What to expect when you arrive:
Our church building and most of our campus is on the north side of Rt. 50. Our main parking lot is also located there. On Sunday mornings our main lot fills up, and overflow parking is available immediately opposite on the south side of Rt. 50. Handicap parking is available in our main parking lot, but the ground is level, and all of our parking areas are handicap accessible accessible.
Where to go:
As you enter our campus, you will see three buildings off our main courtyard.
The church sanctuary is on the right. On Sundays you may enter through the main door for worship. During the week, the side entrance to the sanctuary (under the covered walkway) is available.
The building directly across the courtyard is Cox Hall, which serves as our Parish fellowship hall. This building also houses our Sunday School classrooms, choir rehearsal room, and church kitchen. During the week, the Community Music School of the Piedmont uses the lower level of Cox Hall.
To the left is Peard House, which is where the church offices are located. The church office business hours are Monday-Friday from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM.
Restrooms are available throughout our facility, but are most easily located on the upper and lower levels of Cox Hall.
Visiting with Children
We LOVE children, and we want them to feel welcome in God's family. We offer Sunday school every Sunday morning at 9:30 AM for children in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade in the lower level of Cox Hall. We also offer a children's chapel for the children up to 5th grade during the 10:30 AM worship service.
Youth in 6-12th grades are welcome to join us for our youth group, Episcopal Youth Community (EYC) on Sundays from 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM. Many special trips and events are also offered.
Nursery care is offered in the Nursery building on Sunday mornings.
The children's playground is available for your family to use throughout the week.

Our grounds are usually open to the public, and we invite you to walk the gardens, use the playground, and experience God's presence. All we ask is that you respect the sacred and holy nature of this space.
If you walk between the Peard House and Cox Hall, you will you will find the Stable Tour office on the left, as well as the Nursery building where our youngest children are supervised during worship.
If you continue on the path past Cox Hall, you will find a children's playground on your left. If you stay on the stone path, you will enter the Church Cemetery. Beyond the cemetery, you will come to a large field. On the left side of the field there is a stand of trees. There you will find a large wooden cross, a fire ring and other amenities of our Outdoor Sanctuary.
There are several other buildings on our property. Of particular interest are the Thrift Store (also on Rt. 50 about 50 yards east of the main parking lot), and the Upperville Library (between the parking lot and the Thrift Store). The Thrift Store is typically open on Saturdays from 9:00 AM - Noon, with proceeds supporting the mission efforts of the church. The Upperville Library is purported to be the nation's smallest lending library.

What to expect in Worship:
We celebrate Holy Eucharist at 8:00 a.m. (Rite I) and 10:30 a.m. (Rite II) each Sunday, and at noon on Wednesday (Rite II). From time to time, we have a service of Morning Prayer or an Evensong. During Holy Week, and on other significant occasions of the liturgical year, we hold many special services.
We are an open worshiping community, and we welcome all to join us. All baptized Christians are invited to join us at the Lord's table and participate in Communion. Those who prefer not to receive Communion are invited to come forward to receive a blessing from in the traditional manner by crossing your hands over your chest when you come to the communion rail.
If you would like healing prayers, a team of intercessors is available during communion and after worship services in the chapel area on the right side of the sanctuary.
If you have any questions during your visit, feel free to ask an usher or an ambassador (identified by a large "Ask me about Trinity Church" button. We'll do our best to help!
