Services at Holy Trinity Theale

Sundays at 10.30am

We meet for worship every Sunday morning at 10.30am.

Every Sunday we worship together with wonderful music, the Bible is read and explained and we bring up all our needs in prayer. There are also special children's activities during the service.

On three Sundays of the month, we have a FAMILY COMMUNION Service with Sunday school. At this service, after the sermon and prayers, we remember and celebrate the death of Jesus Christ on the cross for us all. We thank God for His great saving Act of sending His Son to die for us and conquer sin and death. Everyone is invited to participate in this service: to receive the bread and wine if it is their custom or to come up for a blessing. All children are invited up to receive a blessing.

If anyone with mobility difficulties wishes to have Communion brought to their seat that can be easily arranged. Similarly, we can provide non-alcoholic wine or gluten-free wafers.

There are 2 Sunday school groups - the for 3's to 10's, the other for 11's upwards - which meet every Sunday in the Rectory; the young people leave church usually after the second hymn for and return about 20 mins later at the Peace. There is a group of experienced Sunday school leaders.

Morning Worship

On the first Sunday of the month, we have a MORNING WORSHIP Service. This is an informal service lasting between 45 mins and an hour suitable for all the family. The Bible is read and explained in the sermon. There are prayers lead by the clergy and a member of the congregation. We sing a range of hymns modern and traditional. Our orchestra which consists of both teenagers and older folk usually accompanies one of the hymns and the choir sing an anthem. There is Sunday school for children age 3- 10. The teenagers stay in the church for the sermon in this service and often lead the prayers. 

Family Church

Every month we have a Family Church aimed at all the family. It is a short informal interactive service where young children can move around without parents feeling awkward. The service normally has a special theme; we've enjoyed Frozen Church, Star Wars Church and we celebrate Palm Sunday with real donkeys and donkey rides. Each year we also have a Prayer Safari, a tractor-trailer ride around Theale and Englefield. See the calendar for the next date.
