During the year, we host a variety of events which include fairs and musical concerts – after all one of our stained glass windows is of the Patron Saint of Music, Saint Cecilia. These are fundraising events to help cover the costs of maintaining the historical church building and its gardens. Additionally, 10% of all funds raised go to the charitable organizations we support.
Here is what we have lined up so far. If you would like to hold an event with us or are interested in setting up or getting involved in an existing activity, do not hesitate to get in touch.
This year we are planning to have regular monthly concerts and will post details of these events on both our website and social media pages.
Confirmed performances are:
12th at 5 p.m. : Children’s Cat Concert
The tale of Peter, the cat with no tail and his arch nemesis, Grifon. Grifon tries to rally the other cats in the neighbourhood to bully and tease Peter because he is different. But Grifon will soon learn that being different is something that is to be celebrated and makes us all unique and special. This is an exclusive for Holy Trinity Church and we are very proud to host this heart-warming story.
12th March, 7 p.m.: Easter concert
This concert will take its audience on a moving musical journey through Easter week. For music lovers it is a must-hear with scores spanning from Mozart and Pergolesi to Thomas Arne and Simon and Garfunkel. This performance will provide you with a wonderful time of reflection during this important week in the Christian calendar.
