1st Sunday of the month: Children remain in church for the All-age service
2nd & 4th Sundays: SPLASH/XStream sessions at Orton Hall Hotel

  • ​"SPLASH" 4-8 years
  • "XStream" 9-12 years

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.

Sundays

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.

OUR VISION

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.

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:​
