Welcome

Welcome to Trinity Episcopal Church Charlotetsville!

If you are looking for a church home, we feel that Trinity has much to offer.  Our worship in the Episcopal tradition couples the dignity and beauty of ancient practice with contemporary preaching.  We have a full program for spiritual growth, including Bible study, classes, and small fellowship groups.  There are a multitude of ways you can participate in meaningful ministry to those in need, both here and abroad.  And we have joy together through many kinds of fellowship.

Like you, each parishioner at Trinity is on a sacred journey of faith and life. We value the uniqueness of each journey, trusting that God actively pursues and meets us right where we are.

No matter who you are —you are welcome here. Everyone of every age, race, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical or mental ability, or economic status is accepted and embraced as a friend.

We warmly welcome you to join our church family and live out your faith through worship and fellowship.

Here are answers to frequently asked questions about Trinity.

WHAT HAPPENS IN A SERVICE?

The service lasts about an hour. All services include Scripture readings, a sermon (about 15 minutes), and Holy Communion (also known as Holy Eucharist).

COMMUNION?

At Trinity, we practice Open Communion, which means that we welcome everyone to Christ’s table to partake of bread and wine. You do not have to be a member of our church, or any church, or even baptized to take communion. You may join us at the altar for communion, come to the altar for a blessing, or remain in your pew during communion.

WHAT DO I WEAR?

You may wear whatever you want. Some people wear dresses or suits and ties, but many more are business casual, and still others wear jeans.

WILL I BE ASKED TO GIVE MONEY?

We provide an offering plate during our services for our members and regular attendees to place their offerings. If you are a visitor or guest, please do not feel obligated to give.

WHAT DO MY KIDS DO?

Children are welcomed and loved at Trinity, especially during our worship services. We offer activity kits for children remaining in the sanctuary and childcare for younger children in our nursery.

ANYTHING ELSE?

Please contact us with any other questions you may have. We would love to hear from you.
