Explore More about Faith
Find out more about us, our story, our faith and our buildings.
Recent years decades have seen a growth in different ways of doing and being church.
In 2019 we embarked on a new season of life together: growing faith, proclaiming hope, living the love of Jesus. We’d love you to be part of writing the next chapters of that story together.
Like any good invitation, we need to know what we’re being invited to. This invitation to us is about forgiveness from the past, new life in the present, and an amazing hope for the future.
There are lots of different ways of finding out more. One of the best ways is to come and meet other people at Church who have heard and responded to this invitation from God – we’d love to tell you more about the difference God has made, and is making, in our lives. Or come and take part in an Alpha Course, a ten week practical introduction to the Christian faith.
Why not make a start right now? You could begin with finding out more about Jesus from the pages of the Bible, starting with Luke’s gospel. Or you can watch “The Hope“, an 80 minute film of the story of God’s promise for all people as revealed in the Bible.
The present Holy Trinity Church is a fine Grade II listed Victorian building, with nationally famous William Morris and Burne-Jones designed stained glass windows, links to author Mary Webb and a fine peal of bells. The building is regularly used for services and other events, but visitors are welcome to look around during office hours when the building is not in use. We can also arrange tours for groups by appointment – contact us for details. You can also download a booklet with detailed descriptions of the Windows at Holy Trinity, and History of the Bells at Holy Trinity Church Meole Brace
The renowned local author Mary Webb was a regular worshipper at Holy Trinity and also married at the church. The church is featured in the local Mary Webb walking trail. And for schools the church is a rich resource for study across the curriculum, but particularly for the RE, PSHE and History curricula. We welcome school visits; please contact us for details.
We have a happy and sociable band of ringers of mixed experience, aged 14 to 70+, who ring our eight fantastic bells every Sunday morning from 10:15 to 1045, and also for weddings and other events of local or national significance. We practise every Thursday evening at 7:30. It is great fun and we hope our ‘audience’ across Meole Brace gets as much satisfaction from the sound as the ringers do from the exercise. We are all agreed about one thing: the bells of Holy Trinity Meole Brace are being rung regularly to affirm the presence of God’s love in our community and to call people to worship. To find out more speak to Michael Carding or Andy Digby who can be contacted via the Church Office.
