The Mission Group brings together a small group of church members, to seek God's guidance on how best to spend mission giving collections; through prayer, discussion and reflection. The group meets 4 times a year and decides how to apportion collections for a variety of local, national and international charitable beneficiaries by agreeing an annual calendar of giving. Members also participate in additional charitable functions, including responding to national and international crises appeals.

Trinity supports a different charity each month. Click on a month below for details of the Outreach project for that month in 2022:

SamaritansNorth Herts and Stevenage Samaritans

Since 1953 Samaritans have been offering 24-hour confidential emotional support to anyone in distress. Their vision is for a society where fewer people die by suicide because people are able to share feelings of emotional distress openly without fear of being judged. They believe that offering people the opportunity to be listened to in confidence, and accepted without prejudice, can alleviate despair and suicidal feeling. The service (in UK and Republic of Ireland) is offered by 18,300 trained volunteers and its future depends on voluntary support.

The Living RoomThe Living Room premises are at the Glebe in Stevenage and the organisation helps young people with addiction problems. For a number of years now they have provided a day care service for adults receiving about 200 referrals each year. Thanks to a grant from the Hertfordshire Community Foundation the service has been extended to 13 to 17 year-olds.

The Living Room helps young people addicted to - or at risk of becoming addicted to - alcohol, street drugs such as cannabis and cocaine, or prescribed drugs such as sleeping pills. The scheme also caters for eating disorders and gambling addictions and it is hoped to extend the service to prevent the young binge drinker of today becoming the alcoholic of tomorrow.  Living Room hopes its success will inspire other organisations to invest in its work.

 May   Christian Aid


Christian Aid is the official relief and development agency of 41 Christian churches in the United Kingdom and Ireland, and works to support sustainable development, eradicate poverty, support civil society and provide disaster relief in South America, the Caribbean, Africa and Asia.

Christian Aid also organises the UK's largest door-to-door collection, Christian Aid Week, which takes place in May each year.

Christian Aid Statement: 'Our values are rooted in our Christian belief and are based on our understanding of relational theology, which asserts that human beings are called to have a special relationship with God and in turn to have a particular relationship with one another. Everything we do is in response to God’s gift to the world, of his son Jesus Christ.                                                                                                                         
Jesus promised ‘good news’ for the poor and ‘freedom’ for the oppressed, calling us to action.
Jesus called his followers to ‘love God and love your neighbour’.
Through his life and teaching, his death and his resurrection, he inspired his followers to love God, love their neighbours and long for justice.'
