Trinity Church came to the rescue during the Summer of 2020, providing alternative accommodation for Trinity & St Michael’s CE & Methodist Primary School during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The school was delighted to receive such a positive response from Rev Sue and the Church Leadership Team when they requested use of the church buildings. The additional accommodation made it possible for all of the school’s Reception Class children to be offered full-time attendance for the second half of the Summer Term. The School and Church Leadership Teams worked closely to make sure all necessary checks and required CV-19 guidelines were met in order to ensure a safe and happy return to school.

Staff and pupils expressed how they thoroughly enjoyed their time at church, really appreciating its beauty and space, the warm welcome and feeling of togetherness.

Several staff and parents expressed how they felt it would become one of those very special experiences that everyone would always remember.

Trinity Rainbow School certainly delivered Hope during a time of very significant challenge for all.

Miss Hyett made a ‘thank you’ card,

and Frank wrote a very thoughtful message:

Rev Sue presented everyone with a souvenir gift from the church- a beautiful Noah’s Ark book for each child and a Book of Prayer for each member of staff.

Mrs Beatty presented Rev Sue with a souvenir picture from school to remind everyone of the happy and special time enjoyed by all at Trinity Church.
