Worship & Music
- Acolytes lead our worship by carrying the cross, candles, gospel book or banner, and by serving at the altar. This leadership opportunity allows them to learn the patterns of worship through direct participation. Trinity Church has opportunities for a large number of children and youth grades 4–12 to serve as acolytes. Most serve once a month. Contact the clergy if your child would like to participate in the ministry of the acolytes.
- Choristers Children third grade (age 8) and up are invited to join the Choristers, our children’s choir program. Choristers learn musical skills through a curriculum developed by the Royal School of Church Music. They sing three Sundays per month during the school year and participate in summer choral pilgrimages. Rehearsal is on Tuesday evenings from 4:30 to 6:30 with snack provided by Chorister parents. Contact Trinity’s director of music if your child is interested in singing.
- Communion ministers Children in grades 3–7 assist with the distribution of Holy Communion at the 10:00 Sunday liturgy. Training opportunities are scheduled throughout the year.
- Lectors Teens often serve as lectors, reading one of the scripture lessons for Sunday worship. Contact the youth coordinator if you are interested in this ministry.
