Worshipping God and Welcoming All
Trinity Church is a caring church with a love of spending time with God in worship and spending time with others – friends from church and the local community; whoever comes our way!
We believe that God loves each and every person, and that following Jesus is the best way we can live our lives. We are inspired by his acts of love and care, his words of wisdom, and his willingness to go to the cross. We are helped by the Holy Spirit to be faithful in our response to God’s love and Jesus’ resurrection by trying to love and serve others.
Trinity Church sits within two mainstream Christian denominations – the Methodist Church and the United Reformed Church. It is an amalgamation of both, a “Local Ecumenical Partnership”.
Our services are mainly traditional in shape; we use fresh accessible language and a variety of hymns and songs. We also offer alternative styles of worship, including all-age, contemporary or Taize. Sometimes we hold café style worship in the lounge.
Trinity Church runs a range of activities for all ages, including a thriving toddler group, monthly activities for children, a weekly community café, a foodbank (affiliated to the Trussell Trust), and various social and leisure groups.
Our building is widely used by the local community and hosts Cheadle School of Dancing, among other organisations.
Mission, Vision And Values
Inspired by God’s love and Jesus’ mission, to create a supportive community of worship and prayer, serving the community and planting seeds of faith.
In our service of God and the church we choose to work together with a positive attitude to create a supportive environment of love and care and listening, displaying the Christian values of respect, grace, tolerance, forgiveness and openness.
Trinity Church is led by an ordained Methodist Minister. We currently share a part-time Children and Young Families Worker with Cheadle Hulme Methodist Church but hold a vacancy for this part-time role (to be reviewed in 2023)
Louise has been the minister of Trinity since 2013. She has previously served in Cardiff and Newport, and loves visiting Wales; she loves playing her flute and ballroom dancing (not at the same time!)
A number of church members serve as “Church Councillors” - also trustees - to oversee the running of the church, and a team of Pastoral Visitors ensure everyone is cared for. A host of volunteers run our activities
A Brief History of Trinity

Trinity Church follows the Methodist Safeguarding Policy:
It is the Methodist Church’s intention to value every human being as part of God’s creation and the whole people of God. At the heart of the Methodist community is a deep sense of the place of welcome, hospitality and openness, which demonstrates the nature of God’s grace and love for all.
Our church communities are called to be places where the transformational love of God is embodied and life in all its fullness is a gift, which is offered to all people.
