We hope your exploration of Trinity Church and its denomination, the Episcopal Church, draws you ever closer in a loving relationship with God. Our Church enjoys a rich Anglican heritage. From this heritage come certain words, practices, and prayers used in our services. Our Anglican tradition also allows for differences in the way folks express their worship. Some people kneel, some stand, and some sit during particular phases of the service. Some people cross themselves; others do not. Don’t worry about ‘conforming’ to an exact form; simply join us in worshiping the Almighty and do what feels right to you. We also have a wide variety of beliefs, being drawn together by a tradition of shared (or “common”) prayer rather than a particular doctrinal confession. (In our shared tradition we on occasion recite the historic creeds of the early undivided Church, and these are understood in a variety of ways by different worshipers.)
