Trinity Church seeks to glorify God and enjoy Him forever in Christ, and we try to do this by the way we live; seeking to grow in Christ ourselves, in fellowship with each other, and by helping others to know Christ. Rooted in the Bible, we believe that the orthodox Christian faith, established in Jesus Christ, shared by Christians across the world and down through history, is still the great need for our world today, and as such we are evangelistically minded. We are members of the FIEC and part of the Surrey Gospel Partnership. We subscribe to the FIEC statement on complementarianism regarding women’s roles in the church, theologically we are non-cessationist regarding the gifts of the Spirit, but believe the expression of such should be exercised only under the oversight of the leadership of the church, and we are dual practice with regard to baptism.
Our church started in Greatham over 35 years ago as part of the International Presbyterian Church, which grew out of Francis Schaeffer’s ministry, and we have been meeting in Liphook, Hampshire, for over 30 years. In order to facilitate having both Presbyterian and Baptist Elders in our leadership, we became an Independent Evangelical Church in 2001, although we still expect our Pastor and elders to be broadly in agreement with the Westminster Confession, which we have retained as one of our foundation documents.
We are a church of about 70 people covering the whole age range from 0 to 90 plus. People attending Trinity come from Liphook and a wide range of villages and towns in the surrounding area including: Petersfield, Bordon/Whitehill, Midhurst, and Haslemere. We meet on a Sunday morning in Liphook Infant School and on Sunday evening in the Petersfield URC, where we hire the church hall. We currently have house groups meeting in Petersfield, Liphook and Haslemere.
The present pastor is planning to retire at the end of September 2019, after a three month sabbatical, and so our aim is to appoint a new pastor by the summer of that year. We are looking to grow our church over the coming years, in terms of the maturity of the existing individuals within our congregation, through the inclusion of other Christians from the local area, and through evangelism. We will therefore be seeking a new Pastor who is fully committed to this aim and who has a clear commitment to studying, understanding and then teaching and preaching the Bible.
