Holy Trinity is Opening for Services

Now the church is open regularly for worship the private prayer evenings have ceased.  We very much look forward to welcoming you back to public worship. 

Guidance is changing week by week, and this week’s news (10th August) is that face coverings are now mandatory in church. The worship leader can remove their mask when in the chancel, provided a suitable distance is maintained, as facial expression is essential to communication, and some people lip read, at least partially. That goes for readers and intercessors too. The congregation should only remove their masks to receive their Communion. If you’re wondering whether/when to return to church, we usually have about 30-35 on a Sunday, but the Wednesday service is much quieter – only 6 this week, so that’s perhaps less risky. For those of you participating from home, I do apologise for the loss of quality, especially in the sound. We are working on that, and experimenting with external microphones. I hope it will be improved this week.

What's On @ Holy Trinity

Icon Heading

Welcome to Holy Trinity Leverstock Green. We are a vibrant and warm church at the heart of village life; a church that is open to the whole community, and works in partnership with other village organisations to serve their needs; a church with prayer and worship as the bedrock, where individuals at all stages are encouraged to grow in their faith.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions our normal pattern of services and activities is in abeyance but during the pandemic you might be interested know.   Please come along and support the group. 

Like for many, the Covid-19 pandemic means this is a challenging time for Holy Trinity financially. With our church closed to worshipers and visitors, most of our income has fallen away.  We will be very grateful for your support.  Your giving not only allows us to keep our church flourishing and grow but we can also continue working to support our parishioners and the local community. If you would like to make a donation online please click the link below.

With grateful and prayerful thanks, Holy Trinity Parochial Church Council.
