Holy Trinity still active during lockdown

Holy Trinity Church, Heath Town

We are now six weeks into the lockdown arising from the coronavirus covid-19 pandemic. Like all organisations Holy Trinity has had to adapt quickly to the new situation as, following Government guidance and advice from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, we cannot meet in the church building or hall at present.

However we can still worship and pray together as our vicar, Revd Richard Merrick, has written recently:

'Our church building as significant as it is, is not the Church, neither are the archbishops, bishops and priests, at least not alone. We together are The Church, The Body of Christ! When we meet together to pray and to worship and praise The Living God, there is He in midst of us, even online. As we worship and pray together, even when we separated physically we are united in the Spirit as we worship in spirit and in truth. Be encouraged and know that the Lord is present with us at all times, and rejoice in this Easter season; for the Lord is Risen. He is Risen indeed, Alleluia!'

There is a lot still going on as you can see from the panel, and for those of the congregation who are not online we keep in touch by phone and a regular delivery of material on paper.
