What to Expect on your Visit
Episcopal Liturgy (a word that means "work of the people") is taken from ceremony crafted from the earliest known Christian and Hebrew sources. The first Christians were Jewish and so their traditional forms of worship influenced the first forms of Christian worship.
Our principal act of worship every week is the Mass, or Holy Eucharist (Greek for "Thanksgiving") which recalls the Last Supper in which Jesus commanded his disciples to "do this in remembrance of me." There are two main parts of this service, first the Word of the Lord in which we listen to Scripture and learn about it in preparation for the Eucharist, and the Holy Communion during which the assembled body of Christians through the liturgical ministry of the priest blesses the bread and wine, making it the Blessed Sacrament of Christ's Body and Blood.
We share this Blessed Sacrament of unity in faith, taking our place in the one Body of Christ, the fellowship of all believers. Then we are sent out into the world "to do the work God has given us to do," to proclaim the Good News of God's love, reconciliation, and justice to the world.
We hope that in your visit with us, you will find a reverent and inspiring worship, along with the warm and welcoming embrace of our community.
In accordance with the teaching and doctrine of the Episcopal Church and the Diocese of Newark, Trinity Church welcomes and affirms all our LGBTQ+ siblings in Christ, and invites them to join us in worship and community. All are welcome!
