Trinity Traditions

 Despite the high turnover rate at Trinity, some traditions have survived for a surprisingly long time:

- 2012 was the 40th anniversary of the establishment of a choir at Trinity.

- 2012 was the 40th anniversary of having vicars/interns at Trinity.

- Easter breakfast and an annual outdoor worship service with picnic  are traditions which are even older than 40 years. (if you are a former member of Trinity and know when they started, do let us know!)

 

Events which generally occur in the course of every year:

·         Easter breakfast before service on Easter Sunday

·         Outdoor worship service with picnic on third Sunday in June
