About Holy Trinity Church

Who are the people of Holy Trinity Church?

At Holy Trinity Church, God makes us who we are. God loves all of creation. God loves all people. God loves us. God loves you. This belief is at the heart of who we are. It has been part of who we are since 1730.

At Holy Trinity Church, our history makes us who we are. Our first baptisms were performed in 1730, making our church older than America itself. We’ve voted in every single presidential election, and we’ve seen every major social and civil movement.

At Holy Trinity Church, our tradition makes us who we are. Our tradition is to be committed to the community. This commitment inspires the work we do. We are passionate about breaking barriers and helping people like you make real, life-changing connections.

Hunger affects more people in Lancaster than you might realize. On Sundays, we welcome the entire community for a free breakfast. Friends and neighbors chat over hot meals prepared and served by our volunteers.

Our school supply drive each August is an opportunity for every child to receive needed items as they return to the classroom.

During the holiday season, we pair local police officers with children who have incarcerated parents. By taking these children shopping, officers help make Christmastime merrier. The ‘Shop with a Cop’ program helps children regard police as helpful and friendly.

Holy Trinity believes we can create change in the place we live, by sharing our talents, generosity, and time.

At Holy Trinity Church, we see each day as a chance to bridge communications gaps and build relationships with the people in our community. Every day holds the potential to touch lives.
