Church in Abingdon

Trinity Church Abingdon

Serving God, serving each other, serving community.

Church Choir

There is no longer an established Choir with rehearsals and singing anthems. However a dedicated group of singers do their best to give a lead in the hymn singing, especially when an unfamiliar tune turns up.

Elders

Serving Elders exercise regular pastoral care over all members and friends who attend Trinity. Each Elder has a pastoral group which he or she visits on a monthly basis to deliver ‘Triangle’ (the church magazine) and through these visits the Senior Elder and Interim Moderator can be alerted to any special need which may require further action.

Evergreens

Members gather on the third Monday afternoon of each month in the Conduit Centre hall for a varied programme of speakers and entertainment. Refreshments are served and transport to and from home can be provided. About one third of the club members attend Trinity for Sunday worship and the remainder come from a wide area of the town so that this is an important part of the church’s outreach in the community.

Friendship Group

A group of ladies who meet once a month, for friendship and support. They have lots of fun, and all are welcome.

Home Groups

A large number of Trinity members and friends are now taking part in Home Groups which meet for a short series of Bible-based discussion around issues relating to a particular theme. There are some 5 groups meeting in various homes, day-time and evening, and the average size of a group is 8 to 10 people.

Prayer Support Group

Some members meet on Friday Morning to support the church and individual in prayers at 10am in the Quiet Room.

Stewards

Church Stewards are in attendance at Services to organise the proceedings. One Steward is there for welcoming and attending on the preacher before and after the service. A second Steward welcomes and attends to the congregation. A third Steward organises the books and service sheets. The role of Steward has grown from the Methodist tradition.

Thursday Group

Held on the second Thursday of the month and starts at 7.30. This is a monthly meeting on Thursday for ladies which is well supported and enjoys a varied programme of talks, visits and craft work, and occasional parties. The group also organises the two Church Fairs which provide very important funds for specific causes. Meetings are either in the Conduit Centre, members’ houses or other venues.

Trinity Triangle

The editors of Trinity Triangle, a monthly magazine about Trinity Church.

Worship Group

A Worship Group meets to share ideas and encourage the diversity of worship and the involvement in worship of more members of the congregation. The group have planned Cafe style services, and services led by the congregation.
