HOLY TRINITY CHURCH, RICHMOND
Holy Trinity Richmond is a charismatic evangelical Anglican church in Richmond-on-Thames in South-West London. We have a congregation of around 150 each Sunday morning comprising people of all ages with a strong representation of young families.
We want to be a church with an open door, inviting people in to experience the love and safety that the Spirit brings, and going out with the good news of Jesus. We want to reach out with God’s love and power and help one another live for Jesus. We believe that the good news of Jesus is a message for people of all ages and that meeting Him is a life-changing encounter. We believe that God’s Spirit and word are active today, helping us to know Him personally, and empowering us to minister for him.
We have a thriving ministry to 0 to 11 year olds, both on a Sunday and midweek. For our Sunday groups we have Fledglings (ages 0-3), Scramblers (ages 3-5), Climbers (school years 1-3) and Explorers (school years 4-6) as well as Quest for school years 7-9. We currently have over 90 children and young people who attend at least occasionally.
We run various midweek groups from Refresh (a mum and toddler group) to The Bridge for children making the transition to Secondary School. We have a good working relationship with our linked Church of England Primary School, taking assemblies, running Bible club each week and having a yearly Prayer Space week. We also have a good relationship with our local Church of England Secondary School, Christ’s School, where there is potential for further investment and development.
During the coronavirus pandemic, much of our children and youth work has had to shift and change. As we move out of the restrictions we have the opportunity to refresh and relaunch much of our work, to rethink its purpose and direction and renew its vision. Working alongside our Children’s Pastor, and future Youth Pastor, this will be a significant part of the role of the Children, Youth and Families Minister. This is an exciting time with many opportunities that God is putting before us. We hope and pray that you might also have the same passion as you explore whether this is the role that God is calling you to.
