Many people from Longlevens and beyond turn to Holy Trinity Church for some reason or another. We have a core of people who attend church regularly, a number of other people who visit church regularly on their own , seeking a time of quiet, to sit and pray. Large numbers of people join in seasonal services: Christmas and Remembrance Sunday in particular.
Many families come to Holy Trinity for Christenings and we also support a large number of families with funerals. In addition, our Church Hall is well used for groups run by church members to support the church and other activities to enable and support community. I am also aware that many people, rightly, think of Holy Trinity as their church in Longlevens.
Although people turn to the church and what we have to offer, I suspect that many people do not realise that all residents of Longlevens over the age of 16 can be part of shaping the work and mission of Holy Trinity Church, by asking for their name to be entered on our Electoral Roll. There is no charge for this, but being registered on the roll entitles residents of this parish to be part of key decision-making including who should occupy key roles on our Board of Trustees.
We are a registered Charity, committed to enabling, not only the exploration of the Christian faith, but also to supporting charitable initiatives. We are committed to supporting the work of The Children’s Society which provides life-enabling support for many young people.
Like many churches and organisations, we are also committed to supporting the Food Bank. Looking to the wider world we support Traidcraft, a charity which runs life-changing development projects and campaigns to bring about trade justice around the world.
We are a church for everyone in Longlevens and we are committed to an outward-facing, life-enabling mission.
