In addition to wineries, we are surrounded by micro breweries too. Trinity is a micro church, meaning that we have an intimate worship space and by intention, do not own property or have a lot of “stuff” to weight us down. We can morph and change as we need to, or as the community changes within and around us.
Since 2016 we have moved from a huge historic Neo-gothic church building, worshipping by the traditional customs of The Episcopal Church in a formal sanctuary, to a an intimate and elegant storefront where we have innovated our worship style as well as our practice. Nearly half of our congregation is new to Trinity since then, and so we have been renovated from the inside out as a community, even as we shed our outside buildings. Not only do we practice change, change is our practice in many ways.
Trinity Place is an outreach program of Trinity Church, an open and inclusive space not requiring any religious affiliation on the part of those using it. Our parish office and “the bar” are located adjacent to the worship space, and we offer its use to any program or organization that shares our greater mission.
We hope you will come find your place with us. Contact the church office to find out where you might like to jump or ease your way in: 315-325-4216 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Like all Episcopal congregations, we are led by a council called the “vestry.” It is an old British term reflecting the original cultural heritage of The Episcopal Church, which has since diversified and moved beyond its Colonial roots. Like the founding fathers and mothers of The Episcopal Church that also constituted the origins of the nation, Trinity democratically elects the vestry at an Annual Meeting and they, along with the priest and staff, lead the congregation.
A constellation of ad hoc committees form, change, die, and reform as needed to provide for coffee hour, pastoral concerns, program, outreach, and worship. You are very welcome to join in! Contact the parish office for more information. (See above)
