Following the Prime Minister's announcement on 23rd March, the Church of England have closed all church buildings (as well as suspended public worship) until further notice. Sadly this means we will not be meeting in person at church or Jacob's Well. All other events and gatherings are cancelled, this includes the Saturday breakfast, lunch, coffee mornings, the Festival of Ideas and Bloom! York. This new webpage aims to keep people updated and to provide useful links to information, resources and support. Sign up for email updates. For those who do not have internet access; we will provide updates by telephone and post.
The monthly magazine will continue to be published. This can be downloaded or sent via post.
Phone tree and community support
To keep in touch during this time we have a new phone tree system in place. People are paired with volunteers who will telephone them regularly and help with shopping, posting letters, and collecting medicines.
If you would like to be part of this, for someone to call you regularly or you need help with shopping, or to call others in our community email us at mark@holytrinityyork or call us on 01904 630518. Please also contact us if you would like to volunteer and support people in the community.
Our medieval church hall, Jacob's Well, remains closed until further notice. To query, amend or cancel bookings email us at jacobswell@holytrinityyork or call us on 01904 630518

To help with audio/sound quality we are changing how you join by telephone. We hope this will address feedback we have received.
Please see the details under each service on the pew sheet (above). Dial the number and when asked the meeting ID. Calls to 03 numbers cost no more than a national rate call to an 01 or 02 number and must count towards any inclusive minutes in the same way as 01 and 02 calls.
