Minister – Revd Dominic Grant
As Trinity’s Minister, I share with the Elders in leadership and pastoral oversight of the congregation. On Sundays that usually sees me preaching and conducting worship. On weekdays, it means spending time with people from the church and elsewhere: sometimes in teams or committees, sometimes for prayer or Bible study, and sometimes to offer pastoral care to individuals in need.
In all these activities, it’s my aim to reflect Trinity’s calling and commitment not just to look after its own, but to engage positively with the community in which we’ve been placed. I’m eager to nurture vibrant relationships with Trinity’s neighbour churches, and I relish the opportunity for us to develop creative partnerships with all who are working for the wellbeing of Wimbledon and its people.
Associate Minister – Reverend Ernest Yu
In 2003 Trinity United Reformed Church called the Reverend Ernest Yu to become an Associate Minister, with the primary commitment to wider work within the Chinese community. Ernest has been able to use Trinity as a base to bring the gospel to the local people and Chinese people mainly in the south of England and he has built a lively Chinese congregation which meets separately during the second half of the Sunday morning service.
His ministry involves teaching, preaching and pastoral visits in homes and hospitals, and visits to detainees in Immigration Removal Centres. He helps non-English speaking Chinese with translations and may accompany them to attend various hospital or clinic appointments. Ernest is also invited to preach in other Chinese churches since they often do not have their own preachers or ministers.
