Thank you for visiting our website. Trinity Church is a small but vibrant Episcopal congregation serving the Seacoast region of the Diocese of New Hampshire. We strive to live the message of Christ, in which all are welcome. Trinity Church is the home of the Hobbs House Community Center, which serves those in need through our very busy Trinity Food Pantry, and various ecumenical non-profit community programs that base their operations here.Walking a middle way between Roman Catholicism and Protestant traditions, we are a sacramental, worship and service-oriented church that promotes thoughtful debate about what God is calling us to do and to be.We hope to provide a space that welcomes both the spiritual seeker and the seasoned disciple so that people from many starting points can find their home in God with us. If you are seeking a spiritual home or are just exploring the life of faith, we hope you will walk with us on that journey of discovery.We are in a shared ministry with Christ Episcopal Church, 1035 Lafayette Rd. (Route 1) in Portsmouth. This new model of shared ministry allows for creativity and the use of joint resources in witnessing and outreach to the Seacoast community while allowing us to maintain our unique, individual presence in Hampton and Portsmouth.We look forward to welcoming you this Sunday.The Rev. David “Chip” RobinsonVicar
