We have a variety of regular groups which meet as part of our church family life.
Groups cater for all different needs and all different ages.
It isn't easy to get to know everyone in the church family, but regular groups make it possible for you to meet new people and to get to know them.
Home groups are groups of church members (usually no more than twelve) who meet together in people’s homes in order to get to know each other better, study the Bible and apply it to daily life, offer mutual support and worship God and pray together. In a way they are like church in miniature.
They usually meet fortnightly, with different groups on different evenings in the week, and there is one day-time group. The meetings run in a relaxed, informal atmosphere, and we see them as a key building block in the life of the church.
New members are always welcome – so if you would like to join a group or would simply like to find out more, just ask at the Church Office or speak to Ian, our Vicar.
Church Prayer Life
On the 3rd Tuesday of every month we have our church prayer meetings; one at 10:15 am for an hour in the Church Lounge Foyer, and another from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm in the Church Lounge.
Some church members pray together in what are known as prayer triplets.
We have a confidential prayer chain. In the first instance, please phone the Vicar, Ian – Tel: 363657 – if you would like to ask for prayer for yourself or someone else.
At all our morning services and at the evening service of Holy Communion, there is the opportunity for anyone who wishes to receive confidential prayer from members of our Ministry Team, for example for healing or because they want to go deeper with God. There are also specific ministry services approximately 3 times per year.
Healing Services are held quarterly on Sunday evenings at 6.30pm. Our Healing Prayer Team is led by Nigel Andrews, and all the members of his team are sensitive and experienced in this field.
Churches Together in Boston (CTIB)
Holy Trinity plays a full and active part in Churches Together in Boston (CTIB).
We share in a number of projects together, ranging from united services to the Street Pastors Scheme (for details see www.streetpastors.org.uk), and from a regular ministers’ prayer breakfast to a weekly soup kitchen for the homeless.
Our overriding goal is to ‘bless Boston’.
Centrepoint-Outreach (www.centrepoint-outreach.com) is a Christian charity based in Boston working with homeless and vulnerable people with social and economic needs from all walks of life.
This group is for both parents/carers and their pre-school-aged children and meets on a Wednesday. There are two sessions. The morning session runs from 9:15 am to 11:30 am and the afternoon session runs from 12:15 pm to 2:30 pm during term time in the Church Lounge. There is a large variety of toys for children to play with, weekly craft activities for children to enjoy and take home, optional singing and healthy snacks.
All parents, carers and children from the community are warmly welcome. Parents and carers find Trinity Tots to be a place where new friends can be made and real support found over a cup of tea or coffee.
This is an informal group open to everyone which meets on Monday afternoons in the Church Lounge (except Bank Holidays) between 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm. A cup of tea and biscuits are available as are scrabble, dominoes and the like. Once a month the meeting includes a brief time of worship. Transport can be provided for those who are unable to travel to church themselves. For more details please contact Paula Sargeant via the Church Office.
Primarily a group for ladies of all ages, to enjoy fellowship together in a variety of ways – Bible study, quiet days, outings and ladies' conferences to name a few. To support one another on our Christian journey and encourage others to join us. For more information, please contact Sue Pickwell via the Church Office.
Chill Out and Chat
The ladies meet up between 2pm and 4pm on the last Wednesday of each month at the home of Liz Leggott. Enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Manor Farm; go for a walk around the grounds, or sit and chat in the lounge.
This year's dates and more information are available from the Church Office.
Scripture Union, along with other organisations, produces a range of notes which are designed to help people of all ages to gain a deeper understanding of the Bible from systematic reading. If you wish to order a set of notes, or find out more about what is available, have a word with one of the Bookstall Team on the bookstall.
Men's Breakfast provides an opportunity for men of all ages to get together for a leisurely Saturday morning breakfast (sometimes full English, others continental) on a regular basis.
Men's Breakfast is a great way of getting to know other men in the church and to build up stronger friendships.
Bereavement Drop In
Our Bereavement Drop in is held monthly, on the second Saturday in the Church Lounge, for those who have been recently bereaved. It is an informal time where you can come along at any time and leave when you want. The Drop In runs from 10.00 am until 12.00 noon. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided. Prayer ministry is available.
