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.

    Holy Trinity Church Roof

    All the scaffolding is down and we can report that the roof is now, as far as we are aware, waterproof. This of course came with a huge cost but needed to be done. We are now applying for grants to see if we can cover more of the cost of £40.000 to pay for it. Last December we received £10,000 from the Muton Trust for which we are extremely grateful. Any kind donations thankfully received! We are about £12,000 short of our target.

“God doesn’t have a holiday!

Working through a desk groaning with paper on a glorious sunny summer morning, I just happened to wish out loud that I was on holiday. However, I was soon reminded by a parishioner of the wonderful truth that God doesn’t have holidays.
