God loves everyone and has a heart for the poor, the lonely, those who are suffering, the downtrodden. He longs for people to know of his love for them and to have a relationship with him. The bible in Mathew 28 v 19 tells us to share the good news about Jesus with everyone.
As a response to our faith in God, Holy Trinity supports a number of missionary societies who are sharing the good news about Jesus, and seeking to show Gods love in practical ways. We are also supportive of initiatives that help people in this country who are struggling financially in the current economic climate.

The food bank was set up by the Trussell Trust Organisation who work in partnership with local churches and organisations to bring food to communities throughout the uk. There are now 275 foodbanks in the network.
People who are in dire circumstances due to benefits being delayed or sudden unexpected expenses do all they can to avoid asking for help.In order to access the food bank people need to obtain a voucher from one of the agencies who issue them - usually doctors, social workers or health visitors etc. They will be given enough food for them and their family for three days. This is usually dried, tinned and long life food.Applicants for food help can only apply three times within a six month period. Very few people have had more than three vouchers since the Foodbank opened. Most people do not come back for help as the problems they were having were only temporary.
During 2013/14 the Foodbank was able to provide over 46,000 meals to help individuals and families in crisis. This is a vital lifeline for many vulnerable people - please give generously.
For further information about the Food bank, how it works or to get involved please visit the Warrington food bank website

Warrington Street Pastors
Street pastors are trained volunteers from local churches who care about their community.
They patrol in teams of men and women, usually from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. on a Friday and Saturday night, to care for, listen to and help people who are out on the streets.
A street pastor is someone who is…
- a Christian and is part of a local church;
- concerned for society and their local community;
- willing to engage with people, whatever their perspective on life and wherever they hang out;
- happy to work in a team and in collaboration with other agencies and projects, both statutory and voluntary.
The scheme, which is in operation throughout the UK, was launched in Warrington in July with the backing of the Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire David Briggs, Cheshire Police and Warrington Borough Council.
The street pastors aim is to show the love of God to people in a practical way and to reduce crime during busy evenings in Warrington Town Centre "This may be by just giving a pair of flip flops to a young woman who has broken the heel of her shoe, a bottle of water, calling parents, getting a taxi, diffusing a delicate situation or if necessary calling the emergency services."
Each volunteer must agree to undergo training which is typically run by the police and the council.
Volunteers must be 18 or over, be committed to the Christian fellowship for more than a year and complete a DBS check.
Street Pastors will be issued with a coat, shirt and cap so they can be identified by members of the public.
