If you would like a paper copy and don’t have a printer available, there will shortly be paper copies available at Trinity.

One of Trinity’s strengths as a parish is the large number of parishioners who take an active role  in our worship, either performing a role during it the service, or functioning in a support capacity without which the services would simply not be the same.

Thanks to all the volunteers!

Would you like to be in this number?  There is something at Trinity for everyone to do.  Simply speak to Pastor Heidi or to the Verger, Geoff Brown, if this is something you would like to explore.

Rota for first quarter 2018

Here’s the rota for first quarter 2018

What’s a rota?   It’s the schedule of who, among our many wonderful volunteers, performs what roles in our Sunday services.

Our Verger prepares this (with a whole lot of input from the volunteers themselves) a week or two before each quarter ends and gets it “out there” so that people can plan their schedules as far in advance as possible.

Without further ado, here’s the rota for first quarter 2018!

Thanks to all of our volunteers for all that they do for Trinity!

Instructed Eucharist

Instructed Eucharist at Trinity

November 19 was the Youth Sunday for November, and, in addition to the young people assuming most of the roles in the service, they took on a significant part of the instructed Eucharist we hold from time to time.   The instructed Eucharist is basically a series of planned interruptions of the service in which readers provide commentary about what has just happened and about what is going to happen next.  We don’t conduct them frequently because the narratives do disrupt the flow of the service, but when we do, most people find it to be a learning experience.

It’s not just for the young people that we hold these, by the way.  Most adults can still learn something about the way our principal worship service is conducted and why it is the way it is.  For that reason we’ve decided to provide the script for this year’s instructed Eucharist  so you can read over what you heard on Sunday.
