The intention of our Church is to be a single community for worship, mission and social activity; to respect individual denominations and traditions; and to strengthen inter-denominational bonds.Not to do separately
what can be done together
Trinity Church is a well established, modern, flourishing church with a thriving membership and a wide range of activities within the heart of Lower Earley, Berkshire.
As a congregation we started in 1983. Our premises date from 1987 and have recently been redeveloped and refurbished. You can find out more about how we came into being by reading our history document.
We currently have about 240 worshipping members. We have a welcome leaflet which you can see by clicking here.
Trinity is an ecumenical partnership between the Church of England, the United Reformed Church and the Methodist Church.
But we always meet and worship together as one congregation. Trinity is a Church of England parish in its own right, within the diocese of Oxford.
The church seats 250 worshippers and worship is designed to draw from the riches of liturgy from all three denominations and more widely, with a strong emphasis on involving lively and often modern music. We are working towards an increasing involvement of local lay people in leading worship.
Trinity Church has a defined set of lay officers and a system for decision making, which is organised on several levels including Church Meetings (for decisions), Church Council (for executive management) and a range of specialist committees for different aspects of church life and activities. Stipendiary ministry is provided by the three denominations on a rotating pattern, with each minister in turn serving for a period of about five to eight years.
