Welcome to Trinity!  If this is your first visit, please note that we do not take a collection during the service, but your offering may be placed on the plate at the back of the church as you enter or leave.  Also, there are many occasions during the service where we stand for lengthy periods.  If you are more comfortable sitting or kneeling, please feel free to do so.

We Respond to God’s Word


Celebrant: Let us affirm our faith.

People:   We are called to be a community of faith.

We believe in God.

We believe in the goodness of God, the presence of God in all creation, and the nearness of God’s love.

We believe in Jesus, the Christ.

We believe that in him, God came to free all people from sin.

We believe that God was and is revealed in human life, that out of human suffering may come healing,

that out of death comes new life.

We believe in the Eternal Spirit, who moves among God’s people and invites the world into God’s presence.

We believe that there is one world, enfolded in eternity.

God calls us to be co-creators of a new world peace and wholeness in which the purpose of God will be fulfilled.

Therefore, we commit ourselves to be a community of faith, sisters and brothers in Jesus Christ.

The Prayers of the People:

Leader: Let us come before God in, praising and blessing and adoring our ever-living God. In our Diocese of Ottawa, let us pray for those in the parishes of North Dundas; St. Paul’s, Hazeldean-Kanata; at Saint Paul University and the students in the Anglican Studies Program; and for the volunteers and staff at the Diocesan Archives. For the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence). For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest, for all the clergy and people.  O God, who spoke through the prophets and who lives in the only begotten one, show to your church all things.

People:   We beg that your love well up within us, that our whole lives may worship you, O Lord.

Leader:    God of the people of Israel, Sovereign of every nation, grant your vision of mercy and justice to all who rule in the earth.

People:   Prosper the labours of those seeking peace.

Leader:    As­sist all who work for reconciliation in the streets and for refor­mation in prisons.  O Holy One with the pierced limbs and side, bind us to all whose who suffer.

People:   Keep us mindful of all innocent victims, all the oppressed, all the dying.

Leader:    Reveal to us those who are de­spised, the outcast, the alien, and the forlorn. Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence), we pray to you O Lord. We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). Give them eternal rest.

 People:  Transfigure us by the gift of faith for our life’s journey, until we behold face to face your glorious beauty, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

LENTEN STUDY-When you’re saying the Apostles Creed have you wondered if Mary really was a virgin or why Jesus went to hell, or why do we say we believe in “the holy catholic church” if we’re not Catholic? Join us in the Canterbury Room, on Thursday, March 31st, starting at 7 pm until 8:30pm as we continue to explore what we say in our Affirmation of Faith. The series concludes on April 7th.

OPEN TABLE.  Trinity will again be on duty at All Saints’ Sandy Hill next Sunday, March 27th, this time serving dessert and clearing up.  We will need to take at least eight pans of squares.  Homemade are preferable to store bought so that we can guarantee there are no nuts or nut essences.  Please sign up at the back of the church if you can bring squares next Sunday or can be a team member.

Would you like to host COFFEE HOUR after the 10 a.m. service in coming weeks.  There is lots of choice of Sundays on the sign-up sheet in Bender Hall!

We would like to get THE NURSERY going again. If you are a teenager, or have one at home, and you would like to help out with

the nursery please speak to Sarah

 We are happy to credit volunteer hours for school.


CHANGE FOR CHANGE.  Don’t forget to drop all your spare change into the World Vision bucket for Sheila.  Check the scrap book for the latest updates on her progress.

THE CHOIR OF SOUTHMINSTER UNITED CHURCH will perform Faure’s Requiem on Saturday, March 26th at 7p.m. Tickets are $20(adults) and $10(students), available from Southminister’s Church Office,  or at the door.  More details on the beautiful poster on the noticeboard in Bender Hall.

The annual meeting of the CARLETON UNIVERSITY ECUMENICAL CHAPLAINCY is on Friday, March 25th, starting at noon, in Room 3328,Mackenzie building.  Guest speaker is Dr. Tom Sherwood, former chaplain at Carleton and now the McGeachy Senior Scholar in the United Church of Canada, studying the religiosity, spirituality and values of Canadians born in the 1980s.  For more information, call 613-520-4449 or visit .

The FUTURE OF THE CENTRETOWN CHURCHES SOCIAL ACTION COMMITTEE is in some doubt, due to lack of volunteers in leadership roles.  The organization  provides many important services to the marginalized and needy in centretown areas, particularly through the Centretown Emergency Food Centre.  Nominations are sought for the annual meeting on Wednesday, March 30th, at 7:30 p.m. in the Centretown United Church’s Church Hall (lower level.  If you can help, or would like more information, please call (613) 236-2299.


If you have any announcement that didn’t make this week’s bulletin, please let Rev. Andrea know prior to the service and she will ensure that it is read.
