Thank you for visiting Trinity Evangelical Church webpage.

 It is our aim to make known the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the preaching of his Word as laid out in the Bible.

Sadly, as is the experience across the Globe, we are unable to meet in person until the Coronavirus restrictions are lifted. However, this would be an ideal time to visit our resources section to listen to messages by our Pastor Andrew Hemingway.

We hope that you gain much encouragement through listening to the sermons via this website or podcast. Catch up on our latest series which will take an in-depth look at the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Church in Ephesus. It is a letter of encouragement to believers in Jesus Christ that instructs on how to live a life of love.

We hope you find this website helpful in learning something about the truth and meaning of life, through the Lord Jesus Christ.

Play The Man

Play the Man 1 Corinthians 16:13 I suspect the Lords People would be surprised to hear that football and the Apostle Paul share something in common. Strange bedfellows you might think! Those who follow football will be used to...

Jesus was before he came

John 18:37 “You are a king, then!” said Pilate. Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”  The words, "I came into the world"...

A Christmas saying

1 Timothy 1:15-17 "Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his...

God’s glory visible

2 Corinthians 4:6 "For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ." One of the amazing things about the incarnation of God is that we have...

Mission: Fulfill

Matthew 5:17-18 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means...

Jesus: hope of the world

John 3:17-18 "For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one...

Overthrow

1 John 3:8 "The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work." The devil works we are told by John. We ought not to think the devil is benign. He...

Gloria in excelsis deo

Glory to God in the highest!

John 12:27-28 “Now my soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour. Father, glorify your name!” These are the words of the Lord Jesus, spoken out of the anguish of His soul...

Jesus simply had to become a man

Hebrews 2:14-15 "Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of...

Christmas contract

Jeremiah 31:31 "'The days are coming,' declares the Lord, 'when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah." God has spent a lot of history in covenant with people. Whenever he has sought to establish a relationship with men and...

Peace talk

Isaiah 9:6-7 "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end....

Matthew‬ ‭2:10-11 “When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.”‭‭‬...

Christmas coup d’état

Matthew‬ ‭2:3‬ “When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him.” At the inaugural Christmas, not all those concerned with Jesus were as awe struck as the Shepherds and the Magi. Some were positively terrified by the news. Not least the king,...

The Magi: Still pointing to Jesus

Matthew 2:1-2 “After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”” Local shepherds...

Godspeed

Luke 2:15-18 “'Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.' So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had...

The Prince is here!

Luke 2:13-14 "Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favour rests.'" According to the Angels, people's peace is dependant on God. It's...

Attention: Dawning ahead

Luke 2:10-12 "But the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby...

Less lowing and more Lowly.

Luke 2:6-7 "While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them."  The picture of Jesus born in a stable...

Man-god v God-man

Luke 2:1-4 "In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register. So...

Mary: moved to sing

Luke 1:54-56 "'...He has helped his servant Israel, remembering to be merciful to Abraham and his descendants forever, just as he promised our ancestors.' Mary stayed with Elizabeth for about three months and then returned home." On Sunday we gave ourselves to this...

Simeon’s Saviour

 Luke 2:25 "Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him." Simeon was a man who had made ready for the appearing of Jesus. He was waiting in anticipation...

Unravelling Job

After reading the 42 chapters devoted to the character Job in the bible, it’s quite easy to find yourself scratching your head wondering what you've just read. On first glance, Job seems self righteous, even irreverent and yet by the end we see God vindicates him. His...

Christ Meets All Our Needs

  It has been over 70 years since Maslow’s ‘Hierarchy of Human Motivation and Needs’ was published and it has since gained immense popularity across the areas of business and personal development. The theory illustrates a list of human needs that must be met for...

Who is Jesus Christ?

  To consider who Jesus Christ is you need to expose yourself to his claims, character and power. Read the Gospels and Jesus Christ will be revealed.  Philip Schaff, a 19th Century Swiss theologian wrote a very useful insight into the impact Christ has had on our...

Know Your History!

  Some weeks ago I had entered into a rather challenging conversation with a lady in Denby Dale whilst handing out leaflets inviting people to attend our Church service. The lady was clearly well read and was interested in history and philosophy and I’m afraid my...

When it’s good to be weak!

So often we can find ourselves discouraged by our own sense of unworthiness and inability to speak to friends, neighbours and strangers about God's grace in Christ. We feel that we let The Lord down; that we do despite to his name by our poor understanding, or our...

There is no number too small for the Lord

Our God likes it when the numbers are not in our favour. There are plenty of examples in the bible where The Lord either allows or actively makes the numbers hopeless. When Gideon was getting ready to face the Midianite and Amalakite forces, The Lord told him he had...

The power behind the pew

  TEC will be 27 years old in August, 2013. When the church was founded in 1986, it had a congregation which numbered little more than a handful, but today there are regularly over 50 people present on Sunday mornings. So what has changed? Well not a lot. If you...
