The Congregation of the Trinity is a long-standing Methodist church in Towson, Maryland, with a rich history of traditional worship and community involvement. Established in 1839, the church began as a small group of Episcopalians meeting in the Epsom Chapel. In 1968, the church was renamed Towson United Methodist Church to reflect the merger of the United Methodist and Evangelical Brethren denominations in the United States. The church is located in the historic Hampton subdivision of Towson, a suburb of Baltimore County, Maryland.
The building is an impressive sight, with its prominent spire and dome reaching 235 feet (72 m) into the sky and its capacity for 1,000 people. The spire is topped with a 9-foot (3 m) gilded porcelain cross that can be seen from 3 to 8 km away on the ring road. The building was constructed in 1958 by Alfred Hamme University and is built of red brick in the Georgian architectural style. After World War II, attendance at major Protestant churches increased significantly in the United States.
