We seek to demonstrate the love of God in tangible and practical ways that result in lasting change. Whether it is as part of the connections team on a Sunday morning at Trinity, volunteering in a partner organization in the local area, or being part of a short-term missions trip overseas, we hope you will find a place where you can serve.
There are many ways that you can lend a helping hand, and put your unique skills, abilities and experiences to use, all the while getting to know those in the church family even better as you serve side-by-side.
For current serving opportunities, check out the Find Opportunities page and select "At Trinity."

A great way to get connected with local service opportunities is to join one of our Mission-Shaped Communities groups (MSC). For example, Trinity Men's Local Social Outreach MSC regularly takes on day projects that benefit local organizations as well as members of Trinity who are in need of extra assistance.
We also hold regular churchwide outreach activities, such as Trinity's annual Thanksgiving Food and Bedding Collection, backpack builds, Operation Christmas Child, and we respond to local emergencies.
Trinity's primary local partners:
- Building One Community (formerly Neighbors Link) (Stamford, CT)
- Chester Addison Community Center (Stamford, CT)
- Elinor Martin Residence for Mother & Child (New Rochelle, NY)
- Neighbor to Neighbor (Greenwich, CT)
- New Covenant Center (Stamford, CT)
Trinity has always felt called to serve those further afield and has a long history of serving the Lord in places such as Rwanda, Jamaica and Uganda.
Currently our primary overseas partners are World Vision, International Justice Mission, JENGA and Partners in Health.
The Valentine Family, members of our Trinity community, are currently serving the Lord in Uganda with JENGA, and our Student Ministries has a vibrant relationship with a community in Jamaica.
RECENT & UPCOMING TRIPS:
At Trinity we have a number of opportunities to be part of serving overseas.
A number of Trinity teams have traveled to work with JENGA in Uganda, and we will be taking another team in April 2018. If you are interested in learning more about JENGA or joining the team, please email Chelle Hayball at email@example.com for details and an application. There will be an informational gathering about this trip on Wed., Jan. 24 at 7 p.m. at the Ministry Center.
We are thrilled to be exploring a new overseas partner as we come alongside the work of Global Hope Network in India. We will be serving GHN in their vision to reach the most hidden of the world, through planting churches and bringing about the holistic transformation of communities through development projects. A team from Trinity traveled to a rural and basic part of India in September 2017.
