Welcome to Holy Trinity Church,Rothwell, near Kettering, in Northamptonshire.
THE BISHOP’S BIG WEEKEND
At last the time has come and we welcome Bishop John, the Bishop of Brixworth, to our Tresham Benefice for our Mission Weekend (May 10th to May 13th) as we celebrate the Ascension of Jesus and look forward to Pentecost.
A wide variety of worship and events takes place from the Thursday evening to the Sunday afternoon. Come and see! All are invited – and are encouraged to attend not only what is planned in Rothwell but what is on offer in Pipewell, Rushton, Thorpe Malsor and Loddington. Do make space in your diaries!
Let’s bring our parishes together and make it truly a ‘Big Weekend’! And let’s invite friends, neighbours, colleagues, school-mates to come along. There will be posters, programmes and other publicity, but as we know people respond best to a personal invitation: ‘Come with me.’
This initiative across our five churches coincides with ‘Thy Kingdom come’, a special time of prayer, commended by the Archbishops of Canterbury & York, when we ask for the inspiration of the Holy Spirit that God may use us to tell our own faith stories and to encourage others to get to know, in their deepest hearts, that they belong to Him. Its our joy to share that following Jesus is the best possible thing we can do with our lives! We want everyone to hear his call, and to have the opportunity to respond, and to begin the journey of faith.
In the run up to Easter I enjoyed watching on TV the three programmes describing a very mixed group of ‘pilgrims’ sharing a long and tough walk to the great pilgrimage destination, Santiago de Compostella. Some already had a faith, others did not, but all were challenged and shared personal discoveries and life stories. The experience changed them in many different ways.
May we be blessed as we journey with Bishop John through our communities this month.
May 6th we have a special service for Godparents
On May 13th we have Confirmation Service
as part of our Mission weekend.
Latest - Bone Crypt will be closed on Sunday afternoons May 6th & May 13th 2018
WEEKDAY MORNING PRAYER
On weekdays John and Ruth would love members of the congregation to join them for Morning Prayer at 9 am in the Lady Chapel. The service lasts 30 minutes and the days it is taking place are indicated in the weekly Pew News. Please ask if you need to know the code for the side door.
Our new group for children from 3 years upwards meets on the second Sunday of the month. Gather in church at 10.45 am. The aim of the Trinity Discoverers is to find out about Jesus through crafts, songs and activities. Come and enjoy!
