From the start, Trinity Church has had a heart to proclaim Jesus in a faithful, compelling and relevant way that welcomes and draws people of all ages in.
Stanwich Congregational Church in Greenwich launched a Sunday night worship service with high school and college students in mind, led by Ian Cron. As attendance grew exponentially, it continued past the initial summer, quickly outgrew its space and relocated to the sanctuary of Second Congregational Church.
Trinity Church was “birthed” from Stanwich Church to become an unaffiliated church with Ian Cron as founder and Senior Pastor. With a passion of “telling an ancient story in a brand new way,” its mission was to help people investigate and celebrate what it means to follow Jesus Christ.
Trinity Church launched its first morning service, at Central Middle School in Greenwich, to accommodate the many families joining the church.
Following Ian Cron’s departure to pursue other opportunities, Drew Williams accepted the call to serve as Senior Pastor of Trinity Church. Drew came to Trinity from the Church of England where he had served as a vicar in a large church outside of London.
Shortly after Drew Williams' arrival, Trinity launched Mission-Shaped Communities, groups of five to fifty people meeting to grow in faith, experience community and serve the world around them in a particular way.
The vision of Trinity Church was re-imagined. We would be a church committed to “transforming our the world through the love of God.”
We dream of a day when:1) Everyone at Trinity is connecting with others, growing in their relationship with Jesus and serving our world; 2) There are worshipping expressions of Trinity Church in towns across Fairfield and Westchester counties; 3) The Trinity community is resourced from a larger, “everything but Sunday” ministry center in the Greenwich area; 4) Trinity is distinguished by God’s abundant generosity and compassion to the poor and marginalized, locally and further afield; 5) Leaders in every sphere of influence are equipped and released by Trinity to play their unique role in the advance of the Kingdom of God.
On October 1, 2017, we became "one church in multiple locations" with the launch of a morning worship service in Darien, CT. Also that fall, the Greenwich worship services moved to Greenwich High School for the school year.
On May 13, 2018, Trinity added a second service at the Darien location, bringing us to four Sunday morning worship services between the two locations.
Yes! We offer Trinity Kids, our dynamic children's ministry, from birth - 5th grade. Age-appropriate curriculum starts at 18 months. If it's your child's first time attending, please come 10-15 minutes early to check in.
Feel free to come as you are. Trinity is a casual church and this is reflected right down to what people wear to Sunday services. On a given Sunday you may see someone arrive in "business casual," but sit down next to a couple in jeans or a woman in running clothes. Please feel free to wear whatever makes you comfortable.
After each worship service we have a Coffee Hour complete with baked goods and usually some gluten free items. You are invited to stay awhile, introduce yourself and enjoy a cup of coffee.
Trinity Church was intentionally formed apart from any denomination. As a community of faith, we desire to create a space where those who are far from God can come, experience His love and feel at home. Denominations typically mean more to those already involved in a church community and we want those who do not regularly attend church to feel welcome. We continue to exist as a non-denominational church body governed by a Council.
The website is a great resource, plus we have several regular emails that go out (Trinity Weekly, Drew's Blog, and parent newsletters). Click here to subscribe to the email list(s) of your choice.
Since its founding in 1999, Trinity Church has existed as a church without our own Sunday worship space. While we are always open to the possibility of a building which has Sunday worship space that God may lead us towards, we see being a mobile church as a strength as it allows us the flexibility to pick up and change locations when needed. It also allows us the financial freedom from a mortgage and building maintenance for a large space. A challenge of being a mobile church is that we may be meeting in several different locations (plus homes) in a given week, dependent too on availability and affordability. To address this, in 2016 we purchased the building at 5 River Road in Cos Cob and began renovations. In December 2017 our Ministry Center opened and is a space for midweek groups and for the Trinity community to gather.
