Youth Ministry at Holy Trinity
We value our young people and maintain an active youth ministry through our Sunday school for pre-school and primary age children (HT Kidz) and the Youth Fellowship for P7 upwards.
We have a creche room next to the hall with toys, books and games which parents of
pre-school children can use on a DIY basis. There is also a children's space at the back of the church with books and quiet toys which all are welcome to use.
HTKidz is for mainly for primary school age children and meets at 10.30 a.m. in the
church hall during the normal Sunday morning Eucharist service. We use a variety of
resources, and in recent times have been using the ‘Friends and Heroes’ DVD
series, with animated Bible stories. We learn through games, crafts, drama,
storytelling and music. The children join the adults in the church just before
communion, and get an opportunity to tell the congregation what they have learned in their time together.
We run occasional seasonal "messy church" sessions on Saturdays.

The Youth Fellowship is for young people of 11 and above and meets fortnightly on a
Saturday evening from 7 – 8.45 p.m. It is a very relaxed and casual group which is
open to all, whether they have a Christian background or not. We have a range of
activities including badminton, table tennis, pool, table football and group games.
When daylight and weather permits, we go out to the local park for rugby, football or
other outdoor games. The evening is rounded off with 15-30 minutes of teaching and
discussion about the Christian faith, usually using DVD material. We aim to make
faith and the Bible relevant to the young people’s everyday lives.
All Age Services
On the 3rd Sunday of the month, the 10.30 p.m. service in the church takes the form
of All Age Worship, where the children and young people join with the adults for a
slightly shorter and more relaxed service. Music is led by the Music group, with a
greater emphasis on contemporary song. The children often help out with readings or
prayers, or join with the Music Group to help with singing, percussion or other
instruments. Occasionally we have special All Age services such as the ever popular
Children of all ages and denominations are very warmly welcomed at Holy Trinity and we hope that these pages will encourage you to bring them along. If you are interested in your child being baptised, please contact the Rector and see the 'Baptisms and Weddings' page on this website.
The Youth Ministry is "staffed" by a team of volunteers. To find out more about the people who will work with your young people, please follow this link.
