Phil Jackson and Michael Bird welcome parishioners back to Trinity Church.

Reopening Trinity Church

After more than 14 months apart, we reopened Trinity Church for 11:15am Sunday worship on the Day of Pentecost, May 23, 2021.

As we celebrated the feast that marks the beginning of the Christian Church, how fitting, and exciting, that we were able to do so by gathering once again in person.

To join us in person for Sunday worship, you can find all the information you need below, including this video that walks you through what you can expect when you arrive at the church.


Below is a quick list of what you need to know before you arrive.

  • Doors will open at 10:45am.

  • Capacity will be limited to 140 people. 
  • Masks will be required inside the church.
  • Attendees will queue on the sidewalk north of the Trinity gate, facing south.
  • You’ll have four stops:
    • Health screening—you can fill out the form ahead of time at or by answering questions asked by Security staff.
    • Security screening—in addition to magnetometers, we are using x-ray machines to scan personal belongings. No weapons, dangerous instruments, food, or beverages are allowed.
    • Contact tracing—if you have not submitted your name and phone number as part of the online health screening, you’ll be asked to sign a log with your name and phone number for contact tracing. This will be required every week.
    • Seating—members of the Security staff will ask how many people are in your “party” and will escort you to your seats. Seats will be assigned; special seat requests cannot be accommodated, and switching seats will not be allowed.
  • Please bring your smartphone or tablet to view the bulletin. You can find a mobile-friendly bulletin by scanning a QR code when you enter the church, or by visiting WiFi is available via Downtown Alliance.

A Few Notes about the Service

To keep everyone safe:

  • There will be no passing of the peace, but we will greet each other in a friendly, physically distanced way.
  • Offering will not be taken, but donation boxes will be available.
  • Communion will be brought to parishioners at their seats. Communion will be “in one kind” (bread only).
  • There will be no nursery or children's chapel.
  • For now, only the 11:15am Sunday service will be offered in person and online. We will also continue to livestream all our services online, including the 9:15am Sunday Family service and weekday 12:05pm services. Click here for a full list of worship services.

We look forward to seeing you again in person!
