Rites at Trinity

Anglican rites are generally centered upon the worship of God and the receipt of God's grace or blessing, where the two great sacraments are baptism and Holy Communion (or the "Eucharist").

A sacrament is an outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace.

Please feel free to contact us for more information regarding baptism, marriage, or other sacraments.

Holy Baptism

We welcome both members and non-members to partake in the Sacrament of Holy Baptism. If you are not presently a member we want to welcome you to our worship community. We invite you to make a serious commitment and become a member in your own right. Baptism preparation is required and offered by Trinity Anglican Church.

Our tradition informs us that those who are baptized grow in this commitment by regularly attending as a part of a faith community.

To express interest, please fill out an application (found at the back of the church after any of our services) and give it to the priest at that time. Please also inquire about when the next service of Holy Baptism is scheduled. Applications must be received at least a month before the baptism date.

Holy Matrimony

We welcome both members and non-members to partake in the Sacrament of Marriage.

Trinity Anglican Church offers Marriage Preparation Classes for those who plan to be married at Trinity, or for any couple.

We would love to talk to all couples that are interested in marriage at Trinity.
Please email or call us so that we can arrange to meet, and schedule times.

Marriage Preparation

Our Marriage Preparation is designed just for you and your fiance. We meet with you as a couple and focus on your unique relationship.

Our Marriage Preparation is not a test to see if you should be married. We begin with the assumption that you are meant to be together. In our time together, we will consider the many aspects of Marriage that can lead to conflicts down the road, and strengthens the sources of relational resilience.

Rev'd Greg has been offering Marriage Preparation for over 15 years. He and Gillian have been trained in Attachment Theory, Cognitive Therapy, the Satir Method, Family Systems Theory, and Emotionally Focussed Couples Therapy.

This program offers these insights to you, for a lasting and happy marriage.


A Word about the option of Banns:

Most couples obtain a marriage license rather than the option of having their banns read. Wedding banns are the optional public reading of a couple's intention to marry. This is an old legal tradition, intended as an opportunity for the community to inform the government if a couple ought not legally be married. Therefore, couples wishing to have their banns read must be well known to the congregation, being in the habit of attending Trinity Church. Others who request this may have banns read if accompanied by a government issued marriage certificate.
