TRINITY CHURCH stands on Derby Street, Leek's main shopping thoroughfare. Most Wednesday, Friday and Saturday mornings, the church buzzes with life as dozens of people come to meet their friends and enjoy a cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate. Every day, church folk are active in many aspects of civic life: sport, music, environment, community projects and public service.

A weekly Traidcraft Stall is available on Wednesdays and on the 1st Saturday of each month when a variety of fairly traded goods are available. This is staffed by volunteers from various churches in the town.

The church's aim is to be an open and affirming community, where people with various backgrounds, beliefs and life-styles are welcome. Though Trinity is a joint congregation of the United Reformed and Methodist Churches, people from many Christian backgrounds have found a home there. The Church operates within the Staffordshire Moorlands Circuit and the West Midlands Synod of the United Reformed Church.

The church is housed in a 19c Congregationalist building, which was extensively refurbished in the 1980's and in 2011 to make it more accessible and flexible and to bring the facilities up to modern standard.

Trinity Church participates in 'Churches Together in Leek and District' helping to make Leek a strong ecumenical town. It also shares services regularly with St. Edward's Church of England, the town's ancient parish church.

Services are held every Sunday at 10.30am and 6 pm (or 6.30pm, when shared with St Edward's). Once a month there is a Service of Holy Communion at 9.15am. Details of each week's Services are displayed in the front of the Church.

Sunday Club meet on Sunday mornings when young children get together to have fun and to discover the
meaning of a Christian way of life. There is also a creche for babies and very young children who can be cared for during the Service.

During school term times on Friday mornings the lower hall is bustling with Mums and Babies/Toddlers enjoying and hour and a half of friendship and play.

More information about the church can be obtained from the office on Wednesday and Friday mornings (01538-398483), the Church Secretary, John Fisher on 01538 373860 email:- johnfisher@uwclub.net
