Holy Trinity Leaton

 

The Parish of Leaton has a population in the region of 2000 and has centres of worship in the Parish Church of Holy Trinity and in the Mission Church in the village of Bomere Heath, which is the main centre of population. The churches work closely with the Methodist and Presbyterian chapels in Bomere Heath.

There is a broad range of worship offered at Holy Trinity on Sundays. This is mainly Eucharistic, using Common Worship Order 1, with a monthly BCP Matins and also a monthly all-age service.

Blue Christmas?

From the middle of November, shops, media and advertising try to convince us that Christmas is magical, full of joy and fulfilment.  Cares are banished and laughing children reinforce the message that sadness and anxiety have no place in the festivities. 

But what if we’re feeling blue, bereaved, lost and sad?  What if we would just like to draw close to the heart of Christmas, in quietness?

New for 2017:  Blue Christmas Service

Sunday 10th December at 3.00 pm, The Mission Church, Bomere Heath

Readings, candles, some quiet and gentle carols, not too long.

Sacred space in all the hurly burly.

You are invited . . .

Nativity Walk

Monday 18th December in Bomere Heath.  This year the walk takes a different direction.  We start at the Presbyterian Church at 4.15 pm and finish at the Village Hall.  People of all ages enjoy this annual preparation for Christmas, walking in heart and mind to Bethlehem with Mary, Joseph, and a real donkey, who is also called Joseph.

Church Schools

The school in Bomere Heath has had successful inspections recently.  First came the Ofsted inspection, which all schools go through.  Soon after that was the inspection which looks at how well church schools are expressing the Christian faith and values on which they are founded.  Happily in both cases the verdict was “Good”.  We are told that to reach that level, a school has to do better than in the past because standards have been raised.  Particular comment was made about the strong links between school and church.  So well done, Bomere Heath.
