40 Years of Trinity

May 27th 2018 marked 40 years since URC and Methodist churches in Abingdon joined to form Trinity Methodist / URC Church.

In 1968 the Abingdon Congregational / URC Church came to share worship in the same building as Trinity Methodist Church. They maintained their separate organisations for the next ten years then in  1978 Sharing agreements were signed and the two congregations united as Trinity Church.

In the recording alongside (from the May 27th Trinity Sunday Service) the history of the two churches are told.

Trinity Church Fair - 30th June 

Trinity Church Hall was the location for the traditional summer fair with Jewellery, Cakes, bric-a-brac, books, toys, a raffle, lots of marmalades, chutneys, jams, cakes, crafts, cards and refreshments. 

It raised nearly £900 for church funds. Thankyou to all who helped and went along.

It was also a chance to sit down and chat over a bowl of strawberries and cream.

Trinity Toddlers 30th Anniversary

Trinity toddlers celebrated their 30th anniversary in July 2017. A big thankyou was said to all the helpers past and present. Helpers provide support for all the mums, dads, grandparents, carers and children who come. A special mention was made to the longest serving volunteer, Marjorie Wallis, who has helped ever since the group started. She continues to help every week on the welcome desk.

The group starts back on the 14th September after the summer holidays.
