About Trinity Lutheran Church

We are ...
located in the town of Newstead, just outside the village of Akron. Just down South Newstead Road off Route 5 (Main Road) and adjacent to the NYS Thruway, our original building can be seen across from our current building. But as you know, a church is just a building. The congregation defines it .

We are ...
a congregation of over 135 years celebrating and living for the Lord. We enjoy sharing our history.
See a brief history of our congregation here.


We open our arms and welcome you to come and visit with us. Worship in one of our services. Celebrate the Lord in one of our many activities and ministries.

so that through him all might believe.
