A Message from our Chairperson, Cathy Bennett
Trinity Church Family:
It has been a very long year and a half since we have been able to gather together at Trinity.
I want to thank you all so very much for continuing to support Trinity during this difficult and trying time.
As you have heard Trinity’s doors will be open for in-house service starting September 19th.
I want to thank the re-opening committee for working hard to make this happen.
Some of you may still not feel comfortable coming into the church. That is understandable given all that we have been through. The service will be live streamed and also will be available on You-Tube shortly after the service.
For those who are okay coming back you will notice many changes in the church that have been set in place based on the guidelines set forth by the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit and the Provincial Government.
The sanctuary has been set up with chairs 2 meters apart. There are single, double, three and four chairs together spaced as per the guidelines. Masks MUST be worn at all times. There will be someone at the door to sign you in asking you for your name and phone number. There will be ushers who will escort you to your seat. If you have a coat, it must be taken with you to your seat. Name tags will not be available. In order to limit contact, bulletins will not be available.
Everything will be on the power point screen and through email. If you are feeling sick, we ask that you do not attend, just to be on the safe side.
I know this sounds like a lot of rules, but trust me, once you are seated
it will feel so great to be back together. Of course, if things change and the Covid numbers start to go back up and the province is shut down we will not be able to open. That is why it is so important that we ALL get our Covid-19 vaccine, not only for our own sake but also for everyone around us including friends and family.
Looking forward to better days ahead!
