About Us


Trinity Episcopal Church in Lincoln, Illinois is a parish in the diocese of Springfield, part of the Episcopal Church and the larger the worldwide Anglican Communion. We are a small congregation that worships in what some would call a traditional style so we offer an intimate worship experience that incorporates both Scripture and Sacraments in a liturgy that has fed Christians for centuries. We use the Book of Common Prayer as our guide to worship. It has been updated through the years to use modern language, yet stays true to the precepts of the earliest Church.

We have been part of the life of Lincoln since the 1800s; in fact, our church building is over 100 years old. Many of our members are well known in Lincoln as people who give of themselves to make Lincoln and Logan County a special place to live and work.

The Reverend Mark Evans has served as our rector since 2011. Father Mark graduated from Nashotah House Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity degree in 2009. Prior to ordination, Fr. Mark worked in the investment department for two insurance companies for a total of 25 years. He is married to Sandy Moore and they have three grown daughters.

Worship


We have two services on Sunday mornings; the first begins at 7:30 AM in the chapel and the second is at 9:45 AM in the main church. Both services are the same except there is no music at the earlier service. That service lasts about 45 minutes. The second service has congregational singing accompanied by the organ, and the choir enhances the service with an anthem most Sundays during the academic year. It lasts a little over an hour. The Eucharist, or Holy Communion, is celebrated at both services every Sunday. In the Episcopal Church, any baptized Christian is welcome to receive Holy Communion.

On Tuesdays at 8:00 AM, we gather in the chapel for Morning Prayer and Eucharist. Morning Prayer has its roots in the Jewish pattern of daily prayer and the monastic offices. We read Scripture, recite the Psalms and partake of Holy Communion in a service that lasts about 30 minutes.

On Thursdays at 6:00 PM, we gather in the chapel for a healing service. The liturgy emphasizes healing through the power of God. Participants may, at their discretion, receive anointing with holy oil and laying on of hands by the priest for themselves or others whom they name.
