Installation of St Nicholas Altar in Holy Trinity Church

Members of the congregation will have noticed that the beautiful Portland stone altar that stood for many years at St Nicholas church, now closed, has been installed at Holy Trinity church. The PCC decided that it would be a wonderful gesture of our two churches coming together after many years and a symbol that we shall always be the parish of Holy Trinity with St Nicholas. The simplicity and beauty of the stone sits beautifully in place and the inscription engraved on the front says Holy, Holy, Holy. We are so pleased at receiving so many positive comments.

From the earliest days of the Church, the altar has been at the centre of Christian acts of thanksgiving. The altar reflects the incomparable beauty of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ, who offered the perfect sacrifice for our salvation on the Altar of the Cross. The altar is made of Portland stone to remind us of Jesus, established by His Heavenly Father as Eternal High Priest. Let us pray that this festive table to which the guests of Christ hasten with joy… a place of intimate communion with Him who feeds us with His body and blood that we might be filled with His Spirit to grow in love.

The altar is in place through the granting of an Archdeacon’s licence, which, if all agree, in fifteen months’ time can be left permanently in place by the granting of a faculty from the Diocese.

    The Diocese of Salisbury has been declared the first Eco Diocese. In a first for the Church of England, the Diocese of Salisbury has been granted Eco Diocese Status.

    Andy Atkins, CEO of A Rocha UK the Christian based environmental charity which runs the green award scheme said: “Salisbury is the first diocese to be awarded Eco Diocese status and it's our very great pleasure to do so. When we launched Eco Church in 2016 we had high hopes and expectations. To have got this far so quickly is humbling, exciting and such a huge encouragement that so many churches in a diocese are working together to care for God's earth should be an encouragement to us all.”
