Holy Trinity

Holy Trinity is in the conservation area of Woodgreen, next to a children’s play area and close to the pub. The interior of the church is of simple design and has 100 comfortable chairs making it a useful flexible space.

Following an inspection which found the floor in the nave to be failing, a major fund raising campaign was formally launched in April 2013. Events were well supported by the whole congregation, our friends and our neighbours.  Money was given to us from many different sources and we had a really good time. We also became more aware of the goodwill of our neighbours and are keen to nurture this in the future.

Work on the new floor began in August 2014 and was completed by November of the same year.  As part of the project the sound system and lighting will also be renewed.  Our refreshed building has become a reality thus enabling us to work more effectively on our mission. We are open to fresh ideas.

Our services are supported by a talented choir, and we have a wide range of services, including a traditional Nine Lessons and Carols in the week before Christmas and a quiet and medative "Tenebrae service" on the evening of Good Friday.  The Easter garden is now arranged in the porch so that it can be more easily seen and our Christmas tree is positioned outside so that it is a sign to the whole community of our active presence.

Many baptisms, weddings and funerals take place in Holy Trinity church, and everyone is welcome at all of our services.

Witney Wonderland

We have teamed up with a local charity, Joss Searchlight and a number of generous sponsors to host the first Witney Wonderland Festival in the church. Expect to find St Mary's full of christmas trees, each individually decorated to reflect what Christmas means to different parts of our community. There will also be a fantastic Christmas scene to delight children of all ages.

As we look forward to celebrating the birth of Jesus at Christmas, our Carol services will be extra special this year; we'll be hosting a number of local schools as well as the Mayoress's Carol service on December 14th and the service of lessons and carols on Christmas Eve. There'll also be a number of special events throughout December, including concerts, bands, sing a long film nights, community vocal and dance groups and even a special visit from Santa.

Raise the roof

Severe winter frosts have destroyed the limestone slates on St Mary’s Roof. We need to replace them before winter sets in. Local Witney people have already sponsored 2,200 slates. Only 1,800 slates to go!!

Please Sponsor a Slate for £10. Your civic landmark church needs you!

Our stewardship enables us to fulfil God's call and share in God's mission

The Church is the new creation, it is life and joy, it is the sacramental fellowship in which we share the ultimate purpose of God, made real for us now in our hearing the Word and sharing the Sacrament.
Rowan Williams
