Trinity is a Town Centre church, which welcomes a 50 plus congregation on a Sunday morning.  Everyone is welcome. Creche facilities and activities for older children are available on Sunday mornings.  Our minister leads worship a few times each month.  Holy Communion usually takes place on the first Sunday in the month.  Otherwise worship will be led by a visiting minister or local (lay) preacher.  After worship we meet for refreshments and fellowship in the hall downstairs.

Morning Service: 10:00am.

Evening Service: Reflective Service at 6:00pm last Sunday of the month.

Accessibility at Trinity:-

The Methodist Church wishes to be an environment where all feel welcome and cared for. In order to allow for widest possible access, this church has the following facilities available:

  • Wheelchair Accessible Access
  • Accessible Toilet
  • Loop
  • Large Print
  • Braille

On Sunday 19th May, we came to celebrate all that God has given to us as we praised God at one of our occasional special services, "Church with Choices".  We started our service together with our minister, Rev Debbie Borda.  Then we had the choice as to how we would like to celebrate our praise of God in different parts of the building.  We had the following options on offer:-

  • Lounge - Reflecting through the Newspapers;
  • Sanctuary - Bible Study;
  • Hall - Prayer Stations.

This day we praised God with singing and music, some old hymns and some new, however our worship was about praising God our Saviour.

NEW! From Wednesday 3rd April at 10:30am, there will be a short service in the Coffee Lounge, which will include the act of Holy Communion.  This will take place on the first Wednesday of every month.  Please do join us as we share in this special time.

We have a range of activities during the week and various types of community involvement as we seek to love and serve Christ together.  Please see "What's On" and "Regular Activities" at Trinity on our website.  In "What's On" you will find links to some of the groups who use our church premises during the week for more information.

House Groups meet for Bible Study, fellowship, discussions and refreshments.  In February this year, as both our existing House Groups were growing, we decided to establish two new groups to cater for this increased demand.  Our House Groups meet on alternate weeks, the second and fourth week in each month with a break for August.  Details can be found in our weekly notices. 

  • Monday Mornings - 10:30am at Eastgate House;
  • Tuesday Evenings - 7:30pm in a number of different homes;
  • Thursday Mornings - 10:45am for 11:00am in the Trinity Church Lounge;
  • Thursday Evenings - 7:30pm in different homes.

All are Welcome to join any of these groups.  Please contact David Wakeford for further information.  Tel: 01284 787660.
