Welcome to Trinity Parish Church

Moderator Information

The Rev Norman McKee has been appointed Interim Moderator until the completion of the minister’s Moderatorial duties.

Shaw was preaching at the Scots Kirk in Paris Sunday 07 July at the commemorative service to mark 100 years of Eric Liddell preaching there. (He didn’t take part in any races!)

It was wonderful that some of our members were able to be there.


There is an interview with Shaw taken from Life and Work in the parish Announcements.

What We Do

At our church, we strive to provide a welcoming and inclusive community where individuals can come together to deepen their faith and build meaningful connections with one another. Through our worship services, groups, and events, we offer opportunities for personal growth, spiritual exploration, and service to others. Our mission is to spread God’s love and message of hope to all who seek it, and we are dedicated to creating a safe and supportive environment where everyone can feel valued and appreciated.

As part of the Trinity there are three Sunday Schools which are on during Sunday Services.

Communion service is open to everyone. For more information, please contact the minister.


Sunday Service usually involves singing hymns, reciting prayers, and listening to a sermon.

Special Services include Christmas or Easter, with special hymns, readings, and sermons.

Lectionary Readings provide an opportunity to discuss the relevance of the Bible in modern society.

Live Streams

We live stream our services to provide online access to our congregation and reach out to a wider audience. Not only do we live stream our services, but also post them on our YouTube channel for people to watch at their convenience.
