Holy Trinity

Welcome to your parish church in Holtby!

We have a Sunday service in the church, usually twice a month. On the 2nd Sunday of the month this is a morning service of Holy Communion at 9.00am. On the 4th Sunday we usually celebrate Evensong.

On the mornings of the 4th and 5th Sundays we join together as a Benefice to worship in one of the four Benefice churches.

We also have a live service of Compline (night prayer) every Wednesday at 7.00pm over Zoom. You can either download the free Zoom app or just join us through your web browser at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86707839332. The Meeting ID is 867 0783 9332.
