staying at home, Lord! And today, I realise, you taught me this,
remaining obedient to the Father, for thirty years in the house of Nazareth,
waiting for the great mission.
I stay at home, Lord, and in Joseph's studio, your keeper and mine, I learn to work, to obey, to round the corners of my life and prepare you a work of art.
I'm staying at home, Lord! And I know that I am not alone because Mary, like any mother, is in the next room, doing chores and preparing lunch for all of us, God's family.
I'm staying at home, Lord! And I do it responsibly for my own good, for the health of my city, for my loved ones, and for the good of my brother, whom you have put beside me, asking me to take care of him in the garden of life.
I'm staying at home, Lord! And in the silence of Nazareth, I pledge to pray, to read, study, meditate, be useful for small jobs, in order to make our home more beautiful and more welcoming.
I'm staying at home, Lord! And in the morning, I thank you for the new day you give me, trying not to spoil it and welcome it with wonder, as a gift and an Easter surprise.
I'm staying at home, Lord! And at noon I will receive the greeting of the angel, I will make myself useful for love, in communion with you who have made you flesh to live among us; and, tired of the journey, thirsty, I will meet you at Jacob's well, and thirsty for love on the Cross.
I'm staying at home, Lord! And if the evening takes me melancholy, I will invoke you like the disciples of Emmaus: stay with us, the evening has arrived and the sun sets.
I'm staying at home, Lord! And in the night, in communion of prayer with the many sick, the lonely and all the caregivers, I will wait for the dawn to sing your mercy again and tell everyone that, in the storms, you have been my refuge.
I'm staying at home, Lord! And I don't feel alone and abandoned, because you told me: I'm with you every day. yes, and especially in these days of confusion, O Lord, in which, if my presence is not necessary, I will reach everyone, only with the wings of prayer.

During the interregnum we are very proud to say that our numbers and support has grown both in the church where numbers have doubled and in the halls where we can proudly say that our halls are used by over 400 children and adults every week.
Apart from all that we are getting fresh enquires every week for the halls and coming up to \christmas the whole of St Bede's school will use the church for their nativity also Yellow dots use the church for their Christmas concert
So add the whole of St Bedes and yellow dots to the 400 already using Holy Trinity and we have 1500+ using Holy Trinity.
Add to this our neighbours who although not regular worshippers enjoy the benefits of rare open space in the centre of such a busy, polluted city our grounds have been described as a rare oasis of peace and tranquillity in a busy world.
If you would like to enjoy the peace and tranquillity we have please feel free
