Trinity Tots is for children up to the age of 5 years. The group meets on the first Sunday of the month in the Parish Centre during the 11.00 am service. There is a wide range of activities during the meeting. Special events are also held, e.g. Christmas Party and Easter Fun Day. The children return to the service in time to say The Lord's Prayer together and during Communion can go to the altar rail with their parents for a blessing.
Children & Young People
We are very lucky to have two schools, both with nursery places within our parish; Holy Trinity C of E Primary School, which was completely rebuilt recently, and Golden Flatts Community School
Holy Trinity School adjacent to church is now part of the Durham Diocesan Multi Academy Trust. From entry 2018/2019 there will no longer be church places but the school will maintain a strong Christian ethos and Christian values. Every other Wednesday the church is filled with teachers and children from the School for the 9.15 communion service in which the school's 'Worship Team' take part. We have School Governor reps on our PCC, but we feel we can build even stronger links between the school and church. The school achieved an outstanding grade in the last Ofsted inspection.
Golden Flatts is a small community school located about one mile from the church. The children used to come to church but owing to logistical problems in getting here, we have lost some contact with the school. However, our last vicar did make regular visits to the school and we hope that our new vicar will be able to start visits again. The school achieved a grade of good at the last Ofsted inspection, but it was noted that the school was continuing to improve.
