holy trinity church, wysall.

from the Reverend Dr. Stephen Hippisley-Cox...

Dear all

In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice. 

Churches should be open where possible but with no public worship services taking place. Prayers can be said by clergy and ministers on behalf of everyone and churches should consider ways of sharing this with the wider community. 

Of course, we as church and community will continue to do whatever we can to help in this difficult period.

All the best

Stephen

 Giving Appeal 2019

Last October at the harvest supper we launched our giving appeal, inviting regular financial contributions to support the church and its continued work within the village.

Many of our existing supporters increased the amount they gift regularly; we also have a number of new parishioners establishing a commitment.

The PCC would like to heartily thank all of you for your commitment and contribution.

If you would like to gift and think you have missed the opportunity it is possible to establish regular giving at any time. If  you would like to begin or  just need additional information as the Planned Giving Secretary I’m here to help,  please contact me either via my email [email protected] or by telephone 01159373059 I can then assist you with your enquiry .

 VE Day weekend plans

On the evening of Friday 8th May we will be celebrating 75 years since the end of war in Europe. In Wysall we will be opening the village hall at 6.30 to gather for drinks and to hear our very own Town Crier for the evening declare the “Cry for Peace”. Church bells will ring and we shall follow this with a Ceilidh and supper.

On Sunday 10th the village hall will be open at midday for a sausage sizzle and the dedication of the WWII bench. Tickets for the ceilidh will be £5 to cover the cost of the Windmill Folk. The Parish Council are kindly sponsoring the weekend events for which we are very grateful. Any profits will go to “Combat Stress”.

The Strawberry Fair returns this year on Saturday June 13th. Please put the date in your diaries for a fun day. There will be entertainment for all ages. We are always looking for helpers, especially to welcome new members to the village. It is a great way to get to know people. Please get in touch with anyone listed below if you would like to be involved

HOLY TRINITY church history

 Below is a very short history of Holy Trinity Church. You will be delighted to know that a wealth of Church images, history and general information may be found on the Southwell & Nottingham Church History Project Website.

In a prominent position to the south of the village stands Holy Trinity Church, on which site a church has probably stood for over one thousand years, with evidence showing that the church existed in Anglo-Saxon times. Although the Normans built a church on this site in the 11th or 12th Century, most of the present building was erected around the 14th or 15th Century, the spire perhaps being rather later.

Externally, the church stands much as it has done since that time. The buttress at the southeast corner appears to be very untidy and suggests that some damage had been caused to this section of the wall prior to the restoration of the 1870s.

The Church has undergone several restorations and repairs in its long history, all of which have combined to produce what has been rightly described as a “quite charming” building.

THE 100 CLUB

 

We have successfully run a monthly 100 club draw since 2015, initially to generate funds to replace the Lead Nave roof in church and subsequently to support the maintenance of the fabric of our beautiful Grade 1 Listed Church and Churchyard.

2 prize numbers are drawn on the first Sunday of each month with 2 prizes of £100 and £50, in December we have a double draw, with 4 numbers drawn.

We currently have spare numbers so if you would like to participate, they cost £1per number per week, you can either pay annually £52.00 or quarterly £13.00 4 times a year by standing order or cheque.

If you would like a number please contact either Charlotte James at [email protected] or Julia Savage at [email protected]

We look forward to hearing from you.

 

As is customary on the first Sunday of the month we drew the 100 club numbers (at a safe social distance.)

1st prize of £100 to number 97

2nd prize of £50 to number 73
