Trinity Weekly Update – May 21st

Hello Trinity Friends! 

Just a reminder that this weekend Manitou Conference is holding its General Meeting here at Trinity and also St. Andrew’s United Church. Delegates from across the Conference will be attending this weekend.

An important reminder that Trinity will *not* be having a regular worship service at 10:30 am this Sunday but will instead be hosting a special Celebration of Ministry Service at 1:15pm

Manitou Conference Public Events: 

All are welcome to attend The Heavenly Hosts Concert – Saturday May 23rd at 7:30 pm at Trinity. (Free will offering with all proceeds to support Manitou Youth Programs).

All are also welcome to attend the special city-wide “Celebration of Ministry” worship service at Trinity United Church Sunday May 24th at 1:15 pm. The Right Reverend Gary Paterson, Moderator of The United Church of Canada will be leading our worship which will include Communion and special musical offerings by the Manitou Communal Choir, Trinity’s Junior Choir, the Joyful Bells and The Heavenly Hosts.



United Church Urgent Appeal for the Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund
Donations to the Relief Fund are urgently needed. Donate online at
or drop off a cheque to Trinity United Church with a note on the cheque for Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund. The government of Canada is going to match donations up to May 25th. Each donation goes directly to support relief, rehabilitation and restoration efforts in the country.

Next Sunday May 31st we are joined by The J.O.Y. Band who will fill our worship service with wonderful music.
Immediately following the service, the Men’s “Trinity Testosterone” canoe group are meeting in the fireside room.  There are some spots available so if you are interested in joining in for the Trinity Testosterone Canoe weekend (June 26-28th) please plan to attend!
Truth and Reconciliation Walk
Also on Sunday May 31st folk are invited to gather St. Andrew’s United Church at 1:30 pm for a short worship gathering, followed by a walk down Main Street West to the Residential school Memorial on Nipissing Number 10.  We are honoured to have the support and cooperation of Chief Marianna Couchie and the people of Nipissing First Nation for the walk.    The total distance (one way is 5.2 kilometres).  We plan on having vehicles waiting at the other end of the walk to ferry people back to St. Andrew’s once our time at the memorial concludes.  I would be most grateful if you could share these plans with the folks in your congregation and plan to join us for the walk.  It is a powerful witness to the pain of our collective past and a equally strong commitment to walking a better path in the future.
