About Trinity Church

The History of the church is short. In 1967 there were three non-conformist churches in Honley; High Street Methodist, Southgate Methodist and Moorbottom Congregational.

During that year the British Council of Churches instituted a project called “The People Next Door” . This brought members of the three churches closer together in house group fellowships and provided the impetus for the unification which was to follow

In December 1968 it was agreed (with only two votes against) that the churches should unite and that the premises at Moorbottom would be most suitable for the new church.

On Sunday September 7th 1969 there was a service of covenant and Commitment at Trinity Church.

The Church still has many members who were founder members of Trinity Church and new members are always welcome.

We are an active church and you will find details of the many activities on the following pages. A monthly newsletter is available and if you would like to look at the latest copy please click on the appropriate link.

We are always pleased to have visitors, so if you are in the area on holiday, or with friends or simply seeking shelter and peace, you are very welcome
