The Murray Scholarship is administered by the Eastern Synod, and was established in 2012 by a donation from Trinity Church to honour our long-serving musician, Gywin Murray. The purpose is to support students who are either studying music or are otherwise musically oriented. The following are considered when awarding the scholarship:
- Christian character
- Financial need
- Academic achievement
- Dedicated participation in the Church – specifically in the area of music
- Dedicated participation in the Community
The application deadline is Monday, May 14th, 2018. These funds are available for the school year 2018‐2019.
You can find the application online here.
On Monday, May 16th, folks gathered in Trinity Hall to pack 40 baby bundles for Canadian Lutheran World Relief!
CLWR’s humanitarian shipments, including baby bundles and other “We Care Kits”, are greatly valued throughout the world because of their high quality and usefulness.
As Christians everywhere prepare for Advent (the church season of waiting and preparation that precedes Christmas), Trinity is reaching out to communities through various Christmas projects!
Our Advent mitten tree goes up next Sunday. All types of mittens are needed to keep hands warm in our community this winter. We are creating a Christmas Hamper for the Wilmot Family Resource Centre for one large family. We Care Bags have arrived for us to fill! This year, Trinity is preparing Living and Learning kits, which contain school and hygiene supplies. These bags are available in the back of the church. Please take a bag, and a list of contents to collect, and have fun gathering supplies. Please attach your offering envelope with $5 to the outside of the We Care Bag.
On Monday, December 14th, at 9:00 am Christmas Cheer cookie tins will be prepared for distribution within our community. This year we hope to do 40 – 50 tins so we will need a lot of cookies. If you are able to help with the preparation or delivery of the tins please be in touch with our church office!
In addition to these projects, donations can be made to CLWR for Syrian refugees coming to Canada. Donations will receive matching government grants until December 31st. As well, donations are also being received for Camp Edgewood, and will also receive a matching grant if given before Christmas.
