Holy Trinity churchwarden, Don Glassey.
HISTORIC Holy Trinity Church, Ryde, closes its doors for the final time on Sunday, January 26.
The 9.15am service will mark the end of the Dover Street church for use for Church of England services.
A day earlier, a service of thanksgiving for the life of the church will be held there, at 4.30pm.
The carol service will be held on Sunday, at 6.30pm, and on Christmas Eve, there is a service at 11.30pm. There is also a 9.15am Christmas Day service.
The Church of England decided to close Holy Trinity because of dwindling congregations despite a campaign to save it.
Churchwarden Don Glassey, a worshipper there for 43 years, said: "It will be very sad for the community to lose Holy Trinity."
The church was built in 1845 to the design of architect, Thomas Hellyer, and is one of the twin landmark spires of Ryde.
