Holy Eucharist is offered every Sunday. A shorter, simpler service with no choir and fewer musical elements is offered at 8:00 a.m. in Christ Chapel. The full Sunday service with choir is offered at 10:00 a.m. in the Nave. All attendees wear face-masks and follow posted physical distancing guidelines. This 10:00 a.m. worship service is also available to watch and hear online via our Vimeo channel or through our congregational website. (www.vimeo.com/trinityworcester)
In light of the ongoing risk posed by the coronavirus we invite you to make a responsible and healthy decision regarding your participation in our worship. Lutherans teach and confess that Christ is present in the assembly gathered around the proclaimed Word of God, in the water and the Word of Holy Baptism, and in the shared meal of bread and wine at Holy Communion.

Over the centuries, Lutherans have kept a special day to thank God for the freedom that the word of God grants to believers and to pray that with the help of God’s Spirit, the church will be continually reformed and renewed. You are invited to worship with us on this Reformation Sunday, in praise and petition to God for the ongoing health of the church.
