The Feast of the Trinity

Trinity Sunday which falls on the first Sunday after Pentecost, is one of the few feasts in the Christian calendar that celebrate a doctrine rather than an event. Trinity lasts from Trinity Sunday (11 June 2017) to the Saturday before Advent (2 December 2017)

The core belief

The doctrine of the Trinity is the Christian belief that:

There is One God, who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit

Other ways of referring to the Trinity are the Triune God and the Three-in-One.

A fundamental doctrine

The doctrine of the Trinity is one of the most difficult ideas in Christianity, but it's fundamental to Christians because it:

  • states what Christians believe God is like and who he is
  • plays a central part in Christians' worship of an "unobjectifiable and incomprehensible God"
  • emphasises that God is very different from human beings
  • reflects the ways Christians believe God encounters them
  • is a central element of Christian identity
  • teaches Christians vital truths about relationship and community
  • reveals that God can be seen only as a spiritual experience whose mystery inspires awe and cannot be understood logically                                                                                                      from BBC Religions
