A brief guide to who we are, and what make us tick

A little about us

Why Trinity?

The idea of using Trinity as a name came a bit out of the blue, but we liked it, in particular because of the way it points to the essence of who God is, as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  

God is more than our creator, he is the Father of a huge and diverse family.

Jesus has come to establish God's kingdom on the earth and to reconcile people back to the Father.

And the Holy Spirit is here with us now, to help us in every aspect of our lives.



Our highest privilege is to express our devotion to God in every aspect of life.  The way we live, the way we serve and the way we worship.  


We love it that church is diverse, with people of different age groups, cultures and socio-economic backgrounds who value, support and encourage one another.   


Our mission is to call people to follow Christ and to to live by the values he taught.  This is a life long journey that has the power to change lives and to transform relationships.  


From earliest times the church was called to be of practical benefit to the communities of which they were a part, by helping those in need or by advocating for those who feel powerless.  


Trinity Church officially launched in September 2017, but our history does go back a little further than that.  

Our beginning is located in the Assembly of God church that was planted in Palmerston North in 1927.  By 2008 the name had been changed to Salt and was made up of two congregations (of which we were one).  Both churches agreed it was better that each had it's own identity in the City, and out of that decision Trinity Church was born.


We are still part of the Assembly of God and value our relationship with Salt as well as the other churches in the city.
