SERVE OUR CITY

 

A HOPE WORTH SHARING

We are so loved by our Creator that he sent his only son, Jesus Christ, to live and die for us. Through his death and resurrection, we have the hope of life with him — a life of dignity, value and purpose.

That is a hope worth sharing with our city and our world! 

 

LET GOD USE YOU

At Holy Trinity Anglican, we continue to facilitate strategic partnerships with local and global ministries who are sharing the hope of Christ. We encourage every member of our community to find at least one way they can put their faith to work (James 2:18) and share the hope they have received. Our ministry partnerships provide opportunities that range from one-time projects to relational ministry, from hours a year to hours a week. Serve individually, as a group or as a family. Let God use your time, energy and resources to help change lives and to help change you!

 

INTERESTED IN MINISTRY PARTNER SUPPORT?

Every year Holy Trinity Anglican Church gives away 10% percent of its operating budget through grants and gifts to help support the work of Christ-based ministries, both locally and globally. Inquiries regarding the grant request process can be sent to outreach@htcraleigh.org.

We also work for systemic solutions statewide, promoting just policies and practices through advocacy, training and leadership to address the roots and repercussions of human trafficking in North Carolina.

JusticeMatters is grateful for the many volunteers that have and are currently serving as part of the team. Due to the highly sensitive and confidential nature of our work, many volunteer positions necessitate specialized training.

In addition, we need volunteer interpreters, for numerous languages, with certain experience and expertise. With the opening of the Raleigh office, we currently have several volunteer needs including administrative support.
