Recent news regarding the Omicron Covid Variant …
is being monitored carefully and the situation seems to change daily. This is a time for members of our community of faith to make personal decisions to protect their own health and safety during these difficult times. Trinity will remain open for Sunday services and livestreaming will continue Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. Having options will allow individuals to chose what is best for them.
Until the number of cases of the Omicron Covid Variant subsides, we will have a self check in process in place in the Narthex on Sunday mornings. We will not be asking for volunteers at this time as we wish to keep everyone as safe as possible. The screening questions will be posted for you to read; individuals/families will personally sign the contact sheets (with sanitized pens); and you will then proceed into the sanctuary. We will have a committee member in the Narthex to assist you if necessary. Please remember to wear your masks, maintain a social distance of at least six feet and use hand sanitizer. Once again, thank you for your patience and cooperation as we continue to work through this situation together.
Prayer Request and Pastoral Care
If you have a prayer request, please call the church office at (705)738-5135 and we will pass your request through to our active Prayer Circle and Pastoral Care Teams or you may call Rev. Walter Murray for pastoral emergencies while Rev. Andrew Macpherson is away.
Best wishes to all those who have Birthdays and Anniversaries in January!

With the new year coming shortly, I’ll be preparing the 2022 envelope boxes which will be ready for pick up soon. I wanted to inquire whether you still would like to receive the offering boxes as usual.
Some have decided to continue with their offerings via e-transfer, some have decided to continue using their regular envelopes and some still are preparing monthly cheques. (PAR is always the preferred option.)
If you usually donate using offering envelopes and you would NOT like to receive a box of envelopes for 2022, please let me know, so that you may donate to the church using the method best suited to you.
