What’s Happening at Trinity

Coffee Before Church: we will be serving coffee in the sanctuary on a trial basis to encourage pre-service gathering for those who wish to visit beforehand or have coffee during the service.

Parking: A reminder there is no parking on Duke Street anytime between Frederick and Queen St. since the LRT line has been put in. There is limited parking on Duke between Frederick and Scott St.

FREE HOT BREAKFAST: We want as many people as possible to hear about the FREE hot breakfast being put on by The United Church Foundation on May 18 from 7:15 am – 9:00 am at the Hamilton Plaza Hotel. We have a special guest speaker who has just returned from Kenya, as well as speakers from local congregations and organizations who have received grants from the Foundation telling us about their amazing work. RSVP is required by May 16th 1-866-340-8233.

Guest Worship Leader: Rev. Roy Holton will lead us in worship this Sunday May 14th.

United Church Remits will change the way we serve God: Trinity congregation is invited to explore and discuss these remit changes on Sunday, May 14th and 21st after worship. The Board of Trinity will vote on these matters on June 5th. Copies of a summary sheet and copies of more extensive Study Guides are available in the Narthex for you to pick up or by request from the office through email

The Trinity Book Club: will meet on May 17, 1:30, at the home of Vi P. 519-744-0139. The book for discussion is "The Nightingale" by Kristin Hannah. The story is set in France during the German occupation of the 1940's and gives a lasting impression of life in this period, as well as the effect on family relationships. New members are welcome.

Will You Participate?: The Worship Team has approved a special service for May 28th., using an idea proposed by Peter O. It will be a service of hymns and personal reflections from a number of individuals. We want to invite a selection of people to choose a hymn or piece of music which speaks to them of their faith, or their understanding of God and share their thoughts with the congregation for about 3-5 minutes. Would you be interested in taking part and sharing a reflection? If there is a huge positive response we may have to hold a second service later. That would be awesome! Please contact Barbara B. at 519-743-2554 for more details.

Single Ladies Dinner: May 30, 2017 at 6:00 pm. Pot Luck Supper at the home of Jane M. Directions to follow after May 17.
