About Us

SundayWorship-1024x768.jpg

Trinity Church is a community of people, diverse in many ways but centred around Jesus, working together towards a common vision and mission. It was formed by the uniting of three congregations on the High Street of Gosforth in 2000 and has grown into a vibrant and welcoming community.

We have roots in both the Methodist Church and United Reformed Church. We seek to honour those roots as we explore spirituality and life as followers of Jesus in new and creative ways.

Trinity is based at Trinity Centre on Gosforth High Street, where our building is not only a place of worship but a Centre for all the local community, with various meeting rooms, and the popular Caffe 1901. We also have Trinity Christian Community Centre on Freeman Road.

Our Vision

We are inspired by a vision of a world transformed by the love of God in Jesus Christ through the work of the Holy Spirit: a world of peace and abundant life for all.

Our Mission

Meet God
‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind.’ Matthew 22: 37

When we meet for worship, to pray and to listen to the Bible, we experience that God comes and meets with us. But we also experience God meeting with us at other times, for example in the beauty of nature or through people we meet. 

 

Make Friends
'
Love your neighbour as yourself.’ Matthew 22: 39

Jesus called a community of friends to be with him, learn from him and live his kind of life. We find that life is better when we do it together, as he did. We find support and inspiration, learning from each other how to live the life of Jesus today.

 

Live Life
‘I came that you might have life, and have it abundantly.' John 10.10

Following Jesus is not about a set of beliefs but about living life - a new kind of life that Jesus modelled and that he makes possible for us through the gift of the Holy Spirit. We want to put the love of God into practice so that the world becomes more the way God wants it to be. That's why we get involved in social justice, why we're an Eco-Church, why we make all sorts of opportunities for people to meet, why we provide quality space for our local community in our Centres - it's why we do what we do. We want to be good news, as we Meet God, Make Friends and Live Life.

We're not claiming to be a perfect church. We are pilgrims on a journey, exploring together what it means to follow Jesus in Gosforth in 2022. Why not join us?
