"Thrust out a little from the land," (Luke 5:3) and founded upon a rock, may it ever point the way to Heaven and allure men and attract them, win them and fit them and train them for the Temple that is not made with hands." -- Annie Clarkson, 1896.

  • COVID19

    Bishop Love has asked all parishes in the Diocese of Albany to cancel services for now, so there will be no Sunday or Wednesday noon Eucharists at Trinity Church. However, we will stream our Sunday service (with sermon) online.  Watch this space for more information. We will also make available audio and text versions of sermons.  In addition, the Diocese  is also posting videos of services on Sundays. These you can find on the Diocesan Website under the 'media' link.

    The Trinity office will be closed for the foreseeable future. Monica McKinnie will be monitoring the Trinity e-mail so you can either e-mail from this website (which will get forwarded to the Trinity e-mail) or e-mail trinitypotsdam@gmail.com if you have any pastoral needs (or otherwise). She will make sure the right person is contacted to help you.

    We encourage you to follow Trinity's two facebook pages: 1) the official Trinity page for  information and faith reflections: here: and 2) a group page where we may have conversations with one another: here.

    Whatever you do, stay connected to one another, "encourage one another and build one another up" (1 Thessalonians 5:11) and remember, "fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand" (Isaiah 41:10).

    In the 16th century, when Martin Luther was dealing with an outbreak of plague, he wrote these words that apply equaly  what is happening in our own situation today, 

    “I shall ask God mercifully to protect us. Then I shall fumigate, help purify the air, administer medicine and take it. I shall avoid places and persons where my presence is not needed in order not to become contaminated and thus perchance inflict and pollute others and so cause their death as a result of my negligence. If God should wish to take me, he will surely find me and I have done what he has expected of me and so I am not responsible for either my own death or the death of others. If my neighbor needs me however I shall not avoid place or person but will go freely as stated above. See this is such a God-fearing faith because it is neither brash nor foolhardy and does not tempt God." (Luther's Works, Volume 43, pg. 132 )
