About

Sacred Trinity are a welcoming church worshipping in a small but lovely building.  Sacred Trinity was the first church in Salford but is right next to Manchester city centre and we relate to both the city centre and the rest of Salford.  Many of our congregation walk to church but some come from further away. The building is also host to a variety of different groups.

Sundays

We meet on Sunday mornings at 11.15 am for a contemporary Anglican Communion. We are fairly traditional but friendly and relaxed with a twist of creativity. We always say that “All are Welcome” and we genuinely believe it. We are a mix of young and old, black and white, gay and straight, male and female, child and adult, well off and struggling to get by, noisy and quiet… Whoever you are there is room for you at Sacred Trinity. After the service we serve good coffee and have a chance to chat.

Sunday evenings we meet at 7.00 pm for a quieter, smaller, less formal service. In the evenings we start with a drink and we also get the beanbags out.

15th June 2017: Lion
“Lion is the most real, moving, bonding and universal story I have ever seen on film. And it’s a special gift now that we are being told to isolate ourselves and pretend we are not all passengers on space ship earth.” – Gloria Steinem, Writer and Activist
We warmly invite you to our Film Night in June where we’ll be showing the 2016 biographical film “Lion”, directed by Garth Davis, based on the non-fiction book “A Long Way Home” by Saroo Brierley.
The films deals with five-year-old Saroo who gets lost on a train which takes him thousands of Kilometers across India, away from home and family. Saroo must learn to survive alone in Kolkata, before ultimately being adopted by an Australian couple. Twenty-five years later, armed with only a handful of memories, his unwavering determination, and a revolutionary technology known as Google Earth, he sets out to find his lost family and finally return to his first home.

20th July 2017: The Red Turtle
“This wordless animated fable follows the fortunes of a shipwrecked man on an island – and it’s a masterpiece!” – Mark Kermode, The Guardian
We’d like to invite you to our monthly Film Night in July where we’re going to show “The Red Turtle”. The 2016 animated fantasy film co-written and directed by Dutch-British animator Michaël Dudok de Wit and produced by Toshio Suzuki from Japan tells the story of a man who becomes shipwrecked on a deserted island and meets a giant red turtle. Soon, though, his story blooms into something more mysterious and meditative – and though there isn’t a single word of dialogue in the film’s 80-minute running time, the big questions it asks, about ambition, acceptance and the beauty of companionship, ring loud in every heart-melting frame.

Gigs

15th July 2017, 4.30pm: North Sea Radio Orchestra and William D Drake
The uniqueness of NSRO’s music has meant they have never really belonged to any ‘scene’, having always defied categorisation. Some continue to include them in with the ‘Nu Folk’ phenomenon but in reality they continue as they have always done: doing it all themselves, ploughing their own furrow outside of any group or affiliation, creating beautiful, crafted music for music lovers uninterested in category or genre. It is in this light that they have set up their own label, ‘The Household Mark’, to release their latest record. The creative freedom that flows through this album in part springs from the liberating feeling of not having to seek assurances from label, contemporaries or advisors. Without them NSRO have been free to create a unified collection of songs and instrumentals that will stand up to scrutiny for years to come.
North Sea Radio Orchestra – ‘I a moon’; beautiful, redolent, ancient and modern, English and world, unique.
Tickets are available online.

15th September 2017, 8.30pm: Dan Reed – Confessions UK Tour
Singer-songwriter from Portland, Oregon incorporating simple acoustic songs with world sounds and samples. He’s written many electronic tracks, some with his own vocals or some with sampled vocals from different political speakers. With songs composed from Hong Kong to New Dehli, Jerusalem to London, Dan’s music has a global sound.
The Confessions UK Tour sees Dan Reed take in intimate venues around the UK performing acoustically for what will be a very special and spiritual set of shows.
The performances are taking place in some beautiful and atmospheric venues and we will be filming and recording the first three to create a Live DVD release… Each ticket includes a downloadable Hi-Resolution MP4 video file of the DVD and downloadable digital WAV and MP3 mixes of all the tracks from the DVD. The audio mixes will not be available anywhere else!
As is typical with Dan Reed shows the evening will be immersive and interactive giving you, the audience the opportunity to contribute directly to something special and create something unique. So have your requests at the ready! 
Tickets are available online.
