Sociable Strollers

The Strollers became The Striders for the day when we supported the Ride and Stride Day on 9th September. We visited four churches on Portland: All Saints, Easton; Easton Methodist; St George’s and St Andrew’s (the “Avalanche” church) – though Easton Methodist was not strictly on the “approved list” – and were warmly welcomed in each one. We had guided tours of all the churches and a much-appreciated coffee stop in the Methodist church. All four churches amply repaid the time taken to visit them and I think we all found things to enjoy that we had not spotted in previous visits.

Speaking for myself, the Methodist church was an undiscovered gem; I had never been inside and I urge you to pay it a visit if you have not already done so: it is a real delight.  It contains a wonderful frieze of The Last Supper, carved from a single piece of Portland stone, and a delightful statue of the Madonna and Child carved out of stone by one of the inmates of the Verne in gratitude for the kindness shown to him by the church congregation.  Avalanche church contains a beautiful window designed and installed by Jon Callan, who is an ex-Diocesan glazier who still looks after our own windows at Holy Trinity. 

Our circuit ended with a lunch at The George, on Reforme, where we were delighted to be joined by one of our ex-churchwardens, Josie Butcher, who is currently the churchwarden at All Saints, Easton.

Our next walk will be the last for this season and will be on October 14th, starting from the Brewers Arms in Martinstown.  See “Whats On” for further details (including our Christmas lunch on Saturday 2nd December 2017 at the Nothe Gardens Cafe) as they become 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.

    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.
