Burton and Holme Churches

Welcome to


Holy Trinity Holme

The Church is alive and active, but our buildings must close.

The Church of England, in response to guidance from the UK government, has decided that, as well as public worship being suspended, all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.  Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in our buildings.

This website will give updates and details of how to join with others in prayer and worship while remaining in our separate homes

We are here in the villages and we want to be as much help to people as possible. If we can be of practical or other assistance to you or anyone you know please do ring one of us or another member of the congregation.  We will do our best to help.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”  Mark 12:30

To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips

Easter Services During the Coronavirus restrictions

Good Friday

There will be a 10.00am Good Friday service of bible readings and songs. The Order of Service, which can be accessed and downloaded here, contains details of the bible readings and YouTube links to the songs. We hope you find this helpful and enjoyable.

Easter Sunday 

On Easter Sunday we will be holding an on-line Service of Worship starting at 10.00am. If you have  not received the Order of Service by e-mail, you can still obtain it here. We do hope you enjoy the service and find it of some comfort during these difficult times.

You can also click here to watch a live service of worship every Sunday at  1030 am from Jesmond  Parish Church, Newcastle.

You are welcome!

As the minister of the parishes of Burton and Holme, welcome to our website! I hope that I will get the chance to greet you personally either in the villages or at one of the churches.

We aim to be friendly church families who make it easy for new people to join us or just to come along and see what we are about.

We remember that the church buildings in Burton and Holme were built to be places of worship for everyone in the villages.

Whether you’ve just arrived or have lived here for years you will be very welcome at any of our services, groups or events.

If you’ve got questions or you’d like to talk to me then do get in touch; I’m not too busy to phone you or visit you.
