Beginning Sunday 6 May 2018, Solid Ground Greyabbey will be opened every Sunday from 11.30am to warmly welcome folks from our congregation, and wider community, who may find it difficult, for a variety of reasons, to sit through the main church service. This will offer the opportunity to watch and listen to the service, via television, in a smaller, relaxed setting with refreshments available.  A number of congregational members will be on hand before, during and after the service to provide assistance or simply to have a chat. If you feel this facility would meet your needs please come along – you will be made very welcome; alternatively, if you feel it may meet the needs of a family member or friend, please let them know the details or perhaps bring them along with you.  Please contact Elaine on 07718 203322 should you require any further details.


We are in the process of updating our church records and would like for each family member of the church to take a few minutes to update or obtain information on them.  All information is for church purposes only and will be held in accordance of the Data Protection Act.  It is for communication purposes only for Trinity, Greyabbey and will help the session and committee with the weekly running of the church.  Thank you very much for taking the time and if you have any queries please get in touch with Tony Craig on 07985 415126.  To access the page please click here

Social Media – For those of you who are on social media, a new Facebook page (Mission 2020: Trinity Presbyterian) has been created to advertise the events that are due to take place over the course of the mission. Please keep an eye out for the posts and like and share these to enhance viewers!
