Open Church

Open church welcomeWhy?

Trinity’s location on the lower part of Main Street, just opposite TKMaxx, puts it right at the centre of the town’s commercial bustle. Because of this, we open the church building during the week to provide the opportunity to rest and pray – or simply to step back from the busyness of life and be quiet.


The church is open, as often as staffing allows, on weekday mornings (generally Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday). In addition, Open Church on Christmas Eve and Good Friday is now a well-established part of life at Trinity. If you are in Main Street and see the OPEN board out on the pavement, you’ll know there’s a quiet space at Trinity which you can use.


Those staffing Open Church will welcome you and show you into the church, where you will be left in peace. Please feel free to use one of the Bibles in the pews, if you would find that helpful. There are also prayer request cards available, which you can fill in anonymously and leave in a box in the vestibule. These will be passed on to the prayer ministry team, who will be glad to pray about your request.
