World Aids Day - 2017

Holy Trinity church was open on Friday 1st December from 12noon until 2pm for prayer and reflection to remember all who have died over the years from AIDS and all who continue to live throughout the world from HIV and Aids. We pray for all who work to find a permanent cure for this world wide pandemic. The paschal candle was lit throughout the time of reflection in church as a sign of hope for those whose lives have been lost and in hope for a future cure.

Ride and Stride Result 2017

Following this year’s Ride and Stride event our parish organiser, Anthony de Chazal, has received a letter from the Treasurer of Dorset Historic Churches Trust enclosing a cheque for £335, this being 50% of the funds raised by participants from Holy Trinity. The money raised by Anthony, who cycled to a large number of Dorset churches, and members of the Sociable Strollers, who visited four churches on Portland, was more than double that raised last year.

    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

    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.
