COVID-19 Response

WORSHIP

We have returned to in-person worship again, effective October 25th. We will continue with in-person worship, barring any change in recommendations from the Province of Ontario or public health officials. 

To maintain mandatory physical distancing in the worship space, reservations are required to be made in advance for worship services. If you wish to attend in-person worship on Sunday morning, please contact the church office by the previous Tuesday. Email preferred: mail@telc.ca

We have prepared a short 5-minute video on what you can expect when returning to worship at Trinity during the Amber Stage. Click here to watch.

Worship services will still be live-streamed on Facebook at 9:30 for all those choosing to worship from home. Details for joining online worship are found here.

OFFERINGS

Please remember that Trinity relies on financial offerings to continue our ministry with as few interruptions as possible. Our regular Trinity folks are encouraged to sign up for Pre-Authorized Remittance, mail a cheque to the church, or make an in-person donation if you have pre-registered to attend on a Sunday morning.

For friends of Trinity who would also like to send an offering, donations can be made directly on our website here. Please note that all online donations made through this channel will receive a tax receipt from Canada Helps, who handles the online donation transaction on our behalf. (Trinity folks… these donations will not be duplicated on your Trinity tax receipt.)

Blessing of the Animals

This year on the church calendar, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment, is on Sunday, October 4th. You are invited on this day, to bring
your family’s pet(s) to a “Blessing of the Animals”. We’ll meet on the church lawn (beside 272 Peel Street) at 4:00 pm for a short blessing, approximately 20 minutes. You are welcome to bring a lawn chair if you’d prefer to sit.

While this is an outdoor service, physical distancing will need to be maintained. We also need to discourage the mingling of pets, so please ensure your pet is on a leash. Kindly bring
along your poop ’n’ scoop baggies for any souvenirs they leave behind. (The property guys will appreciate it when cutting the grass!)

If the event needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather, Pastor Tanya will give an update at online worship on October 4th at 9:30 am.

Monday Morning Meetup

On Monday mornings through the end of September, weather permitting, you are invited to pop by Trinity for an informal outdoor, physically-distanced visit with Pastor Tanya.

From 10:00 am to 11:00 am, we’ll have a few chairs set up on Trinity’s Peel Street lawn, right beside 272 Peel Street. (You can bring your own chair, if you prefer.)

Fill a Backpack Project

We invite you to help out with Trinity’s “Fill a Backpack” project in support of oneROOF Youth Services in Kitchener, which provides support to homeless and at-risk youth in our region.

Purchase a backpack and fill it with newly purchased items from the following list:

  • Underwear (adult male and female sizes)
  • Socks (adult sizes)
  • Deodorant
  • Travel-size shampoo/conditioner
  • Bug spray and sunblock

We have a couple of drop-off points for backpacks! Call the church office for information on where to drop yours off. We also encourage you to remember oneROOF in your financial
offerings through Trinity.

Thank you for your generosity in supporting our community partners!
