Holy Trinity, Rothwell

A place for everyone

Revd Canon John Westwood

Welcome to Holy Trinity Church,Rothwell, near Kettering, in Northamptonshire.

All public worship is suspended, including Weddings, Baptisms and funerals, according to the guidance from the Archbishops of Canterbury & York.

Currently (very sadly),From Tuesday 24 March 2020,  funerals can only take place at the Crematorium or at the graveside.  Services in church are no longer allowed.

The Deanery Standing Committee has discussed holding the service for 'Thy Kingdom Come' online via Zoom. It will be held on Tuesday 26th May (moved from the original date of Wednesday) beginning at 7.30 p.m.

For those who do not have it, I used Zoom for the very first time today and found it straightforward to download and use the app.

You are asked to be ready to light a candle in your home (but pleased be advised to not use antibacterial  handgel immediately before the meeting begins!).

Thank you,
Gwyneth Mellors
