Trinity United Reformed Church, St Albans

The wider Trinity community

Many community groups meet at Trinity. There is a pre-school in the Lower Hall every morning, and a Day Centre for people with learning difficulties, which was set up by the Revd John Sutcliffe  meets in the Lower Meeting Room (known as the Day Centre Room) every weekday. Various exercise, dance and yoga groups (including Geoff McCann) use the Hall during the afternoons and evenings, and during the International Organ Festival (held every two years in St Albans), competitors use Trinity’s organ for practising.  When the Marguerita Hoare School of Dance hold their children’s classes on a Saturday morning, the people of Trinity run a FairTrade coffee bar which is open to everyone.   A Zimbabwean Church, Forward in Faith, worship at Trinity on Sunday afternoons. Many people hire the halls for children’s birthday parties, concerts or public meetings - see the Lettings Page for details of prices.

A lunch shared between the Trinity Elders and some of the members of Forward in Faith.


Trinity  is an active member of Churches Together in St Albans (CTSA). Every year, CTSA organises an ecumenical service in St Albans Abbey on Good Friday evening - Unity at the Cross. It is led by a different church each year. This year it was Trinity’s turn. Gill Elliott and Janet Brown led the service, which included an act of unity in which people placed ribbons on a sheet flowing from the Cross. Groups of people tied their ribbons together to symbolise their unity.
