Welcome to Trinity Methodist and The United Reformed Church, Porthcawl.

                                                               

 We hope you find our website informative and helpful. 

We are a friendly community church which holds many local events and weekly meetings of groups as well as regular church services on Sundays. We have very active Support groups within the church including Action for Children and Trinity care and support for carers and young  people with learning difficulties. We also support Traidcraft and are proud to be known as a Fairtrade Church and use fairly traded produce in all events.

There are 10.30 am services every Sunday. 

Tea and coffee are served after the 10.30 service in the hall. ( Not during the Coronavirus Pandemic)

Communion is held on the first Sunday of the month at 10.30am and the second Sunday of the month at 6pm. 

There is also an 8am Communion service on the third Sunday of each month. 

Junior church is held during Sunday morning worship and a special All Ages Family service is held on the second Sunday of the month.
