About us

Falkirk Trinity Church

We are a welcoming, lively and inclusive Church in the heart of Falkirk. We are imperfect but trying our best with God’s help to live out what we believe. So what do we believe?

We believe in varied, meaningful and relevant worship that gathers all ages as a family of God’s people where everyone is important.

We believe God’s Word is contained in the Bible and his Spirit helps us interpret the Bible for the times in which we live. We believe there is a Gospel bias to the poor. We see prayer as our continual conversation with God as he guides our daily lives. We believe in one God, revealed as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God is the Creator who shaped this beautiful world and us, but people rejected God. He sent Jesus to tell us of his love and to take away our wrongdoing on the Cross, then he raised Jesus from death to offer us new life now and for always in heaven; he lives in us and works through us by his Holy Spirit. He calls us to be disciples and to make disciples.

Transforming Lives

As a Church, we are saddened by the state of the world where many people seem to ignore God, neglect their neighbours and care little for our planet. We want to change that and to bring people to know God through worship and action – giving fittingly of our time, talents and money and loving our neighbours, near and far.

We warmly invite you to share in our worship, work, vision and faith! Our main outreach focus is our Family Life Centre.
