The smell of freshly baked bread is amazing!!!
Why not join us at Trinity to make your own bread!
We work together as a group and we supply all the basic ingredients. No previous experience is required.
It’s a great way to meet new people and learn a new skill. There’s an optional quite reflective time during the session. We suggest a minimum donation of £1.50 to help cover out costs.
Booking: You can just turn up but we have a booking process to avoid disappointment. To book into a session please speak to a member of staff before the day of the session to see if there are still available spaces.

Why bread making?
Making bread is a very practical, enjoyable and social activity. It simply combines the mixing of raw ingredients, allowing time for the process of kneading, proving and baking, and then eventually tasting the outcome that is a deep and rich experience enjoyed by people the world over.
Handmade bread is tasty and completely different from factory-made bread which contains a number of extra additives. In a bread-making group we can all learn from each other and increase our skills and knowledge together.
Why bread making at Trinity?
Bread is central to the Christian faith as a symbol of goodness, sharing and sacrifice. There are many Bible stories about bread such as when Jesus fed the five thousand with fish and loaves. The bread in our communion service reminds us of Jesus sharing bread with his friends to show how he was giving himself for them.
The bread makers will include people of faith and people with no apparent faith. It really does not matter.
What happens during bread making?
We work together on out bread dough, sharing ideas as we go. We help beginners who are new to the activity. It takes a while for dough to rise, so this gives us time to chat and get to know each other. And maybe have a drink in the café.
For those that want it, we hold a quite reflective time but this is purely optional.
What do you need to bring?
A suggested donation of £1.50 to cover ingredients and other costs.
You can also bring your own apron if you would like.
