Pilgrimage to St Aldhelm’s Chapel

Bishop Karen will be leading a pilgrimage to St Aldhelm's Chapel, Worth Matravers on Thursday 25 May - the feast day of St Aldhelm.

Bishop Karen said, “ The pilgrimage is open to everyone, whatever their religious views. Many people, whether or not they are churchgoers, visit places of spiritual interest and sometimes discover a little piece of heaven. 

St Aldhelm was the first Bishop of Sherborne, so I am his direct successor – I was made a bishop 1311 years after he was.  Tiny St Aldhelm’s is a very special place, perched on top of high cliffs, and accessible only on foot. It’s a thin place where it’s easy to feel the gap between heaven and earth narrowing.  I am keen to promote pilgrimage in Dorset. The county’s many chapels, shrines and holy wells allow people to touch the transcendent right here on our own doorstep.”

Pilgrims should assemble before 10.30 am at the Renscombe Farm car park (postcode BH19 3LL). A rugged pathway leads for 1½ miles/2.5 km to St Aldhelm’s Chapel (capacity around 90). There will be a short act of worship at the chapel.  Please bring a picnic – we’ll share one on the cliffs if the weather permits, and at St Nicholas’ in Worth Matravers if the weather is typically English!

Dogs welcome on the walk and in chapel.  Vehicle access is not permitted but should mobility be a concern a special ‘all terrain’ coach will be available.

    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.

    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.
