We play a central role in the community of Porthcawl and host many events throughout the week as well as our regular services. The St John's Ambulance meet regularly on a Tuesday evening and hold classes. We have also recently purchased a DEFRIBRILLATOR which is located outside the front door and can be used by the general public during an emergency situation.
SINCE MARCH 2020 WE HAVE HAD TO SUSPEND THE FOLLOWING ACTIVITIES BUT HOPE TO RESUME AS SOON AS IT IS SAFE TO DO SO ACCORDING TO GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES.
As a community church we reach out in various ways:
Our Saturday snacks have been very successful over decades!
The card and craft team have their wares on display at both these events and raise funds for Trinity and other charities.
Cameo (Come and meet everyone) is our ladies' group and it is very well supported. It also includes members from the wider community. We meet on the first and third Monday of the month at 7pm. We usually have guest speakers at the meetings and an end of session lunch. There is a small fee of £1.50 per night and we also run a Dutch Auction to raise funds for the speakers' expenses and gifts. We also give this money to various charities that many of our speakers have chosen.
Other ways that Trinity reaches out are through:
Communion services held monthly at two Care homes.
The In Touch magazine delivered about three times a year to our wider group of people who have a connection with Trinity. The Summer (August 2019) issue is now available from Trinity. Please call in if you would like a copy.

In addition our church members are actively helping with:
Action for Children
Tools for Self Reliance
Operation Christmas Child and
Trinity is also very involved with the Porthcawl Churches Together Group and all that is organised throughout the year. This includes joint services, social gatherings and the Christian Aid annual house-to- house collections in the town.
Trinity Care & Support was originally set up and run by Trinity Church for many years. It now operates as an independent charity but is still very much part of the life of Trinity. This Care Club for people with learning difficulties is supported by volunteers from among our church members.
