We are alive and online!
During these challenging times, we are grateful that we can continue to meet in for worship using digital technology. We have a programme of Sunday worship services, Bible study and meditation groups to meet virtually from the comfort of your home or wherever you may be on your computer, tablet or phone.
‘Live’ services usually take place at 10.30am on Sunday mornings when the Trinity family join with people from other Methodist churches in the Circuit in Waddington, Chatburn, Whalley and Paythorne. We are using Zoom with a simple link and password provided. A team of volunteers can help you set it up on your device and show you how to access the meetings if you are struggling.
We are developing this facility all the time and learning new ways to be together. Our free-phone dial in service is ideal for those who do not have access to the internet or maybe visually impaired.
Details of the weekly activities and how to access the ‘live’ worship are available here: https://www.clitheroemethodistcircuit.co.uk/notices.htm
Our dedicated video channel has recordings of our services so that you can watch whenever you like. https://vimeo.com/clitheroecircuit

Before Covid-19 …
Worship at Trinity Methodist Church usually takes place every Sunday morning from 10am to 11am with a different local preacher or Minister leading the service on a rota each week. This means that the service styles vary, depending on the person leading the service but generally contain a mixture of modern and traditional worship styles. There’s a lively Sunday School group from tots to teens called Treasure Seekers who usually join in for the first 15 minutes and then leave to take part in their own activities. Once a month there is All Age Worship with musicians when the children stay throughout the service. Everyone is actively encouraged to take bread and wine or receive a blessing during the Holy Communion services if they wish to. It doesn’t matter if you are from a different denomination, whether you are a child or an adult. You don’t need to have been baptised or confirmed. Refreshments are served after the service. At 6pm on a Sunday there’s a quieter, meditative service. Quiet bags are available with toys to distract, though we like children to be seen and heard. There is a deaf loop and a disabled toilet.
