Welcome to the Website for The Church of the Most Holy Trinity, Ettingshall.
On this day of Annunciation we are delighted to announce that Mr. Ross Brooks has been offered, and has accepted, a curacy at Holy Trinity, Ettingshall, St. Martin of Tours, Rough Hills and St. Stephen the Martyr, Springfield. Ross is currently in his final year at St. Stephen’s House in Oxford, and will be ordained deacon, God willing, later in the year. Precise timings are Coronavirus dependent!
Above is a picture of Ross looking very happy indeed to be coming to Wolverhampton. He introduces himself below. Please remember Ross in your prayers, especially at this uncertain time, as he prepares to move to Wolverhampton.
My name is Ross Brooks. I was born in the market town of Boston, Lincolnshire, where I spent all of my childhood. History was one of my favourite subjects at school, and for a while the thought of being an Egyptologist, or a real life Indiana Jones was the ultimate dream. However God had other plans in store for me. During my time at school, I worked as a paper boy, a Saturday boy in a local butchers, and also became an ambassador for the Holocaust Education Trust.
After school, I went to Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln, where I studied Theology and Education Studies. During my time there, I enjoyed being a part of the Chaplaincy team, especially holding pizza and worship services (PAWS). After graduation, I became a Pastoral Assistant in Tottenham, where I spent two years serving in the parish. I remained living in London for a couple of years after being a Pastoral Assistant, primarily teaching children with Down’s Syndrome across several primary school. The last three years have been spent studying for the priesthood at St Stephen’s House, Oxford, where I am coming to the end of my time. Moving to Wolverhampton is something I am very excited about.
I enjoy my sport, and have played a bit of football and rugby in my time, as well as being a keen gym goer. Cooking is another passion of mine, and more importantly, eating food as well. I also like listening to music, with various different genres playing through the headphones as I go out for long walks.
We look forward to welcoming Ross to Wolverhampton in due course. Please pray for him!
We hope you find what you are looking for as you visit. We regret that at the present time public worship has been suspended due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus. We are broadcasting services daily during this time as follows:

In addition, we are broadcasting celebrations of the Mass daily at the following times:
Update: As from Tuesday 24 March these services will be broadcast from a room in Vicarage. Our church buildings are now closed, even for personal prayer.
We are a community of Christians whose life centres on the life, teachings, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We are friendly, welcoming and try not to take ourselves too seriously. We gather together every Sunday morning at 9.30 am to celebrate, to pray, to reflect upon our lives and on what God might be doing with them.
The Church of the Most Holy Trinity serves the Parish of Ettingshall which lies to the south of the city of Wolverhampton. The church building was consecrated in 1961 and along with our Parish Hall provides a flexible, modern building in which both worship and a variety of community projects are able to work side-by-side to serve God and his people amongst whom we live and work.
Holy Trinity is a church in the Anglo-Catholic tradition, proclaiming Jesus Christ through Word and Sacrament. We are part of the Diocese of Lichfield, under the Episcopal care of the Bishop of Ebbsfleet. At the heart of our lives together is the regular celebration of the Mass throughout the week, most particularly on Sunday mornings (0930). We do our best to offer to God the very best worship we can, and as we are fed by the Word of God and his Sacraments we are sent out to live transformed lives in the service of the local community and the world beyond.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) is available to all by arrangement with the parish priest.
Arrangements for Baptisms, Weddings and for the reading of Banns of Marriage can be made through this website – please use the ‘Enquiry’ form.
