Many of our Methodist Churches are found in villages well away from the local Parish Church. This was not due to any antagonism between the denominations in the 19th century but rather because the chapels were part of the culture of the communities that grew up around the mines and claypits.
Trewoon might be thought of as a ribbon development along the A3058 St Austell to Newquay road until you realise that it is surrounded by old workings and dominated by the Blackpool Clay Dryers.
John Wesley preached in St Mewan parish, at The Green in Trewoon where the railway now crosses the A3058.
In 2002 the Methodist congregations from the hamlets of Lanjeth and High Street joined with that of Trewoon in their newly renovated chapel to form Trinity Methodist Church which has been extended and modernised. In 2023 we have renovated afresh with new carpet, decoration and 75″ screen. The rooms are available for hire.
Join us for worship or any other of our activities and you will be sure of a sincere welcome.
