Welcome to Holy Trinity Anglican Church in the Parish of Hammond River, Quispamsis, NB! Located on the banks of the lovely Hammond River this unique Gothic design building is home base for a group of friendly and caring people dedicated to providing a helping hand to those in need far and wide. The people of Hammond River celebrated 150 years of Anglican presence in the area with year long celebrations in 2013 (1863-2013). We continue to engage in active mission activities and welcome anyone who would like to be part of this wonderful community. In 2013 we welcomed a shared ministry opportunity with a sister church, St. Augustine's Anglican Church in the Parish of Quispamsis and in 2016 welcomed a new Rector, the Reverend Michael O'Hara and his wife, Sheila.
Our vision for the future is clear - We are a community of Christians. We dedicate ourselves to serving God and each other. We vision a future of collaboration with other church communities to help lead a continued and growing worship of God and service to each other. We will do this with our hearts, our hands and our souls through a shared use of resources. We humbly as God to lead us and to make His wishes clear to us as we work to build a future for His people.
