What to Expect on Sunday

Parking

The church is located at 62 West Buffalo Street in downtown Warsaw, NY.

You can park in front of the church on the street, or in the lot directly next to the church. There is even more parking in the public lot across the street, behind the police station, complete with an EV charging station, if that’s how you roll.

If you come in right through the front door of the sanctuary at 10:30AM on a Sunday, you’ll be just in time to take a seat before the music begins to play.

Our church is not yet entirely handicapped accessible, but we’re getting there! Our new sloping front walk makes it easier for those on wheels to enter. (Full disclosure: the front doors require a helping hand, and there is one small step between the sanctuary and the parish hall building from within.)

Christian Education

Adult Bible Study takes place on the second Sunday of every month at Noon in the Parish Hall. Trinity also hosts a Community Bible Study for seekers at Vertical Cafe on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, at 2pm. A New Age Book Group hosted by Trinity also meets each Wednesday at 4pm at the Warsaw Library Meeting Room. For more details on learning opportunities, read on here.

Children’s Sunday School is during the service, and one of our teachers will gather the children just before we begin singing the first hymn. The children will rejoin us just before Communion and finish the service in the pews with us. If perchance one of our Sunday School teachers is absent or unavailable, we have brightly colored bags at the entrance of the church for the children’s use during the service.

All children are always welcome to remain with the adults who brought them, even if they’re noisy or fussy. Kids are welcome to join Mother Sare at the altar during the Eucharistic Prayer so they can have the best view of what’s going on.

Worship, etc…

10:30 AM, Sunday morning! (Looking for a schedule of special services? Check this out.) Our worship comes straight from the Book of Common Prayer, and if you’re not familiar with it, you can just follow along – it’s all printed out in our worship bulletin. Our hymns are straight forward, and shower singers are always welcome. Our preaching is dynamic, so expect to take home food for thought to chew on throughout your week. You can listen to past sermons here. Our coffee hour right after the service in the parish hall is fantastic, so bring your appetite!

All of our services are in the somewhat contemporary language of Rite II. (It won’t be like making your way through Shakespeare, though a shocking amount is iambic…)

The parish hall exterior door is located to the left of the church, down the sidewalk (between the sanctuary and the pizza joint). To enter the parish hall from within, exit the sanctuary at the door to the left of the altar, go through the hallway and all the way back.

Our restroom is located in the office, just within the parish hall.

Who is Welcome?

Everyone is welcome to worship at Trinity, and all who are called by God to receive communion are welcome to do so, regardless of age or background. Anyone may receive just the bread if they prefer not to drink wine, and a gluten free option is available upon request. If anyone prefers to receive a blessing rather than communion, a blessing is always offered.

Trinity is a liberal leaning church, in a large sea of conservative options in Wyoming County. So, if you’re slightly (or significantly) left of center when it comes to God, Trinity may be what you’ve been looking for.

If you’re new and visiting, please consider filling out the contact form found in the back of your worship guide. We don’t spam, but it’s hard to send you a thank you card otherwise. 🙂 It’s also a great opportunity to tell the priest you’d like to talk, if you’d like to talk.
