Trinity Church (also known as Old Swedes' Church) is a historic church on the northwest corner of Church Street and King's Highway in Swedesboro (originally called Racoon), in Gloucester County, New Jersey, United States.
The congregation was founded as a Swedish Lutheran parish in 1703 after local residents tired of crossing the river to Delaware or Philadelphia to worship. The first minister, Lars Tollstadius, arrived in the area in 1701. The church was the first Swedish congregation in New Jersey and originally it worshiped in a log building. Services were held in Swedish until 1784. The building added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
