We reach out through all of our own local church programmes, and also alongside all those who seek to rescue lives and transform our community in the light of the gospel. We also support a number of agencies who provide care and who witness to the gospel of God’s goodness:
Downtown Churches Together
During the year a number of the downtown churches meet weekly to pray together. We believe that if we are to bring blessing to the Bangor community it will happen when we walk in unity with each other. At present there are six churches meeting on a weekly basis, but our aim is to extend this number so that we move from being the downtown churches to include all the churches in Bangor, or at least the majority of churches in Bangor.
At present we also organize Christian meetings and activities for Holy week (the week before Easter), we share our evening services in July and August and we organize special events and conferences from time to time.
We believe that we are called to be Kingdom builders and that this will only happen when we learn to walk in fellowship together.
Bangor Inter-Church Community Initiative
Bangor Inter-Church Community Initiative (BICCI) is dedicated to enabling Christians of Bangor and the surrounding area, of all denominations, to become collaboratively involved in addressing the needs in the community particularly those who are marginalised and disadvantaged.
The web site, www.ChurchWorksNorthDown.com, provides further information on initiatives undertaken by BICCI such as: Bangor Church Directory, Community Focused Advisory Panel, StoreHouse North Down (Foodbank) etc..
StoreHouse North Down
This Bangor-based food bank partners with many different churches throughout North Down to help individuals and families who find themselves in a crisis situation and require emergency food aid. StoreHouse distributes up to 35 food hampers a week. Trinity members can donate food items by leaving them in the vestibules of the church any Sunday morning or in the Church Office during office hours.
Scripture Union and E3 North Down & Newtownards
- hands-on involvement in assemblies, classes and SU groups at all levels of schools
- the encouragement and training of Christian teachers, senior pupils and volunteers
- the promotion of church-school links
The E3 SU worker for North Down and Newtownards is Rachel Tweedie.
Scripture Union’s E3 initiative continues to grow. Trinity’s support is through financial gifts, prayer and some volunteer help.
A monthly prayer meeting is held so that churches can join together to pray for Rachel, the teachers and the work. It is held in the minister’s office at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Clandeboye Road (entrance through double doors, half way along the side of the church) on the 1st Monday of the month from 10:00 – 11:00am.
