Trinity Music Vespers and Events @Trinity
Join us for Trinity Music Vespers!
Trinity Music Vespers, previously known as "Jazz Vespers", has changed it's name to open up a chance to include more themes and a open the doors for more people to join us. The evenings are not completely a worship service and not completely a performance. It borrows elements from both of those things, offering opportunity for reflection through the notes of music and verse. At its core what Vespers really offers is reflection through music.

Art Deco Weekend
Art Deco Weekend is a special festival in Napier to celebrate the Art Deco Era, and commemorate the city rebuilt in Art Deco style after the devastating 1931 Hawkes Bay earthquake.
Our 10am worship will be themed to celebrate the era. As with the whole of the weekend, wear your Art Deco outfit to church - an era when there we would wear our "Sunday Best".
In the evening, we have our Trinity Music Vespers Service, at 7pm.
