Holy Trinity exist to glorify God by forming fully committed followers
of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Holy Trinity seeks to be a model church by focusing on the spiritual transformation of people and equipping them for the work of the ministry. With God's blessing, we envision spiritual and numeric growth, enabling us to impact lives and increase our influence in the world for the sake of the Gospel.
If you're new to the Anglican way, you might think the worship at Holy Trinity seems like a lot of work. People stand, sit, kneel, then stand again...then kneel again - it's almost aerobic! There are also parts of the service where the average person has a script to follow, not just the leaders. Before it's all over, people are invited to the front of the church where they're offered a small piece of bread and a sip of wine. It's not complicated because all the words are always printed in the bulletin and participation is always done by the whole group. Still, Anglican worship differs from, say, going to a play where the actors entertain the crowd. In historic Christian worship all the people participate, none are mere spectators.
Also, at every service a person reads several Bible passages. (We print these in the bulletin, too.) Then our priest offers a talk (we call it a "homily," which is an ancient word that means, "to say the same thing" -- because that's what the priest is supposed to do; namely, he's supposed to say the same thing that the Bible talks about -- just in a way regular people can understand).
Naturally, we're thrilled when new people come and quietly observe what we do (and discover why we do it!). We never single out guests and we don't expect visitors to participate in something they don't understand. Many people are surprised, however, how deeply Anglican worship affects them, how profoundly they are moved by it.
So if you're looking for a pattern of worship that you will impact you on Tuesday every bit as much as Sunday, we have just the thing you're looking for!
