Worship is the heart and soul of our life at Trinity. We learn and grow together in faith through our prayers and fellowship, reading and reflections on Holy Scripture, and the preached Word. We are also fed and nurtured together through the Spirit at the Holy Table in the Eucharist (Holy Communion) as we join our life and commitment to God in Jesus Christ.
