Everyone is invited.

Welcome!

The people of Trinity Church welcome you.  We are a congregation that embraces all people, from all faith traditions or those who are new to a journey of discovery.  We celebrate our diversity.  We are a church community worshiping and exploring the mystery of God, deepening our spirituality, and caring for each other.  We reach out to those in need in Branford, the region and in the world, practicing love for our neighbors. We welcome you.

On these pages you will find information about worship, descriptions of ministries, programs, and activities available to all at Trinity. You may also call the church office or email us to obtain further information that’s helpful to newcomers.  A warm welcome to you!

An invitation.

For those who identify themselves as "spiritual but not religious," once you look around this website, you will see the many wonderful things that this congregation believes in, hopes for, and accomplishes. But words and images on a website cannot tell you what it feels like here or what you might experience. Only coming through the red doors and spending some time with us will do that and so we invite you. We invite you so that we may be a blessing to you. And we know that in so doing, we will also be blessed. We do not promise easy answers. Instead we commit to being joyful companions on the journey.

Through The Red Doors

A bit of history… The congregation now known as Trinity Church was founded in the 1700s. Our iconic white church on the town Green was built in 1852, in English Gothic style.  Trinity’s bell, weighing 2,500 pounds, was cast in 1869 and also served as Branford’s first fire alarm until 1925. The sanctuary is beautifully embellished with striking stained glass windows, three of which are from the Tiffany studio. In 1916, the Parish Hall was erected and served as a hospital for the Town of Branford during the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918.

Through the Years

Trinity’s purpose remains steadfast. We are members of the Body of Christ, worshiping together in an inspiring setting, with meaningful liturgy and uplifting music, all informed by our passion for a transformed world of justice and peace. From the Branford Food Pantry to the mountains of Haiti, Trinity Church is committed to loving our neighbors.

Upcoming Events

Sunday, July 2
We celebrate Rev. Sharon’s birthday following the 10 o’clock service.

Monday, July 3
4:00 PM Columbus House Ministry Each month, your donations of Dinty Moore beef stew, noodles, and canned green vegetables help to feed over 80 people. Volunteers take a turn baking cake for dessert, or providing salad ingredients, or serving in the kitchen. This is your chance to let team leader Bobbe Otis know how you can help.

Thursday, July 6 (and every Thursday through August 24)
Branford Jazz Concerts on the Green Trinity is excited to offer an "Instrument Zoo" during the concert intermission. This is a hands-on opportunity for children who want to try an instrument-any instrument-and who might be a little restless too! Do you have an instrument you could lend, or better yet bring yourself, and show a child how to play? The activity would probably be half an hour long.

Sunday, July 9
Following the 10:00 service, all team leaders and parties interested in the annual Fair, should gather in the Guild Room. Remember that the Fair has been moved to coincide with the Library Book Sale on September 30th. We need to order tents, so it's time to commit to who's doing what, and how best to organize ourselves under the tents. Can't come to the meeting, but have great ideas or questions? Please be in touch with Rev. Sharon or Ann Freeman.

Sunday, July 16
We'll head outdoors on two Sunday evenings this summer to worship in the sanctuary of nature. Join us on July 16th and August 13th at 5:00PM at Branford Point for worship summer style (guitars and no sermon!). Of course, there will be a pot luck cookout to follow! Stay tuned for more...

Saturday, July 22nd Moveable Feast (A Progressive Dinner)

The Moveable Feast will start at 5:00 PM for appetizers and beverages. At 6:45 PM everyone will move to their dinner venues from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM. Brenda Feniola has been commissioned to cook the same entree for all homes, so you know it will be good! Dessert will follow. A $20 donation per person attending is suggested. RSVP to the church office.


Tuesday, July 25
7:00 PM Compline/Healing Prayer
If you, a loved one or friend, is in need of healing, or if you want to offer up healing prayers for our broken world, please join us. This is a quiet time to pray for healing, peace, and non-violence. Join with others to pray together for people listed on the weekly community prayer list. Please invite family, friends, and neighbors.
