Wherever you are on your faith journey, we invite you to learn more about us, to worship with us, and to join us!
The Rt. Rev. Ian T. Douglas, Ph.D. is the XV Bishop Diocesan of The Episcopal Church in Connecticut. The Rt. Rev. Laura J. Ahrens serves as the Bishop Suffragan of the Episcopal Church in CT (a bishop elected to assist the diocesan bishop).
The Episcopal Church is a fellowship of 2.2 million Christians in 108 dioceses throughout the United States as well as Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, the Virgin Islands, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Micronesia, Taiwan, and the Convocation of American Churches in Europe. The presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church is the Most Rev. Michael B. Curry. Bishop Curry, previously the Bishop of North Carolina, was elected during the 78th General Convention in June 2015 in Salt Lake City. He took office in November 2015.
The Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, a global fellowship of 73 million Christians in 38 self-governing provinces. The Archbishop of Canterbury is the Most Rev. and Rt. Hon. Justin Welby. While he is sometimes compared to a pope, a more accurate description of his role is that he is "first among equals" with his brother and sister bishops from throughout the Anglican Communion.
Inquirers Classes are typically offered in the spring. If you've been thinking about joining Trinity, this class can be helpful to you. (Long-time Episcopalians take the course as well!) It's an opportunity for you to ask questions about the Episcopal way of being a Christian, meet others who are considering joining this church and be introduced to Trinity Church. Adults prepare for Confirmation, Reception or Reaffirmation in the Inquirer’s Class.

Trinity Church is more than the people who worship at the corner of Prospect and Water Streets. One of the distinctive things about being an Episcopalian is the sense of connection and fellowship one has with other Anglican and Episcopalian Christians throughout the world.
