At Holy Trinity, we are passionate about serving our city and community, in particular those who are most vulnerable or at risk. We partner with three fantastic organisations in the city who are caring for those in great need. These are Rathmines Women's Refuge, Team Hope and Jobcare.
Another area of outreach is creating a place where people outside of normal church circles can discuss important questions of faith and culture in Ireland today. Therefore, we help support an annual conference called Rubicon, for more information click here.
We also have weekly community outreach from the church. These include:
Men's Social Club
Most men have learned from our culture that they don’t talk about feelings and emotions. There has been little encouragement for men to take an interest in their own health and well-being. Unlike women, most men are reluctant to talk about their emotions and that means that they usually don’t ask for help. Probably because of this many men are less healthy than women, they drink more, take more risks and they suffer more from isolation, loneliness and depression.
Good health is based on many factors including feeling good about yourself, being productive and valuable to your community, connecting to friends and maintaining an active body and an active mind. Becoming a member of the Men's Social Club gives a man that safe and busy environment where he can find many of these things in an atmosphere of friendship. And, importantly, there is no pressure. Men can just come and have a chat and a cuppa if that is all they’re looking for.
Members of the Men's Social Club can come from all walks of life – the bond that unites them is that they are men with time on their hands and they would like something meaningful to do with that time.
Because men don’t often make a fuss about their problems, these problems have consistently been either ignored or swept under the mat by both our health system and our modern society.
The Men's Social Club meets in Holy Trinity every Monday from 7.30 - 9pm. For more info contact Gerry on (086) 667 9988.
Alcoholics Anonymous is a Twelve Step Fellowship dedicated to helping anyone suffering because of their drinking. The Twelve Step programme is the suggested format for recovery from alcoholism and its effects.
AA’s Twelve Steps are a group of principles, spiritual in their nature, which, if practiced as a way of life, can expel the obsession to drink and enable the sufferer to become happily and usefully whole.
AA’s Twelve Traditions apply to the life of the Fellowship itself. They outline the means by which AA maintains its unity and relates itself to the world about it, the way it lives and grows.
AA meets in Holy Trinity every Saturday at 7pm.

Started in 1990, mainly music is a fun music group for parents or primary care givers to enjoy together with their young child. Throughout the session, children develop gross and fine motor skills, language, imagination, mathematical and pre-reading skills as well as socialise with others. Each mainly music is associated with and is run by volunteers from a local church. Children are introduced to music, creativity and more, plus families given a chance to think about the God-part of life. Amazing to think that all this can be achieved in a loving, shared family environment.
For more information or to book a place, email Dilys at email@example.com.
Supporting Rathmines Women's Refuge
In 2016, we were honoured to serve Rathmines Women's Refuge for the fourth year in a row by providing over 100 hampers, each of which contained a week's worth of food, for families affected by domestic abuse and poverty. Many thanks to Alex Fromholz for co-ordinating these efforts and for everyone who contributed from our congregations.
