They were finalists on America’s Got Talent in 2008 as part of the Taubl Family Band.

Opening – Matt Popp


Matt Poop in Georgetown TavernTrinity’s own Matt Popp will be opening for the Coffee House.  Matthew is a singer/songwriter from Orange, CT., who was a Trinity Choir member from 2000-2003, and has been in the men’s choir a total of five years.   He will be accompanied by guitarist  Jerome Goosman.

Matthew enjoyed many different kinds of music growing up, but country became his passion. In high school he developed a love for songwriting, turning emotions and experiences into music. During college, he started the band “Post No Bills”, and since its formation they have played all across Connecticut. Matthew continues to write music, and plays both with his band and on his own.

A video of Matt’s is here. More information can be found here: and Post No Bills on

LIfe at Trinity

As we pray, sing, serve others and learn together, we discover more about who God is in our lives. We realize our lives are intertwined with one another and that God is calling us to do something for the world in which we live.

Currently, hundreds of people pass through Trinity’s doors during an average week. We are usually bustling with activities; whether it is one of our three choirs practicing, committees meeting, or a social event, there is always something going on at Trinity.

We invite you to be part of our life together. At Trinity, there are many opportunities for involving yourself, for serving others and for growing in your spiritual journey.

Trinity people take adult and youth mission trips all over the country and beyond its borders. Locally, Trinity people help many important organizations carry out their missions: preparing meals for Columbus House, building homes for Habitat for Humanity, and finding numerous other opportunities to serve God in the world.

Trinity offers many educational activities and programs for children and adults. Each winter and spring, we offer different spirituality programs. On most Sundays, we offer exciting Sunday School classes for children and engaging forum topics for adults. We have two active and vibrant groups for school-aged youth.

As the largest Episcopal church in New Haven, we are fortunate to have many active programs and opportunities to see God at work in the world.


Being in a church is about building relationships. Trinity’s many organizations help to make our church a truly vibrant community.

Trinity’s lively and active parish community is led by volunteers who engage with each other through numerous committees, ministries and interest groups. Here are key contacts to guide your search for activities of interest to you.
