The Trinity Benefice

Commissioning of Heather and Fiona as ALMs at St. George's 2016 Commissioning of Heather and Fiona as ALMs at St. George's 2016

The Benefice was informally constituted on 1st July 2000. The formal constitution by the Privy Council was made on 1st July 2006.

 

Covering most of west Folkestone, the Benefice has an enviable record of stability over the past years and each parish maintains its own identity. We practise a group ministry within the Benefice, with a strong team of assistant priests and readers and a Benefice Administrator.

 

Our Mission Statement priorities are to Pray, Connect and Draw Near.

The Benefice is a member of Churches Together in Folkestone which set up the Rainbow Centre to provide assistance for both the homeless and those who have fallen on hard times as a result of the recession and welfare reforms. A Food-Bank serving the District of Shepway has recently been added to Food-Stop and the Winter Shelter. Members of the Benefice are active in the Rainbow Centre. An Assistant Priest is employed full-time as crisis drop-in centre manager and the Benefice also provides the Chair of Trustees and volunteers.
 
The Benefice also takes an active role in Diocesan affairs, providing volunteers for a variety of jobs within the Diocese.
 
We have a strong home-group tradition within the Benefice, with meetings throughout the week for Bible study and prayer. The healing ministry plays an important part in the life of all three churches, with special services each month and regular times of prayer.
