Everyone will by now be aware that in response to the Coronavirus outbreak and following the advice of our Archbishops,  all public services and other events have been suspended at Holy Trinity as at all other Church of England churches. However Holy Trinity will be able to open at 11.00 am on Sundays for private prayer only.

 

There are also limited exceptions to enable baptisms, weddings, and funerals to take place.

 

Whilst we wait for a new priest to be appointed, if you have any need for the help of a priest, please continue as usual to phone our office number 07570 597873, and one of our Church Wardens will arrange assistance for you.

 

Bishop Jonathan has issued a Pastoral Letter in response to the current situation which can be read here http://www.holytrinityilkeston.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/20.03.20-Pastoral-letter.pdf

 

For anyone looking for online resources during this period of uncertainty, the text of the Mass for each day appears on the website of St George in the Meadows, Nottingham ( another Forward in Faith parish ) here
