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.
As a community church we reach out in various ways:
Our Saturday snacks have been very successful over decades! Come and join us on a Saturday morning!
The more recent Tuesday coffee morning also attracts people from the town, including many visitors from the Seabank.
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.
Our Mums and Toddlers has very active and lively members and provides an excellent support group in our town. They start at 9.30 every week during the school term time and our church hall is full of fun and laughter as well as toys, babies, toddlers and families. The children have a drink and snack while the parents have a chat.
Rainbows, Brownies and Guides are run by Trinity members and are encouraged to take part in the Family Services. The Brownies group in particular are actively seeking new members.
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 2019 issue is now available from Trinity. Please call in if you would like a copy.
Trinity's Facebook and this website.
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.
Churches Together have been invited to an outdoor Hog Roast on Friday 9th August from 5.30 onwards. This will be at Our Lady Star of the Sea in New Road. It is to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of that church. Tickets are £6 and a list of names is in Trinity foyer. Please decide by 16th July. There will be a variety of other food provided but it's a "bring your own drink" evening. Glasses are provided!
Trinity in Trecco
Trinity will be holding a service at St Mary's in Trecco on Sunday 11th August at 12.30. They will also be organising various activities throughout the week of 5th to 9th August between 2 and 4 pm. Anybody wishing to help and support us is very welcome and there is a list of names in the church Foyer.
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.
