Trinity Bangor

Trinity is situated on lower Main Street Bangor, on the right as you walk down the hill towards the marina. We are part of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland.


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.”

Emerging from the years during which the global pandemic upended all of life, we again took the opportunity to undergo an extensive review of our sense of priority.


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.
