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.
