The Christian life is shaped around loving God and loving our neighbour. As a Church, we have always undertaken to pray regularly for our local community.
On Wednesday 4 November, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and Bishop of London called the Church of England to prayer for the nation throughout the month of November.
We know that we are in the faithful hands of the risen Christ who knows our weaknesses, tiredness and struggles and whose steadfast love endures forever.
In accordance with the Archbishops' & Bishop of London's call, at 6pm each day until Sunday 6th December, Holy Trinity's bell will be rung to call its members to pray specifically as the Church of England has called us.
Our ministers will be reading and praying this service at 4pm on Sunday 15th November at home (as our churches still have to remain closed at the moment for main services.) But please know we will be especially praying for you at this time.
In the next couple of weeks we will be creating a display of names and messages that we will then email out and upload a photo to our facebook pages and websites. If you would like anything to be added do let us know. With our thoughts and prayers as we take time to remember...
At Holy Trinity Hartshill we are able to perform ceremonies for weddings, baptisms / christenings and funeral services. For more information, you can contact a church warden.
There is a number of groups that meet at the church or the attached Community Hub throughout the week. Take a look and see if there are any groups you would like to participate in.
The picturesque church sits in the heart of Hartshill and has stood for over 150 years. If you wish to know more about the churches heritage then an article by Rose Tyler can help – Read More.
Holy Trinity Church
6th December 2020
Work began back in 1842 when it was decided by the Parish of Mancetter Vestry that a Parish Church was deemed necessary within Hartshill which, at that time, had a population of around 1000 villagers.
Quickly, the local community raised £650 to start the build and when Mr. Richard Jee agreed to donate the stone needed, work was soon under way!
Sadly mid way through the build construction halted and part of the base structure had tumbled. With dwindling funds the build was looking dire... Until Rev H.E. Lowe paid a visit to some friends in near by Atherstone and graciously donated enough money to complete the build.
The first Holy Communion Service was held there on Sunday 30th April 1848 by the Vicar of Mancetter, as Hartshill's new Vicar, Rev. W.J. Edge had not yet been appointed. The Consecration Service took place at the end of June.
