Welcome to the website of Holy Trinity, Heworth.
Update about Worship in Holy Trinity - Revised March 16th 2021
Following the Governments announcement of the roadmap easing lockdown restrictions, we have reviewed our position on the Church closure and are planning a gradual re-opening of the building for public worship. Starting at Easter, we will be holding services in Church on alternate weeks. Due to the ongoing restrictions on gatherings and social distancing requirements, capacity in the Church will continue to be limited. We are planning to broadcast these services on Zoom. The format of the services has not been finalised yet, but we are not currently able to sing, so services will remain said-services. We will be continuing our morning services at 10:00am on Zoom on alternate weeks. You can download our service plan. Every week you will find home worship material (for adults and children) on our "Worship in Lockdown" page; along with recordings of our sermons from the Zoom service. We will be continuing Trinity Praise by Zoom, monthly at 11.30am until the summer. If you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org we will be very happy to send you a link to either of these services so that you can join us.
In the 4th chapter of his letter to the church in Philippi the Apostle Paul wrote: “The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” In these disturbing, fearful and unpredictable times we seek to both experience and share the peace that we get through placing Jesus right at the heart of all we do.
Revd Michael Woodmansey
Michael retired on Sunday 15 November. At the moment services are being led by Jim Roberts and Gerald Hovenden on alternate weeks.
Parish Annual Meeting
We shall be holding our Annual Parish Council Meeting on Monday 17 May at 7:15pm. This will be held on zoom only. At this meeting we will be electing our Churchwardens and members of the PCC. Nomination forms for these positions are available in church. We will also be updating our Electoral Roll. If you are not on it and wish to be added, application forms are available in church. An invite to the meeting will be sent to everyone who currently gets our invites for zoom services. If you are not on these lists, and would like to attend the APCM, please send an email to email@example.com. Documents for the meeting can be found in the APCM Documents folder
Holy Trinity Church Hall
If you have walked past the church hall on Melrosegate over the last couple of months, you may have noticed that it has been out of action; and for the last few weeks work has been taking place inside. In October several pieces of the original plasterboard roof lining broke away and fell through the suspended ceiling. We had to arrange for the removal of the plasterboard and replacement of the suspended ceiling. This work has now been completed. You can see pictures of the damage and work done in our photo albums. As with most charities, the Church is struggling with income at the moment, and would be very grateful for any donations towards this work. If you are able to make a donation by Bank Transfer, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will supply the required details.
