Sharing the love of God
This simple message sums up the mission of the two church communities which make up the parish of Holy Trinity Bingley with St Wilfrid’s Gilstead in the Diocese of Leeds. Visitors to our churches will find a loving, caring and welcoming community.The worship of our parish is centred on the Eucharist. The main Sunday service at both Holy Trinity and St Wilfrid’s is a Sung Eucharist and there are midweek celebrations at Holy Trinity on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and at St Wilfrid’s on Wednesdays. The parish also offers a variety of Sunday evening worship, including Evensong and a monthly Taize service at Holy Trinity. We also offer a fortnightly Pub Church service in The Glen public house in Gilstead and various family and children orientated services. The parish celebrates all the major festivals of the Church, including full Holy Week and Easter ceremonies along with an Easter morning dawn service on Gilstead Moor. We hold carol and other special services at Advent, Christmas, Epiphany and Easter led by the Trinity Singers, a choir made up of members of our two churches and friends from other local choirs. The Trinity Singers also lead the singing on other special occasions.
