Music At Holy Trinity
The Director of Music, Stephen Ansell, B.A., (Ebor), who is a professional musician, oversees a comprehensive programme of Musical activities, which encompasses young and old alike. We are also extremely lucky to have an honorary assistant organist in the person of David Bleazard, M.A., B. Mus., ARCO, who is an expert in plainchant and we have the services of Roy Rogers, an organist of many year’s experience.
Sunday Sung Mass
Every Sunday there is a full sung Mass, which is lead by a highly experienced choir of a minimum of 4 members. The Psalm is played by David Bleazard and sung by the choir, who also perform a motet or anthem at every Sunday Mass.
We meet in the hall inside Holy Trinity Church Ramsgate every Sunday morning from 9.30 to 10.30. Our mission is to bring the word of God alive and to encourage the growth of our Church. The children enjoy Bible stories with puppets, crafts and we are lucky to have a wonderful director of music who teaches the children to sing and sometimes gets them to help him write the songs! Children of all ages are welcome.
The Director of Music leads the Sunday School in a musical activity every week this piece is then performed by the children during the Mass.
Baptism is a response to God’s love – a desire and a commitment to respond to God’s call to follow the example of Jesus Christ. It is also a celebration, a time to come together with family and friends; remembering that you are loved by God, are part of a wider community and have a place with God’s people.
Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which you affirm for yourself the faith into which you have been baptized and your intention to live a life of committed discipleship. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands by the confirming bishop. The Church also asks God to give you power through the Holy Spirit to enable you to live in the way of Jesus.
Today more than a quarter of all marriages in England between a man and a woman takes place in the traditional setting of a Church of England church. You’re welcome to marry in church whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are baptised and whether or not you go to church.
