Children and Families within the Orton Benefice

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. We would be
grateful for your help with clearing away the toys after the service. There is a toilet and
​baby-changing station through the door opposite to the entrance should 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 session in the Trinity Room (within church). We follow the LightLive Bible-based resources from Scripture Union for our sessions. 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. The Trinity Room is adjacent to church, and we hope that children will quickly feel that they are happy to come by themselves, knowing that their carers are close-by in the main church next door. ​All our Sunday Club leaders are DBS checked, in line with Diocesan safeguarding policies.

Across the Orton Benefice (Holy Trinity and St Mary's Orton Waterville), there are three Sundays a month when families have the opportunity of worshipping together - 1st, 3rd and 4th (Refresh). These services are child-friendly, and are shorter and less formal than our other Sunday services. ​ 

What we have been up to recently... (click to go to our Facebook Page)...


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 (see below). ​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.
