Trinity Church Centre (A Brief History) –
‘We’ll go in the strength of the Lord’ is our motto and anniversary hymn, first sung as we left our premises for the massive refurbishment programme to commence, and as we rejoiced when our ‘new church’ was blessed on completion.
Trinity Church Centre began life as several churches – Abbey Methodist, Hawcoat Methodist and Emmanuel URC. Situated on the main road in to the town centre of Barrow-in-Furness, we came together in 1991, in what was the Abbey Methodist building. It underwent massive refurbishment and restyling to provide us with an accessible building, comprising a fully adaptable, upstairs worship area, a lift being available for those who have a need for it. The worship area is set up with an audio visual facility, and there are further meeting rooms off the main room. Downstairs we have a large lounge with coffee bar, large, fully equipped kitchen, and storage, as well as an offset small chapel which is used for evening and occasional services. There are various meeting rooms, and a large multi-use games hall.
Many organisations meet within our premises on a regular basis. We have good links with the WI and the Civic Society, Mother and toddlers, Steelworks Brass band as well as our own bible study, Guiding groups, indoor bowls, badminton and Women on Wednesday. Our monthly coffee mornings are hosted by different groups of the church, and are a vital link with the local community as well as the United Area. At this time a prayer room is available for anyone who wishes to make use of it. Four times a year we hold a ‘Stork sale’ which encourages all ages to come along, and also have coffee available and various stalls. Throughout the year there are a selection of quiz nights, afternoon teas, and opportunities to gather for fellowship and fund raising.
On a Friday morning we meet for a dedicated prayer time, to complement the prayer book which is always available. We also have a small but dedicated Junior Church who enjoy sharing in worship. Along with ordinary morning services, we have a well supported Family Parade each month. There is an evening healing and communion service each month, as well as joint services with the United Area, the nearby Baptist Church, Abbey Group of Churches, and Churches Together in Barrow.
As the largest of the United Area Churches we have played host to visits from Sheffield University Gospel Choir, Adrian Plass, Share Jesus International with ‘Acts Now’, and Toni Vino, as well as local bands and choirs.
We have recently completed a ‘SWOT’ analysis in our Forum meeting, and are working on putting the results in to our action plan.
Trinity Church Centre is part of the South West Cumbria United Area – the Methodist Church and United Reformed Church working together in South West Cumbria.
