Trinity Methodist Church (Blaydon)

Trinity Methodist Church (TMC) Mission Statement
Our mission is to bring others towards Christ as we show kindness to others, and share the message of the hope that Jesus gives. We do this through investing in people and projects that directly share the message of Christ. This includes being hospitable, welcoming and meeting the needs of the local communities

Trinity Methodist Church (TMC) is based in the centre of Blaydon opposite the new Upper Morrisons Car Park. It is a relatively small congregation but is very friendly and caring with a passion for helping the local community. We have a large church upstairs (accessed from Lucy Street) and a large downstairs hall (accessed via Shibdon Road entrance) as well as a smaller Chapel Room (also accessed via Shibdon Road entrance.

TMC has a variety of worship services each month.
Sunday morning services are held at 10:45. On the 1st, 2nd, 4th & 5th Sundays this is a more traditional style service which is usually held in our smaller chapel room downstairs.   
On the 3rd Sunday of each month we hold our Cafe Church Service. This is a more informal service which is suitable for all ages and for people who have been coming to church for a long time or are simply looking for a way to explore the Christian faith. We begin at 4pm with food and refreshment while we discuss faith.

TMC takes our call as disciples to support our local community very seriously and this is done in different ways and also in conjunction with other organisations.

Warm Welcome – Warm welcome is held every Monday from 10am – 12pm, Open to anyone who wishes to meet and chat with others or just get some warmth and read newspapers.
Soup Lunch - Soup Lunch is held every Monday (except Bank Holidays) 12-1:30pm and provides a low cost homemade soup and roll as well as cake and refreshments. This is a good time to catch up with friends but also a place for those who need some company and to enjoy a hot meal.
Coffee Morning - On the 1st Saturday of each month (Except August or January) we hold our regular coffee morning for the local community from 10am. This includes a variety of stalls, especially cakes! and we sell breakfast sandwiches too.
Foodbank - The Gateshead Foodbank has a distribution point at TMC on Friday afternoons 1.30-3pm. This is run in conjunction with the Gateshead Foodbank and is run by volunteers. Referral voucher required. 
Craft Club - Our Craft Club is hugely popular and is often full. It is held every Wednesday morning from 10-12pm and afternoons from 1-3pm.
Community Lunch - It is a free hot lunch for our church family, extended church family, friends and those who would be alone on Sunday lunchtimes and those who have accessed the Foodbank in the previous weeks. It is prepared by members of the congregation. 
Any Questions? - A monthly group meeting in a home to informally discuss issues of life and spirituality in a safe space.  Usually on a Tuesday 7pm-9pm.
