Prayers to give thanks for and to remember Prince Philip

God of our lives,
we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
for the love he shared among us,
and for his devotion to duty.
We entrust him now to your love and mercy,

through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.

Merciful God, be close to all who mourn,
especially The Queen and all members of the Royal Family.

May they know the hope of your promises
and the comfort of your love,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Eternal God, we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,

founder of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
We remember his vision and imagination,
his interest in young people and his support for them.

Inspire us with the same commitment
to serve friend, neighbour, and stranger alike,

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

(and, for use with young children)

Loving God,
We are sad that Prince Philip has died.
Thank you for his long life
and for his care for The Queen and our country. Amen.

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
