Greetings In the Name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior

We are so glad that you are considering worshipping with us. Whether this would be your first visit to Trinity or you are from a long line of Trinitarians, it is wonderful to gather in this place with you to give glory to Almighty God.

If you are new to Trinity, we hope to have the opportunity to get to know you and for you to get to know us. Immediately following each service, we gather in the Parish Hall for refreshments and conversation—please join us!

The form is intended for you to have a convenient way to communicate with me and others. Whenever it is that I may be of service to you, please let me know. I am delighted to be on this journey with you.

May the grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ, remain with you and all his saints,

Fr. Charles Smith

In the name of God welcome to Trinity Episcopal Church. 


We are pleased that you have found our website and hope to meet you in person soon.  If there is something you would like to know about Trinity do not hesitate to phone us at 757-393-0431 or to e-mail our rector, Fr. Charles, at


We are a group of people who love the Lord our God and seek to preach, teach, heal, and make disciples in all things we do.  We come from a variety of different backgrounds but what binds us together is our commitment to becoming better followers of Jesus Christ.  As Episcopalians the Book of Common Prayer is our theology book. We firmly hold that what we pray is what we believe and this shapes how we live. The best way to find out more about who we are is to join us for worship.


Like Christians everywhere, we believe in Jesus Christ, as expressed in the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds. We believe in the Holy Scriptures, understood through reason and tradition. We believe that the Sacraments, including Baptism and Holy Communion, are outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual graces. These beliefs are held in common by Episcopalians, and the Church also values a holy curiosity.
