Trinity baptists in the UK are in the process of being removed from their UK church website after it was shut down last week due to an alleged “significant breach of trust”.
The website has been the subject of several complaints, with many members of the church who attended services at the church in London calling for its closure.
Trinity baptism has long been criticised by some members of religious communities for its lack of faithfulness, which has seen the UK church’s annual reports consistently fail to meet church attendance standards.
“We have never been to church,” one member wrote on Trinity’s Facebook page.
“As a non-believer I have no reason to think they are doing any better than other faith communities in terms of attendance.
I can only conclude that they have been using people who do not belong to their church as an audience for their sermons and teaching,” he added.
One of the more popular posts was a plea for the church to close, which was shared over 300 times on the Facebook page, and prompted more than 500 comments from across the UK.
“I hope that this has put to rest any doubts you may have about us as a church,” a user wrote.
“Please close Trinity Baptist Church,” another added.
The church, which runs five properties across London, was also criticised for its refusal to offer any support to the congregation who had been affected by the closure.
“Trinity Baptist Church is closed,” a message posted on the church’s Facebook account said on Thursday.
“There is no longer room for anyone who is leaving the church.
Our prayers are with all those affected.”
The church said in a statement that the closure had been caused by “a significant breach of the trust that Trinity has established with our members and members of our congregation”.
“Trinitarians in the United Kingdom are in a unique position in relation to church attendance,” it added.
Trinity baptisms are among the most popular faith communities on Facebook, with nearly one million people sharing the post and hundreds of thousands of people having shared it in the last 24 hours. “
With this in mind, we will be providing support to those members who are leaving Trinity Baptist church as a result of the closure.”

The closure of Trinity’s website was announced by the church on Friday morning.
“Due to an issue with our website, we have been forced to shut down our website and no longer allow anyone to view our website,” the statement said.
However, we must stress that we are a church and we can do better.”
