Just a little rather sad update on our Christmas Concerts
I'm sure that it is of no surprise that both the Escafeld and York Waits concerts have to be cancelled this year. I know that the Escafeld have been practicing remotely, the plan is for them to sing at Christmas outdoors, presumably around Sheffield.
I asked York Waites if they would like to pass on a message via our database.
The Parochial Church Council are delighted to announce the appointment of Mr Chris Viney DipSAA as Organist and Choir Master.
We are extremely fortunate to welcome Chris into our church family. Chris has many years of experience in church music and has given numerous diverse concerts and organ recitals.
We are confident that Chris will add to the rich musical heritage of Holy Trinity Wentworth and we give him a very warm welcome.
We’re reopening from Sunday 6th September at 10:45. You are very welcome to come; we look forward to seeing you wearing your face covering.
UPDATE: CORONA VIRUS - COVID19
As you may know, the Church of England have told us to stop holding public services; the Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close.
We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. and therefore we must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.
Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.
Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in this building.
In the light of this we have been having a think about what we can do to maintain our spiritual life together at this unprecedented time. To help with this, we have spoken to Rev John Armstrong, the Rector of Wombwell, he is happy for us to advertise a link to his website.
(i) Beginning on Thursday morning 19th March, 2020, he will live stream on YouTube a short morning Bible reading and prayer time. He is thinking of 9.30 am as a start time for this. He will do this every morning at the same time, except on his day off and on Sundays.
(ii) On Sundays at 10.00 am, he will livestream on Youtube a short service with prayers, music (hopefully) and a full length sermon.
To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips, inline with goverment advice.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
