Welcome to Holy Trinity, Matlock Bath
Through this site our hope is that you might gain a flavour of the life of the church and a sense of the warmth of God's love that has changed so many lives. Whatever your reason for visiting, more than anything else we want you to know about the life that can be found in Jesus Christ and how much of a difference this has made to us.
By putting our trust in Jesus Christ we know the reality of God's life and love poured into our hearts. This has changed us as people and continues to do so. We are very ordinary people, not at all special and so we know that what we have received is not something we have deserved, or in any way earned, but is given freely.
A number of small groups meet regularly in different parts of the area covered by our membership, and provide fellowship, mutual support and pastoral care, with time to study and pray together. We are gradually establishing intermediate sized groups, or Pastorates, consisting of two or three small groups, together with others who may have recently completed the Alpha course, or joined the church. These Pastorates provide a good way of getting to know more people, growing in faith, and becoming involved in the life of the church. Currently two such groups meet on alternate Tuesday evenings in church.
Nick Grayshon joined us as priest in charge of this parish and St Maryís Cromford on 6 October 2007. We are very much looking forward to getting to know and working with Nick and his wife Val. Exciting times lie ahead as we explore together what Godís plan is for us in the coming months and years.
Holy Trinity church is the only centre for worship in Matlock Bath village, but has strong links with both churches in Cromford, and also with other churches in Matlock. We are working and praying towards changes in our buildings and attitudes which will make us more user-friendly and more available to the community at large.
