The minister is Reverend Professor Teddy Kalongo. It is just over 2 years since he joined us after the retirement of Reverend Paul Floe. Rev Teddy, his wife Amelia and their 4 sons have now settled well into the community.
He is responsible for the pastoral care of Trinity and Superintendent minister for the Bridgend United Area. This is a part of an ecumenical Circuit/Area with other churches. There are two other full time ministers, 9 supernumeraries and 12 lay/local preachers. The four largest churches are joint ecumenical Methodist/United Reformed Church ventures, one of which is also Baptist.
Theologically, Trinity is of the liberal tradition, neither charismatic nor conservative evangelical. There is an "open door" nonjudgmental policy with regard to Baptisms, weddings and Funerals.
The Church organisations are led by Teams, all of whom have a representative on the Church Council/Elders meeting which is chaired by the Minister. They are the managing trustees of the church.
Trinity's Mission is:
To Spread the Good News of God's love in the world.
To encourage people's growth in spirituality and in their understanding of their relationship with God.
To play a caring, serving role in our community.
To actively encourage Christians, from all traditions, to work and worship together.
