Holy Trinity with St Nicholas in Weymouth, Dorset is a friendly, approachable and open church playing a central role in the local community.
We welcome visitors to our services from all Christian denominations and none, and they are all welcome to join us as we worship and share communion together.
From the Vicar’s letter this month…
There is a wonderful biblical passage from the book of the prophet Jeremiah, 29: 11-13 which says: ‘For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call…” Continue reading

Traidcraft Big Brew
Following last year’s successful event we will be holding another Traidcraft Big Brew from 10.00 - 3.00 pm where you can enjoy a cup of Fairtrade tea or coffee and a slice of delicious home-made cake while supporting the work of Traidcraft Exchange.
There will be a wide range of fairly trade food, cards and gifts available with many gifts and jewellery at much reduced prices. Also jewellery and bags to support the Dorset/Murugi Community Projects in Kenya.
The money raised will help people to boost their skills, work together with their peers and dramatically increase their incomes. Lifting people out of poverty in this way enables them to feed their families, keep their children in school, and get healthcare when they’re ill.

Lent Study Course
The first session will be held this morning at 11.00 am following our Holy Communion service. This year’s theme is “Receiving Christ” with reference to the statement in St John’s Gospel that ‘To all who received him … he gave power to become children of God.’ (John 1.12.).
As well as hearing the views of some leading theologians on a CD there will be plenty of time for discussion and exploring the Gospel’s implications for our day-to-day lives. There will be a Lent lunch of soup and bread after the session with the money raised donated to a charity chosen by the group. We are looking for volunteers to provide soup each week so please let Janet Hall know if you are able to help.
There will be further sessions each Wednesday morning during Lent.
The foundation of our life in the Church is worship and prayer, as we support each other on the journey of faith. In the power of God’s spirit we are sent out to make Christ known in the communities he has called us to serve.
