Welcome to Trinity Free Church

What will you be doing on 31st October?

Recent tradition is to celebrate all things dark and spooky...but that seems, to me at least, to be an excuse for a party and for the supermarkets to fleece us again!

I hope you will forgive my dissing these things; I do so because there is something so much more wonderful to celebrate at this time of year.  500 years ago, on October 31st, an Augustinian monk by the name of Martin Luther nailed 95 theses to the church door in Wittenburg, Germany.  Little did he know he was about to change the whole of Europe and the world and would spark a movement which is still going strong today

Luther just wanted a debate about how you get to Heaven, and his 95 sentences were the opening exchange.  What followed drew whole countries and continents into the question, ‘Can you buy your way to Heaven or is it by believing in Jesus Christ alone?’  The result is known as the Protestant Reformation which resulted in the birth of new and vibrant Bible-centred churches.

These churches today still hold that the Bible’s teaching must be more important than any church tradition.  And so we proclaim that great Bible teaching found in the words of Jesus (John 14:6), that He is "way and the truth and the life" and no-one comes to the Father except through Him.  Now that is glorious Good News!  As the nights get darker and longer we remember the wonderful light and the amazing truth, that however dark and difficult this world may be and feel, our lives can be rescued for this glorious future in Heaven with Jesus, and we can know His life and goodness right now.

Why not come and join us in one of our celebrations for lively worship and fantastic fellowship

We meet every Sunday at 10:30am and again in the evening at 6:30pm.  

Services last between 60 & 90 minutes and refreshments follow the morning service.
