The Parochial Church Council (PCC) has, reluctantly, decided to close Holy Trinity church until further notice due to the potential for substantially increased numbers of Covid 19 cases in the community. The decision to close will be reviewed at the end of January 2021.

Funerals can continue to be held with numbers restricted to 30. All enquiries in regard to funeral services either in church, at a graveside in Holy Trinity churchyard or at a crematorium should be addressed to the churchwardens or other church officer.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”

With the retirement of Canon Lynda Barley, the church is currently in transition and being supported by local clergy. It is still open for enquiries regarding baptisms, weddings and funerals/memorial services.
Please direct all enquiries to info@holytrinitytresillian.org.uk or by phone to the churchwardens: 01872 520198 or 01872 263830.

The Gothic Revival styled church situated at Tresillian Bridge was first built as the Chapel of Ease in 1878, but has since been rebuilt and the current structure dates from 1904. The font, bells, statue of St Anthony and pulpit were all taken from the, by then, virtually abandoned church of St Cohan’s at nearby Merther that continued to be used for funerals until the mid 20th century.

There is a link here to the Church of England’s website A Church Near You listing some 16,000 churches. A Church Near You contains information about parish churches and the services and events that take place there, which newcomers and visitors to a particular location may find useful. You may also find information about specific facilities available to handle weddings, baptisms and funerals as well as general churchgoing.
