Welcome to St. Paul’s/Trinity Anglican Churches!

We are two Anglican Communities within the Diocese of Huron, in the Deanery of Essex.  Located outside of Windsor, our churches have been together since the founding of St. Paul’s, Essex in 1882.  We continue to share a priest, secretary and office space and provide support for each other during fundraising and other events.  Summer and alternative worship opportunities generally alternate between the two churches enabling us to share worship and fellowship from time to time. Both church communities are accessible and welcoming.

COVID-19 Response:

Life has changed significantly in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19.  This has created space from which to explore how we are Church in our communities and beyond.  The result has been new ways of engaging in worship and reflection.

  • A resource for worship at home from Harvest Thanksgiving (Oct. 11) through Reign of Christ (Nov. 22) can be accessed here;
  • Worship videos are provided each Sunday which include scripture, a reflection, music and prayer. Click here for this past Sunday’s service.  You can access videos from previous Sundays via the worship menu or by clicking here.
  • As of Sept. 13, we have permission to return to worship in our buildings.   Information about what this looks like at each church can be found by clicking the church name: Trinity; StPauls
