Children are welcome at all church services. There is a
closed off play area at the rear of the church that children can play
in with toys provided and parents can participate in the service. For more details about Family Services and Junior Church please read on.
Family Services are normally held on the first Sunday of every month
at 9.30 a.m. They comprise all-age worship with a special focus on young
people. We sing from the screen display and the Junior Choir often make
one or more contributions to the worship. The service - which normally
lasts about 45 minutes - is followed by morning tea or a sausage sizzle.
Holy Terrors Playgroup
Terrors Playtime is held in the Memorial Hall at Holy Trinity Church,
corner of Anson St. and Byng St. It runs on Thursdays between 10 a.m.
and 12 noon during school terms only. Children are asked to bring their
own morning tea. There is a nominal charge of $2 for each child or $3
for each family. Mums (and dads too!) get free morning tea. A typical
morning includes free play such as craft and painting with morning tea
at 11 followed by outdoor activities. The morning closes with storytime.

Junior Church operates during school terms at the same time as the 9.30 a.m. Holy Communion. Children of all ages are welcome to participate.
The Holy Trinity Junior Choir, known as the Cecilian Singers, was formed in 2008 and has approximately 12 regular choristers aged between 8 and 14. The choir leads the singing at the monthly family service, singing traditional and modern sacred choral music. Children in the choir are trained in vocal technique and musicianship, and enjoy spending time together. Rehearsals are held monthly during school term. The choir is open to all children aged 8-14. To make an enquiry, please contact Rachel Budden 02 6360 2862.
Are you able to help knit or fill bears for our baptism program? A
simple pattern is available. We need about 70 bears per year to keep up
the supply. Please contact Rachel Budden on 6362 1623.
Religious Education in Schools
Each week the state schools in Orange and district have a 30 minute allocation for Religious Education for their students.The church groups provide teachers authorised by their minister who go into the schools and teach individual classes, or in some cases, group seminar sessions, using a set curriculum with material purchased by the Ministers' Association. Children are taught in their home classes and often the class teacher remains in the room and assists in supervision. This year Holy Trinity has provided five teachers who teach in eleven classes and one seminar session. Anyone who would like to assist in this ministry should see Father Frank.
