Trinity Bangor


Trinity is situated on Main Street Bangor, just opposite T K Maxx. We are part of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland. The churches in Bangor work very well together and Trinity has been at the centre of local church cooperation.


Trinity is an evangelical church with a biblically based theology.

We aim to be a caring community in Bangor with an emphasis on prayer being at the centre of all we seek to do.


Following a year of special focus on prayer in 2015/6 and a recent examination of our strengths, weaknesses and opportunities, we have a sense of emerging vision, described by our answers to the following questions.

What is our heart for Trinity going forward?

“Our mission is to be a faith community of disciples – who want to become more like Jesus and to introduce other people to Him”

How can we achieve our mission?

“By exploring how we can spend time with Jesus in a way that makes us more like Him, as a springboard to developing missional attitudes and practices.”


Church is not a building; the building is there to accommodate the church which is made up of people. So Trinity is a collection of people who join together in our church building to worship God and spread the good news of the Gospel to our community and beyond.

If you need to contact any of our leaders, please make contact with our Church Office and we will respond as quickly as possible.
