50 Years at Trinity

Posted on 10th June 2022 | in Community , Heritage & Tourism

The three churches of Radcliffe, Percy Street and High Street were closed and all joined together to worship at Trinity Methodist Church in Percy Street, Amble.

The caption reads: Mr T. Straffen presenting a key to the chapel steward, Mr Cecil Ryle at the opening of Trinity Methodist Church, Amble, on Saturday.

Trinity opened on June 24 1972 when Rev. David Roberts was the minister. Everyone who worked on transforming the building from a factory to a church was invited to the special opening.

A commemorate key was presented to Mr. Cecil Ryle (property steward) by Mr Tom Straffen (Chairman of Amble Council). 300 people joined in the celebration service and afterwards tea was served by the ladies of the church.

And so in June 2022 Trinity will be celebrating 50 years of worship in the Percy Street church.
A special coffee morning will be held on Saturday 25 June from 9-30am to 11-30am with cakes, a raffle and a tombola.

An exhibition of photos and memorabilia will be on display showing members, friends and many aspects of the church life over the last 50 years.

On Sunday 26 June Mr Steve Collinson from Cramlington will preach the anniversary service at 10-30am.

This is a special weekend for everyone at Trinity and we invite anyone to come along to help celebrate our 50th anniversary.
