The church with the open doors
We have projects working alongside different groups in our community.
On Mondays we host with Western Lodge a support café for those who are homeless or in danger of homelessness. Our weekly drop-in service will help individuals with support in housing and winter night shelters. The drop-in will also help you with universal credit applications, health advice and access to a NHS nurse. We are now providing hot meals, sandwiches and hot drinks. Access to Foodbank Vouchers available. No appointment needed, just drop-in every Monday from 2-4pm, Holy Trinity Church, 74 Trinity Road SW17 7RH (opposite the Fire Station, on the corner). For further details, please call 020 8 696 1564 email:
Please note the drop-in will be closed on Monday 27th December & Monday 3rd January 2022. Normal service will resume on Monday 10th January.
On Tuesdays we visit the Rosedene Care Home to join with residents in a service of holy communion in a place where we have pastoral links.
On Wednesdays Trinity Tots meets in the church providing support and play space for carers and babies.
On Thursdays we run the Thursday Club in the hall, offering a chance for social interaction for those living with long-term mental health problems.
We believe that Christianity doesn't stop just at the doors of the church. We are active in BATCA (the Balham and Tooting Community Association) which works to build bridges and friendships between the different faith, ethnic and cultural groups in our local area.
At Holy Trinity we give approximately 10% of all of the money that we raise over the year to charities and other good causes. Each year we review the charities that we support to ensure that they are the best fit with the priorities of our church and changing circumstances in the world. At present we are supporting:
Most of the funds that we raise are split equally between these four but some is kept behind in a disaster and emergency relief fund which is used to provide help as needs arise.
We also support the Children's Society through collecting boxes and Christian Aid.
