In him you have brought us out of error into truth, out of sin into righteousness, out of death into life

(Book of Common Prayer, p. 368). 

Welcome to

Trinity Episcopal Church!

Trinity Episcopal Church is an Episcopal parish in Apalachicola, Florida and one of sixty-two congregations in the Episcopal Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast.

Charted in 1836, Trinity is Apalachicola's historic "first church." Services have been held here for over 165 years. It is with great joy that we thank God for his blessings and for the beauty of this place.

As Episcopalians, we are followers of Jesus Christ, and both our worship and our mission are in Christ’s name. In Jesus, we find that the nature of God is love, and through baptism, we share in his victory over sin and death. 

The Book of Common Prayer states that the mission of the church is "to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ."  
BCP Catechism p. 855

This is our mission at Trinity.
We welcome you.

Almighty God, on this day you opened the way of eternal life to every race and nation by the promised gift of your Holy Spirit: Shed abroad this gift throughout the world by the preaching of the Gospel, that it may reach to the ends of the earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
