Trinity Church Sissinghurst
Revised times for private prayer in church.
Sissinghurst Trinity Church is open on Thursday 16th July from 12.00 to 1.00pm and St Mary's Frittenden Church (part of our joint benefice) is also open on Thursday 16th July from 9.30am-10.30am.
Services re-commencing back in church.
Following careful discussion, Pete and the Wardens have decided to offer a 6pm Compline service alternating between St Mary’s Frittenden & Trinity Church Sissinghurst, starting at St Mary's on the 12th and then Sunday 19th July at Trinity Church.
2m distancing means limited capacity, we hope this simple and short service will meet a particular need. We look forward to seeing you!
All our normal recorded online services will continue as will the 11.00am Zoom Coffee after service on a Sunday morning and the Prayer Hubs during the week.
On the Sunday services above the respective church will be open from 5.30pm for prayer prayer until the service starts at 6pm.
‘The Chosen’ is the first-ever multi-season TV show about the life of Jesus and created outside of the Hollywood system, The Chosen seeks to show us Christ through the eyes of those who knew him. It ties in really well with our current sermon series. The first four episodes are available via YouTube (or you can watch all 8 episodes of Series 1 on The Chosen app) Click on the picture for more details. Highly recommended viewing, it's extremely well portrayed. You need to stick with it to episode 2 to really appreciate it.
