Trinity Church Centre is still here – just differently

 CLOCKS GO FORWARD next weekend – DON’T FORGET!

 In the light of the latest announcement from the government we can no longer open our church on Sunday mornings for those who want to come to reflect and pray quietly.

 We do have Worship at Home sheets though. These contain prayers, hymns, Bible readings and reflections, for the next three Sundays. We are using them at home on Sunday mornings at 11am, our usual service time. In this way we can be ‘together whilst apart’. If you haven’t got these sheets, but would like a copy, please get in touch

—————————————————————

 There’s a lot of help, support and advice out there to help us through the coronavirus pandemic. Here are a few of them

 Did you know that there’s a Support Hub in Barrow offering advice, support and practical help for people who are self-isolating? It doesn’t offer any medical advice.

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, 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.

On a Thursday mornings 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. We have All Age and Parade services once a term.  There is an evening healing service each month and also a monthly reflective act of worship using words, music, images and silence to aid our reflection.  We also have joint services with the United Area, the nearby Baptist Church, the Barrow Mission Community and Churches Together in Barrow and District.
