WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN I VISIT?
You will receive a warm welcome at the Church of the Holy Trinity. Greeters will welcome you as you enter the church and provide the service bulletin. The bulletin contains everything needed to worship with us.
We invite you join us for fellowship following the service. We welcome your questions about the parish and your reaction to our worship. We encourage you to sign the guest register in the back of the church and also to fill out a connect card so we can keep in touch with you and let you know the various activities happening at the parish.
We are a liturgically traditional parish. Regular Sunday worship at the Church of the Holy Trinity is the celebration of Holy Eucharist from the Book of Alternative Services of the Anglican Church of Canada. Our service maintains the rituals of the church which have been celebrated by Christians for nearly two millennia. The service includes readings from scripture, a sermon, and prayers. All these build up to the sacrament of Holy Communion at which we share the bread and wine, which we understand to be the real presence of Jesus Christ.
All people are welcome at our worship services, including children of all ages. Soon we will be providing an age-appropriate component to our worship which is offered concurrently with our normal worship service. (scheduled to begin on October 30, 2022). The children will hear an age-appropriate sermon and offer prayers together prior to rejoining their families before communion. Periodically, our Sunday morning worship will be a "Family Sunday," during which children will remain in church with their families and a children's sermon will be offered during the service.
HOLY EUCHARIST 8am (Spoken)
Our 8:00 am service is a spoken service which uses language as found in the 1962 Book of Common Prayer. This service is typically 45 minutes in length.
CHORAL EUCHARIST 10am
Our 10:00 am service uses more contemporary language and can be described as a family service. A choir leads the church in Hymns and occasionally offers Psalms, Anthems and Motets. Please note: infants and children (and their accompanying noises) enliven this service. This service usually lasts about an hour and 10 minutes.
EVENSONG 4pm (As Announced)
Evensong is offered utilizing the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. This service originates from the monastic hours and has been part of Anglican worship since the development of the 1549 Book of Common Prayer.
ONE FINAL WORD
Attire ranges from beach casual to coat and tie. Whatever you feel comfortable wearing is fine! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact one of our ushers or seek out a member of the clergy or vestry following the service. And remember, no matter where you are in your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.
