Rev. Stan Parkhouse

November 10, 1923 – December 8, 2022

Rev. Stan Parkhouse was one of our VAM’s here at Trinity and Providence. His “Celebration of Life” was held at City View United Church in Ottawa on December 15, 2022. We were blessed to have him

and his wife, Jean with us.

Letting Go

When we celebrated Jesus' baptism, we used stones as symbols of things we need to let go of, and as signs of our commitment to walk with God. Lose yours? Gave it away? There are more on the table in the narthex. Please enjoy and share!

With thanks, Rev. Dr. Bob Root

There is a Lenten Study Group on Thursdays, which began on February 23 for six weeks, at 10:30 a.m. “Good Courage” aims to inspire with honest testimonies from people who have had the courage to follow their hearts, to hope against hope, and to faithfully work towards a better world. In these pages, find comfort with examples of practical and courageous hope in the midst of despair, and accept the challenge to deepen your theological understanding of hope, resurrection, and new life.

Donations for Turkey and Syria

On Monday, February 6, a series of powerful earthquakes struck southern Türkiye (Turkey) near the border with Syria. The quakes caused extensive damage and loss of lives. At time of writing, the death toll has surpassed 20,000 people, and thousands more are missing.

The winter weather makes the situation even more dire for people who are without shelter, warm clothes, blankets, water, and food. Some of the people affected by the earthquake were already displaced by conflict.


Today, people need emergency shelter, blankets, mattresses, clean water, food, and hygiene items.


We join Mission & Service partners the Middle East Council of Churches, ACT Alliance, the Canadian Food grains Bank, and the Humanitarian Coalition to show tangible support for the people of Türkiye and Syria.


You can be a part of these efforts by donating now. Thank you for your generosity.


If you wish to donate to people who were affected by the earthquake in Turkey and Syria, please mark "Turkey/Syria" on your envelope, cheque or E-transfer if donating through Trinity United Church.
