Please join us this Sunday as we celebrate the start of Advent!  We will share the sacrament of Holy Communion and we will be resuming Sunday School after nearly 2 years absence.  There will be live music beginning around 10:15 am with some special Christmas music.  It will be a wonderful way to kick off the Advent season!
Our worship service begins at 10:30 am (doors open at 10 am).  ​For those who are unable to attend in person, you will be able to watch on YouTube here Trinity’s YouTube Channel anytime or on Cogeco’s YourTV Channel 12/700HD the following Sunday morning at 8 am and 9 pm.

Mossy Church – Advent Spiral Wednesday December 1st at 5 pm (Laurentian Park Playground) Join us as we build an advent spiral and begin our journey towards Christmas.
Kids can participate in a scavenger hunt for special materials, and adults can join in the build. Then we’ll all walk the spiral to spread the light.
Remember candlelit Christmas Eve services? Re-experience the magic – in the beauty of nature.
Afterwards, please join us for a mug of hot chocolate. (Bring your own mug!)
We hope to celebrate the start of advent with you!
