Trinity UMC


Ministry is better together.

THE SHORT VERSION, Trinity UMC started our campus in January 2016 to reach new people for Christ, especially our West Homewood neighbors.

THE LONG VERSION,  On June 12th, 1955, a Birmingham-Southern College student named Ron Gonia began a church called Oakmont United Methodist Church with 70 people. It became an exciting neighborhood church for young families for decades. Yet, as we all know, ministry evolves. Out of a desire to remain faithful to their neighborhood, the people of Oakmont UMC agreed with Trinity UMC to dissolve and restart as Trinity West Homewood in January 2016. It was really important to everyone involved that the legacy of Oakmont would continue, and that Trinity West Homewood would continue to be a great neighborhood church. The idea was that Trinity West Homewood would be a different “door” into the life of Trinity United Methodist Church. As one church, we share resources, staff and volunteers to ensure that everything we do is done with excellence.
We believe that Trinity West Homewood stands as a symbol of resurrection and renewal for the surrounding community.

Have a look at a few images from our past. Many men and women, boys and girls... maybe even a few squirrels and dogs found Jesus and the whole and abundant life that flows from that relationship with the Living God. We're so excited about continuing our journey into the future, because we love God and we love people; we just can't wait to see what's in store!
