WELCOME TO HOLY TRINITY GOSPORT

GOSPORT’S WATERFRONT CHURCH

This magnificent C of E church was built in 1696 and is situated on the waterfront at Gosport. We have ‘A distinct style of worship.’ Emphasis is placed on the depth and spirituality of the services, with the Eucharist being celebrated ‘in the round’.
Andy would be very happy to discuss a baptism, your wedding or perhaps a Renewal of Marriage Vows, to all of which he has a very open and welcoming approach. Please do have a look at the Information Packs.
Andy would also be very happy to discuss a funeral at what is a very difficult and distressing time for everyone. Please do have a look at our Special Services page.
Holy Trinity share the Vicar with their sister parish of Christ Church, Gosport.

A delightful programme of music was brought to us yesterday afternoon by David Burgess and the Upham Recorder Orchestra: wall to wall music to smile by! We learned a lot too - about recorders (names, sizes, characters), music (100 verses in God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen) and insects (don't ask!). . . We already knew David as a versatile director but seeing him direct a double choir of recorders, one at each end of the church, was quite remarkable! We thank him, all the musicians in the orchestra and our three soloists, Ellie, Lucy and Imogen, (who all played beautifully) for their splendid concert - and look forward to their next visit . . . ...

It was better than special: it was stunning! David Saint played 'fiendishly difficult' music with a touch so light as to make his finger work positively mesmerising! His music programme was delightful throughout but mention must be given to the 'Cantilene' by Jean Langlais which was like nothing else I've ever heard before at Holy Trinity in four years of recitals - it was simply beautiful! David, on the other hand prefers the Bach. We are very grateful to David who travelled from Birmingham to play for us today, and to Geoffrey Holroyde for telling him about us and for acting as page-turner. And the best part? - David has agreed to return in 2019! ... See MoreSee Less

Our November recital promises to be very special indeed! I very much hope you will be with us at Holy Trinity to welcome David Saint, formerly Principal of Birmingham Conservatoire and prolific recitalist, recently playing in Germany, Edinburgh, Korea and London - to name but a few . . . And on Monday he will be playing Bach, Leyding, Langlais and Durufle on our historic, 'Handel' organ. What a treat! See you there - a warm welcome awaits you! Monday 20th at 1pm!

As the last note faded into silence the audience held its collective breath - as if to breathe would break the intimate spell in which they were held by the remembered and poignant echo of the last notes of Durufle's 'Requiem' - and then their warm applause spilled over into the silence. It was the perfect way to end a most perfectly pitched concert on a day of deep reflection and remembrance. David Burgess earlier described to us how all he had wanted was to bring together a wonderful choir, accompanied by a wonderful organ in a wonderful building and that this was the perfect day to play Durufle's 'Requiem'. Well he certainly achieved all this - and more! We thank all members of All Saints Chamber Choir, the soloists, Marc Dancer on the organ, Imogen Glover who acted as page-turner, and of course David Burgess for their memorable performance. ...

Another fabulous concert! Thank you Karen Kingsley and Rob Blanken for saving the day - and in such style!! Karen and Rob selected their programme from their impressively wide repertoire and we were delighted by their choices. Karen told us how much they both love playing the Brahms and how they couldn't think of a better way to end the concert - we agreed whole-heartedly! That said, the English section of the concert was very well received: I found the first piece by William Hurlstone to be music to smile by and found my imagination colourfully engaged in visualisation during the Eric Hughes and Sidney Crooks pieces. At Holy Trinity we continue to wallow in the knowledge that we are truly privileged and thank both Karen and Rob for a wonderful concert. We also wish Judith Wolpe a speedy recovery and look forward to her playing for us in the not-too-distant future. And to the member of the audience who travels from Fareham who told me she considers Holy Trinity as her 'second home' - thank you! We look forward to seeing you on 3rd December! ...

We are truly grateful to Rob and Karen for working on a completely new programme of music with only a few days to go and we are really looking forward to hearing them play on Sunday: programme (with some details to be decided) below!

Today's was a very 'special recital' in all senses of the phrase. The music was simply beautiful and some of it extraordinarily difficult - including Alex's audition piece recently used to win him a scholarship at Worcester College, Oxford! We consider ourselves fortunate indeed that these talented young people found time in their busy schedules to commit themselves to playing for us today. Special thanks must go to Geoffrey Holroyde for his continued work with young musicians: teaching them, supporting them - and staying young for them!

The combined voices of the 52 members of West Hill Park Community Choir singing at Holy Trinity this afternoon made an impressive sound, which our acoustics totally relished! Choir director, Wendy Blunn, said they just liked to enjoy themselves and this was certainly evident in their performance today of a delightful programme of music; they seemed very much to enjoy Wendy's conducting too and responded to it with great sensitivity. The audience loved it and wish them well in their plans to get to BBC Choir of the Year 2018! Thank you from everyone who attended today, to the members of the Choir, soloists, Charlotte, Jessica and 'the baritone', to Nick for his splendid accompaniment and Wendy for her inspiring leadership - not forgetting the very helpful lady in the front row, who looked after the mic for Wendy.

A huge thank you to Oliver Macfarlane for his superb recital at Holy Trinity Church yesterday lunchtime. His splendid programme of music provided a rapt audience with a variety of contrasting pieces, which were clearly complex, and the intricate finger work demanded and demonstrated great sensitivity. Pieces by Mendelssohn, Mozart and Liszt were truly delightful and these were followed by the suitably grand and symphonic Toccata in D Major by Vierne - a programme to delight and impress - and it did! We are really grateful to Oliver (and to Gordon Uphill for acting as page turner) and look forward to his return in 2019! ... See MoreSee Less

'Variety is the Spice of Life' said Peter Elcoat at Holy Trinity Church, Gosport, this afternoon when he led the The Band of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers - and he was right! What a concert! Peter Elcoat brought us a wonderfully entertaining and varied programme which showed the Band sounding just as good as they looked (which is pretty spectacular by the way): in all we had a real and rare treat! As you can see the concert was enjoyed by a large audience who demonstrated their appreciation loudly! We are hugely grateful to Dick Stacey for introducing us to the band, the splendid soloists, Dick Stacey, Rebecca Glanville and James Griffiths, all the men and women of the band and of course, Band Sergeant Major, Peter Elcoat!

Yesterday was the 300th anniversary of the premier of Handel's 'Water Music', which we marked on our historic 'Handel' organ by not playing any Handel at all! But we were convinced that the great man would have approved of the music programme brought to us by Andrew Goodwin - all the way from Llanelli! Andrew's programme was both interesting and enjoyable, and it was great to hear music not often played at Holy Trinity, including two Welsh composers: Thomas Tomkins and William Mathias, and four Welsh folk songs too. Following a fairly quiet, beautifully reflective section from Guilmant and Rowley, the pace quickened and on to a rousing finale with the 'March of the Men of Harlech'. The recital was a clear favourite with the audience who showed their appreciation fully and noisily! A beautiful recital, Andrew, thank you! ... See MoreSee Less

Such dedication to our pleasure deserves our full support so I look forward to welcoming as many of you as can make it on Monday.
Andrew will be playing a variety of pieces from France, England and, of course, Wales, including four famous Welsh songs. It promises to be a lovely recital and I look forward to seeing you - bring your lunch, lean back in your seat and wallow in the indulgence of some beautiful music . . . heaven! PROGRAMME ATTACHED!

Today's EXTRA tea-time concert at Holy Trinity was a great opportunity for us to showcase the amazing talent that is being grown in the Gosport and Portsmouth areas. And no-one went away disappointed! The four young musicians simply enthralled us with their playing of six different instruments: Alex Wilson on the organ, piano and saxophone; Connor Lyster, marimba; Dylan Wilson, violin; and Matthew Tarrant, trumpet. A full house rapturously applauded each young musician for their solo performance and the final ensemble brought the house down! We are grateful to them all for playing for us today, and to Geoffrey Holroyde for accompanying Alex, but special thanks must go to Alex for organising the programme with extraordinary finesse. We very much hope Alex will return for another special concert later in the year . . . ... See MoreSee Less

There can be few better ways to wind down Bank Holiday Monday than by listening to some splendid music played on our wonderful, historic organ - especially when the recitalist is David Cook! David's programme yesterday was well chosen: varied and quite beautiful, ranging from Bach and Handel to someone relatively unknown: William Faulkes, whose music presented us with a fine finale. We are immensely grateful to David for travelling from London to play for us on the Easter weekend and look forward to his return - hopefully in 2019! ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you to Joanna Price for bringing Flautissimo to play for us today; it was a super concert and much enjoyed by the full house who had scorned the sunshine in favour of a musical afternoon. The musical programme was indeed varied: ranging from the hauntingly beautiful 'Benedictus' by Carl Jenkins to the fun of 'Single Yellow Line' and the charming coquettishness of 'Miss Livvy' and on to a great ending from Henry Mancini's film score for 'Pink Panther'. A great afternoon of music, enjoyed by all - thank you to all the flautists and hope to see you again in future programmes! ... See MoreSee Less

Simply spectacular! Peter King's recital today at Holy Trinity Church was indeed, simply spectacular! His programme was bound to please; listening to his playing and watching his performance was a huge treat to all of us who were so fortunate to be there. There were several organists in the audience today (a sure sign of the great esteem in which the recitalist is held); amongst them, at least one had taken a day's leave to hear the recital, another had travelled from Warwick especially and another was visiting from Norway . . . Need I say more? We are hopeful that Peter has fallen for our very special Handel organ and will agree to play for us again - perhaps in 2019! ... See MoreSee Less

Plans for next Sunday's tea-time concert at Holy Trinity Church, began last February - and now it's only one week away! In the intervening year Geoffrey Holroyde has been very busy creating an hour of 'All-English music from five centuries' featuring our very own 'Handel' organ, oboe, trumpets, string quartet and eight voice choir . . . The result will be an hour of wonderful music played and sung by a variety of highly talented people, including two seventeen year old soloists. We know how to celebrate music at Holy Trinity and this concert is going to be very special indeed - not least because it has been developed to pay tribute to the memory of Betty Whetsone who died in January 2016. As always a very warm welcome awaits you - 3.30pm FREE ENTRANCE, retiring collection and refreshments served afterwards!

It was an afternoon that promised much anticipated pleasure and my own expectations were great; I believe all who attended would agree that every promise and every expectation were well and truly fulfilled - excelled even. What a wonderful afternoon of music; it was such a joy to listen to - and indeed watch - Dolce String Quartet (plus Amanda on extra cello) play today. February blues were blown away by music composed by a very young (20) Mendelssohn and all emotions were caught up in Schubert's finest chamber work (considered to be one of the greatest compositions in all chamber music).

Recorders come in all sorts of shapes and sizes (see picture below), and make equally unique sounds, and when the four members of Baroc Ad Hoc combine these with harpsichord, the effect is tremendous.
