Spiritual Practices

Prayer Group: Thursdays at 4:30pm | ZOOM (already meeting)

Leader: Steve Horst | shorst@wesleyan.edu
Holy Trinity has had a small prayer group going for some time, founded by our former deacon, the Rev. Pat Jackson. Join us during Lent! The group meets for an hour every Thursdays from 4:30 PM – 5:30 PM.  We pray for our own needs, for one another, for our parish and the world.


Women/All Ages

Monday Morning Coffee Talks: Mondays at 10:30am | IN-PERSON
(beginning May 16th)

Leader: Emily Saska | smallgroups.holytrinityct@gmail.com
This is a group for all women of all ages, in all seasons of life, and anywhere in their walk with Jesus to come together for an hour to watch a short video (we’ll use various RightNowMedia series) and then discuss it together. We’ll have time to get to know one another and pray as well. We’ll meet in the Community Room (come to the Parish Office door). Just bring yourself, a journal, pen, and your favorite Bible! We’ll have the Keurig set up for coffee and tea, and maybe even some breakfast treats if anyone feels so inclined to bake/buy. *Moms, you’re welcome to bring your little ones!!


Social Justice, Racism & Reconciliation

Warm Hearts Fellowship: Fridays at 2pm | IN-PERSON (already meeting)

Co-Leaders: James Thomas/Shannon Demarest
People in crisis need to know that God is with them. People in crisis do not need mere good wishes—they need tangible expressions of God’s love. People in crisis need to be heard. Going along with the idea that people need to be heard, their true feelings need to be acknowledged.” 

The Warm Hearts Fellowship at Church of the Holy Trinity is a weekly gathering to which participants (the un-housed in our community) can look forward to. It is a place where comfort, warmth, and care are provided as tangible expressions of the love of Christ. Furthermore, the fellowship is a context within which participants can be introduced to Biblical themes that inspire courage, strength and hope, and bring comfort, peace and the assurance that they are not alone. The fellowship is a place of acceptance, a place where participants can request and receive prayer, and where a sense of belonging and community can grow. This group is meets every Friday in the Chapel at CHT every Friday from 2-4pm. *Fresh coffee is provided. Treats to share are always appreciated! Please wear a mask.


CO-ED/All Ages

Moving Dialogues: Tuesdays at 9:45am | IN-PERSON (already meeting)

Co-Leaders: Ekklesia (Elisa & Morley) | admin@ekklesiaballet.org
Join Ekklesia on Tuesday mornings for Moving Dialogues! Join the company dancers, director, and theologian of Ekklesia Contemporary Ballet as we explore social issues through the lense of the Psalms. The Psalms are a compilation of poetry which express the broad spectrum of human emotion.  Recognized as a religious text in Judaism, Islam and Christianity these words are familiar to us from many different perspectives. We will be using movement and discussion to explore a deeper connection to surface the relevance of these texts in our lives today. NO dance experience or religious associations are necessary.  Just bring yourself and a willingness to to move together and explore. These meetings are FREE and open to the public Tuesdays from 9:45-10:30 am at Church of the Holy Trinity at 381 Main St in Middletown. You are highly encouraged to attend in person, as you will get the most from the experience that way. Check our website for weekly updates at ekklesiaballet.org
