Our Services

What are services like?
Our 8:00 service uses Rite I (more formal) language and is a quiet service with no choir. Our 9:00 service is a lively service with progressive language and an opportunity for children to attend a concurrent children's worship service during the sermon. The full choir sings at this service. The 11:00 service is a choral eucharist, which means that many parts of the liturgy are sung. It is the most formal and lengthy service of the three, and very beautiful.

What is the community like?
The church is a mix of ages and ethnicities. We have many different family configurations. We have many students, professors, and others who live and work around Princeton and central New Jersey. Some have been coming to Trinity their entire lives, and many have just found us recently. All are welcome.

What if I'm not a Christian?
The Episcopal Church is a great place for people who are curious about Jesus. We are non threatening and happy to partner with you as you explore the Bible, Church history, our liturgy and anything else that might be of interest to you.
