Welcome to Trinity

We believe God loves you. No exceptions.

Update:

In accordance with the bishop’s directive, Trinity will suspend all in-person worship services, gatherings, and meetings until the end of April. Corporate worship is central to what we do as a community and is a source of strength and calm during anxious times, so we are not going to stop worshipping. We’re just going to reconfigure how we worship and will be offering online worship services that you can find here as well as on our Facebook page. Our college students, young adults, youth, and children are also gathering online to pray Compline together.

The celebration of Holy Week and Easter is such an important time in the life of our church, and we are deeply saddened that we will not be gathering in person to observe those sacred days. There are, however, other ways to worship when we can’t be together in person. We will be sending out packets by email and regular mail with liturgical aids for celebrating this holy season in your homes. For families, there will be guidelines to help you talk to your children about the meaning of Holy Week and Easter. We will be providing materials in this packet to help guide you through rituals that you can practice at home, whether you are living alone or with others. We will also be offering sermons and prayers online to supplement what you’re doing at home.

My friends, we know that what we are offering still falls short of the deep joy we find when we gather around the Holy Table and take communion. We will gather again around that Holy Table very soon. In the meantime, consider the words of James Farwell, a professor at Virginia Theological Seminary and “look for the Tables around you and among you. God is still at the Table that is spread among us in our hearts, in our prayers, in our service. Welcome to the Feast that does not end, the love of God from which and from whom we are never separated.”

If you have any questions or needs, please, contact the office, and we will do all that we can to help, and, please, pray for all of those affected by this virus.

Welcome to Trinity Episcopal Church!

We are part of the Episcopal Branch of the Jesus Movement. We have been a worshipping community in Florence, Alabama since 1824, and our beautiful church has been at the corner of Pine and Tuscaloosa Streets since 1894. As part of the Episcopal Church, we are part of the Anglican Communion in the United States, descended from and partners with the Church of England and the Scottish-Episcopal Church.

What do we believe?

We believe in the loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world.

We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being; men and women serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of sexual identity or orientation.

 

We believe God loves you. No exceptions.
