Holy Trinity is part of a benefice (group) of four churches in central Windsor in the Diocese of Oxford. It is an imposing building on the edge of the town centre shopping area, and close to Windsor College. Holy Trinity is unusual being both a parish church (serving the local community) and a garrison church (serving the two army barracks in Windsor). The connections with the army go back to the origins of the church, with a particular connection with the Household Division.
Holy Trinity is regularly open during the week and due to the pandemic there is just one 10am service within our group of churches on a Sunday (in both instances please see the calendar for details). Everyone is welcome at all services. In addition some services during the week are streamed on Facebook (please see below). Our 10am Sunday service is usually streamed to those at home via Zoom - this is by invitation only and if you would like to join our mailing list please contact Revd Sally or the Church Office. Following the Prime Minister's lockdown announcement on 4 January the church remains open, as scheduled, for private prayer and for services (as do the other churches in the benefice).
All those visiting the church for private prayer or attending a service must: wear an appropriate face covering which covers their face and mouth (unless medically exempt); use hand sanitiser; keep a distance of at least one metre (ideally two metres); and follow the directions as signed or given by wardens/stewards. Whilst in church you should not chat/mingle with anyone outside your household group or bubble. Singing by the congregation is not permitted. During the current lockdown (from 6 January): weddings can only be held under exceptional circumstances and attendance is limited to a maximum of six people; and funeral services can be attended by up to 30 people. Those who are clinically extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 should stay at home as much as possible and observe social distancing guidance, and it is advisable not to attend church in person during this time. Please see this document for further information.
There is a small, friendly, regular worshipping community at Holy Trinity who are pleased to welcome visitors and to host large scale special services such as at Remembrance and Christmas (we don't know what these will be like in 2021 but were delighted to be able celebrate Christmas in our church buildings). If you were unable to attend our beautiful Carol Service at Holy Trinity you can watch it on YouTube or Facebook.
The church is regularly used for concerts, and has very good acoustics, and a powerful organ and we look forward to our next Pop-up Restaurant (probably in 2022 now) with one of our superb local chefs and their restaurant (details of forthcoming events are posted on social media and on our Events page).
