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.
Canon Lynda would like everyone in the village to know that they remain in her prayers, heart and thoughts in the coming days. During these challenging times there are some short Midday Prayers and a monthly Prayer Cycle available from the church to remember all at home, and those affected and working to combat the coronavirus. Please get in touch if you or your neighbours would like to use them.

The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close

We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.

Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.

Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in this building.

Our website contains details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study, and community life.

The vicar/churchwardens of this church can be
contacted in an emergency by telephoning: 01872 520198 OR 01872 263830 or emailing: info@holytrinitytresillian.org.uk

“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.”

To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.

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.
