TRINITY SUSPENDING ALL USE OF THE BUILDING UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

We are suspending all use of this building as a public facility until further notice because of the COVID 19 pandemic. All gatherings are cancelled including worship and events.

This decision comes after I met this morning with Dr. Denise Marshall, who strongly recommended this action, and then a conversation and our Board Chair Catherine Tompkins.  This decision is not taken lightly or easily. However, I know from my experience of the 2016 wildfire in Fort McMurray how quickly and unexpectedly circumstances can change.  I am confident that this decision is a prudent one with the health and well-being of all of us in mind, and so I thank you in advance for your understanding.

It is also important that we continue to be connected, even if at a distance.  And so:

You can get updates about the status of the building on our website www.trinityunitedgrimsby.ca

We will continue to send email reflections, announcements and updates.

We will ensure that everyone in our congregation is contacted.

We will continue to explore ways we can care for one another.

And we will continue to have worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30 using FaceBook Live, including prayer, scripture and a sermon!

Trinity’s Worship services can be streamed from our YouTube & Facebook pages:

 ~The quality of our streaming is better watching the service through Trinity’s YouTube page~

We may be feeling relieved, worried, uncertain and many other things about this decision. However, know that we are keeping the care of our congregation and our wider community at the forefront.

Some words that Dr. Denise said to me this morning continue to resonate with me: the need to act with tender loving courage.

May we continue to hold one another with care and prayer.

Blessings,

Rev. Donalee

Horseshoe Falls Regional Council     *****NEW*****

Thank you for your patience during these first ten months of our life as a regional council! We are charting new territory and developing new materials while engaging new staff and leaders. That takes time and we appreciate your understanding that not all details are in place yet.  Of particular interest will be in the information under the tab marked “Community of Faith“. There are two sets of Toolkits available: Pastoral Relations Toolkits and Congregational Support Toolkits. Both have helpful resources. Please take a moment to review these.

The Minutes of meetings can be found under the tab “About”. Hover over Regional Council and the link will appear.

The Staff Contact information is easily available on the site. Additionally, there is a spot where people can sign up to receive the regional council newsletter. Please encourage members of your community of faith to subscribe.
