Welcome to the website for Holmfirth Parish Church.
Holy Trinity Church, Holmfirth, West Yorkshire
- part of the Upper Holme Valley Team Ministry
You will find Holy Trinity Church, Holmfirth right in the middle of this busy market town in West Yorkshire, nestled among shops, homes, businesses and the stunning Pennine landscape.
Holy Trinity is a welcoming community of adults and children, who worship and enjoy activities in a building which has been here since the end of the eighteenth century.
From spring to late summer every year we open our doors to hundreds of visitors who stop off at the church to say a prayer, light a candle, see the building, and browse the pews full of secondhand books. Each year, Holy Trinity takes part in the Holmfirth Festival of Folk, Holmfirth Arts Festival and other community events, as well as putting on its own exhibitions and concerts.
Team Vicar, the Reverend Keith Griffin, says, ‘Welcome to our website. We have information here about church activities, events and services and the history of Holy Trinity. We hope you’ll find what you’re looking for here. Feel free to leave us a message or get in touch if you have a question.’
What is going on?????
Our church has all sorts going on within its walls for both young and old and those in between.
For the Mums and Babies there is the Monday morning group in the Gallery Room—this is a very busy and lively 2 hours.
For the 5 to 7 year olds we have the Rainbow Guides meeting on a Monday early evening followed by the 14 to 18+ Ranger Guides or 14 to 18 Young Leaders Group. Wednesday evening we welcome the 7 to 10 year old Brownie Guides. These 5 activities bring around 90 children and their parents into our church building.
There is then Cafe 100 which meets on three occasions during the week giving social activities for around 15 teenagers at each meeting.
We then move on to our directly church supported groups - the Childrens' Sunday Club, Choir, Music Group, Senior Moments, Mothers' Union and its Lunch Group, Prayer Group, Bible Study Group, Open Conversation Group, Fund Raising Group, Flower Team, Home Visiting Ladies
With all this activity no one can say our church in Holmfirth is not alive. We are BUZZING and enthusiastic and welcome all new members and visitors into our fold.
