Holy Trinity Church Westward Ho!

The Church building is light and airy. It is furnished with chairs which makes it a very adaptable worship space. Built in 1869, in its early years it was used as a chapel by the United Services College where Rudyard Kipling was a pupil. Church History

The Church has excellent acoustics and is popular with local choirs and musicians. We have an average of around 40 people on Sunday mornings, increasing during the holiday months. The majority of the congregation are retired, with an increasing proportion of young-retired people.

We have a service every Sunday at 10.30am. There are two communion services every month and we have a strong team of lay worship-leaders. The 4th Sunday of the month has recently been rebranded “Something Different”, when we can explore different forms of worship.

It is a wonderful place to surf and kite surf. Lifeguards patrol in the summer.
