About Us

Our story begins in 1942 when Trinity UMC was birthed in the Oakwood neighborhood near downtown Raleigh. After many years of thriving ministry, the church began to feel it was becoming disconnected from the community. So in 2016, it made the bold decision to re-launch as a completely new church dedicated to engaging the community in new ways. In Sept 2017, Open Table was born – a new church building upon the foundation of this incredible history. With a new staff and a new vision Open Table is beginning to take shape. We began weekly worship in September and will officially launch in January 2018.

We want to be a church that is: 

  • Christ-centered
  • Diverse
  • Inclusive
  • Justice-based
  • Generous

We do this through the practices of:

  • The rhythms of liturgical worship
  • Eating, praying and studying together
  • Building relationships and partnerships with those in our community
  • Listening to each other, learning from one another, and serving each other
  • Giving our time, money, and resources to those in need
