Welcome to the Website of
Hillsborough Trinity Methodist Church
Hillsborough Trinity Methodist Church is in the Sheffield Circuit which is part of the Sheffield District.
The church is opposite the Bowling Green in Hillsborough Park.
We are a friendly church meeting every Sunday for worship and regularly during the week for fellowship. We aim to support and build links with the community through a number of different activities that take place throughout the week.
The church also supports Fair Trade by serving Fair Trade Coffee and Tea. In addition to that there is a stall selling Fair Trade products on most Sundays after the Morning Service.
Christmas at Hillsborough Trinity
Christmas morning service at Hillsborough this year included the dedication of our beautiful new sanctuary furniture, which arrived a couple of days ago.
This completes the transformation of the church space into a modern multi-purpose open space, for worship and other activities.
(The colour of the wall in reality matches the colour of the carpet, honestly!)
Trinity has always had a collection of items of furniture from various gifts and closures over the years, so the final element in the transformation of the church space was to commission a matching set of furniture.
We had it made in Thirsk in Yorkshire, to our own designs, in oak, and so it will be the only one of its kind.
We will be able to use the two former lecterns in other places in the building.
Four members of the congregation each read a Christmas reading and said a prayer, specifically about one of the items of furniture:
· Sheila for the Trinity leaders prayed about our communion around the table and into the neighbourhood;
· Ellen for the Trinity young people stood at the font and read and prayed about the children of the future and our welcome to them;
· Liz for the Carlton Road congregation stood at the lectern and read and prayed about lessons from the bible and other wise writings that we will hear from the lectern, and
· Doreen for the Birley Carr congregation stood at the preaching desk and read and prayed that the Word will be spoken from this desk, and we might hear and live the Word in our own lives.
It was a happy and moving service, which drew together the elements of our lives together.
We ended with a blazing rendition of “Come and join the celebrations!”
We stood in a circle round the new font, whose oak and steel represent the life and history of Sheffield, and shared the blessing with each other, and then joined in the photo.
It feels like we have now completed stage one of the transformation of our church into the 21st century.
On Sunday 16th November Hillsborough Trinity Re-Dedicated the Worship area! We also officially welcomed members from Carlton Road URC, commissioned Kerry Bentley the new Church Community Worker. We were sung to by the Karen Choir and Hillsborough Trinity Choir. Our District Chair Rev'd Gill Newton preached and David Blunkett MP shared a message with us. It was a good day of celebrations as we opened up the church to the community to come have a look around and share lunch with us.
S6YN Light Party!
On 25th October Hillsborough Trinity hosted the S6YN (Ecumenical Youth Network run by the Churches in the S6 Area) Light Party. We played games, carved positive pumpkins, had glow in the dark worship, thought about being light and saints in the world and ate lots of tasty soup!
Photos from the Summer Holiday Club
At Holiday Club we thought about our world. We did lots of crafts around animals, birds, plants and creepy crawlies, we thought about the story of Noah's Ark, we did some gardening, played games and with the parachute, had our faces painted and lots lots more! Look out for our Easter Holiday Club in Holy Week next year!
