Worshipping together since 1996
During October Trinity will be staging two tea-time concerts (sorry, not dances) in support of the celebrations. They are:-
Saturday 9th - The Eden Consort with Andrew Lewis on the organ and keyboard - a celebration through music from across the last five centuries. The concert will be followed by tea, coffee and cake in the Large Hall.
Saturday 16th - the Wavensworth Clarinet Quartet who will present a celebratory programme of light classical music and popular folk tunes. Trinity's Director of Music, Victor de Paula will make a cameo appearance. On this occasion there will be an interval during which you can enjoy refreshments in the Large Hall.
There is no admission charge to either event, instead a retiring collection will be taken in aid of the Anniversary Charity, Mind in Mid-Herts.
Please keep referring to this page for up-to-date news as the year proceeds.
The following few paragraphs have been left in for background information to the anniversary, so please read on.
Early in 2020, an enthusiastic group of Trinity members spent a Leadership Day at Westminster College in Cambridge with a view to looking into the future of a church that had been without a minister for 6 months and when Covid-19 was a minor threat on the horizon.
How times have changed!
Among the priority outcomes for further action from the discussions that day, apart from the continuing search for a new minister, was a unanimous desire to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Trinity as a Local Ecumenical Partnership (LEP). One of the projects developed to mark this milestone is a history of how the LEP came into being and making it as accessible as possible to all. Anyone who does not have access to to the world-wide web will be sent a printed copy.
You now have a choice as to what you view first of two "files".
The first link will take you to a collection of views from the five Ministers that have served Trinity since 1996. The second or third link takes you to a file containing a Timeline that presents those 25 years in graphic form highlighting any significant events along the way.
Which you view first is entirely up to you but please enjoy what you see and read!
While those involved in its compilation make no apologies for errors or oversights, we wish to thank all who have contributed to this project that marks this significant period of time for our church, Trinity Church in Knebworth.
Your “History Boys” are Graham Fothergill, Colin Stringer and Peter Bodden.

NB The Timeline file format is a PowerPoint presentation and moves between the slides automatically. IF you don't have the Microsoft program PowerPoint then an alternative version can be found by clicking on the link below to open a PDF version of the Timeline. This version needs to be operated manually, page by page.
PS All feedback will be welcome! Also, at the time of writing, the constraints imposed by the pandemic are gradually being loosened so please check with this web-site for further events celebrating Trinity@25 as well as progress, we pray, being maintained towards holding live-streamed, then in-person, services at Park Lane.
