Part Played by Trinity Church

Bookmark and Share

Soon after AREA X was announced, a church to show and to share the life of the risen Jesus with the people of Thorpe Marriott was proposed.

Trinity church was founded by the members of Taverham Methodist church led by Denis Fox their lay pastor with the support of the members of Taverham Parish church led by Rev. Robin Hewitson their Rector.

As a Christian community Trinity church is an ecumenical partnership between the Methodist Church and the Church of England. But from the beginning it has
welcomed people from other Christian traditions or none.

The building was opened in 1991 by senior Methodist and Anglican (C of E) church leaders under a Sharing Agreement.

Since then Trinity as a welcoming Christian 'community within community' has been active in Thorpe Marriott within the neighbourhood of Drayton and Taverham.

The people of Trinity Church seek as followers of the Christ Jesus to show and share his just love and life which knows no boundaries.

Trinity's cross is two fence boards. One vertical, one horizontal. Like walls, fences can separate hostile neighbours. But Trinity's cross stands for the end of hostility. Between God and humankind and all kinds of human.

St Paul says 'For Christ himself has brought us peace by making Jews and Gentiles (non Jews) one people. With his own body he broke down the wall that separated them and kept them enemies.'  (Eph 2:14 in context).
