Our Approach and Values
Trinity Church Mill Hill – United Reformed and Methodist
We are a friendly inclusive congregation of around 35 adults and children from many different backgrounds and cultures. We are united in our desire to follow the way of Jesus, to be a witness to his message of peace and justice, and to follow his example in serving both the local community and the wider world.
Membership of Trinity Church is by Baptism and Confirmation; for those already baptised, it is by the renewal of Baptismal Vows and Confirmation. Any who are communicant members of any branch of the Christian Church may join on Confession of Faith.
Please contact the Minister, the Church Secretary or your Elder if you wish to consider membership.
About Reverend David Newton
United Reformed and Methodist
I’m originally from Leicestershire but my family moved around the country when I was young and I lived in North-West London as a teenager. Thus, when I came the area in 2011 I was coming back to live not far from old haunts. Prior to becoming a Minister, I worked as an accountant for 25 years, before training at Sarum College Salisbury and entering the ministry in 2006. I have been in pastoral charge at Trinity Church Mill Hill since 2014.
I am married and my wife and I enjoy travel, seeking to discover new perspectives, and an understanding of how others see the world.
It’s been a great privilege to be part of the church at Trinity. I have always felt that church is about community, and Trinity is a has a strong sense of community and seeks to serve those in the Mill Hill area every bit as much as those who worship on a Sunday. This resonates with my belief that while faith is personal, religion exists to serve society, not the religious. Trinity follows this path, the path Jesus exemplified, and it has been rewarding to see how we have developed our work over the last few years.
We, the people of Trinity Church Mill Hill (United Reformed and Methodist),
believe that we are called, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to learn together to:
Worship and to share the hope, the forgiveness and the love of God that we find in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ;
Offer God’s love and care in words and action to our neighbours near and far;
Seek justice and peace in our community and the world;
Sustain and renew the life of the earth, as faithful stewards of God’s creation.
