As the only church in the valley, everyone is welcome at Holy Trinity whether they are of a different tradition or none at all. In holiday times services are designed to be family friendly. There is a table at the back for children to do various related activities if they wish to. Stockinged feet are totally acceptable, and there are mats for dogs. It is our privilege to extend hospitality to our many visitors both regular and occasional. In Summer an extra informal service is held on Sunday evenings which does not conflict with a day's walking or sight-seeing.

Would-be or experienced Bellringers are invited to join the regular band, either for the Wednesday evening practice or at 10am before the Sunday service.

The building itself is well worth a visit in its own right. It is open between 9am and 5pm daily. Please come in at any time to pray, or simply to savour the atmosphere of a typical country lakeland church. Don't miss the St Francis window designed by a local craftsman, or the renowned Millennium Tapestry. Outside are three notable graves:- of George Macaulay Trevelyan, of Wiiliam Irwin, founder of the Lakeland Fiddlers', and of a near relative of Wordsworth's which bears an epitaph by him. For further details there are guidebooks available in the back of the church.

Morning worship
(NB This service is not held on Sunday 19th January, as we encourage all to attend the Prayer for Christian Unity service at St Mary's Ambleside.) This service is designed to appeal to a wide variety of people of all denominational backgrounds. We follow Lectionary readings, and aim to breathe new life into the traditional forms. Communion is served on the second and fourth Sundays of each month (as well as at Christmas, Maundy Thursday and Easter) and open to all who follow Jesus. There is a space at the back with toys and suitable books where parents can take younger children. Walkers are most welcome - as are stockinged feet if they feel boots are dirty. We regularly have dogs in the congregation.
Sunday at 10:30 AM for 1 hour
Family Friendly Coffee Common Worship
Summer Praise
This is a more informal time of prayer and praise held at 8pm each Sunday during July and August. There is the opportunity to choose a song or hymn they would like. In 2014 we are looking at the lives of the Prophets and their encounter with God. The timing of this service often suits those who have been walking or involved in other activities during the day.
