History of Holy Trinity, Allington

Holy Trinity church seats approximately one hundred people comfortably although more can be accommodated on occasions.  Holy Communion is said on the first and third Sundays of the month. A Family Service is taken by the Lay Ministry Team on the fourth Sunday monthly.

The beautiful Millennium Peace Window, was designed and created by the late Dr. Antony Holloway. The dedication took place at a service in December 1999, together with the Millennium Time Dial which resides in the porch, the colourful altar-rail kneelers worked by members of the congregation and the Millennium Peace Book, which records the names of those who contributed towards the Peace Window.

There is no shortage of flower arrangers or church cleaners throughout the year as a rota system operates smoothly. Allington can boast strong inter- dominational participation both in welcoming other churches in the diocese and also attending their ecumenical services.

There are two bells in the belfry, both in excellent working order. This can be verified by the inhabitants of Allington as the bells are rung every Sunday morning
