We aim to be a community that is friendly and welcoming and many newcomers comment on this, but we are a large church and rely on everyone to be a friendly face so that those who come to Trinity for the first time feel that, in the words of a favourite hymn, “all are welcome in this place”.
Periodically newcomers are invited to meet together with the minister and deacons following the morning service when light refreshments are provided. The purpose of this meeting is to enable people to meet informally and to hear about the various activities available in the church.
Members and adherents of the church are allocated a Pastoral Link - someone who will keep in touch, especially if you are unwell and unable to get to church, and let our minister know of any particular needs.
We have over 30 people who serve as Pastoral Links, and together with the Pastoral Committee they are responsible for keeping the minister up to date with news of the people in the congregation.
There is plenty of opportunity to get to know one another :-
we chat together over coffee and tea after morning service;
there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in helping with church activities such as serving coffee, greeting people at the door, arranging flowers etc.;
we work together in support of various charities and campaigns - see the Action section of this site for information;
we have groups for all ages and many interests - see the Groups section of this site for details; and
we relax and enjoy walks and outings periodically on Sunday afternoons - see the News and Events section including the calendar.
