And a message to the people of Minchinhampton from the Headteacher: “we are absolutely thrilled. In fact, we had two school masses last Friday, one for the elementary school and one for our middle school.
The photos attached do not do the altar or the positioning in the auditorium justice, but we are truly thrilled that it has a home in our school. We celebrated the feast of the much-loved Parisian, St Vincent de Paul. Our own congregation of sisters were truly thrilled - even and accused me of having the touch of Downton Abbey.
There’s a short video at the end, and the singing is better in real life. We are delighted - thank you!”

Apart from the High Altar, Holy Trinity Church has two moveable altars which are now being used in the Lady Chapel and/or the nave for different events and services. We have regained space and flexibility in the beautiful 14th century Lady Chapel. The altar was Victorian and is now much better placed being used for Christian worship (one of the Bishop’s requirements) in a large auditorium serving a whole school.


LIFE prayer

God of hope and transformation,
who in our Lord Jesus Christ offers the gift of life in all its fullness,

joy in our following and vision in our leadership.
May we be rich in imagination,
confident in faith,
and courageous in our engagement
with the people and places of this diocese.
As we share your life with the world,
keep us rooted and grounded in love
as we bear witness to your glory
and pray for your Kingdom to come.
Amen.
