Welcome to Trinity Parish Church

Strathaven Trinity Parish Church was formed in May 2018 from a union of Strathaven Rankin, Strathaven East, Chapelton and Glassford Parish Churches.

We are seeking to inspire the people of Scotland and beyond with the Good News of Jesus Christ through enthusiastic worshipping, witnessing and serving communities.

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.
