At Trinity on the Hill, we love to worship God and we invite you to join us either on Sunday morning or at one of our mid-week services. The “Worship Here” menu above has more detailed information on each service we offer.
As we worship, “we unite ourselves with others to acknowledge the holiness of God, to hear God’s Word, to offer prayer, and to celebrate the Sacraments.”
In the Eucharist, which is also called Communion, Mass, or the Lord’s Supper, we believe “the benefits we receive are the forgiveness of our sins, the strengthening of our union with Christ and one another, and the foretaste of the heavenly banquet which is our nourishment in eternal life.”
Through worshipping God and meeting Christ in the Eucharist, we are given the strength to “to represent Christ and his Church; to bear witness to him wherever we may be; and, according to the gifts given us, to carry on Christ’s work of reconciliation in the world.”
Whether you are a seasoned Christian, or a seeker looking to experience God for the first time, you are welcome to worship with us and feast at the table of the Lord.

What does worship look like at Trinity on the Hill?
We are a liturgical church, which means we follow a historic pattern of worship used since the earliest days of Christianity. As Episcopalians, we use the Book of Common Prayer at our services. The services are usually an hour long, though sometimes they can go about 70 minutes long. We sing hymns, hear three different readings from Scripture, listen to a sermon, pray for the needs of our community and the world, and share in the bread and wine of the Eucharist.
Is there a dress code?
People come to worship dressed in a wide variety of clothing. Some come in jeans and a t-shirt, some come in suit and tie. Some even come in shorts during the winter! However you dress, you will find yourself welcomed by our community without question.
What do you offer for children on Sunday mornings?
Pending the relaxation of COVID Restrictions as Prescribed by the Bishop of the Diocese of the Rio Grande: currently we are not offering a nursery or Sunday School.
For newborns up to the age of 5, we have a nursery that operates at both services. Parents are invited to use the nursery how they see fit. Some parents have their children in the nursery the entire service. Some parents retrieve their children halfway through the service so the children can receive the Eucharist. Some children don’t go to the nursery. At Trinity on the Hill, children are welcome to be in the sanctuary for the whole service. We aren’t afraid or bothered by the noise and the wiggles of little children!
At the 10:30am service, there is a Children’s Sermon followed by Children’s Chapel in our historic St. Athanasius Chapel. The children who attend Children’s Chapel will return to the sanctuary before the celebration of the Eucharist.
