Volunteers in the Narthex for Sunday Mornings

With the Covid-19 numbers increasing, we will continue with our safety procedures on Sunday mornings in the new year. Our volunteers during the fall have been outstanding! We now need volunteers to be Greeters/Screeners, Contact Recorders and Ushers prior to church services beginning in January. If you can assist, please contact me by phone. I'll also have my calendar with me on Sunday mornings. With heartfelt thanks! Connie Picken (705-738-2863).

PLEASE NOTE: The Kawartha Mission in Lindsay are no longer collecting the plastic milk bags, therefore, please Do Not send in any more into the church.


A big thank you to Rev. Andrew and the Trinity church family for the prayer support that I experienced over the past months.

Thanks for the cards and phone calls which I received from the members of the Prayer Circle and Pastoral Care Committee. I now have a new heart valve thanks to the doctors at Southlake Regional Hospital in Newmarket.

Many thanks to all, Joyce Jones

The 2022 envelopes are ready for pick up at the church. If you do not see a box with your name on it and would like to receive a box for your Giving's, please contact me at:

Donations can also be offered through monthly preauthorized remittance (PAR) or E-transfers.

NEW: News from Trinity's Reopening Committee

We sincerely thank the members of our congregation for following the protocols that have been put in place so that we can successfully have Sunday Church Services again. We also thank the many volunteers who have helped with screening, recording contact information, ushering and running the technology equipment. The sense of teamwork is so appreciated!

An update from the Reopening Committee from the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit:

1.) If the paper being handed out at a church service is a single use item and will be taken away at the end of the service, that is allowed. (We would not want “Order of Service” bulletins left in the sanctuary for someone else to have to pick up.)

2.) Only a service can be held in the sanctuary with over 25 people in attendance, with masks worn and social distancing maintained. If a meeting was to be held in the sanctuary, it cannot exceed 25 people.

News from the Knitting Group

The Knitting Group has returned to Trinity! New members are welcome as projects are created for shut-ins and various people in need. The Knitting Group will meet every second Tuesday and the dates will be posted under “Special Activities This Week at Trinity”. Covid Protocols must be followed (signing the contact sheet upon entry, hand sanitizing, wearing masks and maintaining proper social distance). For further information about the Knitting Group, contact Gail Lewis at 705-738-1279. Next meeting January 4, 2022@ 2 p.m.


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.

Only those who would like to change their status, please contact me at:
