The Parishes of

Holy Trinity, Pelton

& St. Paul's, West Pelton













Ministry at Holy Trinity and St. Paul's


Sunday School

Every Sunday we offer an opportunity for children to learn more about Jesus, get to know one another, and have fun together.  This happens during the Sunday service.  It is staffed by a committed and capable group of volunteers.

Bible Studies and Study Groups

We run regular study groups on a wide variety of topics.  From Bible studies, to basic theology and movie discussion groups.  They are all intended to help you grow in your faith, make new friends, and find encouragement in prayer and fellowship.  We have run, to name a few, the ALPHA course, Freedom in Christ, The Why Course, START, Jesus the New Way, Living Faith, and a video discussion course on The Da Vinci Code.

Work in local schools

John goes into many of the local schools regularly to do assemblies and to talk with the children about Jesus.

Seasonal Activities

These activities are always changing as new ideas come in but there are some regular ones worth mentioning.  During Christmas we go caroling around various neighbourhoods handing out leaflets and inviting people to join us in Church.  We also give a portion of our parish income to designated charities which are agreed upon at the beginning of each year at our Parish Church Council meetings.  During harvest we give an offering of food resources to the People's Kitchen in Newcastle and are enthusiastic supporters of the Christmas Shoebox appeal.
