Holy Trinity: Time for Celebration

To celebrate its 150th anniversary the Church is having a week of celebrations culminating in the visit of the Rt. Rev. Patrick Harris, Bishop of Southwell, who will take morning service at 10.30am on Sunday 4th October.

The preceding evening a parish supper will be held in the hall of Thomas Helwys Baptist Church to which both past and present parishioners and members of clergy have been invited.

On Tuesday 29th September it is planned to hold a concert within Holy Trinity starting at 7.30 pm and all are welcome to attend. From Monday 28th September through to Sunday 4th October there will also be exhibitions, mounted by members of the congregation and by Lenton Local History Society, which will be on display inside the church itself.

These should be open each day from 10am to 4.30 pm and everyone is cordially invited to come along and view them.

Time For A Tea Towel

Back in 1989 when St. Mary‘s, Wollaton Park was celebrating its fiftieth anniversary Maureen Voisey designed a decorative tea towel to commemorate the event (see Lenton Times No.1 for more details).

This venture was extremely well received and so she has decided to repeat the idea for the 150th anniversary of Holy Trinity.

As is evident from our illustration, Holy Trinity, the old vicarage (now Unity House) along with past and present views of St. Anthony‘s (Lenton's previous parish church) will all be depicted.

The ancient font and rood screen from Holy Trinity and the Norman altar rail from St. Anthony's also feature in the design.

The tea towels, available in a choice of three colours (blue, brown and green), are being manufactured by Lawton Arts of Huddersfield and should on sale at Holy Trinity for the duration of the anniversary celebrations.
