History

Serving, Worshiping, Reaching Out
for Over a Century

Trinity Episcopal Church was established in 1893, our name coming from both the Gospel and the Trinity River, which sustained early development in Fort Worth. Our first church building was completed in 1925 at 1501 Lipscomb Street. This location was sold in 1947 to the Amon Carter Foundation for use by the Panther Boy's Club (now the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Fort Worth). 

In 1948, the cornerstone of our current building was laid. The first service at this location took place December 5, 1948. Over the years Trinity has grown and is widely recognized as beautiful, serene place of worship.

Trinity's Archive Committee is dedicated to keeping the history of Trinity in safe and accessible condition for present and future parishioners. This team meets each Thursday morning to sort and file papers, legal documents, press clippings, photos, artifacts, etc., from all areas of parish life that tell the story of our buildings, worship, outreach and activities since 1893. The Archive Committee is happy to do research (genealogical or historical) for staff members and parishioners. Email archives@fortworthtrinity.org to learn more.
