Who we are

Our Vision 

Jesus says “I am the vine, you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit. Apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5). In light of this our vision is for Trinity Church to be:

“One church family rooted in Jesus and fruitful for him”

 

Three priorities, all equally important, undergird this central vision: 
 

- 1. Belonging to the family of Jesus

As disciples of Jesus who belong to him, we also belong to each other. We are called to show this through deep, loving, open relationships. 
 

- 2. Growing in relationship with Jesus

As branches attached to the vine, we are called to remain in Jesus in a growing, personal relationship with Him. We know God as our Father, enjoying fellowship with Him in prayer through the Holy Spirit. We know Jesus as Lord, expecting him to impact every area of our lives as the Holy Spirit speaks his Word, the Bible, into our lives, and empowers our joyful obedience.
 

- 3. Joining with the mission of Jesus

 

Jesus is at work extending his kingdom of light and grace before he comes again to renew all things. He does this through his Spirit-empowered people witnessing to him in word (sharing the gospel) and deed (living lives of love and service). Joining in with this mission is central to our calling and purpose as God’s people.
 

As we pursue these priorities, our goal is to be increasingly 'one church family rooted in Jesus and fruitful for him.'
 

What we believe

 

Our theological convictions are well summarised by the Church of England Evangelical Council statement of faith.

Our Story
 

For 175 years Trinity Church has been rooted at the heart of the Henley community

we are called to serve. From this place, Jesus has been proclaimed, the Bible has been taught, the Spirit has brought many to new life in Christ, and disciples of every age have been loved and nurtured. Over those years, significant connections with our community

have also been forged.

 

Part of Trinity’s recent history has been the launching of Trinity at Four in 2018. Trinity at Four is a congregation of Holy Trinity, but has been run largely independently, and for the past three years has met at Christ Church rather than Holy Trinity. We praise God that under his gracious hand, Trinity at Four has reignited ministry to families and children, and re-engaged many with the good news of Jesus.

 

We are approaching an exciting new chapter in this story: in September 2024, after 35 fruitful years as the Vicar of Holy Trinity, Duncan will hand this role over to Sam, our Trinity at Four Minister. Sam will become Vicar, and Duncan will remain in a supportive role for a further nine months or so before his retirement around May 2025. So from September 2024, Holy Trinity and Trinity at Four will be brought together under the same leadership. This presents a wonderful opportunity for us to become one church family together, whilst retaining 10am and 4pm services.

 

In it all, our great desire is that together we might be one church family rooted in Jesus and fruitful for him; that Trinity would be a home for us all, and a hub from which the good news of Jesus rings out in Henley and beyond.
