Trinity this week – April 7, 2024 – Holy Humour Sunday

Hello Trinity Friends,

This Sunday April 7th is Holy Humour Sunday!  Reverend Kathy will lead our worship this morning.  In Sunday School the children will be exploring what it means to be “Easter People”.  


Our  technician was working on the lift this week and he had some good news to share. He anticipates the work on the lift *should* be completed in about 4 weeks! That is sooner than we had originally been told. We regret the inconvenience this has caused to those of you who rely on the lift to attend worship services and rehearsals. We are looking at ways to serve those who are unable to attend worship due to the lift being out of order.  Please feel free to reach out to us to discuss alternatives should you wish to.

There are many more announcements and community events listed below – please keep reading!
