We are a Church of England parish in the Diocese of Derby and in the South East Derbyshire Deanery and are fully committed to the life and work of the diocese. Ever since the creation of the parish in the 1880s we have been in the Anglo-Catholic tradition and this is a position which we still firmly maintain. Some years ago, the PCC passed a Resolution under the House of Bishop’s Declaration (having previously been resolution A, B and C parishes) and we are therefore affiliated to The Society of St Wilfrid and St Hilda and a Forward in Faith parish. As such we are under the pastoral care of the Bishop of Oswestry, Bishop Paul Thomas, who is a specially appointed Bishop ministering to parishes like ours over a wide area of England and is based in the diocese of Lichfield.

  Although we are a separate parish with our own identity, we have for many years had a special relationship with St Laurence’s, Long Eaton, as we are united not only by having the same Parish Priest but also share the same Anglo-Catholic tradition. We also share some services and other events throughout the course of the year. The post of Priest-in-charge at Holy Trinity (and Vicar of St Laurence, Long Eaton) is currently vacant.
