Dunoon – Who are We?

Who are we?  Holy Trinity church,  perched on a distinctive hill at the foot of the appropriately named Bishop’s Seat on the outskirts of Dunoon, houses a vibrant and welcoming congregation whose members have taken to heart the need to assume responsibility for their own growth and wellbeing. In this they are ably supported and led by their current rector, and are at present working towards the development of the land around the church, and in making the church carbon neutral by 2030.


The congregation is diverse and forward-looking in attitude, willing to explore the possibilities of their beautiful building and surrounding land without being tied to the past, and open to people of all backgrounds and lifestyles.

Holy Trinity is an open and inclusive church, made up of and welcoming people from all communities regardless of race, colour, gender, age, nationality, economic circumstances, marital status, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability or emotional condition, and of any age.

Worship  The Sung Eucharist on Sunday is celebrated by the Rector on the first and third Sundays of the month, as well as the few fifth Sundays. On the Sundays when he is on Bute with Holy Trinity’s sister congregation the celebrant may well be the Revd. Canon Paddy Allen, a retired minister who is a member of the congregation. At other times the service will take place from the Reserved Sacrament, administered by one of the Lay Team.
