HAVE INDOOR SERVICES RESUMED AT TRINITY?
Yes! Services inside resumed on May 23rd. Join us for Sunday services at 7:30am, 11:00am and 11:05 Church Down Under.
At 9:00am, join us for Liturgy on the Lot, our outdoor service, designed with our unvaccinated young children in mind. With a child-friendly homily and a craft following the service, this is the ideal spot for young families until children under 12 can be vaccinated, and for those who just feel safer outside.
