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 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.
The following events are planned for 2020:
6th January- Dutch Auction
20th January - Life with Orang-utans, by Julie Smith
3rd February- talk by Bev Gully, immigration officer.
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 (August 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. Please see the Ministry page for details of the Churches together week of prayer for Christian Unity which is starting on 19th January.
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.
