Welcome to Trinity Methodist Church Croston

Our Church in Croston is a community where everyone is welcome, valued and included. We are drawn together by our love of God and faith in Jesus Christ. We seek to live out our Christian faith by serving  and caring for one another,  and for those in our communities and in the wider world.

We are committed to allowing as many people as possible to access Sunday Morning Worship, and so in the light of the Coronavirus social distancing regulations, we are providing an online pre-recorded All Age weekly service. Please visit our Worship page where you will find a link.

On a Tuesday evening we are gathering together on Zoom to explore and talk about our experiences of God. At the moment we are looking at the witness of the early Church, as found in the Acts of the Apostles. If you would like to join us for informal conversation, please contact [email protected]

News forums advise us that due to Covid 19, many of the commercial aspects of Christmas will not take place in their usual form this Year. And yet, more than ever, we need to proclaim the coming of light into our world amidst the darkness and celebrate the birth of Jesus. And so, we would like to make some suggestions for some corporate activities you might like to engage with, that will hopefully speak to our community and remind us of the continuing love of God and the message of His Son, Jesus Christ. We hope there will be something you will feel able to engage with.

Poetry and Prayer

Many people are accessing our Church website. We would like to invite you to share poems or prayers for the website, that you think might encourage others, either ones you have composed or written by someone else. Please email items to [email protected]

Prayer Garden

We would like to invite you to paint a pebble. We will then use the painted pebbles to create a ‘village prayer garden’ at the front of church, with lolly sticks for people to write a name on for prayer, and then plant in the garden.

Christmas Angels

As a village community we would like to knit small angels, which will be distributed in Croston, in the week before Christmas. The Christmas story is filled with angels bringing joyful messages. We aim to share God’s love and to bless our community, in public and community spaces, with a Christmas message. Please email us if you would like a pattern. We will collect the angels nearer the time, ready for distribution.

On our Prayer page, you will find the opportunity to request prayers.

Our Children and Young People’s Page offers activities, stories and reflections that can be shared by families.

On our Reflections page, you are offered a picture, a verse from scripture and a prayer with which to begin the day.

Please too have a look at the articles on our Community Links and History Page.

If we can be of any help to you as a Church Community,  please feel free to contact us on 07468 518260 or email [email protected].

Every blessing – Rev Sue Guénault

Trinity Church came to the rescue during the Summer of 2020, providing alternative accommodation for Trinity & St Michael’s CE & Methodist Primary School during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The school was delighted to receive such a positive response from Rev Sue and the Church Leadership Team when they requested use of the church buildings. The additional accommodation made it possible for all of the school’s Reception Class children to be offered full-time attendance for the second half of the Summer Term. The School and Church Leadership Teams worked closely to make sure all necessary checks and required CV-19 guidelines were met in order to ensure a safe and happy return to school.

Staff and pupils expressed how they thoroughly enjoyed their time at church, really appreciating its beauty and space, the warm welcome and feeling of togetherness.

Several staff and parents expressed how they felt it would become one of those very special experiences that everyone would always remember.

Trinity Rainbow School certainly delivered Hope during a time of very significant challenge for all.

Miss Hyett made a ‘thank you’ card,

and Frank wrote a very thoughtful message:

Rev Sue presented everyone with a souvenir gift from the church- a beautiful Noah’s Ark book for each child and a Book of Prayer for each member of staff.

Mrs Beatty presented Rev Sue with a souvenir picture from school to remind everyone of the happy and special time enjoyed by all at Trinity Church.
