Led by Trinity Clergy, a congregation of all comers gathers at 2 PM each Sunday to sing, offer prayers, celebrate a simple Eucharist and partake of a meal provided by volunteer organizations.
In the summer of 2008, Trinity on the Green partnered with community agencies and clergy from other churches to launch “Chapel on the Green.” This outdoor service began on All Saints’ Sunday in November of 2008. It is based on the Common Cathedral in Boston.
Every Sunday at 2:00 pm people gather on the Upper Green (directly behind Trinity) for a brief (25-30 minute) service of Holy Eucharist in all sorts of weather. We do not cancel services due to weather.
We use grape juice to stand in solidarity with those who do not drink alcohol. We believe this is God’s table and all are welcome to receive Coummunion.
ALL are welcome
This service has attracted a wide variety of people across New Haven: those interested in social justice, the homeless or anyone that does not feel comfortable in a church building.
Join our drum circle before the service at 1:30 pm. Following the service, we distribute bagged lunches to all those in need.
