Visitors and newcomers are always warmly welcomed at Trinity services. There is an easy sloping pathway to the main entrance of the church which affords access. The church is fitted with an induction loop for hearing aid users. There are boxes of toys for toddlers in the Welcome Area to which the service is clearly relayed enabling parents to stay with their small children if they wish.

10.30 am Family Worship, Junior Church and Holy Communion

Children and young people worship with the adult congregation for 20 minutes or so and then move to the hall to continue their activities in Junior Church. Visiting children are welcome to go over to Junior Church. For All-Age services and on special occasions (eg Harvest, Easter, Parade services) the children and young people remain for the whole service. The Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated each month.

Guest preachers are invited for services on special topics or themes eg mission. Members of the congregation participate in every service by reading the lessons.

We have a Choir that give a musical lead in worship.

Each week members of the congregation bring gifts of tinned food, groceries and household or personal items which are then dedicated with the offertory and subsequently distributed to various local centres for homeless people.

Following the service everyone is welcome to stay on for a friendly chat. Coffee and tea are served in the church. There is a Bookstall in the Welcome area, and once a month there is a Traidcraft Stall in the Welcome Area.

6.30pm Evening Worship, Holy Communion

On the last Sunday of the month, there is a celebration of Holy Communion at Trinity. United evening services with All Saints, Abingdon have become a frequent event on the other Sundays. Joint services with all the churches in Abingdon happen two times a year, and Trinity members join neighbouring churches to celebrate special occasions in the Christian calendar eg Prayer for Christian Unity, Christian Aid Week, Advent.
