Despite the high turnover rate at Trinity, some traditions have survived for a surprisingly long time:

  • 2012 was the 40th anniversary of the establishment of a choir at Trinity.

  • 2012 was the 40th anniversary of having vicars/interns at Trinity.

  • 2017 was the 60th anniversary of Trinity's founding.

  • Easter breakfast and an annual outdoor worship service with picnic are long standing traditions which are even older than 40 years. (If you are a former member of Trinity and know when they started, please let us know!)

  • Easter breakfast before service on Easter Sunday

  • Outdoor worship service with picnic on third Sunday in June
