Holy Trinity Church is a community of people of all ages in North Yorkshire who are committed to loving God, following Jesus and being part of His transforming mission in the world and particularly in Ripon. Evangelical by tradition and open to the working of the Holy Spirit our parishioners are of mixed ages and come from a wide background of traditions. The congregation members enjoy the variety and challenge of being an inclusive church; our children are not the church of tomorrow but the church of today and our older members ensure that the best traditions of the past are combined with all that is contemporary and current. Our different services have different styles including traditional, contemporary and informal, and Holy Trinity Ripon is a busy place.
