Lockdown The church will not be open for
private prayer during the week, and only for
'communal worship' on Saturday evening and
Sunday morning. Government regulations
allow for churches to be open, but it has been decided to
limit drastically Holy trinity's opening to ensure the
safety and well-being of everyone. Please do take care
of yourselves and others, and abide by the new
regulations.


Service Times Although the weekly service
times have reverted to their earlier format,
please note that only the Saturday evening
and Sunday morning ones may be
attended. All the others (and Sunday 10.00am) will be
streamed. Please feel free to view through Facebook
(Holy Trinity Taunton) or A Church Near You. You don't
have to be 'signed up' to either!


Bells An anonymous benefactor has offered
to cover the costs of the restoration and
rehanging of Holy Trinity's peal of six
bells. This is an incredibly generous offer, and we are
most grateful. A faculty application is being made,
although this is at an extremely early stage.
Parish Office During lockdown the office will
not be staffed, but calls and emails will be
picked up. For a quicker response, please
contact Fr Julian directly (01823
337890/ [email protected]).


Crucifix We are most grateful to Julie Harland
who has given a very handsome wooden crucifix
in memory of her late mother, Kay. It has been
hung in the Lady Chapel behind the altar, and will
be dedicated in due course.


Appointment The PCC are delighted to say
that they have appointed Mr Stephen Price as
our organist/choir trainer. Stephen played
last Sunday at 10.00am and will be doing so
again this Sunday. We are very fortunate, and wish him
well in his ministry with us.


Prayer – everyone, everywhere! The
‘Everyday Faith’ team at diocesan office
produced very fine daily resources on
prayer. Simple, single page, daily helps are available
on our website, but if you’d like a hard copy, please let
Fr Julian know. They for the basis of our ‘Sharing
Together’ Zoom discussion on Thursday 28th.
