Welcome to Holy Trinity Church Tresillian
COVID-19 DECEMBER 2021
Holy Trinity church is open for regular services but the church hall continues to be closed. The wearing of face masks in places of worship is now compulsory (unless you are exempt). Hand sanitizer will be available for use on entry to church and social distancing, as far as possible, will be undertaken. Singing in church is allowed.
Since the retirement of Canon Barley our parish is ‘in transition’ and has been supported by other members of the clergy and our Local Worship Leader in order to maintain services.
All enquiries in regard to funeral services, baptisms and weddings should be addressed to the churchwardens. Email: email@example.com or telephone 01872 520198, 01872 263830.
“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.”
The Gothic Revival styled church situated at Tresillian Bridge was first built as a 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.
