Hymns We Love is a series of short talks based around well-loved, traditional hymns and is a great way to explore the Christian faith.

It’s an opportunity to sing and enjoy the beautiful lyrics, whilst exploring the meaning of the words.

You can listen to the series here, or call the Daily Hope free phone line – selecting option 1 – where a new hymn is explored each day.

Connections is our Seniors group meeting at Holy Trinity and at two residential homes.

If you require assistance getting to Connections or have any queries, please contact our Pastoral Care and Seniors Administrator Julia Howells.


Connections, for Seniors, meets on Tuesday mornings 10.00am to 11.30am in the church and is a safe and welcoming place to meet over coffee and cakes. The programme alternates between Connections and Connections Coffee Stop.

Connections has a constantly changing range of activities that include everything from mini hand massages to craft activities and games as well as special interest tables put together by local guests.

Connections Coffee Stop

Connections Coffee Stop is simply a time for friendship and conversation and meets on alternate Tuesday mornings in the church foyer.

The Hymns We Love series of talks is included once a month at Coffee Stop. We enjoy a well-loved hymn, a short talk and this is followed by an opportunity to talk about it in small groups over coffee.
