Welcome to Trinity!  If this is your first visit, please note that we do not take a collection during the service, but your offering may be placed on the plate at the back of the church as you enter or leave.  Also, there are many occasions during the service where we stand for lengthy periods.  If you are more comfortable sitting or kneeling, please feel free to do so.

LENTEN STUDY-When you’re saying the Apostles Creed have you wondered if Mary really was a virgin or why Jesus went to hell, or why do we say we believe in “the holy catholic church” if we’re not Catholic? Join us in the Canterbury Room, Thursday March 10th, 17th, 31st and April 7th starting at 7 pm until 8:30pm as we explore what we say in our Affirmation of Faith.

Saturday March 19th-“GROWING OUR CHURCH“. Please join us in the Canterbury Room for a discussion about where God is leading the Parish of Trinity. The Rev. Ross Hammond will be leading us in discerning where God is working in our community and what does God want of us. Coffee will be ready at 9am and we begin at 9:30 finishing promptly at 11:30am. Daycare can be arranged by contacting Rev Andrea prior to the event. Everyone is encouraged to attend.
