Trinity Mission Castleford



Stephanie Salvador's receives a donation on behalf of Trinity Mission Castleford




Trinity Mission is a charity founded by the Trinity Methodist Church in Castleford over a decade ago! Originally a night shelter, it’s services have changed over the years and it now offers all of the following on a drop-in basis; Food bank, Soup kitchen, Clothing bank and Support co-ordinating.


The heart of the mission is to uphold a compassionate and non-judgemental approach, our guests ("Service Users") come to us for different reasons, the most common being; addiction, poor mental health, loneliness and financial hardships, often some of these together.


Our aim is to help adults in the wider community (often including some from Wakefield) who are in need of support and are perhaps marginalised or isolated. The heart of the mission is to uphold a compassionate and non-judgemental approach, our guests (Service users) come to us for different reasons, the most common being; addiction, poor mental health, loneliness and financial hardships, often some of these together. What we do gives the opportunity to share a hot meal with other members of the community in a warm, friendly environment and seek advice or support from our Support Co-ordinator and from other community drop-in services such as Turning Point.


As we are a volunteer based charity my main role as Services Manager is to ensure we always have enough volunteers for the running of our sessions and to manage our donations and shopping for both food parcels and the kitchen.


Our funding has a variety of different sources some being; the methodist church both circuit and district, coalfields regeneration trust, supermarket community grants, the council and many more.


My work definitely relates to my Christian faith more specifically than any previous employment, scripture is filled with instructions to help those in physical/ spiritual need and those who are looked down on and I love being a part of that at work where many people are deemed unworthy and undeserving by society, God’s truth is that none are good, we are all unworthy yet are shown immeasurable grace and love by our Lord.


God’s truth is that none are good, we are all unworthy yet are shown immeasurable Grace and Love by our Lord.


The truth is sometimes people’s overall outcome won’t improve however we can make a difference to their day to day life, and God willing we might show His grace and help make a difference to their eternity also, then again there are cases where there is drastic improvement, at the moment there is a guest who is finally in rehab for an addiction and after years of estrangement from their family have now reconnected with children and grandchildren!

I think a great thing to pray for us would be that more doors would open to share the gospel and also for Myself and Mark (Support Co-ordinator) as staff, our trustees and volunteers as we all work together to keep the Hope Centre running.
