Arrangements During New Lockdown Measures
Following the government's introduction of new lockdown measures from November 5th we regret that all Liturgies after that date have had to be cancelled.
Our Archdiocese has asked its clergy to serve a final pre-lockdown Liturgy on November 4th to allow reception of the Holy Mysteries before public services are no longer allowed. Although we will still only be able to have a congregation of 20, we are complying with this directive, and will serve the Divine Liturgy at 6:00 p.m. on that day. We know that we will be unable to find a place for everyone who would wish to attend, and so we respectfully ask those who have recently received Holy Communion to allow others to apply for places. For those who are able to fast before Communion the practice in our Parishes is to observe a fast of 6 hours before evening Liturgies.
During the lockdown period the church will be open every Sunday between 10:30 and 12:30 for private prayer (there is no need to book in advance for this), and we will resume public services as soon as this is permitted. Please watch the Parish websites for further announcements.
Annual General Meeting – Holy Trinity Parish
Dear Holy Trinity Community,
As you may know our Annual General Meeting takes place each year between Easter and Pentecost. The extraordinary circumstances of this year meant that the Parish Council delayed holding the AGM in the hope that we would be able to meet together later in the year. Sadly, we now know that it is going to be a long time before we are able to meet together in the way we used to do, and with no clear end to the situation the Council has seen no alternative to moving the AGM to an online platform.
Joining our Community
Greek Orthodox Community of the Holy Trinity is funded entirely by its members and their efforts through fundraising events. The Community pays the salary of our Priest, does charitable works and, together with the Orthodox Parish of the Annunciation pays for the upkeep of the church.
If you can, please consider helping the Community by becoming a member or making a donation (or both!).
The cost of becoming a member is £20 per year or £10 per year for the unwaged.
You can also donate directly towards the upkeep of our church, through donating into our joint parishes account- please contact our joint parishes treasurer- Bede Gerrard
Needless to say, we will only use your email address for sending you information about news and events, and will not pass your email address to any third parties.
Mailing List Subscription Problems
Unfortunately some email requests to be added to the mailing list have been lost. If you have been trying to add yourself to the mailing list and have not received any emails, please try again using the updated links to the maillist.
This was totally my fault - when I updated the address to reduce spam, I missed one of the links on the site. My apologies to anyone inconvenienced.
