A doorway to compassion and courage
Trinity is a progressive, 21st century center of urban ministries and inclusive worship. Our 30 members are ministers-in-community. Our mission-field is our neighborhood – a lively interfaith, multi-ethnic, international community with great needs and greater opportunities. At Trinity, a lively center for worship and urban ministry, is being born.
The people of Trinity are a mixture of long-time local residents and transplants, some Bates College folks and a few ‘refugees’ from other denominations who love the Episcopal worship style and are committed to a kind of social Gospel that takes seriously the presence of the Spirit in worship and in everyday life. Rooted in the Episcopal Church tradition, we worship in a vibrant liturgical style with music from many traditions. All people, whatever your race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation and particularly those who do not find a welcome in other faith communities are welcomed here as beloved children of God.
Living our faith in daily life is important to us. We are a caring, creative faith community that invites personal spiritual exploration and encourages members to live the questions and serve our neighbors. We have helped start and partner with three community projects: Tree Street Youth (a nearby youth program), Trinity Jubilee Center (a soup kitchen and social service agency in our building), and The Center for Wisdom’s Women (a nearby drop-in center for women).
Our Bereavement Ministry offers comfort and support to people in need who have lost a loved one but have no local church or faith community. We provide, free of charge, a memorial service and burial of ashes in our memorial garden. We also offer our space for community concerts, a drum circle and other community events.
A scrappy group for seekers, sinners and saints sharing in a ministry of grateful service and empowerment. With Jesus as our model, we try to practice what we preach and live God’s LOVE in Lewiston. Please read the material collected here, but to receive the welcome you deserve, you will have to show up some Sunday for worship or drop by any of our ministry partners to volunteer. We are a church that loves and works! Come see for yourself.
