Support the work in Cork
If you would like to support us in Cork, we need 3 things: Prayer, People and Money.
Please pray for us, more than anything else prayer will bless us. Of course you can pray for us from anywhere and without any help from us, that said if you follow us on social media www.facebook.com/trinity.cork or www.instagram.com/trinitypresbyteriancork or snapchat @trintypresbcx you will know the kind of things we think we need prayer for. We are also about to publish a email update in the next few weeks which you will be able to sign up for from here.
Many folk recommend us to their friends who are moving to cork or coming to study or holiday. We appreciate you sending them our way. Perhaps you yourself would like to come and worship with us? Feel free to call in any Sunday.

Sometimes people have said to us they would rather give to a project. Below is a list of things you could contribute too. Most are small enough- some are not! If you wanted to help with these please contact us via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 021 241 1691.
1. Re-plaster entire inside of church sanctuary. Some poor work years ago has resulted in peeling plaster in many areas. This is a huge job which will probably cost in excess of 50,000 euro.
2. Install new sound system, a lot of complaints about our sound has forced us to look at this. c12,000 euro. In process- Thanks!
3. Re-plaster and paint the McCully room. This is one of our main meeting rooms and the ministers office, much of the plaster is peeling off.
4. Remove the couple of tonnes of earth from front of church and plant grass in its place. There is a substantial area of our front that could be redeveloped for outside events. When our car-park was made most of the excess rubble was dumped there. c1500 euro.
5. Outdoor digital display noticeboard instead of old wooden one. We have about 18000 people pass by our front every day according to official statistics. This could be a great way of reaching them with a message. c15,400 euro.
6. Fence off upper triangle, to make it safe and help with any further development of it. A small area of scrub land that adjoins our neighbours. It needs securing before we can clear it. We would love to turn it into an outdoor Sunday school or meeting area.
7. Fix the squeaky boards underneath lectern. It's like standing on a crying child!!
8. Re-kerb the lane down to main road.
9. Downstairs store room is in very bad shape and it's not safe to put things there nor take them into it! It needs a new floor (it's just bare earth) the walls plastered, shelving installed, and a new bannister on the stairs down to it.
10. Re-carpet whole front area including the wheelchair ramp.
11. Re-carpet main church building. Both sets of carpet are getting to the auld and tatty stage.
12. Re-brass the light fixtures either side of the pulpit.
13. Fix huge hole in the ceiling in back entrance hallway. More hole than ceiling.
14. Re-point kerb border between car-park and grass.
15. Replace flooring in meeting room. Our principal meeting room has a floor that tests your confidence in wood.
16. Fix clock door and remove the confusing extra part of the minute hand. Every time you look at it you are confused.
17. Fix camera 2 in the front security cameras and camera 3 in back.
18. Concrete the path beside the storehouse and from showers.
19. Our front door has an ancient key that can't be cut by regular locksmiths.
