At Trinity Episcopal Church, we believe that God has gifted each person with knowledge, a talent or skills to share. We know that inside every individual is the potential to make a positive difference in the world. We may be called to serve in a worship or educational ministry within the parish, or to help serve the wider community by providing food or clothing.
What's your calling? If you are interested in helping Trinity Collinsville, we are eager to learn more. Please email the parish office. We will answer your questions and hopefully connect you with a ministry that utilizes your gifts and fills your spirit.
More to come; this section is still under construction!
Christian Formation seeks to create a nurturing and hospitable environment where all church members can grow in mind and body, heart and spirit. This is achieved through programs and service projects both within Trinity and in the greater community. We are currently offering Bible Study on Tuesday evenings and a Confirmation Class for youth that meets on Sunday evenings.
Music is an integral part of worship at Trinity Collinsville. Sunday service incorporates hymns sung by our choir, accompanied by our lovely Fisk pipe organ, which is also heard in the prelude and postlude music.
We are committed to helping individuals and families in need -- especially children -- locally, nationally and internationally. Our Outreach group organizes programs throughout the year, including quarterly Lunch in the Park events in Hartford and the annual Quality Street Fair each fall.
The Pastoral Care/Welcoming ministry connects with and supports members of the Trinity community, whether they are longtime members or newcomers. During 2021, Trinity members conducted two "caravans" of Church members who went out in pairs to bring cheer, small gifts and a friendly visit to those in our church who chose not to leave their homes during the worst months of the pandemic.
Miriam's Closet provides gently used work attire to people of all genders who need an outfit for a job interview or a few items when starting a job. While the pandemic forced the Closet's temporary shutdown in 2020, adults who need items for a job search can contact Mimi's Closet by email at email@example.com.
Volunteers will again be needed to help sort, size and transport items once the Closet reopens later in 2021. For now, Miriam's Closet cannot accept more items. Anyone seeking to donate clothing is encouraged to contact Avon Gifts of Love, Canton FAVARH, or New Hartford Hands of Grace.
