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.
Death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip
Along with everyone, we are saddened by the announcement of the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. A response has been made by the Bishop of Selby to this sad news.
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 email@example.com and we will supply the required details.
