Trinity Church is a family of people, 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 and come together to create a unique expression of the church. We seek to honour those roots as we help people to explore spirituality in new and creative ways.
The Trinity community is served by our building on Gosforth High Street, which is not only a physical presence and a gathering place for worship, but also a focal point for the whole of the surrounding community through the provision of a Community Centre and Cafe.
With transformation as our aim, and with relationships as a key focus, all that we do at Trinity is built around helping people to ‘Meet God, Make Friends, Live Life’.
Meet God– ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind.’ Matthew 22: 37
We believe that we are not only called to love God, but because of His love for us we can meet with Him. In worship, but also in our daily lives as followers of Jesus. As a Church we want to find ways of enabling that to happen for all people.
Make Friends– ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ Matthew 22: 39
When we experience the love of God for us then we are changed, step by step, part of that change is we want to look outwards and share that love
Jesus is saying that when we love God, loving our friends should follow on. He talks here about building quality relationships with people around us, honouring them and serving them. This gives our life an ‘inward’ dimension. ·
Live Life– ‘Therefore go and make disciples of all nations.’ Matthew 28: 19
Jesus leaves His followers with a task…to introduce others to Jesus and help them to follow him. This gives our faith and relationships an outward focus, always seeking to live in such a way as to make a difference in the world. This gives our life an ‘outward’ dimension.
