Minister: Rev Debbie Borda

Tel: 01284 754574


The Church exists to:-

  • Increase awareness of Gods presence and celebrate God's love;
  • Help people to grow and learn as Christians;
  • Be a good neighbour to people in need and challenge injustice;
  • Make more followers of Jesus Christ.

Times of Services: 

Morning Service: 10:00am

Everyone is welcome to our Morning Services.  Creche facilities and activities for older children are available in our specially created corner for families and children.  Our minister leads worship a few times each month, at least once a month there will be Holy Communion.  Otherwise worship will be led by a visiting minister or local (lay) preacher.  Occasionally we will have alternative services such as Cafe Church or Church with Choices.  Do come along and find out for yourself what this is all about!  All are welcome!

Evening Service: Reflective Service at 6:00pm last Sunday of the month.

Wednesday Morning Worship:

Holy Communion

Every first Wednesday of the month, there is a short Act of Worship (about 25 - 30 minutes) during which we share Holy Communion.  This is held in the Lounge at Trinity.  You are all invited to share with us at this special time which may be more convenient for some to come and worship God.

Messy Church - A way of being Church for families involving fun.  Found across the world (ours has a link with a Messy Church in Port Stanley in the Falklands), values are Christ-centred, for all ages and based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.  Second Sunday of the month at 4:00pm with a break for Summer in August. All children are welcome, accompanied by an adult.

July 2020: -

We did Messy Church again at home in July. 

Theme: - "Never Tire of Doing What is Right" - featuring the story of David & Goliath (1 Samuel: 17).

June 2020: -

Our theme in June was: - "Do not fear, just have faith" - Holding on to Jesus when things are really hard. (Luke 8: 40 - 56).  Again, we did Messy Church at home.

May 2020: -

We did Messy Church at home again this month.  The theme was: -

"Eating Together -  Food and Fellowship"

- based on Luke 24: 13 - 35, the story of when the disciples meet Jesus on the Emmaus Road.  

One of our Messy Church children made a group of her friends, whom she misses very much.

Easter Crafts 3

As we were unable to meet at Trinity to celebrate Easter Sunday and Christ's Resurrection this month, we encouraged our Messy Church families to celebrate at home with suggestions for crafts, worship and activities.

Easter Crafts 4



Sunday 8th March, 4:00pm - 6:00pm. 

"Jesus breaks the Rules, shows Compassion and Fairness"

John 8: 1 - 11

Jesus Loves You

One of our children asked his parents who the boss was at Messy Church!  They asked Val Matthews, and she said it was a team effort.  What a great team we had on 8th March.  It was good to have worthwhile chats with everybody.  All aspects worked well and we think we got the message over in the activities and the worship which had hilarious moments. 

A moment to savour for those fortunate enough to see was one of our boys singing every word of One More Step holding his hymn book open with the most angelic choir boy look.  His sister had done the song for a recent music exam so they all knew it by heart! 

On International Women’s Day, some of the girls made an excellent Jesus,  Pharisees and a lawyer.

"Dazzling Disciples"


Genesis 15: 1 - 6 "Look up at the sky and count the stars - if indeed you can count them"







Sunday 12th January - Our January session was a great team effort, in which we were all dazzling disciples!  It was good to have some old friends join us amongst the 35 members of our Messy Church community, children and grown-ups alike!






Trinity Methodist Church is a member of Churches Together in St Edmundsbury and District. We believe in being united in Spirit and Truth, by worshipping and serving our Lord God and Saviour together!  We want to love others as we have been loved, to reach, affect and support the communities that we are in.
