Following advice from the Government and United Reformed Church, we have suspended public worship until further notice, and other activities of the church have ceased in order to prevent the wider circulation of the Covid-19 virus.
Whoever you are, wherever you are coming from you are welcome at Trinity.
Please use the contact details given here to get in touch with us during this time.
We look forward to seeing and hearing from you. You may be church member, a friend or visitor.
You may have recently moved into the area and are looking for a friendly church where you can worship.
Perhaps you are planning a wedding, a christening, or a funeral service for a loved one.
Or you may want to find out more about our excellent facilities for hire.
Whatever your circumstances, you are most welcome at Trinity church.
The main business of this Assembly was worship and the inductions of Assembly-appointed officers. Namely, the Revd Dr John Bradbury as URC General Secretary, and the Revd Clare Downing and Peter Pay as Moderators of the General Assembly.
The event included contributions from ecumenical partners, including Hannah Brock Womack who was prevented from taking up her Fourth Presidency with Churches Together England due to being in a same-sex marriage, and the Revd Dr Barbara Glasson, former President of the Methodist Conference.
The URC also held a digital version of Mission Council – the executive body of General Assembly – on 10 July. Items discussed included: the URC’s safeguarding strategy 2020-2025, pastoral supervision following the outcomes of the Past Case Review Learning Report, and the future of Walking the Way: Living the life of Jesus today, the URC’s focus of lifelong missional discipleship.
Please join us for a few minutes each Wednesday, between noon and 2pm, to pray with the Trinity community.
Pray for our community of Trinity, as we support one another through group meetings, such as the virtual coffee morning, and through individual personal contacts.
Pray for those who have lost their jobs and are now facing what may be an extended time of unemployment.

Jesus told a story about a sower; it’s a parable that points to God who is Lord of soil and seed alike. So how does your garden grow?
Our service is led by Revd Dominic Grant; the Bible readings are Matthew 13.1-9, 18-23 and Isaiah 55.10-13.
With thanks to Andrew our director of music, with soloist Grace and Trinity’s choir; to Elizabeth our Bible reader; to Christine who leads our prayers of concern; and to Sarah for our Junior Church resources.
Please aim, if possible, to start watching the video at 11am on Sunday so that, even in our separation, we can be sharing together in worship. However if that’s not possible or convenient for you, do make use of the video at whatever time suits! If you would like to follow the text of the service, you can read/download it by clicking here.
