Trinity Episcopal Church is a lively, inter-generational, and joyful congregation in Charlottesville, Virginia. Its history is unique.
Now over 100 years old, Trinity was established as an African-American mission church. It played a leading role in civil rights and social justice in a city scarred by the ‘massive resistance’ to school integration in the late 1950’s, and by the “urban renewal” that virtually destroyed the local middle-class African-American business and housing community (including the original site of Trinity) in the early 1960’s. In the 1960’s, Trinity membership intentionally determined to embrace reconciliation by reaching out to our White partners in civil rights work to create a multicultural church. Most recently, Trinity's Bread & Roses Ministry and Whitefeather Project have sought to address local manifestations of structural and institutional racism.
Our vision is our mission statement: Trinity Episcopal Church is an intentional, multicultural Christian community of reconciliation, transformation and love. We welcome visitors for our Sunday service and fellowship beginning at 10:30am.
Trinity Episcopal Church is a eucharistically based faith community of neighbors and families celebrating different understandings of the Christian faith within the Episcopal Church.
