Annual Church Meeting & Elections

Each year, members of the Trinity Family are invited to gather for a time of worship, prayer and reflection. Through our time together, we look at the business side of what it means to run a church and govern well, we celebrate what God has done through the church in the previous year, and we look forward to the next.


APCM 2022 / 22nd May:


Throughout the day, we reflected on the previous year in our celebrations. The business meeting was at 4pm, where we re-elected one member onto the PCC (Helen Moss), and elected another (James Clapp), with a further two spaces being left unfilled. This will be resolved in June, when the PCC will gather and discern who should join out of those who have been nominated and applied for the roles.


As they step down from leadership on the PCC, we want to say a big thank you to Jenny Harris, Alex Metcalfe and Andrew Whittaker who have served us so well over many years. We are so grateful for each of you.


In a large and busy church family it is almost impossible to give a complete summary of all the ways in which people serve. God though sees it all! Here are just a few headlines from the leaders of some of our ministries to give a flavour of the challenges and celebrations of 2021, and hopes into 2022 in the form of a printed review. You can also watch a short video showing some pictures of Trinity life through the last year.




You can find the minutes and accounts from previous years in the 'Resources' section below.

Only church members who are signed up as members of the Trinity ‘Electoral Roll’ can take part in the annual meeting and vote for any changes that need to be made to the governance of the church (e.g. new Churchwardens, Deanery Synod members and PCC Members). If you have been worshipping at Trinity for more than 6 months we would love you to join us in helping to shape all that God is doing here, click below for the online form or email Julia Thomson (details at the end of the page). Please note, if you are already on the Electoral Roll, you do not need to register again. The deadline for 2023 is some time in April 2023, and we will communicate out when that date is confirmed.


Join The Electoral Roll

SERVE

Our church family relies on many different people being led by the Holy Spirit to share their time, gifts and experience in a wider variety of voluntary and paid roles. If you think God might be calling you to serve in one of the below roles ahead of April/May 2023, please see the information sheet below which helps to explain the responsibilities and commitments involved. Please do also have an informal chat with one of our Pastors on a Sunday.
