Music at Holy Trinity

The musical life of the church is very active, with the choir performing regularly during services.

The choir

The choir sings at the 10am Parish Eucharist service every Sunday throughout the year, and also at special services. It aims to provide a mix of modern and traditional church music, and regularly sings an anthem, canticles, responses and psalms.

We rehearse every Friday evening from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.

We are always glad to welcome new members and we are particularly keen to recruit basses and tenors. An ability to read music is not essential, but a sense of humour definitely is! If you enjoy singing and feel tempted to give it a go, just come along to a Friday rehearsal and have a word with Derek Griffin, our director of music, or one of the choir members.

The organ

We are fortunate to have a fine organ – a three-manual instrument with tracker action – built in 1903 by J W Walker, with a case designed by C E Pointing.

The organ was refurbished in 1986 by Bishop and White of Ringwood when the tracker action was lightened and additional stops provided. Visiting organists give recitals at the church from time to time.

    Nota Bene Singers Music for Choir and Organ


    In 2002, the group now known as the Nota Bene Singers was founded by Gay Corran a local resident, John Holloway the Musical Director and Ian Fox organist.

    The group meet in Lulworth twice a year; with singers coming from all parts of the country to rehearse for a weekend culminating in a Festal Service in West Lulworth. They have toured twice in France, performing in Cathedrals and churches around Lectoure in the Gers region.

    I am therefore delighted to say that as a special treat they will perform for us in Holy Trinity Church on Sunday 18 February at 6pm when we shall hear them sing a varied programme of music – encompassing Stanford, Durefle, Jenkins, Mendelssohn, Bach and Sumison - and enjoy socialising with them over a finger buffet afterwards.

    They will rehearse in church on Friday evening and all day Saturday (16-17 Feb).

    Tickets - £10 for the concert and £15 for the concert and buffet – are available from Janet Hall who has arranged this event.

    The singers and organist are covering all their costs and giving their services free which means all profits go to Holy Trinity.

    Once again we will be marking Fairtrade Fortnight by holding a Big Brew in the church. Join us for a cup of Fairtrade tea or coffee and a slice of delicious homemade cake for just £2.00.

    All proceeds will go towards the work of Traidcraft Exchange, supporting their ‘Hidden Entrepreneur’ Appeal which focuses on people in developing countries who have the talent and determination to succeed, but lack the opportunity.

    As an extra bonus, this year every donation will be matched by the UK Government meaning twice as much money goes to help people build businesses and create a better future for their families and communities.

Pastoral Care for St Nicholas Congregation

Father Andrew has successfully secured an alternative venue for our Wednesday Eucharist and a once a month Sunday Service (for those members of St Nicholas who are unable to get to Holy Trinity). We are grateful to Gracewell Community of Weymouth who have offered to accommodate us in one of their small community rooms. As from Wednesday 7th March we will continue to share together in the Eucharist at 10am at Gracewell, which is next to Holy Trinity School, Cross Road. During Lent this will be followed by our Lent Course. The first Sunday Service will be on Easter Day at 9am and thereafter on the fourth Sunday of each month at 9am.
