Kairos, a national and ecumenical prison ministry, is looking for men to volunteer to continue the 25 years of service in 32 states and 9 countries to persons incarcerated in area prisons. The goal of Kairos is to change hearts and transform lives; men volunteering with Kairos are formed and trained into ministry teams through which God's love, grace, and mercy are expressed in a real and profound way to those in prison.
Centering Prayer continues every Monday, 7:30-8:45ish in the Cleaves Room.
Ongoing Food Collection
We are collecting food each week at every service to help supply St. Mary’s Food Cupboard in Chester. Please make this a part of your weekly offering: Bring non-perishable food items and place them in the baskets at the rear of the church.

eMail Newsletter, the "Constant Chronicle"
Trinity Church regularly issues an email newsletter called the Constant Chronicle. If you have not received an email copy of the Constant Chronicle, that probably means we don't have a good email address for you on file!

Partners in Ministry
Partners in Ministry works on the Swarthmore College campus to provide an ecumenical Protestant ministry to Swarthmore students. Founded by five local churches and the Friends Meeting, Partners has grown dramatically. Partners supports the Rev. Joyce U. Tompkins as a full-time ecumenical Protestant minister.
