Members of Holy Trinity are involved in a wide variety of charitable and outreach efforts. As you learn and grow to experience Jesus’s unconditional love for you, you may feel called to be a part of one of these ministries, or bring your own to our church! Read about our Communications and Evangelism. Please contact the church office for more information, and read about our efforts in the community and around the world right here! We do God’s work while supporting our wider community, and friends, members and visitors of the congregation. If you would like us to consider your ministry, join us any Sunday and speak to a member of our vestry.
Outreach Ministries – Support for our communities and the world!
Holy Trinity Thrift Shop
Our Thrift Shop donates funds from the store to support many local charities! We always need volunteers!
Religious Community Services (RCS) – Women’s Domestic Violence Shelter in Clearwater
Holy Trinity sponsored a free painting classes for the women and we donated clean and sanitized undergarments and bedding. We also regularly support meal preparation and food collection for RCS food pantry.
Humane Society of Pinellas
We sponsor the annual “Blessing of the Animals” with our furry friends and the Humane Society, and collect pet food during that event each year on the Feast of St. Francis – Patron Saint of Animals.
EPIC (EMPATH Partners in Care)
Holy Trinity co-hosted an HIV/AIDS Awareness Roundtable where social service providers, healthcare providers and a mobile testing unit were deployed to raise awareness and improve the standard of care for those in our community suffering from HIV/AIDS. Through this event we established relationships with Huddle in the Harbor and EPIC (Empath Partners in Care) and the AIDS Partnership. We annually provide a dinner at Good Samaritan Church in Pinellas Park, serving food to those suffering from HIV or AIDS and their families. Email the church for more information. We are looking for someone to enhance our HIV/AIDS ministry!
Alcoholics Anonymous – an open Big Book group meets at our church every Wednesday night at 6:30PM and every Sunday night at 6:30PM. ALL are welcome. Struggling? There is HOPE for you!
KAIROS Prison Ministry
Members of our congregation selflessly donate their time, love and support to incarcerated men currently in Zephyrhills Correctional Institute. KAIROS is an ongoing fellowship with persons in prison which begins with a three day short course in Christianity. The course and the ministry is modeled on the Cursillo/Walk To Emmaus format. The mission of the Kairos Prison Ministry is to bring Christ’s love and forgiveness to all incarcerated individuals, their families and those who work with them, and to assist in their transition to becoming a productive citizen in their community. They know that men in prison feel unloved, alone, and most have no friendship with God. Some of us in the free world are already imprisoned by the way we live our lives, but the KAIROS program teaches them that they can be in prison and still be free. Contact the Church Office to learn more about how you can help.
Prayer & Share meets the 4th Friday of each month at 6:30 p.m. for a potluck dinner and 7 p.m. for the program. It is an open grouping of parishioners and guests who share the love of Christ with each other and encourage each other in their daily walk with Christ. The program may consist of a DVD series, a guest speaker, or a topical discussion–it is always Spirit led and directed. Please contact Charlie Kunath for more information.
Dominican Republic Mission Trip Annually a team from Holy Trinity travels to the Dominican Republic to work on a variety of building projects for the needy in partner communities in the D.R. Read about our upcoming trip! Funds are donated to assist the schools and volunteers also provide their own funds. Details from a prior mission trip here.
F.E.A.S.T. Holy Trinity parishioners regularly donate food to the Palm Harbor FEAST food pantry. F.E.A.S.T. provides food for over 3,100 needy people every month in Pinellas Country.
Rector’s Discretionary Funds for Outreach
Our rector can provide assistance to needy members in the community from funds collected annually for this purpose. These funds are at the sole discretion of the rector.
Homeless Empowerment Program
Our church regularly supports HEP through people-support and held a fundraising event called Sip ‘n Savor which raised over $14,000 to help both organizations.
Farm Worker Ministries
Holy Trinity members have long supported Farm Worker Ministries through Christmas Gifts for Children. Every December our congregation’s generosity provides diapers, blankets, and food items for the farm workers. The sub-standard housing many of these workers must endure to harvest the crops we enjoy on our tables is often very cold in the winter months. Providing diapers helps ease financial burdens during the holidays when most of these families are truly strapped for funds. Our efforts usually focus around the Plant City, FL area.
Episcopal Relief and Development
Our church donates a portion of our Thrift Shop profits to Episcopal Relief and Development for disaster assistance worldwide.
