Connect: Who we are

Primarily, Connect is a community of people, and our purpose is threefold:

  • To provide opportunities for fellowship for partners of those in full-time study at Trinity College.
  • To provide support to one another, sharing our lives together and seeking God’s transformation in our lives.
  • To be a means by which our members can be equipped for their future ministry, and develop their own unique callings.

Our heart is to be a place where God can prepare us for life after Trinity.

How is Connect run?

Connect can only operate with the help of all its members (not just the exec)! There will be many opportunities to get involved in the running of Connect over the coming year with a range of tasks. This may be setting up a room for a meeting, giving someone a lift to an event, baking a cake, bringing snacks for children, helping organise a social, tidying up at the end of a meeting, running a children’s activity, helping to plan our programme of talks each term, helping to run a home group, leading worship, helping with prayers…the list goes on! There will be something for everyone so we look forward to you getting involved! We have found in the past that the more you put into Connect, the more you get out of it.

COVID-19 update (Mar 2021)

Our response to the change in national lockdown measures announced recently. Government guidelines show, very little has changed and we are mostly continuing to follow the same measures at college as before (essential access for private studies and library collection only). Sadly the practical courses measure does not apply to us; I appreciate there has been some confusion around this […]
