Trinity Sunday stands at a pivotal point of the Christian year, separating the season of the great festivals of Easter, the Ascension, and the giving of God’s Holy Spirit at Pentecost. From now until Advent is what is called a period of ‘Ordinary Time’ when many of the teachings of the Church are recalled and applied in the lives of believers.

The Trinity itself, or perhaps we should say ‘themselves’, is not a concept easy to grasp. But the image above may remind us of the baptism of Jesus when, alongside him, God the Father was heard speaking to him from Heaven, while the Holy Spirit was observed descending on the newly baptised Christ in the form of a gentle dove. Here, as in few other places in Scripture, there can be said to be a near-perfect portrayal of the Trinity, every member of which is in complete harmony and working together in love.

please use the
button marked CONTACT US at the top of this page, and your message will be conveyed to the most appropriate person as soon as it is picked up
– certainly the same day.

If the matter is sufficiently urgent and you would rather telephone, then please ring Lionel Holmes
on 01647 440113 or 07931 890255.
We can put you in touch with a member of the ministry team, should you wish to discuss church or personal matters

– or just have a chat.

Let our churches inspire you!

The four parish churches and one chapel that comprise this benefice are all cultural icons of the communities they serve and are of considerable heritage importance.

Much more than that, however, they are also living centres of Christian worship, offering peace and solace to all who enter them, and the Good News of Jesus Christ – as relevant as ever to the needs of a turbulent world.

So please come and explore our website and find out more.
