Welcome to the

Tring Team Parish

WELCOME

 

God loves you.  Whatever your age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, ability, job, financial or social status,  God loves you. We are God’s church, and we welcome you.
WELCOME!

Who we are

The Tring Team Parish is the Church of England in Tring, Aldbury, Long Marston, Wilstone and Puttenham. We are a community celebrating and working out our faith through many different styles of prayer and worship. We do our best to live and share God’s love in this modern world through services, social events and service to the community around us. We try and do a lot together so please explore this site or give us a call.

We are a church for all ages and stages

Whether you are only just beginning to explore what you think or believe about God or you have been a worshipping Christian for your whole life; you are welcome.  Whether you are young or old; you are welcome. As we come out of lock down we will be making a special focus of ensuring that our worship is open to those with children; because we that worship with social distancing hasn't been appealing for those with children. We will also be doing our best to make sure that our churches are places of hospitality and hubs for our communities; because we all need to re-connect.

Five churches and online

We have five church buildings all with a regular pattern of worship.  We do encourage you to check the service calendar as you may find a service which appeals to you somewhere across the team.  There is children's provision every week in Tring Church, either as a Sunday Club or when we all worship together.  In Aldbury and Long Marston there is also a monthly Worship for All Service.  We also live stream services each week so you can join us online.

Climate Emergency

We in the Tring Team Parish are committed to responding to the climate emergency.  We are aware that we have a lot to do - it is challenging to make a medieval church energy efficient.  

We already have an air source heat pump to heat  Puttenham Church. We have upgraded our lights to LED in Tring and ALdbury Churches and the Parish Hall and we are developing a plan to improve.  As a first step Tring Church has been awarded a bronze award in the eco churches scheme. 

Toddlers and young children

Toddler Drop in - Every Wednesday in Tring Church 10 am - 12 noon

 

This is a new group for anyone looking after young children.  Everyone is welcome to come along for a cup of coffee and to meet with others. Simply turn up or call Jane or Sarah if you have any queries.

Children are welcome at all of our services but we have particular provision in Tring on Sundays.

1st 3rd and 5th Sundays - Sunday Club.  One of the ministers leads children's worship in the upstairs room. We all come back together for communion.

2nd and 4th Sundays - We all worship together but there is always children's material in the service.

Everybody is welcome

Faith, hope and love abide

but the greatest of these is love

 

As the Anglican Church in Tring and surrounding area, we hope and strive to be a loving, welcoming and caring community that follows Christ and listens to the Holy Spirit.  We believe therefore that we are called to be an inclusive church welcoming all no matter what their gender or sexual orientation might be.  We believe that faithful and committed relationships are a gift from God to all of us regardless of our gender or sexual orientation.  We believe this and are proud to say so.

This statement has been endorsed by each district council and our PCC and is supported by all the clergy.  In 2021 we  joined the inclusive churches movement.

During this difficult time we haven't been able to rely on collections at services but we continue to work hard as church...

... opening when we can, meeting virtually for prayer services and fellowship, loving our neighbours by offering practical support to the vulnerable, and caring for our communities. The work of our church is reliant on people’s generosity, a generosity that is a hallmark of a lived-out faith and a testament to it. 

Thank you for your support!
