Ministry to Families aims to serve and equip families to enable them to enjoy life together and to be resourced and released to reach out, both spiritually and practically, to their neighbours and friends so becoming a beacon of God’s love.
In addition we offer the following:
- Family Outreach events
- Respite treats
- Toddler Group support
- Regular practical family support
- Pastoral family visits
- Parenting courses
- Prayer support
- Families Support Scheme
- Families Fellowship Group (see below)
We at HTCD want your family life to be fun but there are times when circumstances mean that living in our homes is rather difficult. Perhaps you are finding it hard to manage the day to day running of the house or you’ve got a new baby, perhaps you find your children are being difficult. Maybe you’re finding it hard to cope with life in general.
These and other problems happen to absolutely EVERYONE who has a family no matter what their financial situation. So we are here to help.
We are trained and DBS checked volunteers from Holy Trinity church who are prepared to come and help you out with your difficulties once a week for a certain period. We work in a similar way to ‘Home-Start’ and the council ‘Family Support Workers’.
Please get in touch with us and we can get together and sort out a practical support for you and your family to bring the fun back into your family life.

Family Fellowship Group
Our Family Fellowship Group which offers a place and time for families to gather together, to share both the joys and the struggles of family life. Meeting on the third Sunday of each month parents, carers and children eat, play, chat and explore together, helping to build relationships and encouragement with people at a similar stage of life. Each gathering is suitable for the Christians and Non-Christians in your family. Whether you are waiting for children to arrive, are one or have some, or if you have left home and are missing your family, you would be most welcome to come along. Ring or email the church office for contact details.
