HTF Online

Our wesbite is maintained by a merry band of volunteers and is (hopefully) a useful resource for information, times and dates, contacts and that sort of thing. It is however, completely reliant on us knowing what’s going on, so if you’re involved in something that you think isn’t covered well (at all) on the site, let us know.

In fact, if you’re really enthusuastic (and reasonably technically able) there’s scope for you to contribute to the site yourself, so that you can keep your own articles and information up to date.

Get in touch with the Website Administrator for more information.

Trinity Crew

Our children are a very important part of our church family and we want them to feel valued and involved.
Trinity Crew is the name given to our children’s activities on Sunday mornings during the 10.45 service. The children start the morning by going into church with their parents, then leaving after a short while with the Trinity Crew leaders to pursue their activities in the adjoining hall. Creche age children may need a parent to stay with them. The children are usually taken back into church shortly before the service ends, and may go to the front to share what they have been doing.
Trinity Crew is split into the following age groups:
Birth to age 3 Creche
Reception to year 4

From time to time we also have outings, picnics and parties etc.

The Bridge café

Bridge 006 compThe Bridge is a community café run by volunteers from several churches. We aim to provide a bridge between Christians and the local community.

Simple cheap food is offered, and it provides somewhere for locals to call in for a chat. Welfare benefit advice is also provided on two mornings a week.

On Tuesdays between 11am – 1pm, “Elim Connect” run a drop-in session for the homeless and the YMCA provide advice for over 25’s at the same time.

The Bridge Cafe is located at the junction of Trinity Street and Selwood Road. As well as using Fairtrade ingredients, the café sells Traidcraft Fairtrade coffee, tea, sugar etc.

The Bridge Cafe is currently open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 11am – 4pm.
Tel: 01373 469944

Small Groups

Small Groups are the way we learn about God’s word together in an informal environment. They work well, because unlike Sunday morning at Church, you can shout out if you disagree and unlike reading the Bible on our own, if something doesn’t make sense, we can bounce ideas off each other.

All small groups are a little different, but if you’re not currently in a Small Group we really encourage you to join one.If you’d like to find a group, please contact the Church Office.

Prayer Ministry

Prayer ministry at HTF is the foundation of all the other ministries, and is high on our list of priorities.

Proverbs 29:18 says ‘where there is no vision the people perish.’ This can be applied to churches, where there is no vision for prayer there can be no spiritual growth. At Holy Trinity our prayer ministry is varied & active.

There is the opportunity to meet for a short time of prayer before each Sunday morning service. After the service there are people in the Side Chapel available to pray for individuals. There is a prayer meeting on the first Sunday evening of the month, and a prayer chain that is well used for immediate prayer situations. There are prayer triplets meeting on a regular basis. There is also the option of days at Quiet Gardens, days of fellowship & teaching and evening prayer pilgrimages around Wells Cathedral. Recently a new ‘text a prayer’ service launched and can be used by texting your request to 07973 448 354.

Every quarter we organise longer periods of prayer focusing on different situations & needs, with interactive, visual, varied & informative prayer stations, with areas for quiet meditation & the occasional guided meditation.
