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!
You can also see a copy posted at Trinity, or pick up a printed copy there as well.
Thanks to all of our volunteers for all that they do for Trinity!
Here’s a summary of what’s planned for Christmas 2017 at Trinity Lime Rock!

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.
