Lunch Club

For Older People In The Local Community

Once a month on a Saturday we serve some of the older members of the parish a lovely hot home-cooked lunch.  If you’d like to join in and be part of it – or if you know someone who would – then give Oliver or Jessica Harrison a call on 01827 260 560.  Forthcoming dates are: Saturdays 13th December, 10th January, 14th February, 14th March and 11th April – all from 12.00 noon to 2.00pm at Holy Trinity Church.  There’s a small (£5) charge to cover costs; lifts to and from church can be arranged. 

Domestic Abuse Survivors' Group

"Sparkles" is a creative support group for women survivors of domestic abuse -- past or present. Sessions are local, free and confidential and involve crafting, making jewellery etc. There's no pressure to participate in the activities nor to talk about your experiences. Do not reply here or message me but contact Sarah on 07517601094 or email sarah@cohort4.org.uk



PRAYERS - Each Sunday morning before and after the normal service there is a chance to join in a small prayer group. Before the service in the office (from 9.30am) and after the service at the front of church by the altar.


Little Stars Toddlers Group every Thursday morning in term time 10am-12noon.  Visit our facebook group page here: https://www.facebook.com/holytrinitytamworthtoddlers?ref=ts&fref=ts


St Editha's Book & Fair Trade Shop - This is now open 9:30 to 3:30 Monday to Saturday, with a range of Bibles, Christian books, greetings cards, Fair Trade foods, gifts and crafts. There are refreshments on sale during those times - only 50p for a hot drink, and various cakes, biscuits etc. We can generally get special order books and other items. We want it to become an even greater resource for the area and would encourage you to use it well. One of the key things is that it allows the Church to be open through the week for people to drop in for prayer, to talk to someone or to find information. If anyone would be able to help out for a half day a week, we are looking for volunteers!! Please contact Jessica Harrison for further details
