Welcome to Trinity

All are welcome here

Worship with Trinity on Sundays at 11:00 AM.

New to Trinity?

Welcome! We are glad you are here. We are doing things differently during this time of COVID-19, but our mission remains the same. Learn more about what Trinity has to offer during normal seasons of life on our New Here and Get Connected pages. We worship online at 11:00 AM Sundays.

Advent & Christmas

It’s hard to believe that Advent and Christmas are right around the corner! Trinity has LOTS of ways for you to experience the joy and celebration that come during this season. Between our Advent Kits, our Daily Advent Devotional, our Lessons & Carols Service, and three Christmas Eve experiences–including our Kids’ Christmas Pageant and a virtual congregational hymn sing, we are excited to share this time with you–together, while apart. Learn more about Advent and Christmas at Trinity using the buttons below.


Our Ministry Continues

COVID-19 Information

Trinity has been part of the West End community in Richmond since 1790. We are a dynamic family of faith focused on Jesus Christ and engaging in our community in a variety of ways.

Right now things look different, but our ministry continues. In uncertain times like this our faith is certain. Together while apart we continue to worship online, to gather in groups virtually, and to serve our community

Online Opportunities

Online groups for prayer, discussion, study, fellowship, and more. 


Prayer Requests

How can we pray for you this week?


Right now we worship together in one service online Sundays at 11 AM. In normal times we have multiple services in traditional and modern styles. 


In this COVID-19 crisis, we are very committed to caring for and protecting our community. We care for others by collecting food, making masks, and more.


During these times, your gifts help us support our church and our community. We are grateful for your generosity. Learn more about giving to Trinity.




As we continue to worship together online during the time of COVID-19, we want to incorporate more of Trinity’s faces and voices into our worship services. We will be sending requests for Scripture readers and more over the coming weeks. Here is our Video Request Box so that you can easily submit those and we can prepare them for worship.

If you are interested in offering a Scripture reading, a prayer, or a musical number of some sort, please send an email to web@trinityumc.net and we will be in touch.
