About Us:

Trinity Church is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania. We are a a faith community with a family atmosphere that combines a variety of worship styles. Our emphasis is on worship, outreach and education. We have quality child care in our nursery, a church school program for children aged 4-18, and an excellent program of education for adults as well.

We have three services on Sunday: an 8:00 Rite One (traditional) service, a 9:00 informal service for families with children, and an 11:00 Rite Two service with a great choir and music program. Because of our growing 9:00 service, we are a congregation with a large number of young families, and parish dinners and events often involve children and children's programs. Our "more mature" members have welcomed the influx of young families and their participation in the life of the congregation.

We have a number of opportunities for people to be involved in outreach programs, with food cupboards, Habitat for Humanity, CROP Walks for hunger and mission trips. In an increasingly frantic and difficult world, we offer a place of prayer and of resources for deepening our connection with the Lord of life. The development of a healthy spiritual life or "formation in the life of the Spirit", is the central focus of our life as a parish faith community.
