Welcome to Holy Trinity Church

A special welcome if you are on holiday in the area and are thinking of worshipping with us, we start at 10:45am Sundays and we aim to be suitable for all ages, including crèche facilities.
St Mary’s Cromford have an early 9:30am service though there is no specific provision for children or youth. However on the second Sunday of each month St Mary’s congregation meet with the Methodist congregation at Cromford at 10:30am.

Through this site our hope is that you might gain a flavour of the life of the church and a sense of the warmth of God’s love that has changed so many lives. Whatever your reason for visiting, more than anything else we want you to know about the life that can be found in Jesus Christ and how much of a difference this has made to us.

We want you to know about the power of God’s love through Jesus Christ, not because we want to make you like us, but because our experience of Christ is the greatest treasure we know. To keep this to ourselves, or allow such knowledge to be obscured by many other words which are of lesser importance, would be very wrong. So above all we trust that this site accurately reflects our lives together and bears witness to the wonderful gift of lives made new in Christ.

We seek to pursue excellence in evangelism, worship, discipleship, service and fellowship.
We would be delighted to hear from you, if you think we may be able to serve you in some way.


Community
Matlock Bath is made up of three major communities, residents, traders and tourists. Holy Trinity church is the only centre for worship in Matlock Bath village. Over the years lots of prayer and a variety of outreach events have taken place to reach members of the Parish. The Church building was partly re-ordered in 2012 and has a new kitchen and toilets, and we have begun work on further re-ordering. Community use of the building is increasing being hired by DaleDiva and the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music. Holy Trinity School also come to the church building for Collective Worship each Monday at 9:00am, Special Services, School Leavers Service and as part of the RE curriculum.

Holy Trinity church is the only centre for worship in Matlock Bath village, but has strong links with both churches in Cromford, and also with other churches in Matlock.

We are working and praying towards changes in our buildings and attitudes which will make us more user-friendly and more available to the community at large.

Mission
Being in a much visited area of Derbyshire, we welcome many holiday makers and other visitors to our services, particularly during the summer months and trust they are refreshed and encouraged by their times with us. We are continuing to focus our efforts on running regular Alpha courses and rejoice at the growth and development we are seeing.  Looking further afield, we have long-standing links  with the Church Mission Society, Interserve, Tear fund, and the Church Pastoral Aid Society, and have had personal links with partners in some of these over the years.

Matlock Town CenterMatlock Town Center

A loop system is installed in church. Some of our sermons can be downloaded from our website or simply listened to then and there. There is a Crèche Room at the back of church. As yet we don’t have Children or Youth church at St Mary’s, however we do at Holy Trinity where young visitors are welcome to join our Young People as they leave for their children/youth church. At Holy Trinity, we do not take a collection, but should you wish to give, there are boxes at the sides of the doors into the body of the Church. A Collection is taken during a hymn at St Mary’s.

Car Parking at Holy Trinity Church for Sunday Services
If you park in the Pay & Display car park because the Church car park is full, you must put a parking fee ticket on your car for the required time, presently £2.20. Someone has recently received a car parking fine as they didn’t have a ticket. Alternative free parking is by the New Bath Hotel, turning immediate right before it onto common land. It’s an easy walk to church from there..WP (weather permitting)!
