What to Expect on Sundays
100 East Peace Street
Raleigh, NC 27604
Whether you are looking for a new church home or considering the claims of the Christian faith, you are welcome! We hope you'll visit us this Sunday!
Every Sunday we gather to worship our risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is a time to give thanks for what God has done as well as anticipate all that he will do in and through our lives.
What to expect
Many churches today have different kinds of services for different ages of people. At Holy Trinity we believe it's important for the church to worship together, regardless of age, background or taste. Making worship less about our preferences helps make our worship less about us and more about God. Our hope is that you will experience an approach to worship that is God-centered, creative, and powerful.
We do this through the use of both ancient and modern music, language, and art. This includes Christian prayers, creeds and scripture that have been used in the Church since its earliest days. Specifically, we worship in the prayer book tradition of the Anglican Church, which includes the sacraments (the Lord’s Supper and Baptism), singing (both hymns and new praise songs), and the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. All of these things free us worship God with all that we are - our hearts, minds, and bodies!
Our worship time typically lasts an hour and fifteen minutes and is followed by Foundations, our time of community discipleship where we learn what it means to follow Jesus together.
Most people dress semi-casual (some men wear coat and tie/women wear dresses) to casual (pants, jeans, etc.), but we don't really care what you wear! Everyone is welcome and we invite you to come as you are!
Family Worship and Childcare
We encourage children and their parents to worship together every Sunday. Children (K-5th grade) join us for community worship in the sanctuary before being invited to participate in Children’s Worship, a brief time of age appropriate praise and teaching during the sermon.

The love of God in Jesus Christ draws us into life with him and moves us to give him our whole lives – our hearts, minds and bodies. We believe that God speaks to his people - through his Word, the Bible, and by his Spirit, that lives within us. In loving response to a holy and gracious God, we follow him wherever he leads, and trust him in whatever he asks.
With this in mind, we gather each Sunday morning after worship for Foundations to ask what does it look like to follow him together as a people on mission? Over a three year period, we offer the following essential courses:
- Jesus for Everyone *Required for Membership
- Reading the Bible for all it's Worth (Understanding the God's story in Scripture)
- What do we Believe? (The Apostles Creed)
- Learning to Pray (The Lord’s Prayer)
- Faith and Culture (The Mission of the Church)
- Proclaiming Christ: A Jesus-Centered Gospel in a Me-Centered World (Apologetics)
We hope you’ll join us each Sunday morning after worship for this exciting and challenging opportunity to encounter Jesus and grow in your faith!
