Who we are?

Little Trinity is a growing Christian community located in the heart of “old town” Toronto.

Over 160 years ago, merchant William Gooderham established this church for the workers at his distillery and grist/flour mill, constructing a Gothic Revival church that’s now considered one of Toronto’s architectural gems. Gooderham chose to worship with his employees and so began Little Trinity’s tradition of strong lay leadership drawn from all walks of life.

In the 1950s, local industry relocated from our neighbourhood to more suburban locations taking both their business — and residents — with them. During this time of change, Little Trinity became known as a “gathered church,” with members spread across the city.

Our neighbourhood once again faces change as tens of thousands of new residents move into the community. This is an exciting time at Little Trinity as we seek to know Jesus and make him known in this city and in our neighbourhood.

Mission Statement

Little Trinity Anglican Church is a “Gospel community, worshipping God and dedicated to sharing the love, truth and power of Jesus Christ with friends and strangers.”

Guided by Scripture and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we are committed to:

  • Renew our role and responsibility as a neighbourhood church while continuing to be a gathered church;
  • Model the unity of Jesus Christ in a diverse community of individual backgrounds and circumstances (Galatians 3:26-28);
  • Equip and send one another to serve God in our families; our places of work and study; our neighbourhoods; our church ministries; our city; our country;
    and our world.

What We Believe

We believe the good news of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection is relevant to all people and has the power to transform our lives, our city and our very world. We believe we were made to love God and to express that love through serving others in word and deed.

At Little Trinity we live out this faith informed by our Anglican roots, connecting this good news of Jesus with our contemporary world.

Our Anglican Roots

Little Trinity, along with Anglican Christians around the world, affirm our belief in historic Christianity as revealed in the Bible and summarized in statements called creeds: The Apostle’s, Nicene and Athanasian Creeds. These creeds along with the 39 Articles of Religion and the Solemn Declaration from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer express the central beliefs of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
