About Us

Thank you for visiting our entry and we hope you find what you are looking for but if not please do contact us. We do of course welcome both newcomers and occassional vistors as well as those who may want to find out more about our way of worship.

Holy Trinity is the Parish Church for this part of Ilkeston and is here to serve the people of the parish as well as the many who come to worship here from further afield. We are a parish in the Diocese of Derby and under the episcopal oversight of the Bishop of Ebbsfleet. We are firmly within the Catholic tradition, based around the celebration of the Eucharist, offering a welcome to all, mutually respectful of all integrities, whilst maintaining and holding fast to our tradition. We are fully supportive of the Five Guiding Principles as the means of mutual flourishing within the Church of England. Holy Trinity is a large Victorian building erected in the 1880s when this was a thriving industrial area dominated by coal mining and the textile industry.

We are a friendly congregation that maintains a traditional style of catholic worship and are affiliated to The Society (of St Wilfrid and St Hilda).  There is the Parish Mass every Sunday with two  Masses during the week. We have close ties with St Laurence's church in Long Eaton.

Priest-in-Charge ( also the Vicar at St Laurence's Long Eaton):   Father David Lawrence-March
