(term time only)
Click here to visit St Mary's Church, Orton Waterville (our sister church).
8 am - Morning Service (1st & 3rd Sundays)
A quiet, meditative service with a brief sermon. For many
it is a place to find peace.
10.30 am - Holy Communion
A service for the whole family to enjoy. Refreshments
served at the end give an opportunity to meet socially.
There is Sunday Club provision for the children during
school term time on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Sundays.
The first Sunday of the month is an all-age service. The
fifth Sunday of the month is a joint service with St Mary's.
Holy Trinity Church is a warm, welcoming Christian community which strives to share God's love with the larger community. We are people of all ages, traditional families, people who are single, widowed, divorced, remarried, retired, and married.
1st Sunday of the month: Children remain in church for the All-age service
2nd & 4th Sundays: SPLASH/XStream sessions at Orton Hall Hotel
3rd Sunday: 'Mini Church' service in the Trinity Room for children old enough to come by themselves (though adults are welcome to come and settle them the first time they come). They will return to the main part of the church for the second half of the service.
For the Sunday Club sessions, our older children are walked across to Orton Hall Hotel where we have the use of two superb conference rooms. The children are accompanied by Sunday Club Leaders at all times and will be accompanied back to church after the service. Sunday Club sessions are packed with songs, stories and games, plenty of friendliness, and lots of fun! ... but if at any time your child expresses a wish to return to church, they will be brought back to you by a member of the Sunday Club Leadership Team. The children enjoy their session together in a double conference room, separating into age-appropriate groups for certain activities. All our Sunday Club leaders are DBS checked, in line with Diocesan safeguarding policies.
We aim to be a 'STRESS-FREE SUNDAY CLUB!' for all children and their parents, so feel free to come and see where your children are when Sunday Club is in the hotel, and either stay with them for the session or return to church for the main service once they are settled. The Trinity Room is unfortunately not large enough for lots of adults to stay for Mini Church, and given that it is adjacent to church, we hope that children will quickly feel that they are happy to come by themselves, knowing that their carers are only in the room next door.
Children are hugely welcome at Holy Trinity and there is plenty for them to join in with. If you are new to this church or visiting and you have children aged 4-12 with you, they are warmly invited to join in the fun of Sunday Club! Come and introduce them to us before the service and we will be delighted to team them up with a Leader and a 'Buddy' from amongst our regular children. Pre-school children with their carers are welcome to use the play area in church during any 10.30 service. We would be grateful for your help with clearing away the play area after the service. There is a toilet and baby-changing station through the door opposite to the entrance if you need them.
Children who are going to attend Sunday Club stay in church until after the first hymn, when Sunday Club Leaders accompany them to their sessions either in the rooms we use over at the hotel or in the 'Trinity Room' in church:

The Kings School admissions criteria for parents wishing to apply for a Church of England or Methodist Church place for their child will change for the academic year starting September 2018. This means it will affect parents applying for a place in September 2017 for the following year. For further details, please click through to the attached PDF - Kings School Admissions.pdf.
Services in the Coming Weeks:
Sunday 17th & Sunday 24th September: There will be no service in Church due to building work. We are invited to worship with
our sister Church St Mary's Orton Waterville. Their service begins at 9.15 am.
Sunday 10th September 1 pm and Saturday 30th September 10 am: Lots of help will be needed on these dates to pack up the Church in preparation for the building work and to unpack it and clean it ready for the Sunday service on 1st October. Please put these dates in your diary and come along and help. It’s too much of a job for two or three ladies of a certain age, particularly moving all the chairs.
Sunday 1st October: Holy Trinity is open for business once again! Service times are 8 am and 10.30 am.
Sunday 15th October 10 am St Botolph's School: We will be coming together with St Mary's for a joint Harvest Festival service at the primary school. The service will be followed by a bring and share lunch.
Sid will be joined in his ministry here in the Ortons by Reverend Imogen Falvey. Imogen will be licensed to the Orton Benefice on Wednesday 11th October at 7.30pm at St. Botolph's School. Archdeacon Hugh McCurdy will take this service and it would be great if you are able to join us.
In addition to Imogen joining us, we also welcome Jake Ellard, who is an Authorised Worship Minister (AWM). If the name sounds familiar, it might be because you know him from his time at St. Andrew's Alwalton where he was AWM and Churchwarden for many years. Jake will be licensed to the Orton Benefice at Deanery Synod by the Rural Deans on Monday 16th October - again, you will be welcome to come along to that service also, although the time and venue are still to be confirmed.
