The mission of Trinity United Reformed Church is by word and action to live the Good News of Jesus in the Church and in the world
The United Reformed Church (URC)
Our tradition has been around for a few hundred years but in a different guise. The URC, formed in 1972, comprises three different church traditions: Congregational, Presbyterian and Churches of Christ.
Trinity URC Lancaster
We began when several local Congregational and Presbyterian churches joined together. Follow link to the history of our Bowerham Church. We held services at High Street (as well as Bowerham) until 2018, a link to High Street's history can be found here; our High Street Centre had a Conacher and Co Pipe Organ. We are part of a shared pastorate (named FLAG), our sister churches are Garstang and Fortan. Trinity is in the North Western Synod of the URC.
We are an inclusive church, welcoming all people, celebrating Holy Communion monthly at each Centre. We have regular church meetings and an elected body of ordained Elders who, with our minister, share pastoral and leadership responsibilities. We seek to develop ecumenical relationships, being active members of South Lancaster Churches Together.
