Altogether service - First Sunday of the Month
The first Sunday of the month is what we call our Altogether Service. It is a bit shorter than our other services, hopefully around 45 minutes and definitely no more than an hour. The service is aimed at the whole family. We believe passionately that we as adult Christians not only have something precious to share with our children, but also that children have so much that they can teach us about the love of God, faith in Jesus and the work of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that if we take Jesus' words about children and the Kingdom of God seriously, then a shared pilgrimage of faith is a vital experience for adults and children alike, as we learn from each other how to be true disciples of Jesus Christ. For this reason, Holy Trinity is very committed to providing worship that allows for the whole church family to come altogether as an inclusive community to encounter and experience Jesus. That is why you will often find crafts, activities and a bible story that is made relevant to all ages as part of this service.
We celebrate communion together in this service and it is usually followed by our monthly Bring and Share lunch.
