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.

Lent Course: The Mystery of Everything

Our lent course for this year is “The Mystery of Everything” based on a book by Hilary Brand which takes the multi-award winning film about Stephen Hawking, The Theory of Everything, as its starting point.
We will explore ways in which the mysteries of the universe and of everyday life – and the acceptance that we have more questions than answers – can reinvigorate our faith and spiritual journey. Each session will include an extract from the film, group discussion and prayer.

8th March: The experience of wonder
15th March: The enigma of weakness
22nd March: The complexity of relationships
29th March: The encounter with frailty
5th April: The hope beyond brokenness

Marie Pattison will facilitate, as the course is not about science and religion (which she dislikes) but mystery, faith and relationships (which she loves to talk about).
We will meet every Wednesday evening in Lent at 7pm at the Rectory, 6 Encombe Place, Salford. If you don’t know how to get there the first time, you can also come to Sacred Trinity Church at 6.45pm and we will pick you up from there.
Just come along if you’re interested, we’re looking forward to some very interesting sessions and discussions with you!

7th April 2017, 7pm: Holly Macve Concert
“Little is known of Holly other than she is a 20 year old from Yorkshire who appeared out of nowhere in Brighton late last year. I had a tip-off to go to a basement bar where she was playing. In a room full of beery boys chatting across all the music beforehand, the minute Holly opened her mouth the room fell silent. Hers is a rare gift.”– Simon Rymonde, Bella Union

We have also got a Film Night on the second Thursday in the month at 7pm with the possibility to discuss or reflect about the film afterwards.
The next Film Nights are:

9th March 2017: I, Daniel Blake
“With the right handling, the movie has a chance to connect with audiences as few Loach films ever have. It’s a work of scalding and moving relevance.” – Owen Gleiberman
The protagonist Daniel Blake is a 59-year-old joiner living in the North-East of England who has worked all his adult life but has suffered a major heart attack. That is the reason why he finds himself in need of state welfare and meets a desperate single mother who needs the same thing. Together, the duo discovers that negotiating through the red tape is a challenge.

6th April 2017: Arrival
“Villeneuve has crafted a movie akin to “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”: an imaginative, escapist what-if scenario overlaid with profound questions about fate, loss and the meaning of love.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
Based on the 1998 short story “Story of Your Life” by Ted Chiang and directed by Denis Villeneuve, the film “Arrival” tells the story of Linguistics professor Louise Banks (Amy Adams) who leads an elite team of investigators when gigantic spaceships touch down in 12 locations around the world. As nations teeter on the verge of global war, Banks and her crew must race against time to find a way to communicate with the extraterrestrial visitors. Hoping to unravel the mystery, she takes a chance that could threaten her life and quite possibly all of mankind.

Please note: This Film Night won’t be on the second Thursday in the month because that would be in Holy Week. So we’ll be meeting at the first Thursday, the 6th April.
