Our History


Trinity United Methodist Church began as the Seven Hills Methodist Outpost sponsored by Breckenridge Street Methodist Church. The first service was held in the auditorium of the Seven Hills Elementary School on March 6, 1960 with 52 people attending. The Church was officially organized on May 22, 1960 with 36 members and was received into the Louisville Conference on May 27, 1960.


The present sanctuary and education building were complete in 1963. Further construction occurred in 1969 with the inclusion of a basement, and the present fellowship hall was completed in 1985. At the charge conference on July 29, 1973, approval was given to purchase the building at 1501 Trinity Drive to be used as a parsonage. In April 1978 an addition to the parsonage was completed. The renovation of the sanctuary was completed in April of 1997 with most of the work being completed by Church members.
