Holy Trinity Church during Covid19 [Updated 17 May 2020]

The spread of the Covid19 virus has meant that all meetings in the church building are suspended until further notice.

Sunday Services and Daily Prayer can be found on our Holy Trinity West Bromwich YouTube channel.

News can be found on our Holy Trinity West Bromwich Facebook Page.

At Holy Trinity Church we are called to care for each other in all seasons and to bless our neighbours.  We’re not sure what that means for now or what we will need to do, or can do. The path ahead is dark. We have just enough light for the next step.

There will be no group activities, no worship services, in church, from now until we are told it is safe to gather again. That doesn’t mean we stop being a church. God is living and active. We must pray that His word continues to spread faster than the virus so people find salvation in Christ before he returns to judge the world.

In his second letter to Timothy, the Apostle Paul wrote:

Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel, for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God’s word is not chained.

We might be “chained” in our homes but the word of God is unchained. You can always telephone people, or text bible verses. You can use Facebook messenger, or share videos and websites with your family, friends and neighbours. You can invite them to join us in an online church service or bible study.

Bible teaching and prayer

For worship and teaching we will stream a Sunday service from our church YouTube channel, you can join anytime from 10:30am.

Daily Prayer will also be on the YouTube channel from 7:30am, Monday to Thursday.

UPDATE (22/03/2020) Following the example of London Diocese, the church buildings will now NOT be open for individual prayer from Monday to Thursday morning. 

We will be able to pray together and hold small group meetings using a video meeting service called Zoom

Bible study is on Zoom on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7:30pm. Please text Neil on 07810544265 for an invitation.

Kids Klub and Trinity Tots are also running online.

Pastoral Counselling and Prayer

If you need pastoral counselling and prayer, please call or text Neil, our vicar, 07810 544265. A member of staff will be in touch to make arrangements with you for a phone call or Zoom meeting.

Weddings and Funerals

UPDATE (23/03/2020) The UK Government has banned weddings and baptisms for at least three weeks from today.

If you have been bereaved, please contact Neil on 07810 544265 or ask your funeral director to contact him. Updates on funeral arrangements are constantly changing and he will be able to give you the latest information.

Practical needs

You or your neighbours may have practical needs like shopping, collecting medication or even just having someone to speak to on the phone. We would like to link people together through church so that everyone is cared for and are working on a way we can do that.

There may be things God calls us to do which we can’t yet see.  If you have a need, please make contact. We can’t promise to be able to do everything, but we can pray and do what we can together as a church as we follow the commands of Jesus to love each other as he loved us.
