“But the time is coming – it has, in fact, come – when what you’re called will not matter and where you go to worship will not matter. It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth.”
John 4:23-24 The Message
Trinity Methodist Church is focussed on being an inspired worshipping community.
We are made up of diverse people from all backgrounds and cultures, but we hold firm to the truth that we are all children of God, loved and loving in return. We do not exclude anyone from joining us in worship and are always open to engaging with everyone.
No matter where you are in life or in your spiritual journey, there is a place for you at Trinity.
We believe that Sundays are an incredibly important time in the life of a church because we are gathered together as one community. The very act of gathering for worship makes it clear that we are here to worship God in the Linden and Surrounds area. As such, we strive to have inspired and passionate worship in both the Church and Chapel which allows the Spirit of God to move in the lives of everyone who attends.
We offer five unique and well planned services to meet the worshiping needs of a diverse and engaged community.
Join us on a Sunday to “Worship the King and Grow the Kingdom.”
Home Groups and Class Meetings
The founder of the Methodist Church, John Wesley, knew that worshiping together on a Sunday was an important time of community, preaching and teaching, but he also encouraged everyone who gathered to worship on a Sunday to deepen their own walk with God through gathering in small groups. At Trinity we say: “Good things come in small circles”.
John Wesley called these small groups Class Meetings, but at Trinity Methodist Church they go by a few different names – Class Meetings, Bible Study, Home Groups, Holistic Small Groups and Support Groups. Even though they go by different manes, they all have the same purpose: to regularly join together fellow believers to share life, be accountable for the work God is doing in you, help each other and to journey personally with God.
Third Term Teaching
For those members of Trinity Methodist Church who want to learn more about what it means to live Christianity in their daily lives and deepen their own spiritual journey we have an annual set of teachings during the third school term. These ‘Third Term Teachings’ cover many different topics, some more practical (e.g. parenting workshops, how to read the Bible, etc.) and others designed to engage with you spiritually (Understanding the Holy Spirit, Manna and Mercy, etc.)
Sermons and Testimonies
Each one of us has a story to tell. One of the exciting ways we assist different people in our church to express the way in which God is working in their lives is through sharing a testimony. There are hundreds of testimonies shared each week in small groups and over tea after services – people telling others how God has touched them that week, but occasionally we ask someone to write down or record or share in a Sunday service how the Holy Spirit has moved in their life.
Not only does it encourage others when they hear your story, but it also helps many people to fully understand the ways in which God is at work in the details of their life.
