Welcome to the website of Holy Trinity, Heworth.
Important Update about Worship in Holy Trinity
From July 4th the Government has given permission for places of worship to open for public Worship again and we would love to invite you to join us in the church building or online. Although the Church building was closed, Jesus continued to work in his church- the people of God - as we found new ways to meet with Him and with each other. Throughout Lockdown we have been recording sermons and making them available, along with home worship material, on this church website and on the Holy Trinity and Trinity Praise Facebook pages, and these will continue.
We have also been meeting together on Zoom for a time of worship and fellowship. These services will continue but, from this weekend, we are moving to a new time of 5.00 pm. If you send me an email to email@example.com I will be very happy to send you a link so that you can join us. Incidentally, one parent commented that she found Zoom easier than being in the church building because she could just mute herself when the children were being noisy.
From this Sunday (July 5th) onwards we will be returning into the church building for a socially distanced service of Holy Communion at 10.00 am. Under current restrictions this will be a said service, as singing in public places is not yet permitted. We are also limited to offering bread but not Communion Wine for those who choose to receive Communion. Children are welcome to this service but please be aware that we have removed all the toys and books from the church and, to protect the social distancing, they will not to be able to move around. Trinity praise is restarting as Zoom Service in October. This will be at 11:30am.
If you would like to pray quietly in church, then the building will be open from 9.00 – 10.00 am every Wednesday morning. At the request of those who attend we now include a short service of Morning Prayer during at 9.30 am. Thank you so much for taking time to visit our web site and we would love to welcome you, either into our church building, or to be part of our expanding on-line community.
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.
