Today we celebrate the Third Sunday of Advent (Joy), and our virtual service is a very special Virtual Christmas Carol Service! It would be great if as many people as possible could start watching our Virtual Carol Service together at 10.30am, and join us via Zoom for tea, coffee or mulled wine around 11.30am.
We are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of one of our church members, Simon Tennant, who died suddenly last Thursday evening. Simon was an active member of our church family for many years, serving as treasurer and singing in the choir amongst many other things. We will miss him immensely, and ask that you hold his wife, Pascale, and daughter, Clara, in your prayers.
Nous sommes profondément attristés par le décès soudain de Simon Tennant, décédé subitement la semaine dérnière. Simon était un membre actif de notre famille anglicane pendant de nombreuses années, servant de trésorier et chantant dans la chorale, entre autres. Il nous manquera énormément et nous vous demandons de tenir sa femme, Pascale, et sa fille, Clara, dans vos prières.
Simon’s funeral service will take place at Holy Trinity Church on Friday 11th December at 2.30pm.
Le service funéraire de Simon aura lieu à l’Eglise Holy Trinity le vendredi 11 décembre à 14h30.
Due to the very restricted numbers of people allowed in church, we invite you to click here to join the live-stream service (from 2.25pm)
En raison du nombre très limité de personnes autorisées dans l’église, nous vous invitons à cliquer ici pour rejoindre le service de diffusion en direct (à partir de 14h25)
The Homily and the tributes to Simon given during the service are available below. La Homélie et les hommages à Simon rendus lors de la cérémonie sont disponibles ci-dessous.
The family asks that instead of giving flowers (reserved for family members) any donations be given to charity.

Time is running out to sign up for our Zoom Virtual Christmas Family Fun Quiz Night this Saturday 5th December at 18h00 to which everyone is warmly invited. Top prize is a bottle of Champagne and we will have a special guest hosting the evening! Questions range from the origins of Christmas traditions, to identifying Christmas Carols played backwards, fathoming famous cathedrals from around the world, famous people when they were much younger and much, much more!
Whilst the Quiz is free to enter, as the Christmas Fête isn’t happening this year, Holy Trinity would very much appreciate any small donations for their charitable Outreach programme. If you want to donate, please give as little or as much as you can afford (eg. €5 donation per family, or more!).
Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email giving you the link to join on the night.
(Please note, the email confirmation is a standard, unalterable Zoom response, and contains the sentence: “Please submit any questions to: email@example.com” but please DO NOT contact Charlotte, her name is there only because it’s her email account).
Looking forward to seeing lots of you this Saturday at 18h00!
