Home

Welcome to Holy Trinity Bosbury.  At the heart of our village are its people, the church, the Bell pub and the school.  Our historic church is a spiritual place where we meet to worshop God, as well as a focus for music making and other community activities.   Here you will find friendly faces, someone to talk to, and things to do, but also somewhere quiet to reflect.

Services and Events

Here is a list of services and events at Bosbury over the next month or so – the full church calendar is here

Please bear in mind that even when there is no service at Holy Trinity Bosbury, there will be services at other local churches – see the Hop Churches News for details.  Services normally last about an hour, and refreshments (tea, coffee, biscuits or cake) are usually laid on half an hour before Evensong and after Parish Communion.

People

The Reverend Mandy Williams is the Rector for all eight of the Hop Churches, including Holy Trinity Bosbury.

Mandy is supported by the Ledbury Group Ministry.

Please feel free to call Mandy on 07780 586846 or 01531 670753, especially if you or someone you know would like to receive Communion at home.

The Hop Churches are extremely fortunate to call up on the services of a number of non-stipendiary and (supposedly !) retired clergy, of whom you are most likely to see Reverend Prebendary Nicky Seabright and The Venerable George Howe at Bosbury.

The governing body for Holy Trinity Bosbury is the Parochial Church Council, or PCC

 

Music

Holy Trinity Bosbury has one of the finest organs in the local area, and the church has a strong musical life.

Bosbury Church choir  sings twice a month for Parish Communion and Evensong.  It rehearses on Wednesdays from 5.30-6.30 pm in the church,  and new members are always  welcome. If you would like to sing in the choir, please contact Kate Cheetham.

For confident choral singers, there is the option to sing Evensong each month ‘on the day’ (4th Sunday of the month).  With prior notice to Kate Cheetham you will be emailed copies of the music so you can prepare for a 4.45pm rehearsal followed directly by Evensong at 6.00pm. We aim to sing a mixture of traditional and more contemporary music in anything from unison arrangements to up to four parts for major church festivals. Do get in touch if you would like to join us as a regular member or on a more ad hoc basis.
