Trinity United Church, Methodist and United Reformed, Ringwood

Trinity United Church (Methodist and United Reformed), Ringwood, is an ecumenical church in the centre of the town. We worship together every Sunday, we share in Bible Study and a living exploration of what it means to be a follower of Jesus in today’s world. We operate from two busy and popular centres (the Trinity Centre and the Wesley Centre) which we manage for church activities and for use by the wider community.

We can promote dementia friendly awareness throughout our community.
