Trinity welcomes families of all kinds into a vibrant and diverse community of faith. Children, youth, and families are encouraged to participate in Trinity’s numerous and varied opportunities for worship, education, service, and fellowship.
Trinity offers 25 services throughout the week, including two on Sunday that are especially family friendly:
The Holy Eucharist at 9:15am on Sundays in St. Paul’s Chapel is a relaxed, engaging 45-minute church service designed specifically to be accessible to adults and children of all ages and those new to church, with a short sermon and music both traditional and new. Coffee and refreshments are served before and after the service.
The 11:15am Holy Eucharist is held on Sundays in St. Paul's Chapel. Children’s Chapel is offered during the adult sermon for those who wish to participate.

Whole Community Learning
At 10am on Sundays from September to June, parishioners of all ages are invited to learn together as part of Whole Community Learning, an intergenerational approach to Christian education that will provide opportunities for both large group and age-specific learning.
Summer Sundays at St. Paul’s Chapel
At 10am Sundays in summer, adults and families explore Jesus’s parables. Families with children are invited to come out to the west churchyard for a parable story and fun activity. Inside St. Paul’s Chapel, adults are invited to Community Bible Study, an open and inclusive, weekly Sunday Bible study that includes group reflection on the readings of the day. Drop-ins welcome!
