Christian Formation

During COVID-19 we are meeting via Zoom at 1:30pm every Sunday afternoon after the worship service. We’re open to all who wish to join the discussion as we watch video series as well as conduct book studies.

Education for Ministry (EfM)

EfM is a four-year lay ministry training that equips participants for active lay ministry not only within the Trinity community but in other congregations and the wider world. The program has been developed for the parish setting by the Episcopal School of Theology at the University of the South in Tennessee; it is widely used throughout the Episcopal Church and other denominations.

The following groups are not meeting during COVID-19, but we hope to be able to start up again soon!
