Holy Trinity Church 150th Celebrations – Concert Launch It is planned to have a number of events throughout the year, starting with a Music Concert as the official launch on the 10th of February. The proceeds of this Concert will go to the Crosshaven Community project ‘Save Our Spire’ (SOS Project) for the old Templebreedy Church. We are delighted to support the SOS project as this was our place of worship until 150 years ago, and it is timely in this year of celebration to connect the old history of Templebreedy Church with the newer history of Holy Trinity Church. Over the past 150 years Holy Trinity Church has become a well known and loved place within the village and it is fitting that the opening event is one of music, song and celebration. Dr. Eva McMullan is  kindly coordinating this not-to-be missed concert and we are excited that Iarla O’ Lionaird has agreed to top the bill performance.

Pancake Morning – Tuesday February 13th, Shrove Annual Parish Fundraiser at the Rectory 10am-12 noon. More details to follow.
