Trinity United Church is an integral part of the community of Peterborough, Ontario. At Trinity we espouse some common beliefs and approaches to living that have provided, and continue to provide, a foundation for binding us together and continuing to develop our “faith-based” community. We are called to love God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind and to love our neighbour as ourself.[Matt. 22:37-39]
Our neighbour includes people of all ages, genders, racial and cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, gender identities, abilities and family configurations.
Within Peterborough, we provide a sanctuary where members and visitors alike can experience an open caring environment and continue to explore what it means to live faithfully.
Trinity people provide strong lay leadership, enthusiasm, tolerance, flexibility and leadership in the community.
Trinity is an older church, but changing. Recently, many Trinity people have taken a lively interest in tackling perceived inconsistencies in traditional/orthodox theology.
Book and Bible studies have delved into works by John Shelby Spong, Tom Harpur and Richard Holloway. There is a strong desire to explore more of this, to connect our faith in a relevant way to our lives, such as the study opportunities provided through Living The Questions. At the same time, we seek and encourage dialog with other faith traditions.
We love music, good conversation, laughter and fellowship. The congregation is a mixture of people of all ages and educational/employment backgrounds.
Past guests to the Trinity Lecture Series has include Tex Sample, Lisa Wolfe, Diana Butler Bass and past UCC Moderator Jordan Cantwell.
Trinity became an Affirming Congregation in April 2016.
