After undergoing a visioning process in 2016, in 2017 our implementation team designed a number of projects that will help us reach our vision and fulfill Trinity's mission to fill its people with the love of God and share God's love in all the world.
See the summary for more information.
We, the congregation of Trinity Church of Northborough, Massachusetts, declare ourselves an

We will reach out with love to any and all people who enter our doors seeking
God with faith in Jesus Christ as Savior.
We recognize all human beings as worthy and loved by God.
We affirm and support all relationships based on love and mutual respect, and grounded in Christian faith.
We declare to the wider community that we are an open and loving community of faith for all people,
of every age, race, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, cultural background,
