Christian Life at Holy Trinity includes:
The Christian journey begins with Baptism, our initiation into the community of Christ. The Sacrament of Baptism is for people of any age. Youth and adults are baptized when they profess the Christian faith for themselves with the community. Children of all ages are baptized on the basis of the faith of their parents and welcomed to the Altar – the Family Table of God’s Community where we share in Holy Communion together.
YOUTH AND WORSHIP
The centre of the Christian faith and community life is the Holy Eucharist. Here we share the story of faith with readings from the bible, reflections on Scripture and life, music, prayer and Holy Communion. All baptized people share in worship and we encourage all people to explore their faith in worship whether in traditional liturgy (Sundays at 8 am and Wednesdays at 10 am) or contemporary language (Sundays at 10:30 am). Liturgy means the work of the people. You are invited to share in readings, music, offering the prayers of the people, serving at the altar, Altar Chapter, becoming a Eucharistic minister and other aspects of the planning and celebration of the liturgy.
Parents of small children share in the ministry of the Sunday Nursery beginning at 10:30 am. Screening in Faith is an important part of our ministry which insures that we provide a secure environment for our children.
SUNDAY CHURCH SCHOOL
Gathers each Sunday at 10:30 am in the Parish Hall. Following classes, students and teachers are welcomed by the whole parish family at the offertory when they share their work, songs and other activities as the parish family prepares for Holy Communion in which we share in the central act of our Christian faith Every baptized person is a communicant and so we welcome all at the Table of the Lord.
LIFE IN THE EUCHARIST AND CONFIRMATION
Baptized people of all ages are welcomed to the Lord’s Table weekly and children (age 7-12) are encouraged to participate in the LIFE IN THE EUCHARIST program during the Easter Season. Those who are in High School may register to prepare for Confirmation when our bishop (chief pastor) visits our parish church.
Young people who have completed the Life in the Eucharist program are prepared to serve at the altar and at parish suppers and other functions. Some of our young people learn about music and share in singing the liturgy with both traditional and modern music. We plan times recreational and spiritual activities and an annual car wash. Contact Alan Knight, Rector or Deacon Elaine for information and timetables.
