Transforming Trinity, Transforming Lives UPDATE!

Transforming Trinity, Transforming Lives

For the last seven years, the people of Holy Trinity Church in Frome have been working with well-known Somerset architects Benjamin and Beauchamp to refurbish the interior of the church.  The aim of the project is to create a light, airy, properly heated flexible space, and also a much better auditorium with new seating throughout.  A new audio-visual system will improve speech and music quality, and there will be many other improvements to the church including new meeting and administrative space, and much improved entrance from Trinity Street.

 The design has been through various stages of development and public consultation leading to a submission for formal approval in December 2014 which has now been granted in full by the Chancellor of the Diocese of Bath and Wells.It is anticipated that the works on the interior of the church will begin on 1st July 2015 and last for approximately seven months during which the church, church hall and car park will be closed with Sunday morning services taking place at Oakfield Academy in Frome at the same times as usual.

A resource for Advent

St John’s Advent Book 2013
A series of readings covering the Advent and Christmas period, written by staff and students at St John’s College.  Every day we make hundreds of decisions, big and small, and face many different circumstances. In a rapidly changing, fast paced world, we can find ourselves rushing through life in constant pursuit of things that, once obtained, will be as obsolete as all those things we’ve sought before.
These daily reflections for the Christmas season seek to bring us to a place of recognising there is one truth we need to hold on to as we consider the road ahead:
Not one of us can know what our future may hold, but we know the one who holds the future.
As we spend time reflecting on lines from Hymns for Advent, Christmas and the New Year, join the St John’s College family in rediscovering the duty and joy of worshipping God in all times and in every circumstance.
