Dear Friends,UPDATE: Jan 2021 CORONA VIRUS - COVID19
As many of you will have anticipated, Holy Trinity Wentworth like many other churches, have taken the decision to close the church for public worship during this new lockdown period. The safety of the congregation and the wider community must be at the forefront of our minds, particularly considering the virulence of the new strain. We will review this regularly in line with government guidance. Please follow us on Facebook for further updates and virtual services.
Update on work in the west churchyard
Here’s a short update on work being carried out to the headstones in the older part of our west churchyard. We need your help! Visit https://youtu.be/6BPUuov7GRo to watch.
Welcome to Wentworth Church! We hope this site will encourage you to be a real visitor as well as a virtual one.
A church is primarily a group of people who gather together to worship God. The name is naturally transferred to the building used for that purpose; it often being a very fine piece of architecture (as Holy Trinity is) which attracts visitors for that reason too. Wentworth Church is available for all these purposes and others – Sunday worship, private prayer, tourism, and for marriages, to name but four. Please read on to find out more.
The building is normally open daily in daylight hours, there is no charge to enter but donations to support the maintenance and running costs of the church are always welcomed.
Wentworth is a small village with a population of about 1000, but the regular worshipping community (the congregation) is rather larger than might be expected. Quite a lot of people from outside the area come to the church. One reason is that we still use the traditional form of words (the 1662 Prayer Book) for most of our services and some prefer this to more modern prayers. But it is also because the congregation is friendly and welcoming, we have a Sunday School for children and a high standard of music; even the Vicar tries to make what he says interesting!
We are pleased when visitors come in to view the building and its Fitzwilliam connections; do put your names in the visitors book. We welcome many couples, not all of them young, for their wedding. Local families bring their babies to be baptised. Above all, though, we exist to make the love of God real, to help people to know Jesus better, and to help them to pray.
Do put your toe in the water and try coming to church (the main service at 10.45 is by far the best). And if you find it means something to you and you want to know more then there are regular discussion groups designed to facilitate learning. Just have a word with the Vicar.
