Church featured in national documentary

From Alabama-

When Bill King came to Trinity Episcopal Church nine years ago this week, there were only eight people in the pews.

Fast forward to 2012, when the sanctuary was nearly filled for Palm Sunday services.

That growth and renewed vitality has not gone unnoticed — Trinity will be one of just a handful of congregations across the country featured in the Episcopal Church USA’s “Transforming Churches, Changing the World” project.

The documentary project, which is in its second year, highlights churches that are growing and making a difference in their community.

Last year, the short films focused on larger congregations in Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia and other cities. However, this year the spotlight will be on smaller churches, much like Trinity.

“(We are) doing profiles of churches that are growing and giving insight into how they are growing,” said Olivia Silver, editor and producer.
