Trinity Evangelical was formed in 1981 and initially held services at the Lucy Hurlin Theatre at ConVal Regional High School. The church moved to its location on Route 202 in 1984 and experienced a season of growth and expansion that continued into the 1990s. During that time, Trinity and its members helped launch a number of new churches in the area. The church has hosted AA meetings as well as other community organizations. Its annual Clothing Exchange provided good used clothing to families across the region, many of whom came every year to outfit their children for the season. Church members developed close relationships with the staff and residents of Phoenix House, a residential treatment program in Dublin. The church hosted well-known ministers and musicians, musical theater productions and large conferences for worship leaders. Trinity also ran a Christian school, Trinity Christian Academy, on the premises for many years.
Recently the church has seen a decline in numbers, and after much discussion with other church groups and consultants, members voted on Jan. 15 to transfer the mission and assets of Trinity Evangelical to Next Level Church, a church with a dynamic approach to reaching and serving individuals and families in the 21st century, with Peterborough now becoming its 10th location in just 8 years. Next Level Church already has thriving church locations in Concord, Epping and Conway, New Hampshire, in Massachusetts (Worcester and Salisbury), Saratoga, N.Y., Saco, Maine, and Chateauguay, Quebec, Canada.
Next Level is a loving, relevant, life-giving church, Next Level Church is designed to be comfortable to long-time Christians as well as those who have never set foot in a church. Next Level provides programs for all ages, from infants to young adults, singles, couples and seniors. To that end, significant renovations to the church property are planned before a Grand Opening in April 2017.
