A little about Trinity
Trinity Episcopal Church is a thriving parish in Florence, Alabama, on the banks of the Tennessee River. Florence is part of a metro area known as The Shoals that includes the cities of Muscle Shoals, Sheffield, and Tuscumbia as well as smaller communities. Trinity draws its membership from a two-county area with approximately 150,000 residents in the northwest corner of the state near both Mississippi and Tennessee. With good schools, affordable housing, walkable downtowns, and a high quality of life for people who love the outdoors, good food, and music, Florence and The Shoals provides a wonderful community in which to live and work.

Trinity is located in the heart of downtown Florence, just steps away from shops, restaurants, parks, historic neighborhoods, and the University of North Alabama, a public regional comprehensive with almost 9,000 students. Our beautiful, historic church building was constructed in 1894, and our grounds include a spacious park open to the community. Trinity has active and lively ministries for people of all ages and stages of life.
