About Trinity Lutheran Church of South Newstead

We are a rural friendly church. Sunday service is at 9:30am, and Sunday school is at 8:30am. We welcome all. Come and see...God is alive and well!  We are located in the town of Newstead, just outside the village of Akron, just down South Newstead Rd off of Route 5 (Main St.) and adjacent to the NYS Thruway.  Our original building can be seen across the street.  But as you know, a church is just a building.  The congregation defines it.
