"Whoever you are; wherever you come from, everyone is welcome here”
The people of Horfield Parish Church try to make these words come alive by example. We are a community gathered in the Church of the Holy Trinity with St. Edmund, and part of the community of Horfield, Bristol.
Our worship is centred on the Eucharist and the sacramental life of God’s church, that we may grow as people who witness, live and experience God’s love at work in the ordinary rhythm of daily life. We worship in the liberal, inclusive, catholic tradition of the Church of England
You will find a warm welcome in our church from people who strive to follow Jesus through prayer, fellowship and service to the wider community. We understand church is not the place to be given firm answers, but a safe place to ask searching questions, find reflective space and be ourselves before God who is love.
We seek to honour the diversity that strengthens us and enhances and enriches our common life. Our church is a place where we have the opportunity to continue our journey towards God together, young and old, encouraging and supporting one another and welcoming the visitor and the stranger with a hospitality that assures no one need travel alone.

COVID-19 precautions: The Rector, Wardens and Director of Music continue to review and revise our risk assessments and thank you for your ongoing support as we strive to protect us all with proportionate restrictions. In the light of the uncertainty surrounding the Omicron variant, we have removed the hassocks, the holy water stoup and will be cleaning pews and other shared spaces when there is more than one service taking place during the course of a day. There will be a designated area at the back of church where there is plenty of space for those who prefer. The baptistry door will be open during services. Mass will continue to be offered eastward facing from the high altar and readings and intercessions from the back of church. The Holy Trinity YouTube channel, with services recorded during Advent and Christmas last year, will be re-promoted. There are no plans at the moment to introduce a booking system for Christmas services again, but we are ready to do so if needed. The wearing of face coverings in church continues to be strongly recommended. Please do ask if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you.
