Children are not the future of the Church, they
ARE the Church.
We worship in a classic
Christian style influenced by ancient rituals that
speak to today’s world. Services are held daily
Service to the Community
Trinity has long supported social justice issues
and maintains a food pantry and hot lunch program
for neighbors in need.
We believe God created us for the enjoyment of
each other’s fellowship and continual spiritual
growth in a Christ-centered community. At Trinity,
there is a place for you to connect with God and
We’re glad you’re visiting Trinity Church in the Central West End’s website, and we’d be even happier if you’d come visit us in person. At Trinity, you’ll find a community that worships God in a classic Christian style, makes a difference in the world through acts of service and justice, and grows into a deeper relationship with God and neighbor. No matter who you are, you’re invited to stop by anytime and experience for yourself the love of Christ practiced at Trinity Church.
Jesus summed it up best when he said, “You shall love the Lord your
God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your
mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like
it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two
commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
This is what we believe at Trinity, the rest is details.

Theology on Tap
Join a group of folks in their 20s and 30s. Some of us are members of Episcopal churches around St. Louis, but not all of us. We gather on the first Tuesday of each month for good food and good conversation. Theology on Tap seeks to create a "low pressure" environment for Episcopalians and not-so-churchy friends to have conversations about faith, ethics, politics, and life today.
Facilitator: Jon Stratton
1st Tuesday of the month at 6:30 PM at Dressel's Pub (Euclid Ave)
