Encouraging things are happening at Holy Trinity!

  • We have a growing congregation giving generously to the needs of the Church and the wider world.
  • We have a distinct form of worship and the strong musical tradition that attracts members from the parish and well beyond.
  • To help us be more effective, we are training more people to be involved in the life of the Church and in service to the community.
  • We work with Christians of other denominations and would like others to know more about the faith we share here.
  • Children and young people make our regular Family Communion Service a lively and enjoyable occasion.

Please join us

We belong to Trinity because it brings strength and a deeper meaning to our lives.

Christianity is about a new beginning whatever our circumstances and hope for the future however young or old we are. If you want to know more, come along to one of our services: we shall be delighted to see you.

Church Growth

  • Churches grow when people discover them, find something important to them in them, and stay with them.
  • Churches grow when their members live out, in their lives with other people, what they have found in the Christian Gospel.
  • Churches grow when they are inviting and welcoming places, in which worship has some sparkle and maybe some holiness to it, and in which you find a lively concern to explore faith and link it to our lives and our world.

What else is going on? Quite a lot actually

  • We have finished the restoration of the church building to make it safe and usable for the next generation.
  • The social calendar has events throughout the year and our Parish Centre hosts many activities.
  • Strong links have been formed with several agencies in the community including Southport College, YMCA, CVS, NHS and Light for Life.

Flowers at Holy Trinity

Flowers around the alter for Harvest Festival, October 2017 raised funds for Water Aid

Flowers at Holly Trinity

At Holy Trinity we pride ourselves in having floral arrangements throughout the year, apart from during the seasons of Advent and Lent, to enhance the beauty of our church.

Members of the congregation are invited to make a donation , perhaps in memory of a loved one or to celebrate a special birthday or anniversary, for example with their money going towards the cost of the flowers.

The flower team comprises a group of volunteers who enjoy having the opportunity to create large and small-scale arrangements. Should you be reading this and thinking you would like to join the team but feel you may not have the necessary experience, please rest assured that we are all self-taught and that
you would not be expected to tackle a pedestal arrangement until you felt ready to do so. We normally
work in pairs either on a Friday or Saturday morning, coming together for the big festivals such as
Christmas, Easter, Trinity Sunday and Harvest.

Three members of the team belong to the Church of England Flower Arrangers’ Association and are, therefore, able to help with flower arranging at the Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool. Duties there give us the opportunity to arrange flowers for weekly services, weddings, special events & services and flower
