"Thrust out a little from the land," (Luke 5:3) and founded upon a rock, may it ever point the way to Heaven and allure men and attract them, win them and fit them and train them for the Temple that is not made with hands." -- Annie Clarkson, 1896.

  • Advent Season

    What is Advent?

    Advent marks the start of the Church calendar and begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas, concluding the day before Christmas itself.  It is a season of preparation and expectation for the coming celebration of Christ's nativity and, at the same time, for his final coming 'in power and glory'.

    At Trinity we celebrate with various special events in addition to the weekly lighting of the advent candle which takes place at the beginning of each Sunday service during the Advent Season. In the spirit of anticipation and expectation, watch this space for information about our all-age Advent activites and our adult Advent bible studies.

Join us in the Parish Hall - come for a few minutes to make your wreath, or come for the whole time.  Bring a dish to share and we'll see you there!
