At Trinity, prayer is the engine and rudder of our church, the power and direction behind all that we do. Though you may not always see it, it is right there beneath the surface and woven into the very fabric of who we are.

Would you like to grow in your prayer life?

Throughout the year, there are opportunities to learn and be equipped, whether it is a one-time workshop, a prayer gathering that provides creative ways to pray around a specific topic or theme, or the Prayer Ministry Training Course that runs for several weeks for those interested in exploring an aspect of prayer or in being on the Prayer Ministry team. Keep an eye on the website for event information.

One of the best ways to learn to pray is to receive prayer yourself from a prayer minister (see above). Another is to just start praying. Trinity has a 24-hour prayer room once a month and you can sign up to be in that room for an hour by yourself without distractions. Bathed in the prayers of those who have gone before you in that room and with no one else watching or listening, you will be surprised how fast the hour goes and in what beautiful ways the Lord will meet you there. All you have to do is take that first step! If you would like to be on the email distribution list to receive the 24 Hours of Prayer information, please write to
