The Downtown Norfolk campus of Trinity Church began in 2017 with a desire to reach the city of Norfolk. With the unique and historical city as its backdrop, it's no wonder that the Downtown Norfolk Campus of Trinity Church meets in an equally unique and historic location — the Nauticus, a maritime museum that houses the battleship USS Wisconsin.
PLAN YOUR VISIT
WHAT'S THE VIBE?
The Downtown Norfolk campus serves a wide variety of people. From members of the military and single adults, to families young and old, they all come together as one body here. People can feel free to come in jeans and a t-shirt or their Sunday best. Whatever your story is, you are welcome here!
At our services, you will see a mix of the glory of the old, with the promise of the new. We have liturgy and hymns mixed in with modern worship. We’d love to have you join us one Sunday!
A TYPICAL SUNDAY
Once you arrive at Nauticus, head upstairs to the second floor where we will have donuts and coffee available while you fellowship. If you have young ones, this is the time to get them checked in for their services. At 8:30 am, we start Adult Bible Study.
Our service will start at 10:00 am, so make sure to grab a seat for you and your family! We will have a time of musical worship, announcements, and a message. One Sunday a month, we also take communion together.
WHERE DO I PARK?
Free parking is available for our campus at Norfolk's Town Point Garage, located across the street from Nauticus on West Main Street. Please bring your ticket with you to the service and have it validated at our Connect Center. When exiting the parking garage, hand the validated ticket to the attendant. If there is no attendant, press the call button and let the operator know you are with Trinity Church: they will open the gate.
"Community group is family. Since I don't live near my family, I depend on getting together weekly with my 'adopted family' to share struggles and joys with, to spend holidays with, and to grow closer to God with. God says he sets the lonely in families, and for me that has been my experience with my community group."
CAMPUS REACH FOCUS
JACOX ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Jacox Elementary School is located in one of Norfolk’s most impoverished neighborhoods. As a Title I school, Jacox serves a population of students that is 96% Black, and all of the students at the school receive free breakfast and lunch. The Downtown Norfolk campus has been building a relationship with the school, coming alongside Jacox to serve these teachers and scholars by providing school supply giveaways, backpacks, new shoes, teacher appreciation gifts and meals, and providing volunteer services.
We have a robust curriculum designed to lead your children through the entire Bible over five years! Our Trinity Kids staff and volunteers are ready to meet you.
Our teenage years often define who we are for the rest of our lives. At Trinity, we take student ministry seriously; creating a tight-knit group of Christian friends and leaders for your teens to lean on.
