A friendly parish church in the heart of Morecambe.

Our worship styles range from contemporary to traditional, from informal all-age services to choral evensong and the Book of Common Prayer. 

We are an active community with a congregation of about 100 adults and 30 children at 10am, along with an active Junior Church, Youth Group, choir, bell-ringers, men's group, Bible Study, Lent course and much more. We also have very strong links with Poulton-le-Sands C of E Primary School next door.

If Sunday worship is difficult, we have a midweek communion service on Thursdays at 11.30am.

If you have small children, why not come along to Messy Church - once a month on Friday afternoons?. 

Holy Trinity is also a very popular venue for weddings and baptisms.
