    Praying Together During Lent 2018

    We are being encouraged across our Diocese to pray through St Mark’s Gospel during Lent 2018.  Booklets, which will be available shortly at the back of our churches, will give us a daily reflection written by individuals across the Diocese of Salisbury.  The hope is that this will further enable those using the resource to feel part of something wider and will help people to engage with some of those who serve in various capacities across Dorset and Wiltshire.

    Traidcraft BIG BREW 2017

    Holy Trinity Church
    Saturday 3rd March 2017
    From 10.00 – 3.00

    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.

    FINAL SERVICE OF THANKSGIVING AT ST NICHOLAS CHURCH - 4TH MARCH 2018

    Last November the Trustees and PCC unanimously voted to start the process to close St Nicholas church and to sell the site.
    It had become impossible to maintain two buildings where both need so much work on them. It was decided to close St Nicholas and to concentrate the church’s future mission at Holy Trinity in Weymouth where the long term vision will be to offer new facilities and mission opportunities as we discover Gods kingdom in a changing world.

    To this end the sale of the site and land at St Nicholas will help us generate funds in which a team of people will work to hopefully gain match funding to repair, and reorder in exciting and imaginative ways Holy Trinity church, Weymouth making what we hope will be a hub for all manner of outreach opportunities as we engage actively in our parish and the community of Weymouth.

    However we want to celebrate all that St Nicholas church has been over 54 years as a church and a community hall.  To this end everyone is warmly invited to the final Eucharist on Sunday 4th March. There will be no 10am service at Holy Trinity on this Sunday.

    At the end of the service there will be light refreshments and a display of photographs depicting the history of how St Nicholas church evolved and changed over the years.

    Stainer’s Crucifixion

    A performance of The Crucifixion: a meditation on the Sacred Passion of the Holy Redeemer is an oratorio composed by John Stainer in 1887. It is scored for a Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass choir and organ, and features solos for bass and tenor.

Vicar’s letter for February 2018

“Dear Friends At the beginning of February we celebrate CANDLEMASS or the feast of the Presentation of Christ in the Temple as described by Luke in his Gospel chapter 2:22-40. This will fairly swiftly be followed by the beginning of Lent and ASH WEDNESDAY on the 14th February. ”

But it can be exciting too. The Church in every generation and in every era of its life has always had challenges to face because of the changing circumstances in which she finds herself. Our present age is no different.
