Trinity UMC has been on what is now the corner of Park Avenue and Duval Streets in downtown Tallahassee for over 188 years. We are located in the center of the city within walking distance to the State Capitol and Florida State University campus. The campuses of Tallahassee Community College and Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University are within a short drive.

Buildings and Property
Our facilities have grown over the years to the point that they now span over half a city block. They include an auspicious main sanctuary, intimate James Chapel, comfortable and versatile Moor Hall, classrooms, Trinity Preschool facility, meeting rooms, parlor, and library. Outside are our Prayer Garden, Memorial Garden, and playground.
Part of our ministry is sharing the beauty and utility of this campus whenever possible. We host many events in our sanctuary, our more intimate James Chapel, or in Moor Hall, our large meeting and fellowship area with full sound and audio-visual capabilities. Policies for the use of Trinity United Methodist facilities and application forms are available for your reference.
The John T. Sewell Prayer Garden was created to be a beautiful place for prayer, meditation and fellowship for our church family for many years. In 2010, in response to the desire of many church members to have a suitable location on our church grounds for the permanent placement of cremains, The Trustees instituted an addition to the Prayer Garden, called “The Trinity Memorial Garden: Beyond the Garden Gate.”
For those who choose cremation, the garden is a sacred place to memorialize the gift of a precious life. Ashes may be scattered within the garden to symbolize the return to nature of their earthly bodies. The beauty and simplicity of the garden has become a living memorial to those who have gone before us and offers us a place for quiet reflection and contemplation.
Cremains are scattered or buried within the Memorial Garden soil by the Pastor, without location markers, so that they become a part of the life of the Garden. Hence, no urns or containers are buried there.
Memorial leaves, engraved with the full name, dates of birth and death, are inscribed on a bronze Memorial Tree located within the Garden. Additionally, a rose can be inscribed to signify the placement of those whose cremains are in the Memorial Garden. More than thirty Trinity families have chosen this honored place to commemorate their loved ones.
Members of Trinity United Methodist Church are invited to place a gold leaf on the Memorial Tree in memory of a loved one, even though the cremains are not in the Memorial Garden.
The leaves may be purchased for $200; these funds are exclusively purposed for maintenance and beautification of the Garden.
If you would like to remember a loved one in this manner, please contact the Church Office (222-1120).
