Our church community is open to people of every language, nationality, creed and colour. Situated on the North-western edge of Paris, our community has been here for over a century – our church building is somewhat younger, but marked with a sense of prayer, love and care. We believe that our Heavenly Father has placed us here on earth to worship Him and to follow the way of Jesus Christ; receiving with reverence His gifts of life and grace, in compassionate, self-giving service to our brothers and sisters.
Holy Trinity Church, Maisons Laffitte, is set in spacious gardens not far from the Chateau, a 10 minute walk from the RER station and with easy access by car. Our lovely church grounds grants us fine opportunities for social events like the Summer Fête, the Rentrée BBQ and the Bonfire Night, and is often used by our uniformed organisations and toddler groups, as well as by the congregation after our Sunday services. We have enjoyed an excellent relationship with the local French community and our ecumenical friends, both Catholic and Protestant.
Our ‘Nine Lessons and Carols’ often takes place in one of the Catholic churches in the area, as we can only comfortably seat 125 in our own church. The worship and spirituality of Holy Trinity is firmly anchored in the Anglican and Episcopalian tradition, while remaining deeply conscious of our indebtedness to deeper and older streams of Christian experience. We are also learning new attitudes and habits of the heart from contemporary forms of Christian life! As T.S Eliot wrote in ‘Choruses from the Rock’:
“What life have you if you have not life together?
There is no life that is not in community,
And no community not lived in praise of GOD”.
