Worship at Holy Trinity is definitely modern Catholic. A powerpoint projector (discretely placed) makes involvement easy for all worshippers. The music is very varied, combining the English Hymnal with music from many other sources. Catholic ceremonial and doctrine is combined with informality and strong participation by all concerned.
Holy Trinity Church is in the care of the Bishop of Ebbsfleet, although this does not mean that supporters of women priests are excluded. Like most churches in the Potteries, the congregation is drawn from within the parish and beyond.
The building is not easy to find. Situated above Port Vale Football Club and adjacent to the Vale Cafe, it is set back from the main road. The original church was nearer the town centre, the present building being the former daughter church. The lych gate is the most obvious structure - and a noticeboard that is often mistaken for a pub sign. The interior of the church is beautifully furnished and decorated. (The sacrament house, organ case, rood, Majestas, tester, and various shrines all show the influence of George Frederick Bodley and Sir Ninian Comper.) It is a centre of prayer and fellowship - and is easily available for use by the casual visitor. The main (new) porch is open during the daytime and the vicarage is adjacent to the site.
