An important feature of our work is supporting and encouraging local people to develop their own interests. A broad range of groups meet for education (mother tongue classes, music lesson), recreation (sport, dance, drama, cookery, textile arts) and support (groups for adults with mild/moderate mental health issues, women’s groups, groups for elders). These activities bring communities together, encouraging people to stay connected and live healthy and active lives. As well as activities, individuals and groups use our building for meetings, to run training programmes, conferences as well as social events.
We work in partnership with Newham Council’s Children & Young People’s Service, Newham Child & Family Consultation Service, Newham Primary Care Trust, Age UK, The Children’s Society, University of East London and London Youth.
When Trinity was first established it was amongst the first to recognise the importance of interfaith dialogue to promote tolerance and understanding in the community. Trinity has maintained this tradition and over the years has been home to many religious groups including: Sikhs, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists and Christians. Trinity has no religious affiliations. The faith groups that meet at Trinity provide their communities with a range of support and opportunities to socialise.
Faith groups currently meeting at Trinity serve the following communities: Afro-Caribbean, Congolese, Filipino, Kenyan, Lithuanian, North Indian, South Indian and Sri Lankan.
