Activities
Holy Eucharist – Sunday 9:30 AM

Come join us for Holy Eucharist and music, with choir singing on two Sundays of the month. Through the course of the year, we use Rite I and II, and a variety of Eucharistic prayers. The service is followed by coffee hour, and at times, an adult forum.

Holy Eucharist – Sunday 8 AM (Summer only)

This is a less formal Eucharist, with the intimacy of standing around the altar for the consecration. The service is held on Sundays from Memorial Day through Labor Day, and also on Columbus Day. We use Eucharistic Prayers from Enriching our Worship. It is normally a quiet service, with times of silence, and on occasion, music. A coffee hour follows this service.

Sunday School

1st & 3rd Sundays Educational opportunities are available for all youth and children, downstairs during the service. Everyone joins the worship for communion.
2nd Sundays A “children’s sermon” is offered to help make the sermon more accessible to children of all ages.
4th Sundays We highlight the participation of our youth members who already are involved in our life, and give them visible roles in the service.

Prayer Group (2nd Wednesdays)

The Prayer Group meets monthly, usually on the second Wednesday of the month, and prays daily for those in need. These members also read the intercessions each Sunday.

Eucharist at Golden View Health Care Facility (2nd Thursdays, 11 AM)

A service of Holy Eucharist is celebrated with residents of Golden View and members of Trinity. We sing hymns, read scripture, pray and share communion together. Golden View is located at 19 NH Route 104 Meredith, NH 03253. All are welcome.

Adult Education (Wednesdays)

5 PM Wednesday School Education Program.
6 PM All are welcome to share in a pot luck supper.
7 PM An informal celebration of the Holy Eucharist, honoring the saint of the day, including prayers for healing and anointing, and a shared conversation in place of the sermon. This is replaced by Evening Prayer on the first Wednesday of the month.
   

Kid’s Night Out (Sunday Evenings)

Once a month, on a Sunday evening (4-6:30), 6th - 12th graders are invited to come and share in activities, and have a meal together, which normally is prepared by the group. Teenagers from outside the congregation are very welcome to attend.

Education for Ministry (Tuesday Evenings)

Trinity is hosting an Education for Ministry program, which meets most Tuesday evenings during the academic year. This is an educational and spiritual program which includes Bible Study, theological reflection, and a focus on how each of us is invited to share in ministry.

Stewardship
The mission of Trinity Episcopal Church, Meredith is to worship God and strengthen our spiritual life through prayer, education and outreach. Working together as the family of Christ, we seek to share God’s love, throughout our church, the community, and the world. Gifts of time, treasure, and talent are integral to our Christian experience.

Trinity Church is self-sustained by the financial commitments of our parish community. Your financial support provides the funds for the operating budget of the parish, salaries for our rector and office staff, Christian education, and our music program.

Furthermore, this commitment allows us to bring Christ into the world through our commitment beyond our doors.

  • A minimum of 10% of the profits from each of our sponsored events goes to support outreach and ministry in our local community and abroad.
  • Each year, Trinity donates gifts and money to the Children of Incarcerated Parents (ChIPs) program, to allow each inmate to give each of their children a book and another item as a Christmas present. Our teenagers help in purchasing gifts with money that has been donated by church members.
  • Ongoing collection for the local food pantry
  • Support for the Children of Hope Foundation in Haiti, and their feeding and education ministry.
  • Support for the Masiphumelele Project in South Africa which was begun by a Trinity member.

If you are interested in supporting our work, please contact the parish office at 603-279-6689 or churchoffice@trinitymeredith.org.
