Holy Trinity is a thriving parish in downtown Greensboro, N.C. Inspiring worship services are the cornerstone of our life together. We have a true desire to grow in faith, a strong call to care for one another, and a real heart for outreach. We believe that every person is a beloved child of God. We are open, accepting, and forward thinking. Friendships forged at Holy Trinity are deep and multi-generational. We would like to have more diversity in the congregation, but we are proud of the progress we have made.
Holy Trinity is located in downtown Greensboro and is seeking to emerge from the pandemic with a renewed sense of engagement and mission to the city. We are actively seeking ways to be anti-racist, to address housing inequalities, and to be part of the solution for the significant food insecurity experienced by many of our neighbors. Holy Trinity has a rich worship life, incorporating many musical genre and traditions. The campus also houses the Holy Trinity Day School, the Holy Trinity Music School, and the Second Breath Center, a modern-day wisdom school.
The parish recently undertook a major renovation of its physical campus and is discerning ways to increase their usefulness to those outside the parish community. The Youth department has free usage of a dedicated Youth House, located on the church campus.
